RUTLAND — Hunters who provided the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department with a tooth from their deer last year can now find out how old their deer was by visiting www.vtfishandwildlife.com.
The oldest deer harvested was a 20-year-old doe, taken by a youth hunter in Braintree. This is tied with a road-killed doe from 2016 as the oldest deer ever documented in Vermont.
The oldest buck was 12 years old and shot in Ferrisburgh. It matched three bucks harvested in 2016 and 2017 as the oldest bucks ever documented in Vermont.
