• Vermont Gov. James Douglas signed into law a special moose permit lottery for veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This year, five of Vermont’s 1,260 moose-hunting permits will be set aside for returning veterans and they will be allowed to apply for the regular, statewide lottery, as well as the special one for them. If you’re a Veteran and possess, or are eligible to receive, a campaign ribbon for Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom, and a Vermont resident, check box 4 on the 2008 Vermont Moose Permit Application to be included in a special priority drawing. For more information refer to www.vtfishandwildlife.com/hunttrap_lottery.cfm.

• A recent decision by the Missouri Conservation Commission extended small-game hunting and fishing permit exemptions to all nonresident military veterans who have service-related disabilities of 60% or more or who were prisoners of war during military service the same hunting and fishing permit exemptions as resident disabled veterans and allowing such nonresident veterans to purchase resident permits. The change is not an exemption from all permit requirements. They still must purchase Missouri deer and turkey hunting, migratory bird hunting and trapping permits if they want to engage in those activities. Exempt veterans must carry a certified statement of eligibility from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) when purchasing permits or exercising permit privileges. For more information, contact the Missouri Department of Conservation, P.O. Box 180, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0180 or refer to http://mdc.mo.gov.
