Special Note: Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom

Vermont Statute Annotated Title 10, Chapter 105, Section 4254

(2) If the board establishes a moose hunting season, there shall be established a program to set aside five moose permits for Vermont residents who have served on active duty in any branch of the armed forces of the United States and who have been awarded or are eligible to receive a campaign ribbon for Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.

The department of fish and wildlife shall adopt a procedure to implement the set-aside program for veterans who have been awarded or are eligible to receive a campaign ribbon for Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom, including a method to award applicants preference points and a method by which veterans who applied for but failed to receive a permit in one hunting season are awarded priority in the subsequent moose hunting season.

The procedure adopted under this subdivision shall be consistent with the preference system for the permit auction authorized under subdivision (1) of this subsection. Veterans awarded a moose permit under this subsection must possess a valid Vermont hunting or combination license in order to purchase a moose permit. The department of fish and wildlife shall coordinate with the department of veterans affairs to provide notice to eligible veterans of the moose permits set-aside under this subsection.
