BRUNSWICK — Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have completed surveys in northeast Vermont to identify areas used by white-tailed deer during winter. The results, expected later this year, will inform habitat management on state and federal lands, as well as population objectives for deer. Biologists once considered the Nulhegan Basin in the Northeast Kingdom (Orleans, Essex and Caledonia counties) to be the largest deer wintering area in the state, providing winter cover for as many as 1,000 deer. However, biologists, landowners and hunters suspect changes in habitat and other factors have caused deer to now migrate further east toward the Connecticut River and New Hampshire.
