Northeast Wilderness Trust allows hunting of abundant prey species (with some restrictions) by permission on several of the properties we own. The permission process is quick, easy, and all online. To receive hunting permission, simply scroll down to read the rules and then fill out and submit the online permission form below. If you have already received hunting permission for 2020, you do not need to apply again.

If you are unable to complete the online process for any reason, you may click here to download and print the application form. Please mail your completed form to: Northeast Wilderness Trust, 17 State Street, Suite 302, Montpelier VT 05602. If you are still unable to apply for permission using either of the above options, you may call the office at 802.224.1000 and request a paper copy of our hunting regulations and permission. When requesting paper copies please do so at least 3 weeks prior your planned hunting trip to allow sufficient processing time.

*Please note that by requesting hunting permission you are also agreeing to be added to our mailing list.
