Visit VT Fish & Wildlife at the Yankee Show, Jan. 20-22

The annual Yankee Sportsman's Classic show will be held January 20, 21 and 22 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction, and the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is inviting you to visit their exhibits and attend their seminars at the show.

"We are looking forward to talking with as many people as possible at the show," said Nicole Meier, information and education specialist with the department. "It's a great opportunity for us to share the latest information about fish and wildlife, and it gives people a chance to talk to us about fish and wildlife issues. Our wardens, biologists and other staff will be at our exhibits."

The 2017 hunting, fishing and trapping lawbooks and optional Vermont big game tags will be available at Fish & Wildlife's exhibit booth. The free tags are offered as a durable alternative to paper tags on licenses and may be used to tag deer, bear or turkeys. Hunters, anglers, and trappers will also be able to buy their 2017 licenses.

Fish & Wildlife's deer biologist Nick Fortin will give a presentation on the deer herd at Noon on Saturday.

Show hours are Noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Learn more about the show at: (http://yankeeclassic.net).
