Antlerless deer proposal to expand muzzleloader season, hearings May 11 and 16

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board recently voted on the Fish & Wildlife Department’s proposal for antlerless deer hunting for 2017. Public hearings will be held May 11 in Randolph and May 16 in Manchester. “We are recommending an increase in muzzleloader season antlerless deer permits this year to account for the increase in the deer population following another mild winter in 2017,” said Nick Fortin, deer project leader for the Fish & Wildlife Department. “Much of Vermont has experienced two consecutive very mild winters. As a result, the recommendation is intended to stabilize or reduce deer densities in some parts of the state while allowing for moderate population growth in other areas.”The department’s annual recommendation is based on population estimates, biological data, winter severity data, and deer sighting rates reported by hunters, as well as input from game wardens, foresters and the public.”We expect the statewide deer population to be about 157,000 prior to the start of the 2017 deer seasons,” said Fortin.Hunting for antlerless deer is proposed statewide for the October 7-November 3 and December 2-10 archery season. Last year, hunters took 2,595 antlerless deer during the archery season.One deer of either sex would be allowed for youths during the November 4-5 youth weekend hunt. Youths took 885 antlerless deer during the 2016 youth weekend hunt.The December 2-10 muzzleloader season would have 24,500 antlerless permits distributed in 18 of Vermont’s 21 Wildlife management Units (WMU), which is estimated to result in 3,608 antlerless deer being taken.The Fish & Wildlife Department’s antlerless deer hunting proposal for 2017 and the Fish & Wildlife Board’s recommended permits by each WMU are on Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s website ( is external)). Public comments on the proposal may be emailed to [email protected](link sends e-mail) by May 23, 2017.The department held three deer hunting public hearings earlier and will hold two more in May. The meetings will be held 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday May 11 at Randolph Union High School, 15 Forest Street, Randolph, VT 05060 and on Tuesday May 16 at Burr and Burton Academy, 57 Seminary Avenue, Manchester, VT 05254.Source: Department of Fish and Wildlifelast_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Rob Gronkowski, Sony Michel, Allen Robinson impacting Week 10 fantasy rankings

first_imgWEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAllen Robinson injury newsRobinson was out for the second-straight game last week, as a groin injury prevented him from suiting up against the Bills. However, it’s notable that he did log a limited practice last Friday, so he is on the right track as he tries to return from the injury.If Robinson can improve in practice and get on the field earlier this week, he should have a chance to suit up against the Lions. The first practice report on Wednesday should help clarify his status a bit more, and we’ll have updates on that throughout the week. If Robinson misses more time, Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel, and Tarik Cohen will continue to see plenty of targets in the Bears offense. Week 10 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs Sony Michel playing in Week 10?Michel (knee) has been absent for the Patriots’ last two contests, but he was able to practice last week before ultimately being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He ended up sitting out, but this week, his prognosis appears to be solid.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Michel is expected to return to action against the Titans in Week 10. He just needs to avoid suffering any setbacks in practice. He’ll need to be monitored in practice this week, but he is definitely trending in the right direction.With Michel returning, James White will see a slight downgrade solely because his volume will go down a bit. Still, he’ll be a really good RB2 (RB1 in PPR formats) and could outproduce Michel if the Patriots ease him back into action, so he belongs in starting lineups.The biggest negative fantasy impact from this injury is to Cordarrelle Patterson, who likely won’t see more than a couple of carries per game moving forward. He had been serving as the complement to White with Michel out, but now he’ll see less action on offense. He’s still worth stashing as a handcuff (who’s only eligible at WR because, again, we’re talking about the Patriots here), but until we see what his role in the backfield is, he should be left on fantasy benches.MORE WEEK 10: Top waiver wire pickups | RB handcuff chartRob Gronkowski injury updateAnother year, another injury to Gronk. For two of the past three weeks, Gronkowski has sat out with a back issue that flared up in practice. Moving forward, his status is week-to-week, according to WEEI’s Ryan Hannable (via Adam Schefter), and that means that he could be out for Week 10.With the Patriots’ bye approaching in Week 11, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the team elect to sit Gronk this week as a precaution. After all, Gronk has struggled with injuries in the past, so why would they risk his health as they prepare for a postseason run? They’ve won six straight games anyway, so it seems possible — if not, probable — that Gronk could get another week off just to buy him some extra rest going into the bye.If Gronk is out, the team’s tight end group won’t produce a viable fantasy target. Instead, guys like Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman, and James White will get stock-ups as they get more opportunities to catch passes. If you have Gronk on your fantasy roster, check out our Week 10 TE rankings for the best streaming options available. There are a couple of big-time Patriots players that should soon return from injuries. Sony Michel and Rob Gronkowski both have a chance to playing against the Titans in Week 10, but a looming bye week could cause the Pats to play it a bit safe. (Classic Pats, right?) In addition to that duo, Bears receiver Allen Robinson is attempting to return from a groin injury that has kept him out of action in each of the past two weeks. These injury issues could necessitate moves on the waiver wire for fantasy football owners, and it could also have an impact on fantasy rankings and start ’em, sit ’em decisions.As the week goes along, we’ll provide you with more injury updates.
