MONTPELIER — Finding a gift that will continue to give for a full year is a challenge, but the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has a solution.

On its website, a license gift certificate for hunting and fishing licenses is available.

“It’s the perfect gift for a friend or family member who hunts or fishes,” said Cheri Waters, Fish and Wildlife’s licensing coordinator. “You can go to our website, fill out the gift certificate and pay for it online, and then you can print the certificate to present to your recipient.”

The gift certificate has a link in the license section of the department’s website, found at www.vtfishandwildlife.com. The person who receives the certificate must go to the website to redeem their certificate and purchase their licenses.

“If you have a friend or relative who hunts or fishes, this is an easy gift-giving solution,” said Waters. “The gift certificate will cover licenses for 2022 or for licenses in future years.”
