  • Big Game Reporting Station thumbnail

    Big Game Reporting Station

    R&L Archery is an official Vermont Big Game Reporting Station (deer, bear, and turkey) with state-certified scales.
     We are also a Biological Check Station during Youth Deer Weekend and on the first weekend of Rifle Deer Season. Successful hunters on those weekends can meet wildlife biologists who will collect data on their deer that will help inform herd assessment and future management decisions.

    Help Collect Important Data

    Vermont law now requires successful bear hunters to collect a small pre-molar tooth from each harvested bear. The collection of this tooth is critical to providing important data for evaluating changes to the age structure of the bear population and for making population estimates.
     When you report your bear at R&L, you can pick up the required paperwork to accompany the tooth. A video showing how to extract it can be found here.

    The state is also conducting a deer study, and requests a tooth from your deer, as well. In 2016, they collected more than 4,600 teeth. Your can check the age of the deer you harvested in 2016 here.

  • Firearms Storage thumbnail

    Firearms Storage

    R&L Archery is a Vermont State-Certified Firearms Storage Location, so if you need a secure place to store your firearms we can help you for as short or as long a time period as needed. R&L Archery is also an approved storage facility for firearms that are required to be relinquished for a period of time.

    In 2014, the State of Vermont created a guideline for storing firearms seized by law enforcement or court-ordered to be relinquished. As gun enthusiasts, we saw an opportunity to help our fellow gun owners and ensure that any gun that was stored for an individual was also properly cared for and not just stored in a basement corner. We became one of the first certified firearms storage locations in Vermont. We also provide this service for gun owners who require temporary storage of their firearms due to any number of reasons, such as vacations, relocations, and estate settlements.

    Each firearm is inspected, documented, and photographed, then placed in our fireproof, temperature-controlled, security vault for the duration of its stay with us.

    First firearm: $13/month for the first 15 months; $4/month after the 15th month
    Additional firearms: $4/month per additional firearm
    Ammunition: $2/month per box
