Vermont Guard finds camps on firing range
The Vermont National Guard has posted eviction notices at two hunting
camps illegally constructed on part of the federally owned Ethan Allen
Firing Range in northeastern Chittenden County.
Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Lloyd Goodrow said the two camps, along with
evidence of all-terrain-vehicle traffic, were discovered on the 11,000-acre
range about three weeks ago. He said the Guard has notified the Vermont
State Police about the camps but does not know who is responsible for
No-trespassing signs are posted prominently on the borders of the
sprawling range, which includes land in Bolton, Jericho and Underhill. The
range is used as a year-round training area for soldiers from Vermont and
Goodrow said live firing and military maneuvers conducted at the range
could put the lives of trespassers and soldiers at risk.
