Victory Bog Wildlife Management Area

This State of Vermont Wildlife Management Area is forested with red, white and black spruce, balsam fir, red and sugar maple, yellow birch and beech. There is a large, varied wetland complex of ponds, bogs, wooded swamps and sedge meadows. One percent of the area is in old fields. The Moose River and several small streams flow through thought this WMA. Expect to find white-tailed deer, black bear, moose, beaver, mink, muskrat, otter, coyote, red fox, bobcat, snowshoe hare, woodcock, ruffed grouse, black, mallard and wood ducks, hooded merganser, wild turkeys, brook and brown trout. Good birding opportunity, particularly for boreal species such as gray jay and blackbacked woodpeckers. You can walk into the bog using the trail from the parking area at Damon's Crossing. The trail is the former railroad bed for the Victory Railroad.
