Back Country Sports Buys Guns

Have old or no longer used guns taking up space in your safe? We buy used guns, and also accept them in trade, or partial trade, toward new merchandise. Bring in your good quality, well-maintained, used firearm, and maybe make some quick cash, or go home with something new to shoot.

Official Big Game Reporting Station

Back Country Sports is an official big game reporting center for the State of Vermont. During the applicable seasons, stop by to weigh and report your deer, bear, or turkey. We’ll make you "facebook famous", and you may even go home with a t-shirt! We especially love to see the kids’ accomplishments, so don’t miss youth weekend turkey and deer reporting. See you at the scales!

You can purchase your fishing and hunting licenses at our store. Whether you’re buying your first-ever license, or renewing for your 99th season, we’ll get you legally on your way to enjoying your pursuits in our beautiful Vermont waters, fields, and woods. If you have a permanent or a lifetime license, we are happy to print a current-year copy for you.
