'Doe' License Applications Accepted Starting Monday

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

A new era in antlerless deer license sales will dawn on Monday, July 13, and the Pa. Game Commission and as well as Cameron and Potter County county treasurers say they’re ready.

Treasurers will begin accepting applications – through the mail only -- three weeks earlier than in past years, starting Monday.

For the first time, hunters will be able to submit an application to any county treasurer. The request will list the hunter’s first three choices, in order of preference, for a specific Wildlife Management Unit. If an applicant’s first choice has no licenses available, the county treasurer will move to the second or third WMU preference. 

Fees are the same as they have been since 1999.  However, there is a 70-cent transaction fee, paid directly to the company that runs the Pennsylvania Automated License System (PALS). Checks must be made payable to “County Treasurer” for $6.70.

County treasurers and other license agents can now issue senior lifetime licenses; elk and bobcat drawing applications; resident landowner reduced-fee hunting licenses and Deer Management Assistance Program harvest permits.
