HARRISBURG – Beginning Aug. 21, the Pennsylvania Game Commission will accept antlerless deer license applications from nonresident hunters. Applications from resident hunters were accepted beginning Aug. 7.
The Game Commission has developed a “Doe License Update” page on its Web site (
www.pgc.state.pa.us) to provide hunters additional information on the antlerless license application process, including regular updates about the number of antlerless licenses available by Wildlife Management Unit. Look for it in the “Quick Clicks” box in the upper right-hand corner of the agency’s homepage.
As of Friday, WMU 2F joins WMU 2G in this list of WMUs that have exhausted its supply of antlerless deer licenses. However, hunters are not out of options when looking to hunt antlerless deer in these WMUs thanks to the availability of Deer Management Assistance Program coupons for the Allegheny National Forest, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources state forests and parks, and privately-owned properties. Coupons provided by landowners to hunters may be redeemed from the Game Commission for a DMAP antlerless deer permit to be used on a particular property.
