HARRISBURG – The way hunters apply for PA antlerless deer licenses is about to change for the first time in decades. Senate Bill 431, which would allow hunters to buy antlerless licenses through the HuntFishPA automated licensing service, was signed into law. When it takes effect with the 2023-24 license year, antlerless licenses will be available for purchase online or in person at any license issuing agent. The PA Game Commission and numerous hunting organizations supported the bill, calling it a way to modernize license sales. Until now, hunters applied for antlerless licenses via mail through county treasurers, the only entity permitted to sell them.
