HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Game Commission and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) are pleased to join with other fish and wildlife conservation agencies across the country to recognize Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 as National Hunting and Fishing Day! A proclamation from Gov. Tom Wolf recognizing Hunting and Fishing Day in Pennsylvania stated that “Hunting and angling offer participants an opportunity to connect with nature on a personal level while simultaneously providing food security, a sense of self-sufficiency, and both mental and physical health benefits.” Wolf credited the state’s hunters, trappers and anglers as being among the first in the nation to support the establishment of fish and wildlife conservation agencies and pioneering a self-imposed federal excise tax on hunting, fishing, and boating equipment to raise additional conservation funds. To purchase a Pennsylvania hunting or fishing license, customers can visit either agency’s website to connect to the HuntFishPA licensing system by going to huntfish.pa.gov or visit more than 700 retail license issuing agents.
