Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: Legislation Authorizing the Sale of Antlerless Deer Licenses Through the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System
In the near future, I will be reintroducing legislation from last session (House Bill 231) that would provide for the sale of antlerless deer hunting licenses through the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s (PGC) Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System.

Currently, hunters apply for antlerless deer licenses by sending an application to a county treasurer or similar official. Unfortunately, counties do not always have the financial resources or staff to process license applications in a timely manner.

In light of the PGC’s recent updates to the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System, we now have the ability to ensure that hunters have a more convenient and efficient way of applying for and receiving hunting licenses. With that said, the legislation that I will be reintroducing would transfer the antlerless deer license application process from counties to the PGC through the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System.

I hope you will join me in supporting this important legislation.

Introduced as HB275
