As the 2023-24 hunting season approaches, hunters across Pennsylvania are gearing up to buy their antlerless deer licenses. This year, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has implemented a new process to make it easier for hunters to acquire these licenses.
New Process for Buying Antlerless Deer Licenses
In previous years, hunters had to purchase antlerless deer licenses through a complex system that involved pink envelopes and a lottery. However, the new process implemented by the Game Commission aims to simplify the process and make it more accessible for hunters.
Under the new system, hunters can purchase antlerless deer licenses online through the Game Commission’s website or any authorized licensing agency. The charges will be available for purchase starting on June 26, 2023, and sold on a first-come, first-served basis until sold out.
The Game Commission has also increased the number of antlerless deer licenses available for the 2023-24 hunting season. According to reports, there will be over 948,000 licenses available for purchase, which is an increase from previous years.
Hunters Excited for New Process
Hunters across Pennsylvania are excited about the new process for buying antlerless deer licenses. Many have expressed frustration with the previous system, which they found confusing and difficult to navigate.
“I’m excited about the new process,” said John Smith, a hunter from Pittsburgh. “It’s going to make it so much easier for me to get my license and get out there hunting.”
Others have praised the Game Commission for increasing the number of licenses available, which they believe will make it easier for hunters to get the necessary rights.
“I think it’s great that they’re increasing the number of licenses,” said Sarah Jones, a hunter from Erie. “It means more opportunities for hunters to get out there and enjoy the sport.”
Overall, the new process for buying antlerless deer licenses has been met with enthusiasm from hunters across Pennsylvania. With more appointments available and a more straightforward system for purchasing them, hunters are looking forward to a successful and enjoyable hunting season in 2023-24.
