Beginning June 11, Pennsylvania hunting and furtaker licenses for the 2012-13 seasons will go on sale, according to Carl G. Roe, agency executive director.
Senior lifetime hunting and furtaker license holders, as well as senior combination license holders, must renew their licenses at this time. While senior lifetime license holders need not pay a license or transaction fee, they must obtain the current year's license and harvest tags.
While the 2012-13 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest regulations booklets won't be available until the week of June 18, a complete version of the publication will be posted on the agency's website. Those who purchase their licenses prior to delivery of the digests can return to the issuing agent and obtain a copy once the digests arrive in the store.
For the 2012-13 license year, all fees are the same as they have been since 1999. There is a 70-cent transaction fee attached to the purchase of each license and permit.
All license agents can issue:
Senior lifetime licenses;
Hunters also can purchase the special spring gobbler license, which allows them to harvest a second gobbler in the 2013 spring gobbler season.
