HARRSIBURG -- If you want to go doe hunting this season, you'll need to be fast on the trigger.
Antlerless deer licenses will go on sale on Monday for Pennsylvania residents. On July 29, non-Pennsylvania residents will be able to submit applications. Any unsold tags will be on sale for anyone that still wants one, starting Aug. 5 and again on Aug. 19.
Pennsylvania residents can submit a check or money order for $6.70 along with their application, while non-residents will fork over $26.70 along with the paperwork. Any application must be mailed directly to a county treasurer's office in the official envelope that hunters receive when they purchase a general hunting license.
If all licenses are sold, any payments received after that time will be returned by mail. Also, any applications received before the start of a given sales period will be returned.
During each sales round, hunters can pick up to three wildlife-management units (WMU) in order of their preference of where they would like to hunt. If the licenses for a hunter's first WMU choice are sold out, a license for their next-available preference will be given. For most management units, hunters can apply for only one license per sales round.
In WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D, there is no limit to the amount of antlerless licenses a hunter can purchase. In all other units, a hunter is limited to three. Starting Aug. 5 in WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D, hunters can apply for up to three additional licenses per envelope until the supply is exhausted.
Licenses in the three previously-listed WMUs will be available starting Aug. 26 while licenses for all other WMUs will be available starting Oct. 7.
