Pa online license purchase


Recommended Posts

INTERNET UPDATE COULD BLOCK SOME FROM BUYING HUNTING LICENSES ONLINE

 

Some internet users might be unable to buy their 2018-19 Pennsylvania hunting licenses online due to an upcoming Internet security update.

The update affects all purchasing websites – not just the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System – and users of older-model computers are impacted most because many of these systems will be unable to make online purchases of any kind once the update is complete.

Newer computers largely won’t be affected, though users might need to install updated versions of operating systems and web browsers.

The easiest way to determine whether your computer will be capable of making Internet purchases once the update is complete is by going to https://tls1test.salesforce.com/s/ to test your system. If your machine passes the test, it should be good to go in making future online purchases, including buying a hunting license.

Licenses for the 2018-19 license year go on sale Monday, June 18.

The licenses become valid July 1 and, after that date, all who hunt, trap or who want to apply for an antlerless deer license must have an up-to-date 2018-19 license to do so.

Buying licenses as soon as they go on sale increases a hunter’s chances of securing a Deer Management Assistance Program permit for properties where few permits are available.

License buyers also should be aware of some important changes for the 2018-19 license year.

A pheasant permit will be required in 2018-19 for all junior hunters, as well as adult hunters and some senior hunters who pursue pheasants in Pennsylvania.

There is no fee for a junior pheasant permit, but the free permit will help the Game Commission track youth participation. A pheasant permit costs $26.90 for adults and seniors. However, hunters who acquired their senior lifetime hunting or combination licenses prior to May 13, 2017 no longer need a pheasant permit to hunt and harvest pheasants.

Additionally, the fisher trapping season in the 2018-19 license year will include WMUs 4B and 4C, in addition to those WMUs where the season had been open.

General hunting licenses and furtaker licenses each continue to cost $20.90 for Pennsylvania residents and $101.90 for nonresidents.

Resident senior hunters and furtakers, ages 65 and older, can purchase one-year licenses for $13.90, or lifetime licenses for $51.90. For $101.90, resident seniors can purchase lifetime combination licenses that afford them hunting and furtaking privileges. Like other hunters and trappers, seniors still need to purchase bear licenses to pursue bruins and obtain permits to harvest pheasants, bobcats, fishers or river otters.

A complete list of licensing requirements can be found at www.pgc.pa.gov.

Just going to jump the river like I always do to buy mine, then do some scouting, and maybe set up a camera.   Does PA charge extra for doing it yourself online like NJ does?

It is a $3.45 charge.

Buying licenses as soon as they go on sale increases a hunter’s chances of securing a Deer Management Assistance Program permit, $35.90 for properties where few permits are available.

 

When you pick up your fireworks in PA, a new tax will be applied to the purchase.

I don't even bother with the doe permit.  I can shoot all of those I want to in NJ, and don't like to shoot them to begin with.  Everybody that hunts the farm where I go also believes in not shooting doe.   We've kept a sustainable herd there with a few nice bucks hanging around every year.  

I'm not into fireworks.  There's a place that sells them in PA that's on the same backroad where I hunt, but I get all the bangs I need from the apartments near me.  They started shooting them off over a week ago.  I'll never understand the thinking behind the fireworks laws in PA.   All about money.  Why not just make them legal to shoot off.  They know they will be shot off, anyway, and some people will get hurt.
