Hunting licenses go on sale Monday and the PA State Game Commission is making some changes to help with budget concerns.
Licenses become valid July 1 and anyone who wants to hunt, trap or apply for an antlerless deer license will need an up to date 2017-18 license to do so.
One way the Game Commission is trying to limit costs is that license buyers will not be given a full regulations digest but they can purchase one for $6. License buyers will receive a complimentary pocket-guide or they can access the full digest online at pgc.pa.gov.
The Game Commission will attempt to increase revenue by requiring all adult and senior pheasant hunters to purchase a permit. Each pheasant permit costs $26.90 and the permit is required in addition to a general hunting license.
A complete list of licensing requirements can be found at pgc.pa.gov.
