A bill that would make it easier for hunters to purchase antlerless deer licenses has made it through the state senate.
The bill would allow licenses to be purchased a variety of ways, instead of just by mail to the county’s treasurer office.
“This bill would authorize the sale on antlerless deer licenses through the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System,” Republican State Senator Dan McLaughlin of Erie explains. “This Senate bill will modernize and simplify the sale of these licenses. Antlerless licenses will be available through the county’s treasurer’s office, online, and also point of sale.”
The bill did not receive unanimous approval though with some senators arguing that the bill doesn’t help hunters who don’t have access to internet.
