The Pennsylvania Game Commission announced hunting and furtaking licenses for the 2020-21 season will be available starting this Monday.
General hunting licenses and furtaker licenses cost $20.90 each 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. A complete list of licensing requirements can be found here.
Due to a recent change in state law, big-game hunting will be permitted on the following dates: Sunday, Nov. 15, for archery deer hunting; Sunday, Nov. 22, for bear hunting; and Sunday, Nov. 29, for deer hunting during regular firearms season.
