Major Hunting License Changes for the 2023 - 2024 Hunting Year
Beginning on June 26 all hunters may apply for their hunting license privileges and antlerless hunting licenses online through the PGC website huntfish.pa./gov The PGC has eliminated the need to mail antlerless licenses to county treasurers. They are available online or at any PGC agent who sells hunting licenses. A list of PGC agents is available on the PGC website huntfis.pa/gov. There are NO antlerless applications printed when you purchase your general hunting license. There are NO antlerless paper license applications found in the Hunter's Digest as in the past. Your information is entered online or by using your CID, Social Security number, driver's license and DOB.
If you are a Landowner, Active Military or a Disabled Veteran, you must still purchase your hunting licenses at the county treasurer's office. This requirement was not changed in the law when the legislators removed the county treasurers' office from being the sole issuers of antlerless licenses.
Small Games of Chance Licenses, Special Raffle Permits and Bingo Licenses can be processed through the mail or by appointment only on Mondays and Thursdays. Please call 724-284-5151 or 724-284-5153 to schedule an appointment.
There will be a $35 fee assessed for all returned checks.
Convenience fee for credit & debit cards apply upon purchase or payment.
When placing online orders for dog, hunting or fishing licenses please use caution. There are a number of open complaints with the PA Attorney General’s Office involving third party scammers who present themselves as legitimate providers of licenses and charge exorbitant fees. Please only order dog licenses through the County Treasurer’s website or the PA Outdoor Shop for hunting and fishing licenses. If you have a concern about a third-party website, contact the PA Attorney General Bureau of Consumer Protection at 1-800-441-2555.
