Committee Approves Measure to Update Antlerless Hunting License Sales

The Senate Game & Fisheries Committee today (May 24) approved a measure to modernize the sales of antlerless deer licenses. according to Committee Chairman Senator Dan Laughlin (R-49).

Senate Bill 431, introduced by Senator Laughlin, provides for the sale of antlerless deer hunting licenses through the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System.

“This bill takes advantage of current technology to make the system more convenient for Pennsylvania’s hunters,” said Senator Laughlin. “Currently, hunters apply for antlerless deer licenses by sending an application to a county treasurer or similar applications in a timely manner. Because of recent updates to the Automated Licensing System, hunters can have access to a more convenient and efficient way of applying for and receiving hunting licenses.”

The bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration.
