The Chester County Treasurer’s Office announces that Antlerless Deer License sales will begin on Monday, July 10 for Pennsylvania residents. Hunters who wish to apply for an antlerless deer license must hold a current hunting license for the 2017-18 season. The cost for the antlerless license is $6.90 for PA residents and $26.90 for non-residents. Only one license per hunter may be issued in the first round; hunters may apply for a second and third license in subsequent rounds until the supply is exhausted. Please send a check or money order made payable to the County Treasurer. Do not send cash.
Hunters are encouraged to mail their application in the pink envelope provided by the PA Game Commission on Friday, July 7, to ensure timely delivery to the Treasurer’s Office. (Applications received prior to July 10 will be rejected so please abide by the July 7 mailing date.) Please do not send applications to the Game Commission. Remember to place a stamp on both the outer and inner envelopes.
If you are applying with others as a group, the Chester County Treasurer recommends submitting separate checks with each application. If two or three applicants apply together with one check, all of the applications may be rejected and returned if there is a problem with any one application or if any WMU is sold out.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis through the US Postal system only. The Treasurer is not responsible for applications that are not received through the USPS. Hunters are encouraged to check the Pennsylvania State Game Commission website frequently to confirm that his/her application has been processed.
If the license allocations for all WMU preferences are sold out, the application will be returned to the hunter. The hunter may apply for another WMU where licenses are available by using a new pink envelope.
This year, the PA Game Commission will not print a Hunting & Trapping Digest for mass distribution. Digests may be ordered at the cost of $6.00 through the Chester County Treasurer’s Office and then will be mailed out by the Game Commission to the license holder.
