Whitetail deer hunting is months away but many hunters will be getting ready for Doe Season by purchasing a hunting license now.
Monday, July 14 is the deadline for PA residents to get antlerless applications to Pennsylvania state treasurers. These licenses are awarded on a first-come-first served basis and allotments vary by WMU.
Erie County, most of Crawford County and 50% of Warren County are covered by WMU 1B. Last year 10,800 doe were harvested, a decrease of 3% from the prior year. This year, WMU 1B will be allocated 30,000 antlerless licenses.
WMU 2F covers the remaining 50% of Warren County and includes Forest county and portions of Elk, Venango, Clarion and Jefferson Counties. Last year 2F harvested 8,000 doe. This year WMU 2F will be allocated 27,000 antlerless licenses.
Statewide 218,640 antlerless and 134,280 antlered deer were harvested in 2013-2014.
