PA HUNTING LICENSES

BONUS

 
 
 

In 1987, the PA Game Commission decided to test the harvesting of multiple doe in special regulation areas. Montgomery, Chester, Delaware, and Bucks counties were chosen based on the number of deer in these populated areas. The program proved to be a success with hunters, farmers, and landowners. The following year the program was opened up to the entire state. All counties that had not sold their allocation of antlerless licenses were permitted to issue an additional license to hunters. These licenses are identifiable by the orange tape at the bottom marked BONUS. They were marked this way up to 1992. In 1993, the strip was eliminated. In general, there were no markings on the 1993 and newer bonus licenses. However, I have several licenses from 1993 and 1994 that are stamped bonus. These licenses were now referred to as surplus licenses. In 2000, many were marked Private Land Only. Today these licenses are referred to as Unsold Antlerless.

  • Bonus Licenses from 1987     $25
  • 1988 and newer                     $3-5
