PA HUNTING LICENSES

FURTAKERS LICENSE

 
   
 

In 1985, the first furtakers license was issued for resident trappers. Prior to that, the privilege of trapping was included in the resident hunting license. The PA Game Commission also issued junior furtaker, senior furtaker, senior lifetime furtaker, non-resident junior furtaker, and non-resident furtaker. These licenses are extremely common and have almost no value. In fact, these licenses were so overprinted that the Game Commission sold them to collectors at the conclusion of the season. Certain licenses can still be purchased from the PA Game Commission by contacting the publication department.

However, the first trapping licenses were required in 1950 by non-residents. They were granted the same privileges as residents except they were not permitted to trap beaver. Non-resident trapping licenses from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s are RARE and valuable. This collector will pay upwards of $1,000 each for these licenses.
