WHERE CAN THEY BE PURCHASED? Pennsylvania Game Commission's Harrisburg Headquarters, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110-9797 or any of the (6) Regional Offices located throughout the state. You may apply on-line at www.pgc.state.pa.us. or at the Elk County's Treasurers office.
DOCUMENTATION NEEDED: Applicants must produce documentation to prove their age and residency via (1) valid Pennsylvania driver's license or (2) current local or state personal income tax receipts and some other form of positive identification proving their age. All mail orders must include copies of this documentation with the application and remittance. All applicants must send proof of Hunter Safety Training or Prior Hunting License. (Preferably a photo static copy.)
Social security numbers are used to electronically file license holder information in the computerized database of lifetime license holders. All information is kept completely confidential.
RENEWAL LICENSES: To obtain a yearly renewal license, lifetime license holders may apply on-line or at any authorized in-state issuing agent. License holders must show their valid Pennsylvania driver's license or some other form of positive identification documenting their current residency. The agent then issues a renewal license (new general hunting license back tag and renewal stamp) at no charge. Renewal licenses are the same for both regular hunting and combination license categories. Lifetime license holders who move out-of-state cannot lawfully renew their lifetime license.
