Deer Season Will Have Some Changes This Year

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, can Pennsylvania’s deer season be far behind? The state’s biggest draw for hunters is set to begin the Monday after when the two-week firearms deer season opens. One of the biggest changes in deer season this year is the new five-day, antlered deer-only season in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 2D, 2G, 3C and 4B. It starts the Monday after Thanksgiving and concludes Dec. 5. It is followed immediately in these four WMUs by seven days of concurrent, antlered and antlerless deer hunting beginning Dec. 6 and continuing through Dec.13. The rest of the state follows the two-week concurrent, antlered and antlerless season – Dec. 1-13 – that has been in place since 2001. WMU 2G is the area south of Route 6 in Potter and McKean Counties. The Game Commission says changes to these four WMUs will pave the way for it to investigate the relationship between antlerless allocations and season length. These WMUs were chosen because: WMUs 2G and 4B have ongoing deer research in them; WMU 2D is an area where antler restrictions are set at four points on one side, and is where the agency previously had deer research conducted; and WMU 3C is an area where antler restrictions are set at three points on one side, and is a physiographic area of the state where no extensive deer research has been conducted so far. The Commission will use a four-year study to determine the impact and effectiveness of the proposed five-day antlered/seven-day concurrent season before additional WMUs may be considered for this season configuration. It also will assess hunter satisfaction with the modified season structure in the four WMUs.Hunters are reminded must wear 250 square inches of fluorescent orange material on the head, chest and back combined at all times while afield during the seasons. They also are advised that it's illegal to hunt, chase or disturb deer with a firearm within 150 yards of any occupied building without the occupant's permission.All hunters who take a deer must fill out their harvest tag and attach it to the deer's ear before moving the carcass. A harvest report card – which is provided with every license sold - must be mailed to the Game Commission within 10 days after taking the deer. Hunters who lose or misplace a deer harvest report card are urged to use or copy the big game harvest report card found on page 33 of the 2008-09 Pennsylvania Hunting and Trapping Digest, which also is provided to all license-buyers.
