WHAT HUNTERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT 2021-22 ANTLERLESS DEER LICENSES

Deer season still might be months away, but hunters who will need antlerless deer licenses in 2021-22 soon will need to fill out and send in their applications.

Resident hunters may apply for their first antlerless deer license beginning Monday, July 12.

Nonresidents may submit their first application a week later, beginning Monday, July 19.

Hunters submitting applications should take note that the amount they pay for an antlerless license has increased slightly this year. While license fees haven’t increased since 1999, the vendor that operates Pennsylvania licensing system collects a fee for each license issued. That fee has increased this year – from 90 to 97 cents.

Pennsylvania antlerless deer licenses now cost $6.97 for residents and $26.97 for nonresidents.

While the total amount now is only pennies higher than before, the change is an important one for hunters submitting antlerless-license applications. Checks or money orders written for an improper amount result in an application being rejected. So be sure to confirm you’re using a 2021-22 application and envelope that reflect the present fees of $6.97 and $26.97.

Up to three applications can be submitted using the same envelope. Those submitting two resident applications now must include a check for $13.94. Three resident applications total $20.91.

Applicants must make checks and money orders payable to “County Treasurer.”

A list of participating county treasurers and their addresses can be found within the 2021-22 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest, which is provided to all license buyers and available to view online.

Applications that are in any way incomplete, including being sent without proper remittance, will be rejected and returned to the applicant. Applications received before the Monday start of any round also will be returned to sender.

In any WMU where antlerless licenses remain, resident and nonresident applicants may apply for a second license beginning Aug. 2, and a third license Aug. 16.

Applications during these rounds are accepted by mail only, and must be mailed with proper remittance in an official pink envelope, which ordinarily is provided by the license-issuing agent at the time a general hunting license is purchased.

A hunter first must purchase a general license to be eligible to apply for an antlerless deer license. Hunters who purchased their general license online, but haven’t yet received it, can obtain an antlerless-deer license application through the white-tailed deer page at www.pgc.pa.gov and go to any license-issuing agent to pick up an official pink envelope.

The total number of antlerless licenses has been reduced from 932,000 to 925,000 for 2021-22, meaning licenses could sell out at a faster pace this year. But where licenses remain, hunters in many cases can apply for more of them than they did in years past.

Hunters now can hold up to six unfilled antlerless licenses at a time, and can apply for additional licenses as they harvest deer and report them.

Over-the-counter sales of antlerless deer licenses for any Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) where they remain begin Sept. 13. During this period, licenses for any WMU can be purchased from any county treasurer, either in person or through the mail.

Since hunters statewide may hold up to six antlerless deer licenses at a time, and hunters may obtain no more than three antlerless deer licenses during the initial mail-in rounds, each hunter will qualify for at least three additional licenses at the time over-the-counter sales begin, although licenses in many WMUs will be sold out by then. Applications made by mail during the over-the-counter sales period can be submitted through the same process as in earlier mail-in rounds, though hunters may submit more than one application at a time until the six-license limit is reached.

When applying by mail, a hunter may submit up to three applications per envelope. If a hunter qualifies to purchase more than three licenses during the over-the-counter sales period, and chooses to make application by mail, separate envelopes will need to be mailed. Group applications (no more than three applications total per envelope) also may be made by mail during the over-the-counter sales period.

Once again this year, participants in Pennsylvania’s mentored hunting program who are at least 7 years old can apply for their own antlerless deer licenses and Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) permits, which can be used to harvest antlerless deer on specific properties. In years past, mentored hunters could harvest antlerless deer, but only if their hunting mentor held a valid antlerless license or DMAP permit and transferred the permit to the mentored hunter following harvest. Mentored hunters under 7 cannot apply for their own antlerless tags and must continue to receive them by transfer.

As is the case with hunting licenses, mentored hunters over 7 must have valid mentored hunting permits before applying for antlerless licenses or DMAP permits. Qualifying mentored hunters may purchase no more than one antlerless deer license.

“Pennsylvania has a long history of providing outstanding deer hunting, and recent seasons have been no exception,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “It won’t be long until we’re all back out there, hunting deer and carrying on that legacy in 2021-22, and now is the time to get your licenses and make plans to submit your antlerless deer license applications.”

The Sinnemahoning Sportsmen’s Association began conducting competitive rattlesnake hunting events on its club grounds in the Cameron County town of Driftwood back in the 1960s.

Most of those hunts have been under the direction of the Keystone Reptile Club, whose long-time president, William Wheeler Jr., has been in charge of the hunts each June since 1993.

Wheeler also directs similar rattlesnake hunts that are put on by the Kettle Creek Hose (fire) Company in Cross Fork in Potter County in late June, and by the Monroeton Rod and Gun Club in Bradford County in mid-July. Read more.......

Berwyn R. Wilcox, 87, of Mansfield, PA.

Berwyn R. Wilcox


Berwyn R. Wilcox, 87, of Mansfield, passed away Wednesday July 7, 2021 in his home, surrounded by family.  

He was born August 18, 1933, in Stony Fork, the son of Ivan J. and Eva “Pearl” (Callahan) Wilcox.  He was drafted into the US Army, and immediately following his graduation from high school, he served as a medic during the Korean Conflict.  Berwyn married Katharine M. “Kate” Mahosky, and together they raised 4 children.  He was a member of the Bakersburg Community Church.  Following his service in the Army, Berwyn worked as a machinist for Dresser, and was accomplished at many aspects of construction.  He built his own home, restored homes for family members, and he used his electrical and plumbing skills extensively while serving with the mission group:  RVICs.  

He was the baseball coach for the Tioga County Christian Academy in Charleston and helped with Little League baseball, he was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hiking, hunting and fishing.  He served on the board of Child Evangelism Fellowship in Tioga County.  Berwyn was a remarkable man who had a great love for God, his family and friends, and this country.  Even in his last moments he was concerned for others and his life was best lived travelling through 49 states with his beloved wife in their camper, cheering on his numerous grandchildren at sporting events, and sharing with any listening ear his vast knowledge of this area.  He is now absent from his earthly body joining his family and friends who have gone before him.  He was comforted knowing he would have a glorious reunion in Heaven with those family and friends left behind.  
Korean War Veteran


Berwyn is survived by his wife:  Kate Wilcox, of Mansfield; two sons:  Peter J. E. Wilcox (Ranea) of Wellsboro, and Kerwyn Wilcox (Julie) of Stony Fork; two daughters:  Pamela Moyer-Dunkleberger of Covington, and Barbara Stager (Richard) of Mansfield; 11 grandchildren:  Amanda K.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother:  Ernest Wilcox.

Friends and family are invited to pay tribute to Berwyn’s life Saturday July 17, 2021 from 10am-12:00 pm at the Bakerburg Community Church, 197 Gray Valley Rd, Mainesburg, PA 16932, with a funeral to follow in the church.
