Quickest County for Anterless Permits

I'm looking for a good county to send my anterless application to. Any recommendations? Last year I wasn't too happy with Franklin. Guess they just get too many from all the hunters in this area.

All county treasurers get lots of applications. As long as you get your license what does it matter how long it takes to get it?




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Quickest County for Anterless Permits

Hunters should not be left guessing. Treasurers should send permits out right away. The PGC should change the dates permits are due back.

I know one county that sends them out right away, and that is where I will be sending to. Elk.

10der, One problem with checking on line...there is no way to know if your application is sitting in a pile at the treasurers office waiting to be processed.

Re: Quickest County for Anterless Permits

Your don't have to be left guessing. You can always check the status of an antlerless application at the pgc website by entering the outdoor shop. click the first circle down and follow the directions from there.

If you can log in here you can check the staus there.

P.S. The monkey really freaks DennyF out

Re: Quickest County for Anterless Permits

If I were looking to hunt in 2G or one of the other WMU's that sell out in the first 2-3 days, I would be looking for the county that processes and assigns an antlerless tag to the license application as soon as possible. Being able to check it online is a plus, but if the county employees in County A are swamped with applications on the first day, and County B only gets a handful, guess who's getting their first choice on tags?!!

If the WMU you want had enough tags last year to make it to the date that non-residents begin mailing in, then you are in good shape if your application arrives there sometime next week (assuming you are a resident). If your WMU sell out quickly on a regular basis, I'd be looking at sending to a lower population density county - playing the odds that they don't get as many applications to process.

Wishing I was at camp!

If you mailed the app, and have not been awarded one you can assume it's sitting somewhere. If you know that your app is sitting in a pile, what good does it do you?

Mail your app, check the Game Comm site on on the 16th (or any day you like) and see if you got lucky.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”

Re: Quickest County for Anterless Permits

Lancaster is pretty good usually. But last year they sat on bonus app. for 4 days and didn't process it until Thursday. Cost me my first choice but i'll give them a second chance this year.
