Re: handgun hunting

You don't need a CCW. As long as the handgun is legal for the game you are hunting, It is not a problem. Semi-Auto's are illegal though.

Re: handgun hunting

You need a sportsmans permit. It's the same process of CCW. Might as well just get one of those.

Re: handgun hunting

Lacking a PA license to carry, you need a Sportsman's Permit to transport the handgun and to carry it concealed while hunting.

Re: handgun hunting

Now that this has started,I have a question.Years ago when I started handgun hunting,I went to the courthouse to get a sportsman's permit and the Sherrif told me that you can't technicaly conceal a handgun with a sportsmans permit.If just say it was raining and you had it under your coat,A WCO could bust you for it.So I got the CCW,does anyone know this true or not for fact.There does'nt seem to be much literature about it.

Alrighty then!

Re: handgun hunting

Yes, the Conceal Carry License can act as a hunting with a handgun license & a Conceal Carry License for personal protection. The Sportsman Permit is for hunting with a handgun ONLY. You can NOT carry a concealed pistol with a sportsman permit.

Sportsman Permit- Hunting with a handgun

CCL- Hunting with a handgun & carrying a concealed weapon for personal protection.

Some people just get the CCL because it covers both ends. Some people can't do that cause they aren't 21 (need to be 21 to have a CCL). So they get the Sportsman Permit (18-20 years of age) so they can still hunt with a handgun.
