Say a person who lives with his parents in Pa. buys his hunting license, doe tag, etc. then moves out of state. Is the license still good? What if they have a new address in new state but keep using their parents Pa. address?
When you move out of state you become a nonresident on that day. It is illegal to use an in state address if you live out of state and becomes very expensive if you get caught, especially if you have killed something on the bad license. It is much cheaper to buy the non resident license, and it is being honest.
I realize that John. I wasn't disagreeing. I was making the point that you are a non-resident of both PA and new state for the first 30 days after your move. So... if you wanted to hunt either state in that time period you would need a non-resident lic. for either state. Make sense?
Unless a college student legally takes residency in another state they are still residents temporarily living out of the state. However, if they legally change residency by changing vehicle registration and drivers license, paying taxes in that state for whatever perks it may get them in that state, they are no longer residents of PA until they move back and change residency again. In PA for example there is less tuition in state schools if a student is a resident of PA. I had many cases where non resident students claimed to be residents of PA while going to Millersville University while having out of state drivers licenses and vehicle registration. A quick trip to the bursar's office told me if they were paying resident or non resident tuition.
No, as long as you are still a resident of PA. NY is allowing you to purchase a resident license because you're in school there. They don't consider you a resident of NY, you're still a PA resident. It's the same as when I was stationed at Griffiss AFB when I was in the Air Force. Had resident licenses in both NY and PA.
