I honestly don't know. We have 60 acres all forested and get 4 tags for it. But you have to submit a 'management plan' per the application. In our case it's pretty cut-and-dried as it's farm country with tons of agriculture surrounding our property and we recently logged as well. My management plan is based on regeneration and rough deer sighting numbers....it's pretty simple. You may want to call Harrisburg and see if you're able to do it....I can't remember if it's spelled out in the application or not regarding under 50 acres.I just downloaded application. I have 40 acres I own and 30 acres adjoining me do you think that qualifies me? Is there an address to send to?
