Do I have to have/need my muzzleloader license to use my muzzleloader during rifle season?

I know that I need it for muzzleloader season, just not sure about rifle season.

I hunted for years with a flintlock rifle before there was a PA muzzleloading season. You can also hunt with archery equipment during the traditional rifle season.
