I called the PGC twice, talked to two different people and got two different answers. A out of state friend of mine is coming in to hunt the flintlock season with me. This year he is bringing his 14 year old son. My friend has his license but wants to know what his son needs.

First time I called i was told he needed a junior non resident license ($41.70) and a non resident flintlock tag ($21.70). A friend at work told me there's a combination license available ($51.70) that includes the flintlock tag. I called the PGC again to ask about this and they told me the combination license doesn't allow you to shoot an antlerless deer with a flintlock.

The license info page on the PGC web site says "Combination licenses grant hunting, furtaker, archery and muzzleloader privileges."

What do I tell him to buy?
Thanks,
Bill

Get the Non-Resident Junior Combination.

Combination licenses include Muzzle-Loader privileges. And the Muzzle Loader license allows for one antlered deer (only 1 antlered per license year), or one antlerless-plus an additional antlerless deer with each required antlerless license.

Title 34, 2705, 11.1: Junior nonresident combination hunting and furtaker license, including archery and muzzleloader privileges, to nonresidents who have reached or will reach their 12th birthday in the license year of application for a license but who have not reached their 17th birthday prior to the date of the application for the license and who present a written request, containing the signature of a parent or guardian, for the issuance of a license. The actual privileges granted to the holder of a junior nonresident combination license shall not be exercised until that person in fact is 12 years of age.

When I went to buy my daughter her license( grant you it was a Resident)she could not buy a archery. She HAD to get the combination as the youth license + the archery license is more than the combination.

If there are different criteria for NR Junior Combo muzzle loader licenses than what is ordinarily the rule (buck, or a doe with an used muzzle loader tag), then it needs to be spelled out in the regs.

According to the official source:

If he is just now purchasing the combination license it would come with an antlered tag as well as the muzzleloader privileges, so as long as he had not used the antlered tag in any other season and was still in possession of it, it serves as an either sex tag for flintlock season.
