There are special regulations concerning seasons and antler restrictions for active duty members of the armed services. Does that include members of the national gaurd as well? Or only full time soldiers?

The following special licenses are available only at County Treasurers and PGC Offices:



Reduced-Fee Resident Military Personnel Hunting Licenses: ($2.70) Applicants must meet the following criteria:

Be a resident of Pennsylvania on active and full-time duty in the U.S. Armed Forces

Be currently assigned to a facility outside of Pennsylvania but on temporary leave here

Applicants should produce proof of their military status and leave papers or official orders showing that they’re stationed outside the Commonwealth. Applicants also need to document that Pennsylvania is their home of record.

If the applicant or his/her agent cannot appear in person, he or she may submit a written request, including full name, legal address, telephone number, social security number or CID, date of birth, height, eye color and supporting documentation. Applicant must include a self-addressed, stamped, return envelope with the request.

If a qualified applicant arrives home after County Treasurer and PGC offices have closed, and opts to purchase a regular resident hunting license from a commercial agent instead of the military hunting license, he or she may request a refund for the difference in cost. The hunter must submit a written request stating where/when the license was purchased, their CID and documentation verifying that they would have qualified for a reduced-fee hunting license. Refund requests should be sent to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, License Division, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110-9797.

Reduced-Fee Resident PA National Guard or Resident Reserves Hunting Licenses: ($2.70) Applicants must meet the following criteria:
Be a qualified resident who, within the previous 24 months, had been deployed overseas for a period of 180 consecutive days or more or was released early from such service because of injury or disease incurred in the line of duty. Only one reduced-fee license may be issued for each qualifying deployment.

Applicants should produce proof of their military status or discharge papers if applicable, individual or unit orders showing the return date from oversees and proof of residency/home of record.

If the applicant or his/her agent cannot appear in person, he or she may submit a written request, including full name, legal address, telephone number, social security number or CID, date of birth, height, eye color and supporting documentation. Applicant must include a self-addressed, stamped, return envelope with the request.

If a qualified applicant arrives home after County Treasurer and PGC offices have closed, and opts to purchase a regular resident hunting license from a commercial agent instead of the National Guard or Reserves hunting license, he or she may request a refund for the difference in cost. The hunter must submit a written request stating where/when the license was purchased, his/her CID and documentation verifying he/she would have qualified for a reduced-fee hunting license. Refund requests should be sent to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, License Division, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110-9797.
