Still haven't received my doe tag.. Website says it was awarded July 18th. Should I be worried? I've never had this happen, do I just call the county treasurer?

I stopped at the Greene county treasurer office yesterday for something else but asked about the doe tags since I haven't got any of mine yet. She said they just started sending them back and the next person that calls about it she's just telling they cancelled doe season this year. Some of them just wait until the last minute to send them out.

I had this happen last year. I called the Berks treasurer where I sent my apps.

They were very helpful and guided me through the process of a no-cost replacement of the tags I never received and invalidating the ones that went missing (they had sent them, but I never received them).

I would definitely call.

Somewhere, a disgruntled postman might have 50,000 pink envelopes stuffed in closets, under beds, or in the garage. Just like the one in the news a week or so back, but Pennsylvania style!!

<span style="font-style: italic"> (c) Except as otherwise provided in 搂 143.52 (relating to procedure for unlimited antlerless licenses) and for qualified landowners, licenses issued shall be delivered to successful applicants in the envelope by first class mail through and by the United States Postal Service.

The person receiving the additional licenses is responsible for delivering them to the appropriate people. </span>

If the tags are listed as issued in PALS, then the treasurer is where this needs to get resolved.

The treasurer can tell the OP if/when the tags were mailed. In my case, the Berks treasurer told me when they mail tags out and that mine were definitively mailed a long time before I called to inquire. She then told me exactly what to do to get no-cost replacements, and it was handled very, very promptly and I had my tags replaced and in my hand in a few days.

Or, the treasurer can tell the OP that tags won't be mailed until [insert date here].

We can speculate all we want, but the OP calling the treasurer was exactly the right move to find out really what has occurred and what the next steps should be.
