Montco doe-hunting licenses are available

MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Doe-hunting licenses available

NORRISTOWN Doe-hunting licenses for the 2014-2015 season will be available to Pennsylvania residents starting Monday.

The application process and fee for each license, $6.70, have not changed, but Montgomery County treasurer Jason Salus said fewer licenses will be available this year.

"These licenses sell out quickly every year, and as a result of a decreased allocation across the commonwealth, this year is likely to be no different," Salus said.

Each license allows one hunter to bag one antlerless deer. But if there are still licenses available in August, residents may apply to obtain a second or third permit.

Applications must be mailed to the Treasurer's Office at 1 Montgomery Plaza, Sixth Floor, P.O. Box 311, Norristown, Pa. 19404.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission has allocated 779,500 permits statewide, with 113,000 of those designated to Southeast Pennsylvania. Last year, only 218,640 antlerless deer were harvested statewide.
