eLICENSES NOW AVAILABLE

Right in line with Pennsylvania’s new hunting, furtaker, fishing and boating licensing system being able to provide electronic versions of licenses, the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners has now started the process of allowing hunting and furtaking eLicenses to be carried afield as an alternative to paper licenses. The plan now under consideration, and which has already gotten preliminary approval, means harvest tags would continue to be issued in physical form, and no electronic versions of the harvest tags would be issued. But for all other licenses, electronic versions would be a permitted substitute for hunters and trappers to carry in the field. If the measure is adopted when it comes up for final approval at the April meeting, hunters and trappers buying licenses online would continue to be mailed all durable-stock license panels, including harvest tags, and would also be given access to eLicenses. There would be no additional fee to retrieve eLicense products from HuntFishPA, but regular fees still would apply for the replacement of harvest tags, or where the customer opts for a physical reprint of the license. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission made a similar move last March.
