Holders of a 2019-20 hunting license valid July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 will be able to apply for a first round unsold resident antlerless license starting Monday, August 5, 2019. The cost of the antlerless license is $6.90 for residents.
Check or money orders should be made payable to the York County Treasurer’s Office and mailed to 28 E Market Street, Room 126, York, PA 17401. Cash should not be sent with applications. The Treasurer’s Office is not responsible for applications that are not received through the USPS. The York County Treasurer’s office will accept Antlerless license applications on a first come first serve basis through the United States Postal System only.
York County Treasurer Barbara Bair stated that “Wildlife Management Unit 5B, which covers most of York County and surrounding counties, still has more than 45,000 antlerless licenses available.” Bair added that “her office has processed nearly 12,000 applications so far, half of which were mailed Friday, July 19th, and they are awaiting the first round of unsold licenses to be received.”
Hunters are encouraged to mail applications in the pink envelope provided by the Pennsylvania Game Commission on August 2 in order to ensure timely delivery to the Treasurer’s Office. Applications should not be sent to the Game Commission. Please be sure to place first class postage on Sections I & II of the pink envelope.
If submitting up to 3 applications per envelope, applicants are encouraged to submit separate checks or money orders for each application. If one check is remitted for multiple applications all of the applications may be rejected if there is a problem with any one application or if any Wildlife Management Unit is sold out.
If the license allocations for all WMU preferences are sold out, the application will be returned to the hunter. The hunter may apply for another WMU where licenses are available by using a new pink envelope.
