ELK LOTTERY APPLICATION OPEN UNTIL TOMORROW

In April 2019, the Game Commission’s Board of Commissioners approved two new seasons; an early archery season and a late antlerless season. These seasons are in addition to the traditional general season, providing another 20 days, (13 for archery and seven for late), of elk hunting opportunities. Each season is mutually exclusive from the others with its own pool of applicants, specific drawing and bonus points. Interested hunters can apply for one, two or all three seasons, but you can only be drawn for one of the three, as state law dictates that hunters can only possess one elk tag per license year.  Monday, August 2, 2021, marks the beginning of the UNSOLD, 1st round of antlerless deer license applications for the 2021-22 hunting seasons.

REQUEST FOR SINGLE DAY OPENING OF TROUT SEASON

The head of the region’s Trout Unlimited chapter supports having a single opening day for trout season in the state — the first Saturday in April — as the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is considering. “I would support an earlier opening day because of the impact of climate change on stream conditions. When the streams are low and warm it stresses the trout,” said Larry Myers, president of the Forbes Trail Chapter of Trout Unlimited. For most of the state, opening day of trout season is the first Saturday after April 11, but it is the first Saturday after March 28 for the regional opening of the season in 18 southeastern Pennsylvania counties, the commission said in a statement Monday. According to SUN Gazette, that regional opening date took effect in 2007 and would require amending the fish and boat code to change it.
