POTTSVILLE — Schuylkill County Treasurer Linda L. Marchalk has established the schedule for selling hunting licenses from her office.
Those sales started on June 22 and will continue, she said.
“I encourage hunters to mail their applications in the pink envelope provided by the Pennsylvania Game Commission to ensure timely delivery to the treasurer’s office,” Marchalk said. The office will not be responsible for applications not submitted by mail, she said.
Doe tag sales for state residents will start today, while it will start on July 20 for nonresidents, she said. Hunters who want to apply for an antlerless deer license, which costs $6.90 for residents and $26.90 for nonresidents with a check or money order payable to the county treasurer, must have a hunting license for the 2020-21 season, Marchalk said. Do not send cash, she said.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis through the U.S. Postal Service only, Marchalk said.
The commission will issue only one license per hunter in the first round of sales, she said. Hunters may apply in subsequent rounds for a second or third license until the supply is exhausted, according to Marchalk.
Marchalk reminded people that a self-addressed stamped envelope must be enclosed in the pink envelope.
If people apply in a group, they should submit a separate check with each application, she said. Otherwise, if there is a problem with any one application, all of them submitted with it might be rejected, according to Marchalk.
She said hunters should check the commission’s website to confirm that their applications have been processed.
