Pennsylvania’s 2021 statewide regular firearms deer season begins this Saturday, Nov. 27 and runs through Saturday, Dec. 11.
The statewide, 14-day concurrent antlered and antlerless firearms season is intended to simplify regulations and provide increased opportunity, especially for younger hunters.
Don’t forget, hunters who harvest a deer, (and/or bear, elk or turkey), must properly fill out and tag their harvest before the carcass is moved. Additionally, this year, hunters will have to notch the date of the harvest on the new, green tags. Details about how to properly tag big game can be found on page 22 of the 2021-22 Hunting and Trapping Digest or online at www.pgc.pa.gov.
Don’t forget, those who hunt on private land are required to carry written permission from the landowner when hunting on Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021. Click here for more details about Sunday Hunting in Pennsylvania.
