    If you are still a Pa Resident, just get a Resident hunting license. ($20.70) and you can hunt small game. The 7 day small game license is for Non-Residents and is $31.70.
    When you are called a racist, it just means you won an argument with an Obama supporter.

    It's for my dad whom is a non resident. I went to walmart to buy one and the lady yelled at me saying it's impossible.

    He's only here for a few days, and I wanted to get him a small game license so he could go out with me with one if my other rifles...

    what are you hunting this time of year? Hunting license holders need a certificate they completed a Hunter education safety course. or a license from heir home state. "SmallGame" is not in season, I think the only thing thats open is woodchuck and some varmints .

    Your father has to buy the license in person. He has to provide a photo ID to prove he is of legal age, where he is a resident, etc... At one time you had to show your hunter safety education card or a prior year license but this is no longer asked. Or, at least in my case and at all the shops I frequent, the question is no longer asked. I am betting that if I read the fine print when signing my license I am stating that I meet the legal qualifications.

    As bigandy says, "small game" is not a season. Small game is a game animal classification that includes quail, pheasant, rabbit, turkey, squirrel, groundhog, etc... Most of these have their own season and some overlap others.

    Here are some examples from http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal...=576240&mode=2

    SPRING GOBBLER (Bearded bird only): Special season for eligible junior hunters, with required license, and mentored youth – April 23, 2016. Only 1 spring gobbler may be taken during this hunt.

From April 30-May 14, legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise until noon; from May 16-31, legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise until one-half hour after sunset.


    Not to bust your balls but it sounds as if you are a bit unfamiliar with the licensing and seasons. Make sure you are hunting in the correct season, know your daily limit, and verify there are no special rules for the PGC Game Management Region where you hunt. A small error on your part can be very expensive and easily turn in to legal issues. In some cases PGC can confiscate your firearm, vehicle and any equipment used in an illegal harvest.

    I'm shooting ground hog which DOES NOT go out of season.... (however, they do hibernate in the winter, so TECHNICALLY their season ends when it gets cold....)

    And my father is retired Navy... I do not believe he would need the hunters safety course....

    Believe it or not.... there are a FEW people in PA that hunt OTHER animals than deer.....

    Everyone requires a hunter safety course. The only exceptions are:

    1. those who were grandfathered many many many years ago that had already had a hunting license prior to the safety course inception.
    2. those who have taken a hunter safety course in another state
    3. those who can prove they have had a hunting license prior.
    4. those who are currently in the armed forces
    5. those who are applying that served in the armed forces of the United States or in the United States Coast Guard and discharge or separation under honorable conditions within six months of the date of application.

    Even WCO's are required by the letter of the law.
