    I agree--the book is a total headache. Question I have sent for my doe permit in 2B--- I want to send in for one for 2D. When can I do this and does it have to be done by mail or can I go to the courthouse in Greensburg?

    You must mail it in. You should have a yellow envelope to do that. It can be received by the Game Commission on 8/25. You can also apply for a second unsold anterless license on 9/8. Only in 2B, 5C and 5D can you purchase one at the treasurer's office and then only after 9/8. Here is the link to the PGC's anterless update page. There are links there that will help you out.

    Go to Walmart, Dicks, or Gander Mountain and buy an adult hunting license for $20.70. That will give you hunting privileges (and State Game Land shooting range privileges). You can hunt 1 antlered deer, a spring gobbler, a fall turkey and small game. It's valid from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013. You can buy a second sping gobbler tag.

    While you buy that, you can pay another $10.70 for a elk lottery tag, or preference point only. The PGC pulls around 50-60 bull & cow elk tags from about 19,000 hunters that enter the lottery.
