WHAT’S IN SEASON

There’s always something to hunt!

 
From woodchucks in summer, to small game in late winter, you’ll find lengthy hunting opportunities to fit your bill. Primetime begins in October when bowhunters take aim on deer. Small game, waterfowl and turkey kick in later in the month and continue into November. Bear and deer gun seasons begin in late November and mark the peak of the hunting season with deer continuing into December.

CURRENTLY IN SEASON*

  • Turkey (bearded birds only)
  • Coyote
  • Woodchuck

*Please consult Seasons & Bag Limits and Migratory Game Bird links below for more information

Hunter Education Find a Class Try Hunting
There’s a lot to learn about hunting, but we can make it easier.  Luckily, all first-time hunters, and trappers, too, must complete a basic hunter education class before buying a license and going afield. These Pennsylvania Game Commission-sponsored classes include lessons on:

  • Hunting responsibly
  • Firearm and hunting safety
  • Basic and advanced hunting techniques
  • Trapping basics

After the basics, let us show you even more! The Game Commission offers advanced hunter education classes including Successful Turkey Hunting, Successful Bowhunting and Successful Furtaking with more new courses coming soon. We’ll give you lots of tips and pointers which otherwise could take a lifetime to learn.
