(WTAJ) — This year, hunters will be able to purchase a hunting license Friday after Thanksgiving due to the increase in demand for license sales.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission Southcentral Region Office serves Bedford, Blair and Huntingdon Counties. Despite being traditionally closed, it will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accommodate anyone wishing to purchase a hunting license.
Starting Saturday, Nov. 27, the deer (regular firearms – antlered and antlerless) hunting season begins. It will continue on Sunday, Nov. 28, as well as Nov. 29 to Dec. 11. (Note: one antlered deer per hunting license year, and an antlerless deer with each required antlerless license.)
“There is an annual rush to purchase general hunting licenses just prior to the regular firearms deer season,” Regional Director Michael Beahm said. “We want to accommodate the increase in demand by offering additional office hours for license sales.”
The office, which is located along William Penn Highway in Huntingdon, is open Monday through Friday every week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
