Purchasing Information: 

Hunting licenses and DMAP permits went on sale Monday, June 14, 2021.  

Permits must be purchased from either a license-issuing agent or by visiting HuntFishPA (https://huntfish.pa.gov/). A coupon is not needed to purchase a permit for DMAP units on the ANF or KQDC. The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s DMAP Participating Properties website (https://www.pgcapps.pa.gov/Harvest/DMAP) is regularly updated to show how many permits are available for each DMAP unit.  

Hunters on DMAP properties may hunt antlerless deer in any deer season, using the sporting arm and/or implement allowed during that season. The hunter must be properly licensed for the season; for example, archery or muzzleloader licenses are required to take antlerless deer with DMAP permits during those seasons. Reporting on harvest success is mandatory for all DMAP permit holders, regardless of whether a deer is harvested, and can be completed by visiting HuntFishPA (https://huntfish.pa.gov/) or calling 1-800-838-4431.
