THE GAME COMMISSION conducts several special hunts at the Pymatuning Wildlife Management Area in Crawford County and the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lebanon and Lancaster counties.
These consist of waterfowl, archery deer, muzzleloader deer and adult mentored hunts at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, and goose, youth turkey, archery deer and muzzleloader deer hunts at Pymatuning Wildlife Management Area. Permittees to hunt these areas are selected only by drawings held prior to the hunting season. Individuals can apply for a hunt at no cost but must hold an active license or permit, or have in their “cart” at the time of application. Applications may be submitted online at HuntFishPA or at any Game Commission region office or the agency’s Harrisburg headquarters.
For more information on these hunts and how to apply, please visit the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.pa.gov.
Hunters are encouraged to frequently check the website for the most up to date information regarding the special hunt programs.
