PA HUNTING LICENSES

FEMALE DEER

 
 
This is the holy grail of Pennsylvania hunting licenses. It is the only known Female deer license. This canvas-like material is different than any other PA canvas license and the only canvas antlerless doe license known.
The first female deer season was established in 1923 to harvest troublesome female deer. While 100 licenses were issued, none have ever been found.
This 1924 license is one of 456 issued, but is the only one found so far.
This license was only good for a several mile area in Brown, Union, and Menno Townships in Mifflin County. The back of the tag requests that a large female deer be killed and that a fine exists for killing a fawn. It also asks that the hunter kill a deer in close proximity to where damage is occurring near crops and fruit trees. While this license is too rare of a historical item to price, I have refused offers of $20,000 testifying to its true rareness.
