The Berks County treasurer’s office is accepting Pennsylvania doe applications by mail only.
County officials announced Thursday in a press release that there will be no over-the-counter purchases of doe licenses for this season. They added that the use of a drop box is prohibited and that applications cannot be submitted through the Berks County mailroom.
Hunters submitting applications should take note that the amount they pay for an antlerless license has increased slightly this year.
Pennsylvania doe licenses now cost $6.97 for residents. While license fees haven’t increased since 1999, the vendor that operates the licensing system collects a fee for each license issued. That fee has increased this year – from 90 cents to 97 cents.
Applicants need to make the check payable to “County Treasurer” and include it along with their application.
All mailed doe license applications must be sent in the official pink envelope along with postage applied to the return envelope, to the Treasurer’s Office, 633 Court St., Second floor, Reading, PA 19601. Envelopes are available in the the lobby of the Berks County Services Center or at other licensing agents.
When applying by mail, a hunter may submit up to three applications per envelope.
Applications will be processed using the HuntFishPA licensing system guidelines. Hunters who successfully harvest and report doe harvests through the system can reapply for additional doe licenses to reach the six doe license limits. HuntFishPA automatically tracks allocations and monitors personal license limits so hunters cannot be issued more licenses than regulations allow.
