Pennsylvania’s Rifle Deer Season Begins

November 27, 2017
By

Monday (Nov. 27) marks the start of rifle deer season in Pennsylvania.

The state’s Game Commission estimates that some 550,000 hunters will take to Pennsylvania’s woods over the next two weeks.  Officials stress that, although that number is considerably lower than it once was, Pennsylvania saw a record turnout of archery deer hunters this year.

As always, the opening day of the rifle season draws the largest amount of hunters.  Many school districts actually extend their Thanksgiving holiday for one day to accommodate the start of the hunting season, and thousands of hunters take the day off from work.

In most areas, only antlered deer may be taken over the first five days of the hunt, and about one-quarter of the total deer harvest is taken on the first day of the season.

Last year, 149,460 bucks were harvested by hunters in Pennsylvania – the second-largest number since antler restrictions took effect in 2002.
