End Zone Seat: Antlerless Deer Licenses Going Fast

The Pennsylvania Game Commission announced Tuesday that the antlerless licenses allocations for six Wildlife Management Units (WMU) have already sold out.

The entire allotment for WMUs 1B, 2E, 2F, 2G, 3A and 3C are gone. These WMUs encompass a large section of northern Pennsylvania, including WMU 3C which includes all of Susquehanna County and parts of Bradford and Wyoming Counties north of Rt. 6.

As of Aug. 24, there was a limited number of licenses available in one local WMU.

In WMU 3B, which includes Bradford and Wyoming Counties south of Rt. 6 and all of Sullivan County, there were 9,339 licenses left of the original 48,000 allotment.

Last Monday was the first day the game commission began accepting applications by mail for the first round of unsold antlerless licenses.

The second round of unsold license sales will begin on Sept. 13.

Statewide on Tuesday, there were only 304,573 licenses left out of the original 1,039,000 allocation.

College football fans will have the opportunity to help out a great cause on Sept. 4.

When Mansfield University opens its home season that day against West Virginia Wesleyan, it will mark the fourth annual Josh Palmer Fund Pigskin Classic.

The Palmer Classic honors a former Mansfield player who beat Hodgkin's disease prior to his college career. He is currently the head basketball coach and junior varsity football coach at Elmira Southside High School.

Fans attending the game will be able to purchase a Josh Palmer Fund Pigskin Classic t-shirt for $10 that will provide admission into the game.

A raffle will also be held with prizes from a number of NFL and college teams, including a football signed by Arena Football League owners John Elway and Jon Bon Jovi.

The money raised will be used to assist cancer victims in the Twin Tiers.

There are few places in this area to watch a football game that is more scenic than Van Norman Field.

You can enjoy a nice country day in Tioga County, watch a little football and help out victims of this terrible disease.

Be there.
