(Harrisburg) -- State licenses are now on sale for the upcoming hunting and trapping seasons.

Hunter and furtaker licenses are effective July 1, and good for a year.

State Game Commission spokesman Travis Lau says the fees are the same as last year.

"The resident adult hunting license is $20.70. The same thing goes for the resident adult furtaker license," Lau explains. "A lot of hunters choose to add on archery stamps, muzzleloader stamps. Those are all available and for sale now."

Lau says licenses are available at more than 600 in- and out-of-state issuing agents.

A list is available at the Game Commission's website.

Licenses can also be purchased online.

    Countless family pets, cats and dogs, and other nontarget animals are killed in snares and leghold traps every year sponsored by the vain demand for fur in the country. Wild animals are being starved, suffocated, drowned and crushed for this barbaric industry with very little government oversight, regulation and monitoring. Get the facts on trapping from Born Free USA and learn about Pennsylvania’s D+ grade from the State Trapping Report Card; and get the facts about life on the trapline from our landmark 2011 investigation into the world of fur trapping.(
