Default Pennsylvania Landowner Hunting

I was in a discussion with a fellow from PA and he told me as a farmer with 500 acres he can hunt deer without a hunting license. I looked at the PGC website and could find no exception for landowners or farmersto deer hunt without a license. Can anybody tell me what the scoop is on this. Here in NY everybody needs a license and take the hunter safety course, no exceptions for farmers.

Farmers don't need tags for deer. All they have ot prove is deprivation of crops and they can shoot all day, includes bear.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm a bit puzzled though. Why would the pgc issue landowner hunting licences if there is no need for the landowner to have a license? Oh well.

Because there's a difference between owning land and making a living from your land.You can't just hunt and shoot as much game as you feel because you own the property.

Qualified landowners, those with their land under continuous commercial cultivation, can hunt their own land without a hunting license during the legal seasons but they can not hunt on any other lands.

The availability of landowner hunting license allows the qualified landowners to get a license so they can also hunt off of their own lands. It is just a way of expressing some gratitude toward the landowners where game reside and feed.

Doesn't this include full time employees and also land that these farmers have on lease?
