Was thinking about getting me an out-of-state permit (we own in PA, but it aint our primary residence and PA makes no distinction).

May get a deer and a turkey or two, but mostly for the thrill and time in the woods.

Anyway, I am rather clueless so here are some questions:

- assuming I get a permit, can an unarmed buddy tag along, one that doesn't have a permit ? In other words, is it only the hunter that needs one ? Hope so ...

- seasons: what is coming up and when does it make sense to buy a permit ? Are permits transferrable - can one buy it from another person ?

- I intend to use a muzzle loader, a bit more thrill this way and more fairness to the game

- assuming one gets a deer 2 miles deep of a state game land, how do you get out ? Can, say, an ATV be used to bring it out ?

- about ATV use in game lands. I understand it is a nuisance to most of us and as a hunter I won't appreciate people scaring the game riding them racing ATVs, stinking up the forests etc . But in reality do you see the slower moving ATVs out there in the game lands during hunting seasons , getting hunters to the remote and otherwise impassable areas or is it an absolute taboo ? I have a registered ATV

i havent checked the wording in pa but here in new york the wording was changed from hunting to pursuit of game. the idea being anti-hunters would go into the woods and bang pots and pans during hunting season and scare game. so by changing the wording to pursuit they actually needed a hunting license to pursue and scare the game.

whether someone accompanying a hunter can be considered in pursuit of game if that is how it reads as well is something we cant answere.

i think if that person was un-armed and not scaring game it would be okay.

realize the out of state pa license is very expensive. the first year we had our house my wife and i did it and it was over 200 bucks for the 2 of us .we got out 1 day . you cant use anyones license..i dont know if pa is different but in new york we had to take many many hours in hunter safety courses before we could get our licenses. we showed our ny one in pa and they just issued an out of state pa to us,
