5C doe license plan
I'm hoping to make it to the 5C doe hunt this year. I've already sent in my regular application for my home WMU and I was planning on sending my 1st round unsold for that one also.
That gets my first application for 5C in the 2nd round of unsold licenses on 8/19. Do I still have a good chance of getting one then?
Only 67,000 left! ;-)
You have a PM Art.
Im looking firward to this hunt!
Good to hear it Chuck! We need to kill more deer this year.......................... ;-)
You can send for 5C, in the first round of unsold - along with you other one for your home WMU. (yes, they let you do this as it's special reg's area. Just include a second app and a second check for that one). Don't wait for the 2nd round of unsold.... it could be too late.
Yes, don't wait. Send in for Aug 5th!
I just called the Treasurer's office and they said if there are plenty of tags left for the WMU's you are applying for, there is no need for 2 checks. (I guess the only problem would be if one of the WMU's had few tags left and you do not get one, and did not put a second choice on your application) Then they would not be able to cash your check since it would be for more than what you owe them.
Putting my pink envelope in the mailbox Saturday morning as I head for vacation!
Sounds good- have a good vacation!
This has to be the slowest 5C and 5D draw I have ever seen, Second day of second round and there are 55K left for 5C? Say it aint so..
Had my 5C awarded yesterday at 10:37. Also had my 2C awarded at the same time.
Had my 5B awarded today, along with one of the two 5C applications. That seems a little odd, considering the 5C's were in the same envelope....
Uh oh..............................I hope the treasurer didn't drop it under the desk! ;-)
John, I think there are still a lot of folks that don't know you can apply for 5C tags when you apply for "regular" WMU tags. ANd thus they wait for 2nd round unsold.
Woo Hoo, I've been issued 42 5C & 5D tags! 58 more tags to go.
Bucks county this year is really slacking.. Thursday and no tags?
Not even AWARDED yet John?
I mailed mine on Monday it was awarded in the Lackawanna Co Tres when I checked yesterday. That was for 3c. They have always been quick for me.. Ed
I put mine in the mail Sat. and was awarded my tags before 10am on Monday. I would tell you where, but that is a closely guarded secret.........................................after years of experimentation with different Co. Treasurers! ;-)
I'm hoping this is the last year we have to jump thru hoops.................................
Mailed mine out today. There are over 46k left. I should be GTG.
Suprisingly there are still 4B doe tsgs left.
I am shocked that this far in there are as many tags as there are...
It looks like they only processed one of my 5C tags. I guess I'll have to get another pink envelope....
Yeah, not sure why still so many tags? Is it less applications, or slower processing???
I bet the DMA area are places folks don't care to hunt. In the past 4A would sell out quickly. 5B was given a lot of licenses and there are a lot unsold so far.
Disease Management Areas. Yes, CWD.
Yeah, and the reported die-offs in 5C as well. That could explain it..............
Well, it's only gotten stranger.
I sent two applications in for 5C. I got a pink envelope back with one of my applications and a check for 5C back with a note that my "personal limit reached for this round" and no tag for the check they did cash.
What County Treasurer did you send to? I would call them first thing Monday and ask for an explanation! They should know the rules....................
I sent in 2 envelopes to the same county treasurer. One had a 2D application and two 5C apps. The other had three 5C apps. They were all awarded within 10 min of each other. No problems.
They went to Lancaster County. Maybe I should send them somewhere else...
The thing that surprised me the most, was that they didn't send the 5C tag that was awarded.
For some reason certain Co. Treasurers hold onto them and don't sent them out right away. I just got my tag from the first round on Friday.
2 5C tags awarded. I hope I can shoot my bow in time for this hunt.
2 months ago I slipped on some wet steps and landed full force on my left arm. I didnt break anything but it put a major hurting on the tricep and tendons. I tried drawing my bowfishing rig ( has a much lighter draw) but can only get it back 2/3 draw.
I did the same thing 9 days ago Chuck. Hoping to be able to pull the bow soon too. Good luck with it. Might have to crank the draw weight down a bit.
Took me an hour and a half to fill out my apps. It’s now one week later and no tags have been issued for me
Bill, that’s because they cap the applications at 99. :)
Sent individual envelopes to different counties to see which ones do the best job at processing. I can tell you that it ain't Montgomery. The other county treasures had awarded my tags from Tuesday to Thursday of last week. Not one of the three sent to Montgomery has been processed.
I sent in for a pig's worth and all were awarded by last Friday. Over half are in hand.
Montgomery has awarded me two today on their "Slow boat to China."
phil, Bucks county
Think they put mine on the bottom of the pile :)))
You guys can also add Bucks County to the "no send" list. They -WERE- good, now just as terribly slow as the rest. They make the number one in do not send list, under Montgomery County.
I must have someone in Montgomery County who really likes me, I guess. I sent both 1st and 2nd round there, and both tags were issued within 2 days. They are both currently sitting in my license holder, ready to be affixed to the first 2 doe that walk by my stand.
As a matter of fact, I have application #3 ready to go....guess where I'm sending it? :)
I sent to Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware. Chester won the race.
Doesn't mean I did not stuff three more with 3 apps a piece though after...
Are you guys sending one check for 3 apps?
Yes Reid. One check for every 3 apps. I’ve always done it that way
Put our 2 bonus tags in saturdays mail, got awarded both on Tuesday. Easy peasey~(8o)
LOL! The annual “what county do I send to THIS year” experiment! Just glad I don’t hunt in 2G or 2 H or whatever counties go quick!
Hey Josh, You must have an ex-girlfriend that works in the Montgomery Co. Treasurers office that is still sweet on you! ;-)
Good news, I got the "missing" 5C tag in the mail today. I also was awarded the 5C tags I submitted last week.
Now I just need to find deer to pin them on....
That’s great Art! We will do our best to help you fill them! ;-)
Mine are all in my possession. Seemed to take a little longer this year, but I got all of them.
Mine all arrived last week.
Less than 5,000 in 5C as of 1pm
This time last year they had SOLD OUT
Down to 3700 this morning.
OH MY GOD..
THE SKY IS FALLING..
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES..
The Anti's at the courthouse in Norristown have not got to them yet. S/B by the end of today...
LOL RC! Sky's not falling.............................just giving an update to those that haven't picked theirs up yet. ;-)
1700 left as of 3pm......................................................
Yeah, that's crazy! The last couple years 5C was sold out on Monday............................
5C Sold out, and the lack of sales is because the baby boomers are hunting less and less.
