Raystown Lake deer management coupons available

Published June 12, 2017

RAYSTOWN LAKE, Pennsylvania - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Raystown Lake announces the enrollment of project lands in the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP), with two DMAP units established for the 2017-2018 deer hunting season.   

DMAP Unit 2831 includes all Corps-owned land to the west of the lake, covering a total of 14,496 acres. DMAP Unit 2832 includes all Corps-owned land to the east of the lake, covering a total of 5,144 acres. Both DMAP units have each been allocated 310 coupons. The additional tags are intended to assist in matching deer populations to the carry capacity of the land on which they exist.

DMAP coupons for both units will be available from any license issuing agent or the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Outdoor Shop web page at www.theoutdoorshop.state.pa.us. The Corps will NOT be distributing coupons to walk-in or mail-in applicants. Each DMAP coupon allows for the harvesting of one antlerless deer during the 2017-2018 hunting season. Maps of DMAP Units 2831 and 2832 will be available at the Raystown Lake Ranger Office or can be printed directly from http://www.nab.usace.army.mil/Missions/Dams-Recreation/Raystown/.
