Auction Hunting: No License Necessary

Required to carry a license while hunting? Not so if you’re auction hunting; especially for collectible hunting and fishing licenses which date back to the 1940s and earlier or paper licenses dating from the early 1900s.


More than 500 of these collectibles will be sold at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 23 at Gateway Gallery Auction, 643 Kriner Road, Chambersburg.

This collection, amassed over a life time by one gentleman, includes hundreds of Pennsylvania hunting and fishing licenses, vintage shotshell boxes, as well as Winchester Prints. “This auction is a one owner lifetime collection of Hunting & Fishing Licenses including some rare pieces you don't see in other collections. The auction will be a fine opportunity for the collector or dealer to add to their inventory. These items are fresh to the market!” Said Bob Abraham, Jr. consultant for Gateway Gallery.

In addition to the licenses, the auction will feature a large amount of various hunting and fishing related items and uncataloged traylots.  The auction will also be available on Auctionzip Live for internet bidding.
Doors open at 8 a.m.; preview is from 4 to 6 p.m. March 22 at the auction. For more information, visit
