HARRISBURG (AP) — Pennsylvania’s biggest draw for hunters is set to begin with the start of the 12-day firearms deer season.

About 750,000 hunters statewide are expected to take to the field today.

Hunters are expected to kill between 80,000 and 90,000 deer on opening day. That’s almost one-third of the 300,000 deer that game officials estimate will be harvested over the course of the season.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is encouraging hunters to file their harvest reports through the agency’s new online system at www.pgc.state.pa.us.

Hunters still have the option to file a harvest report via postcard.
