Fort Indiantown Gap Welcomes Outdoor Enthusiasts

Those wishing to use Fort Indiantown Gap for hunting, trapping and fishing must attend a mandatory safety briefing and pay an annual $30 access fee.

The briefing covers the changes for the upcoming season which runs from September 2015 to May 2016, and orients those to the installation. A lottery is used to select those who may hunt north of Blue Mountain during regular rifle season. The lottery costs $10 and ensures a safe hunting environment and assists with managing the harvest.

Briefings are two hours long and are scheduled for the following dates and times in Building 8-80, off of Service Road:

• Sunday, September 13 at 2:00p.m.

• Wednesday, September 16 at 7:00p.m.

All fees collected are used for the protection, conservation and management of fish and wildlife at Fort Indiantown Gap, including habitat restoration and improvement, biologist staff and support costs and related activities.

Individuals should bring a current driver’s license, vehicle registration and hunting and fishing licenses. Bringing photocopies is encouraged. Anyone under the age of 18 is required to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Fort Indiantown Gap, headquarters to the DMVA and Pennsylvania National Guard, offers more than 17,000 acres and 140 training areas and facilities for year-round training.

It balances one of the region’s most ecologically diverse areas with a military mission that annually supports 19,000 Pennsylvania National Guard personnel and more than 130,000 other states’ Guard, military, law enforcement and civilian personnel each year. It is the only live-fire, maneuver military training facility in Pennsylvania.
