Special discounts: Are not available with online membership sales. If you request a discount on your paper application, please include a copy of the appropriate identification card with your form and check payable to ‘Penn Dixie.’ Incomplete applications will not be processed.

After-hours visitation:

We have created an on-site registration form for members. This form is kept inside a durable, weatherproof box at our entrance gate. We ask that you please use this form to indicate when you are on-site.

We will no longer accept phone messages, emails, or web forms for this purpose. When you do visit, be sure to park outside the gate on the lawn or gravel area so that your vehicle does not impede driveway traffic. As always, please carry your membership card with you at all times. And, be sure to observe our rules and procedures found at the bottom of our FAQ. Thank you for supporting Penn Dixie and happy hunting!
