Kansas Deer Permit Applications Online

because there's way too many outfitters leasing up all the good land and bringing rich out-of-state hunters in for "a chance at that trophy buck". :x Now I'm all for everyone having the opportunity to hunt, but I've seen way too many farmers "sell-out" to an outfitter because they'll pay $5,000-$10,000 to lease the land for a year. The outfitter turns around & charges $800/hunt + $500/deer to some rich doctors from wherever who can afford this on top of the $250 out of state license.

The farmer is happy cause he just made $5,000 - $10,000 to help compensate for his poor year of crops, the outfitter's happy cause he makes a killing off the 30+ hunters who most(if not all) get a deer, some rich a-hole who doesn't give a crap about the outdoors or hunting in general is happy cause he got a nice buck, all while the people like us who love the outdoors and hunting not just for what it is but for the time in the outdoors and the food in the freezer are kicked off land we've been hunting for years. Yes I'm speaking from experience, no I don't hate all outfitters, there are good aspects to outfitting, just not happy with this trend... Evil!

I know exactly how you feel Kansas Hunter, deer hunting is getting to be an extremely expensive sport. Land leases are going up dramatically, there are no more spots where a father and son can go hunting by themselves, you have to get at least 8 to 10 other hunters to chip in just to pay the bill. It is truly getting out of hand!!
