Resident Deer Permits Available
For the 2003 deer seasons, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) again is offering a number of resident deer permits that may be purchased without going through a drawing. Purchase forms for these permits are now available.
Whitetail Antlerless Only permits ($31) and Whitetail Antlerless Only Deer Game Tags ($11) may be purchased over the counter at county clerks’ offices, Wildlife and Parks offices, and many vendors of hunting equipment. Hunters may obtain no more than one Whitetail Antlerless Only deer permit and no more than four Whitetail Antlerless Only Deer Game Tags. Only one game tag may be used in Units 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 14, 17, and 18. The game tags are not valid on land managed by the Department of Wildlife and Parks.
Perhaps the most popular permit that may be purchased without going through the draw process is the Whitetail Either Sex permit ($31, general resident; $16, landowner/tenant). This year, for the first time, the Whitetail Either Sex permits can be purchased at various vendors, in addition to Wildlife and Parks offices. However, hunters are urged to order by mail or buy early to avoid long waiting lines.
