Hunting in Kansas: 4 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Adults

By    |   Thursday, 21 May 2015 01:27 PM

Hunting in Kansas (just like any other U.S. state) is an activity that is highly regulated and navigating the requirements necessary to comply with legal requirements is sometimes challenging as your application process will vary according to resident status, age, and desired hunting activity.

For the sake of clarity, it is necessary to distinguish between resident and nonresident requirements when necessary, ignoring the variety of permits available such as fur harvester, lifetime, or combination hunting and fishing.

Your permit selection will depend on preferences for deer, turkey, waterfowl, antelope, or other animal. Here are some of the primary considerations before applying for a hunting permit:

1. Your Age and Hunter Education Status
You must be born on or after July 1, 1957, to hunt in Kansas and hold a certification in a recognized course in hunter education. However, you (if aged 16 or older) can defer the education requirement by purchasing an apprentice license, which is valid as long as you hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter aged 18 or older.

2. Out-of-state Certification Accepted
Nonresidents can enjoy hunting in Kansas if they have completed a hunter education course from any other U.S. state, the Canadian provinces, Mexico and some other countries. If not certified, nonresidents can take a two-part crash course that involves an online section and a three-hour onsite course that includes gun handling, training, Kansas laws and regulations as well as game identification. Make sure your gun is unloaded as turning up with a loaded gun results in immediate disqualification.

3. Online Purchase is Possible
While adhering to data privacy regulations, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will use your social security number and other information to generate a unique customer number that is used in all future correspondence. After payment is made, you can simply print your license or permit.

4. Know Your Hunting Preference
Species will vary by distribution, with the entire state of Kansas divided into zones. Species will also have different hunting seasons. If you like hunting turkey for example, you need your hunting license and a turkey permit and tag.
