Hunting in Kansas: 5 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Your Kids

By    |   Thursday, 21 May 2015 01:38 PM

The procedures for hunting in Kansas for kids are just as complex as those for adults, given a highly regulated structure that is maintained by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT).

With the message "Protecting our hunting heritage through safe, knowledgeable and responsible hunters," the organization encourages conservation and wildlife knowledge building with education services, museums, and education centers.

Here are some of the primary considerations you should be aware of before applying for a hunting permit for your kids:

1. Age and Certification Status

Anyone less than 15-years-old may hunt without hunter education only if they are being supervised by a licensed hunter aged 18 or older. They do not require a hunting license.

2. Hunter Education
Your kids must be at least 11-years-old to be certified in a recognized hunter education course. Once passing the course, young hunters do not need to be supervised but must retake the course when old enough to apply for a hunting license at age 15. Alternatively, at 15, they can apply for an apprentice hunter license.

3. Hunting Permits Vary

Taking deer as an example, permits are generally divided into resident and nonresident categories. Then, there are the resident any-season white-tailed deer permits, resident archery either-species/either-sex deer permits and many more types.

In addition, you have variations on the hunting seasons in deer management units (the state of Kansas has 18 units). Season duration can also vary by the weapon type used by the hunter, whether bow, standard firearm or muzzleloader. Therefore, selecting the correct permit for the activity is crucial.

4. Online Purchase is Possible

Buying permits and licenses online is certainly a convenient way to satisfy state regulations for hunting in Kansas and permits are printed out at home when purchase is completed.

5. Buy Permits Locally

Kansas is divided into five administrative zones by the KDWPT. Each zone has a regional office and several district offices. There are also some out-of-state locations that provided Kansas permits.
