Either-Species/Either-Sex deer permits
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT)
reminds resident hunters that 2011 Firearm
Either-Species/Either-Sex Deer permit applications are due July 8.
Applications are available online at www.kdwpt.state.ks.us and must
be submitted online or by phone, 620-672-0728. No paper mail-in
applications will be accepted. These permits allow firearm hunters
to take a mule deer or white-tailed deer of either sex. General
resident permits cost $37.50. Landowner/tenant permits cost $22.50,
plus internet processing fees. Unsuccessful applicants will be
charged a $6.50 application fee and receive one preference point
for next year’s drawing.
There are two mule deer zones for resident firearm hunters. In
the West Zone (Deer Management Units 1, 2, 17, and 18), 1,290
permits are allocated. In the East Zone (Deer Management Units 3,
4, 5, 7, and 16), 1,000 permits are allocated.
Applications for limited resident elk permits valid in units 2A
(Ft. Riley), 2, and 3 (most of Morton County closed) are also due
July 8 through online application. Ten Either-Sex and 15
Antlerless-Only Elk permits are allocated for this drawing.
A unlimited number of Hunt-Own-Land Antlerless Only Elk and
Hunt-Own-Land Either Sex Elk permits will be available for most of
Kansas, except a portion of Morton County, which is closed to elk
hunting. A Hunt-Own-Land Elk permit is valid during any elk season,
and the bag limit is one elk as specified on the permit. These
permits will be available July 25, 2011, through March 14,
An unlimited number of general resident Antlerless-Only Elk
permits and Either-Sex Elk permits will be available over the
counter. These permits are valid in Unit 3 (most of Kansas except
Fort Riley and Morton County) only. The bag limit for each
unlimited over-the-counter elk permit will be one elk as specified
on the permit. These permits are also available July 25, 2011,
through March 14, 2012. While most elk in Kansas inhabit the Fort
Riley area, some small populations may be found in western Kansas
on private land. KDWPT recommends that hunters make sure they have
permission to hunt before purchasing a permit.
General resident Either-Sex Elk permits cost $252.50, and
landowner/tenant Either-Sex permits are $127.50. General resident
Antlerless-Only Elk permits cost $102.50. Landowner/tenant
