Disposing of Furbearers


A fur dealer's license is required to buy raw pelts of furbearers or coyotes, and furharvesters may sell raw pelts only to licensed fur dealers. A furharvester’s license is required to sell furbearers, even if taken on one’s own land.

Skinned carcasses and meat of furbearers may be sold or given to non-fur dealers, and raw furs, pelts, or skins of furbearers may be given to non-fur dealers if a written notice including the seller’s or donor’s name, address, and furharvester license number accompanies the carcass, pelt, or meat. A bobcat or swift fox tag shall meet this requirement.

Live, wild caught furbearers and coyotes may not be sold or purchased in Kansas. Restrictions above apply to internet sales.
