Leftover deer permits being sold on first come, first served basis
PRATT -- The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) has announced that 1,130 nonresident firearms deer permits are still available in several deer management units, as of the week of Nov. 26. These permits were not taken in the May nonresident application period and are all Firearms Whitetail Either Sex permits. They are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis and are available at license vendors or through the KDWP website.

Leftover permits by unit include the following:

  • Unit 6 -- 103 permits;
  • Unit 9 -- 111 permits;
  • Unit 10 -- 649 permits; and
  • Unit 11 -- 273 permits.

Hunters who purchase a leftover permit will lose any preference points they may have accumulated for next year's drawing. No hunter may purchase more than one permit that allows the take of an antlered deer. An antlered deer permit is required before purchasing a Whitetail Antlerless Only permit or Deer game tag, unless purchased after Dec. 30.
