More than 4,000 leftover permits available to nonresidents

PRATT — The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) has announced nonresident deer permits are still available for the 2010 season. These are permits that were not taken in the April nonresident application period. They are Whitetail Either-Sex permits (hunter designates equipment/season choice, as well as one adjacent unit, at time of purchase) and will be sold, first come, first served, to any nonresident who does not possess a 2010 permit. Leftover permits go on sale June 15 at 12:01 a.m., online at the KDWP website (www.kdwp.state.ks.us). Those who don’t have access to a computer may call the Licensing Section at 620-672-0728, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

The following deer management units have leftover Nonresident Whitetail Either-Sex Deer permits: Unit 6 — 148, Unit 9 — 169; Unit 10 — 677; Unit 11 — 327; Unit 12 — 192; Unit 13 — 366; Unit 14 — 392

Hunters who purchase a leftover permit will lose any preference points they may have accumulated. Applicants who were successful in the nonresident drawing may not purchase a leftover permit. In addition to a nonresident deer permit, hunters are also required to purchase a nonresident hunting license.
