More than 4,000 permits left over, on sale June 18
PRATT — The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) has completed the nonresident deer permit drawing for the 2012 seasons, and for those applicants who were unsuccessful, there’s good news: more than 4,000 permits were left over in other units after the initial drawing. These permits are being sold online at ksoutdoors.com on a first-come, first-served basis. Click License/Permits on the home page.

Those hunters whose favorite unit does not have leftover permits may purchase a permit for an adjacent unit, if it has leftover permits, then select their favorite unit as the adjacent unit where they may also hunt.

Nonresident hunters who were successful in the drawing should have received their permits in the mail about the second week in June. Those who were unsuccessful — more than 600 applicants — were notified about the same time. Applicants can check the number of deer permits by unit that are still available online at the KDWPT website, ksoutdoors.com, under “Hunting/Applications-and-Fees/Deer/Quotas-and-Draw-Stats.” Department staff will update this site frequently.

Applicants can check the status of individual applications at https://www1.ks.wildlifelicense.com/results_lookup.php.
