Nonresident hunters who were unable to draw a Kansas deer permit during the April nonresident application period shouldn’t consider themselves out of the running just yet. As of July 10, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) still had 902 leftover nonresident deer permits available for purchase. These Nonresident Either-sex White-tailed Deer Combo Permits will be sold online, first-come, first-served basis, and are available for Deer Management Units (DMUs) 9, 10, 11, 13, and 14.
Up-to-date information on the total number of permits available for any given unit can be viewed by visiting ksoutdoors.com and clicking “Hunting,” “Applications and Fees,” “Deer,” and “Quotas and Draw Stats.” To purchase a 2013 Nonresident Either-sex white-tailed deer permit, visit ksoutdoors.com and click “License/Permits.” Permits may also be purchased from KDWPT license vendors or by calling (620) 672-5911.
During the time of purchase, hunters may designate equipment and season, as well as one adjacent unit to hunt in. 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 taking of an antlered deer. An antlered deer permit is required before purchasing additional Antlerless-only White-tailed Deer Permits. All nonresident White-tailed Either-sex Deer Combo Permits include two tags; one good for a buck or doe, and one valid for a white-tailed antlerless deer.
