PRATT -- For the 2001-02 deer seasons, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks is offering a number of resident deer permits that may be purchased without going through a drawing. These permits will be available Aug. 1.
Two types of "permits" may be purchased over the counter at county clerks^ offices, Wildlife and Parks offices, and many vendors of hunting equipment. These include the whitetail antlerless only permit ($30.50) and whitetail antlerless only deer game tags ($10.50). Hunters may purchase one whitetail antlerless only deer permit and as many as four whitetail antlerless only deer game tags. (Any
hunter may purchase up to two deer game tags valid for units 1-18 and two deer game tags valid for units 1-16.) The game tags are not valid on land managed by the Department of Wildlife and Parks.
A third permit that may be purchased without going through the draw process is the whitetail either sex permit. Although guaranteed, this permit may only be purchased at Wildlife and Parks offices or through the mail. Hunters are strongly urged to order by mail to avoid long waiting lines at department offices.
Copies of Kansas deer permit and tag applications are available for download at the department^s website (www.kdwp.state.ks.us), by phoning (620) 672-5911, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
