Hunting public land in Kansas

Postby amishnightmare » Tue Nov 20, 2012 9:32 am

I have been seriously looking into going to Kansas just to hunt there public land. I live in NW Arkansas. We have "OK" sized deer here but nothing like up there! I have been researching on what i would need to do but i can't find out about getting a hunting licence. Do you go to a local gas station and pick one up or do you have to put in for a permit in that zone (which i don't know how to do) or what? I've emailed people but nothing back. i have a plan! My plan is for me and my friend to go to Kansas and video our hunt at that beginning of bow season up there. Thank you every one, and safe hunting!

doesn't have to be just Kansas. It can be Iowa, Illinois, or TX. :D

I am from Northern Illinois and I know that anyone can buy a non resident hunting liscence and archery tags over the counter. I am not that familiar with availability of public land in southern Illinois (close to you) but it can be a little scarce up here (I live about 20 miles from Wisconsin). I look online at availabilty of public land in wisconsin and minnesota and drool. They have tons campared to Illinois. We have some great deer but the Chicago politicians run the entire state, and we can see how well the no (legal) gun policy is working in Chicago...

Good luck!

All you have to do to get a Kansas tag is go onto the Kansas DNR web site & follow the instructions.
They have a draw but they have over the counter tags after the draw at least that is how it works for the part of the state I hunt.

I know you can buy an over the counter license and archery tags for non-residents in IL no matter where you're hunting. i think you may have to apply for firearm tags though... unless there are extras that can be purchased OTC...

$450ish

I don't know why I just told you that when what I wanted to say was that I spent hours looking through a dozen DNR sites and so can you.
