Elk NetworkKansas Program Offers Hunting on Private Land

General | July 18, 2018

Hunters who primarily rely on public land access to pursue their quarry will soon have the opportunity to apply for special hunts around the state that offer high-quality, limited-access experiences. Special hunts occur on private lands, as well as wildlife areas, state parks, federal lands and city- or county-owned properties not normally hunted. The result is that lucky hunters who draw enjoy almost exclusive access and greater harvest rates.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Special Hunts program provides hundreds of such hunts each fall, and there’s no charge. All hunters have to do is apply, and a random computer drawing will be conducted approximately one week after the deadline to determine who is selected.

Go here for application information, deadlines and regulations.
