Kansas Big Game Permit Winners Announced
Kansas Ag Connection - 02/12/2020

Commission Big Game Permit winners were drawn by Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commissioners during its meeting in Iola. The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism's (KDWPT) Commission Big Game Permit program allows eligible conservation organizations to apply for one of seven big game permits, which can then be sold to raise funds for pre-approved conservation projects. Organizations drawn may receive just one Commission Big Game Permit in a three-year period.

One elk, one antelope or up to seven deer permits are issued each year, depending on applicant preference. The permits are either-species/either-sex and are valid statewide during any season with legal equipment for that season; they do not count against other big game permits the license holder is eligible for.

Once the permit is sold, 15 percent of the total sale price is kept by the organization. The remainder raised is then remitted to KDWPT to be utilized on a jointly determined conservation project.

Seven deer permits were awarded to the following conservation groups this year:
