Apply Online For Kansas Elk And Either-species Deer Permits

PRATT – The application deadline for limited elk and either-species deer firearm permits is July 13, 2018. Kansas residents may apply online at for one of 12 Either-species Elk permits and 15 Antlerless-only Elk permits allocated for Unit 2a (Ft. Riley). And resident hunters who want to hunt mule deer with a firearm can apply for limited Either-species Deer permits valid in the East or West zone. Those who don’t wish to hunt this year may purchase a preference point that will count toward a firearm Either-species/Either-sex Deer permit in a future drawing or a bonus point for limited elk permits.

Elk permit applicants only pay the application fee ($12.81) when applying. Successful applicants will be notified by mail and the permit fee will be collected. Unsuccessful applicants will automatically receive a bonus point. Anyone who receives a limited Either-sex Elk permit is not eligible to apply again.
