Over the Counter Deer Permits Available July 30

Resident deer permits available online or from license vendors statewide

Purchasing a resident deer permit has never been more convenient for Kansas hunters. Beginning July 30, all over-the-counter permits will go on sale, and for residents, that’s just about every deer permit available. The only deer permit that requires an application for resident hunters is the firearm either-species permit, which allows the harvest of a mule or white-tailed deer during the firearm season. Resident Whitetail Any Season, Statewide Archery, Muzzleloader Either-Species, and antlerless-only permits can be purchased over the counter or online. The application period for resident Firearm Either-species, Either-sex permits closed July 12.

In addition to a deer permit, resident hunters age 16 through 74 must have a resident hunting license, unless exempt by Kansas Law.

Deer permits can be purchased online at, or from your local state park office or license vendor. For a list of vendor locations near you, visit and click “License,” “Permits,” “Locations to Buy License,” and “Permits.”
