Well ~ I just got a call from my brother in Kansas, and he's trying to get me to join him for a turkey hunt this weekend. Ever since, I've been wading thru Kansas' hunting regulations, seeing what all I'd have to have, if I go.

After straining my eyes for a couple of hours, reading all the small print, I decided to just send the KDWP an e-mail, to hopefully get a response as to what I need, straight from the horses' mouth, so to speak. I'd sure hate to screw up, and end up in some trouble.

Anyways, as I was scanning their website, I came across something very interesting, to say the least. A disabled hunter can "hunt by proxy" (authority or power to act for another), with the correct permit. I've never heard of anything like that before ~ have you?!

Assistance to Hunt:

Permanently disabled persons in possession of an archery permit may use crossbows or locking draws while hunting deer, as permitted under KAR 115-18-7, by application and special permit.

Any person with a permanent physical or visual disability that prevents the person's ability to hunt safely, as certified by a physician, may be eligible to obtain a permit to designate someone else to take a legal limit of game for the permit holder.

More than likely, the reg only applies to resident hunters.

Besides ~ after seeing what it's gonna cost me for a hunting license & turkey permit, I ain't about to let anyone hunt in my place...

Hunting license: $72.15

Turkey Permit: $32.15
______

$104.30 :eek:

And you gotta buy a second permit to get your second bird! With the 'internet convenience fee' mine came up to be $140 and some change! :eek:

Yeah, I figured "What the heck ~ why not go ahead and get 2 tags..."

AND hunt all day... :D

Yep ~ Unit 2...Linn County, just South of Parker, KS.

I'm going hunting, I'm going hunting! :banana:

Just in the nick of time, too. I've been chompin' at the bit, since the first of the month...

hey rick seems to me like since your going turkey hunting and going to have to buy your small game hunting permit (the 72.15) any way
you just as well plan some phesant hunts out there this fall

just get 6 or 7 more guys to go with you and you can block the ends while they work the feild to you. thats how we hunt any way
worked great for my great grand dad when he got to were he couldn't get around well.

best of luck with that turkey bird man

Forgot to mention this also..

I got my KWDP non-resident hunting permit online and it was quick and painless.
Dont know about turkey tags, but you may want to check it out. You apply, pay and print it off in bout 10min. :wave:

Thanks for the heads-up, guys... :wave:

Yeah, I thought of that too, Tony. I can also use the hunting permit during deer season too, eh?!

BTW ~ When do you have to have your application in by, for a deer tag? :confused:

rick non residents have the month of may to apply for deer tags.

now i am not totally fimilar with how it works but something like landowners can get and resale there tags to any one. its a very strange deal i am not sure much about it but might be something to check in to if you have some friends out there. Deer season is also phesant season

Thanks for the info! :cheers:

It's ironic ~ I was born & raised in Kansas, and just moved to Missouri 10 years ago. I've never hunted in Kansas before, either...

I'll have to talk to my brother & cousins about the deer tags(my bro rents, but my cousins are landowners).

Most (if not all) the pheasant hunting is in the Northern part of KS, ain't it? If so, I don't know anyone up that way. Most all my family lives in either Kansas City, KS ~ or in Pleasanton & Mound City area.

The pheasant population in northern kansas is rebounding but is still down from past years. I think the best pheasant hunting is in the southwestern part of the state.

I never really though of the phesants in ks as being a north south thing
more an east west thing.
it seems to me the number of birds cycles alot they only live 2-3 years with no hunting pressure but can have up to 3 hatches a year so if conditions are good the birds can multiply fast but bad conditons they can decress as the birds don't live long

grand dad always said get west of witchta to hunt ringnecks east is quail country (the old timers belief)
in the past couple years the quail and pheasnts have been better than quite possiably ever longer than any one i know can remember any way
even far west we see lots of quail now.
we hunt mostly dodge city area and hays area its been great. i would guess you won't have much luck with ring neck were your at but DO NOT over look the WMA areas if you get a chance to voage further west. they have a map with them all and there private land that basicaly has a public lease. if you get the map head to an area and just drive looking for ones close to water or boardering crop land you can find birds. there open for deer and turkey hunting as well its a good program in my opinion.
