Unfilled deer tags may be used to take antlerless whitetails with legal equipment
PRATT – The New Year may be ringing in, but there’s still time for hunters to use any unfilled permits from the 2014 deer season. Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, hunters make take antlerless white-tailed deer using any legal equipment. Deer Management Unit (DMU) restrictions listed on the permits are still in effect, and season length varies, depending on the DMU. While hunters must have a permit that allows the harvest of an antlered deer before purchasing antlerless-only permits during the regular seasons, whitetail antlerless permits can be purchased over the counter by anyone during the extended season.
Hunters may purchase up to five whitetail antlerless-only permits; however, unit and public land restrictions may apply. See your2014 Kansas Hunting and Furharvesting Regulations Summary, or visit ksoutdoors.com and click “Hunting/Big Game Information/Deer”, for details.
2015 Extended Firearm Season dates, by DMU, are as follows:
Units 6, 9, 10, 17: Jan 1-4
Units 1-5, 7, 8, 11-14, and 16: Jan. 1-11
Units 10A, 15, and 19: Jan. 1-18
There is also an Extended Whitetail Antlerless-only Archery Season in DMU 19 Jan. 19-31, 2015.
