During their June 22nd public hearing, members of the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission approve recommendations to initiate a lottery draw system for distribution of non-resident turkey permits set to begin in 2024.
Commissioners passed amendments to implement an application period for non-resident turkey hunters to apply for a specific hunt unit in early January thru mid-February. Similar to Kansas’ lottery draw for non-resident deer permits, any leftover non-resident turkey permits will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The next Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission meeting will take place on August 17, 2023, in hybrid format at Pittsburg State University’s Bicknell Center VIP Room in Pittsburg.
