Kansas hunters have a new option to purchase a five-year hunting and fishing licenses.
Kansas hunters and fisherman will have some new long-term options for licensing when they go afield this year.
KSN.com is reporting the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will now offer five-year licenses for hunting and fishing.
These five-year licenses can be purchased for just hunting or fishing, and there’s also the option to purchase one covering both. A license covering just hunting or fishing costs $102.50. Buying one of these licenses will save you $15 in annual license costs over the next five years.
But in an even better deal, $212.50 will cover you for hunting and fishing in Kansas for the next five years. If you want one of these licenses, you’d better hurry. The price goes up to $237.50 after February 1.
KDPS additionally said in a release that the new five-year licenses do not provide resident status the same way a lifetime license does. If you move out of Kansas and become a non-resident, you’ll still have to purchase non-resident deer and turkey permits.
If the idea of a hunting/fishing combo license is appealing, but you don’t want to drop over $200 on a license right now, the state is also offering a simple annual combo license for $42.50. You can again save a little money by buying before February 1 when the price goes up to $47.50.
The savings may not be huge in buying these five-year licenses, but it does represent a little extra pocket money you can put towards some new hunting and fishing gear.
