Unit 11 is by far the best unit in Kansas and is located on Kansas’s east border. This is where IMB Outfitters runs its whitetail deer hunts and take monster bucks.
All fees listed below will have an internet convenience fee added at time of applying online for a permit or preference point.
Nonresident White-tailed Deer permit (white-tailed deer buck, doe or fawn) – $322.50. Hunter applies in unit 11 and selects one adjacent unit in which to also hunt, as well as the season choice (archery, muzzleloader, or firearm) at the time of application.
Group Hunt in Kansas: The group hunt application is to accommodate those who do not want to hunt unless their hunting partners draw also. Applicants (up to 5) must apply for the same unit and the same weapon choice. You must have group leader's KDWP Customer ID Number to join the group. Muzzleloader permit holders may hunt during early muzzleloader season and regular firearm season using muzzleloader equipment only. If unsuccessful in the draw, hunter receives a $301 refund and a preference point for next year’s draw. If successful in the draw, you will also need to purchase a nonresident hunting license.
Preference Point -- $22.50. A nonresident hunter who doesn’t want to hunt in the current season can purchase a preference point that will count toward a white-tailed deer permit in a future drawing.
For purchase over-the-counter and online:
