From the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks
-- Beginning Dec. 15, the Department of Wildlife and Parks will offer Kansas residents a multi-year youth hunting and/or fishing license, providing convenience and saving money for young hunters and anglers.
The new youth licenses will be available for resident youth age 16 through 20. After purchasing the multi-year license, no hunting or fishing license will have to be purchased until the person turns age 21. The one-time purchase, multi-year youth fishing or hunting license is $40. A one-time purchase multi-year youth fishing/hunting combination license is $70.
The new youth license is intended to encourage young hunters and anglers and their parents to get outside and enjoy what Kansas has to offer.
All resident hunters and anglers age 16-64 must purchase an annual hunting, fishing or combination license, so the new multi-year license is a great bargain. The cost of an annual resident hunting or fishing license is $20.50. The annual resident combination license is $38.50.
Resident youth will save $62.50 if they purchase the multi-year fishing or hunting license when they turn 16. A 16-year-old will save $122.50 if they buy the multi-year combination license.
In addition to these licenses, all 2011 licenses and permits go on sale Dec. 15 and are valid for the remainder of 2010 and all of 2011. Online license and permit sales are available online at http://www.kdwp.state.ks.us/news/License-Permits. Licenses and permits may also be purchased over-the-counter at sporting goods stores.
