Fees will cost more in Kansas

If you plan to fish or hunt in Kansas next year, expect to pay more for your license.

Starting in 2002, fees for many major permits will climb because of increased costs of running fish and wildlife programs, officials with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks said.

Here's a look at what to expect:


Small-game hunting permits will rise from $15 to $18 for residents and $65 to $70 for non-residents.

Fishing licenses will also go from $15 to $18 for residents and $35 to $40 for non-residents.

Combination hunting and fishing licenses will increase from $30 to $36 for residents.

Lifetime combination licenses will climb from $440 to $600.

The cost of 24-hour fishing permits will go from $3 to $5, while five-day non-resident fishing permits will increase from $15 to $20.

Trout permits will go from $7.50 to $10.
And those are just the major categories. There will be price increases in 15 other categories, including furharvester, guide and vessel registrations.

The good news for hunters is that deer or turkey permits will not be affected by the hikes.

"The last fee increase we had was in January of 1996," said Chad Luce, a public-information specialist for the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. "We felt this was necessary because of the increased costs of doing business.

"Our main needs were additional funding for the Walk-In Hunting Program, where we have to cover the costs of leasing land, and work on some of the dams on our state fishing lakes."
