Hunting and fishing license fees to rise in January

Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission fee increases for fishing and hunting licenses Oct. 22. The new fees will be effective starting Jan. 1.

A resident annual hunting or fishing license currently costs $18, but will increase to $25. However, value-added options are built into the new fee structure, including $45 for a hunting/fishing combination annual license, and an early bird combination discount of $40 if purchased before Feb. 1.

Resident deer permits will go from $30 to $40, and nonresidents will pay $415 for the combination permit.

Resident turkey permits are set at $25 while nonresidents will pay $50 for a fall turkey permit and $60 for a spring one.

Nonresidents will pay $95 for an annual hunting license and $50 for an annual fishing license.

Lifetime hunting and fishing licenses will go from $440 to $500 and $880 to $960 for a combination.
