    Hunters have until 9 a.m., Sept. 29 to apply for fall and winter special hunts

    PRATT – Outstanding hunting grounds exist throughout the state, but for the average hunter, gaining access to private land areas may be difficult. The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism designed the Special Hunts Program to ensure hunters have quality outdoor experiences. Special hunts provide hunters with temporary access to lands not normally open to unrestricted hunting. Hunters interested in experiencing a special hunt for this fall or winter can apply online at by clicking “Hunting/Special Hunts Information.” The deadline for Nov.-Jan special hunts is Sept. 29 at 9 a.m. 

    Approximately 650 hunts are currently available for the fall and winter months, and a random computer drawing will be conducted within one week of the application deadline to determine who will be awarded special hunts. Lucky hunters can draw hunts that provide access to specific areas for just a day or up to the entire season.

    During the application process, hunters will select what species they want to hunt as well as what type of hunt they prefer, be that an open hunt, a youth hunt, or a mentored hunt. Open hunts are available to all successful applicants, regardless of age or hunting experience. Youth hunts require parties to include at least one youth 18 or younger, accompanied by an adult 21 or older who will not hunt. And mentored hunts are open to both youth and novice hunters supervised by a mentor 21 or older who may also hunt.

    Hunters are reminded that special hunt permits only provide access to the properties and do not include any licenses or permits.

    For more information on the Special Hunts Program, visit and click “Hunting/Special Hunts Information,” or contact KDWPT public land supervisor Mike Nyhoff at (785) 628-8614 or by email at

    IASourceLink: Why You Should Know About Fair Use

    By Valyn Reinig | September 04, 2014 --- Small business owners have a lot on their plates. Between meetings, scheduling, budgets, traveling and working all week, checking to make sure there are no copyright restrictions on the images used in promotional materials, might not be on their radar. It’s just as important though, and here’s why. Copyright laws can be confusing, but they’re put in place to protect the rights of the creator. What gets tricky is that the line between the creator’s rights and public’s interest can be pretty grey. Understanding the basics of copyright laws and Fair Use can help you stay in the clear and avoid getting heavily fined for using someone else’s work.
