Tagging Instructions

 

 

CARCASS TAG

Each permittee shall possess an appropriate carcass tag while hunting big game. Except for an elk taken under an "any elk" permit, the head of the harvested animal shall accompany the carcass while in transit from the site of the kill to the permittee's residence or to a place of processing or preservation. Any legally acquired meat may be given to and possessed by another, if a dated written notice that includes the donor's printed name, signature, address, and permit number accompanies the meat. The person receiving the meat shall retain the notice until the meat is consumed, given to another, or otherwise disposed of.

ASSISTANCE TO BIG GAME PERMIT HOLDERS

*A Kansas resident hunting license is required (unless exempt by Kansas law) to herd or drive big game for a permit holder.

*Permanently disabled persons in possession of an archery permit may use crossbows or locking draws while hunting antelope, as permitted under KAR 115-18-7, by application and special permit. Any person with a permanent physical or visual disability that prevents the person's ability to hunt safely, as certified by a physician, may be eligible to obtain a permit to designate someone else to take a legal limit of game for the permit holder. However, a permittee who is, because of disability, unable to pursue a wounded big game animal may designate any individual to assist in pursuing and dispatching a big game animal wounded by the disabled permittee.
