Kansas Hunters - RED ALERT !

This is a call to arms for all Hunter Nation members, and all Kansas hunters.  On Tuesday 4-30-2024 the Kansas legislature will vote on a bill that will do more to help Kansas hunters than any bill in the last 20 years.

It is CCR 2530. It will allow hunters to have better representation on the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission. It will help to ensure that deer feeding will continue to be legal in Kansas. If the bill is not passed, Hunter Nation anticipates that the current commission will renew their efforts to ban deer feeding in Kansas. We just can’t let that happen.

A group of liberal activists deceptively calling themselves Kansas, Back Country Hunters and Anglers is falsely claiming that hunters don’t want the bill. They don't speak for Real Kansas Hunters. This same group opposes drilling for oil and gas on public lands, and has opposed helping veterans access hunting activities by using crossbows during early archery season.

Please email your State Senator and your State Representative Tuesday (4-30-2024) before noon and urge them to vote for CCR 2530.

  • Tell them Real Hunters Support CCR 2530!
  • Tell them Kansas Attorney General avid hunter Kris Kobach wants it.
  • Tell them Kansas hunters want it. 
  • Tell them YOU want it!

The real hunters need to speak out ASAP!

Help Get Real Hunters on the
Kansas Department of Wildlife (KDWP) Commission

Kansas HB 2882 was introduced Wednesday January 24, 2024 (Updated Feb. 20, 2024)

Short Title

Increasing the membership of the Kansas wildlife and parks commission from seven to nine, granting membership appointment authority to multiple state officers and prohibiting more than three commissioners from being residents of the same congressional district.

Share Your Support for Kansas House Bill 2852 with Committee

Did you know the majority of the commission has never deer hunted?

Sadly, it's true! Their lack of hands on experience is jeopardizing Kansas wildlife and our hunting lifestyle.

You can help get hunters on the Wildlife & Parks Commission!

The Problem: Current Commission = Poor Decision Making

  • Trying to ban deer feeding
  • Anti-landowner policies
  • Drastic restrictions on public land hunting activities
  • Poor wildlife management decisions

The Solution: Pass Kansas House Bill 2582 = Improved Wildlife Policy & Management

  • Ensures more commission members are hunters
  • Improves the appointment process for commissioners
  • Increases the number of Commissioners from 7 to 9
  • Better representation of state-wide hunters


  • February 16, 2024 in Topeka, Kansas
