How can I increase my chances of being drawn?

There are a few different ways you can increase your chances of being drawn in the Kansas Nonresident Deer Draw:

-If you apply for a deer management unit (DMU) that has unfilled permits from the previous year, you are automatically entered into a second chance drawing for those units.
-If you apply with a group, each member of the group will receive an equal chance of being drawn.
-You may only submit one application per household.
