Weekend Wildlife Checkpoints Planned

KSAL StaffOctober 8, 2015

Kansas game wardens and state troopers will be out conducting wildlife checkpoints this weekend.

According to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, Tourism deer, dove and duck seasons will be underway. Checkpoints are planned in various Central Kansas locations are planned for this Sunday. The checkpoints are intended to help enforce state and federal wildlife laws, as well as the state’s driver’s licensing laws.

KHP troopers will operate the first stage of the checkpoints to ensure drivers are properly licensed to be driving. If a driver does not have a valid license, appropriate enforcement actions will be taken. Travelers should not expect major delays from this portion of the checkpoints.

Occupants of vehicles in the first check lane will be asked if they are hunters or are transporting wildlife. If they answer yes in either case, drivers will be directed to a nearby KDWPT check lane where Kansas game wardens will check for required licenses and permits, count the game and gather biological, harvest, and hunter success information. This portion of the checkpoints should also cause minimal delay.

The following locations may be used if weather conditions and manpower allow:

  • US-81 at milepost 161, Ottawa County
  • US-56 and K-46 intersection, McPherson County
  • K-156 at milepost 165, Ellsworth County
  • US-281 and US-50 intersection, Stafford County
  • K-156 and US-56 intersection, Pawnee County
  • US-281 and K-4 intersection, Barton County

Additional wildlife checkpoints will occur around the state during the fall and winter hunting seasons.
