KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Beginning this month, hunters and anglers will benefit from a new-and-improved system designed to make accessing public lands in Kansas easier than ever. As part of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ (KDWP) all-new licensing purchase system – Go Outdoors KS – outdoor recreationalists will not need a separate login to “check in” and out of KDWP-managed properties, as the Go Outdoors KS licensing system and mobile app is fully integrated.
“We’re thrilled to offer an improved customer experience for our constituents, especially in advance of our fall seasons this year,” said Shanda Knapic, Chief of Licensing for KDWP. “Go Outdoors KS is a critical tool for hunters and anglers to safely, legally, and easily enjoy outdoor recreation in our state, and it can be accessed right from a smartphone or mobile device.”
Hunters and anglers who are familiar with KDWP’s previous licensing solution, and check-in system, will notice:
- A single sign-in feature, eliminating the need to remember multiple logins
- All-in-one access, as customers may now access license purchases and check-ins from the same location
- Greater ease of use, as the customer experience remained “top of mind” throughout the system’s development
Those wishing to explore KDWP’s new-and-improved hunting and fishing licensing system may do so from any web browser or smart device. Here’s how:
