Walk-In Hunting Access
The walk-in hunting access (WIHA) program in Kansas kicked off in 1995 in an effort to enhance the strong hunting heritage by providing hunting access to private property.  The program has grown to one of the most successful access programs in the country.  By 2004, over 1 million acres were enrolled in the program providing countless opportunities for sportsmen to pursue their favorite game at no additional charge.  Although the majority of the acreage provides good to excellent upland game bird hunting, some areas provide opportunities for deer, waterfowl, and squirrel hunting.  For more information, contact the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism at 620-227-8609.
