Kansas Hunters for Access (KHA) is an organization dedicated to preserving public access for hunters in the state of Kansas. Our focus is on supporting the Walk-In Hunting Access (WIHA) Program, a program facilitated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks that compensates farmers, ranchers, and other landowners for permitting public access to their land, using funds from hunting license sales. This program is at risk due to poor behavior from some hunters and the high fees that outfitters and wealthy hunters are willing to pay for exclusive access to land. KHA is committed to advocating for the continuation and improvement of this important program.
KHA is devoted to combating the monopolization of hunting opportunity by showing appreciation to WIHA enrollees and incentivizing them to remain in the program. We do this by raising funds for appreciation gifts including agricultural supplies and equipment and gift certificates to local farm and ranch supply stores. Additionally, we organize work crews to conduct labor on participating farms and ranches, such as fixing fence, removing woody vegetation, and cleaning up trash.
Do you want to help protect high-quality, non-pay publicly accessible hunting? If so, please consider supporting KHA through donations or volunteering your time and labor. The future of WIHA rests with us.
