The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism along with local law enforcement officials will be conducting joint checkpoints in Northeast Kansas in early December. These checkpoints are intended to enforce state and federal wildlife laws and state’s driver’s licensing laws. There will be two stages of checkpoints. The first stage will be local officials checking that drivers are properly licensed to drive. They will also be asking if you are hunters or are transporting wildlife. If you are, they will direct you to stage 2 where the KDWPT will take over to check hunting licenses and permits, count your game, and gather other important information. Drivers should not expect long delays at these checkpoints.
