In Aug. 2018, the Harvey County Commission, with the recommendation of the Harvey County Park Advisory Board, approved hunting in East Park on a one-year trial basis. The program is a partnership with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.  

The decision allowed for hunting of specified game, during specified times and days, during specified areas. The program allows for archery and waterfowl hunting.

Archery deer hunting will be available from Oct. 12 to Jan. 13 on a section north of Northwest 24th Street. Only one hunter can use the area per day, but can bring up to two other people. 

Waterfowl will be available Oct. 27 to Feb. 17 on the northernmost section of the lake, as well as an area just south of 24th. There will be four blinds set up for waterfowl hunting. One person can reserve one blind, and bring up to three other people. Hunting can only be done from the blind. 

To use the specified park ground, hunters must fill out an online registration form through iSportsman. You can sign up for an iSportsman account here. For more information on where you can hunt, click here

Hunters can reserve a hunting time beginning at 8 p.m. the day before. Reservations can be made daily.

After completing a hunt, hunters must check out from the system and report what was harvested.
