Land ownership maps
« on: June 18, 2017, 02:44:04 PM »
Hello everyone, I am used to hunting the same area with no luck. I am trying to open my options and fine new areas to hunt this year and take it more seriously. Does anyone know of good statewide land ownership maps for free? I am trying to decipher where I can and cant hunt. Thank you!

Certainly not free, but onXmaps is well worth the cost.  Recently they've gone more digital and I believe the subscription can be used on your phone, computer and gps.  I have the Wyoming chip for my gps and it was/is more than worth it.

Hate to thread jack so let's call this a piggy back... :chuckle: but where do you guys buy a good topo map that also has the most accurate road depiction?

I have the OnXmaps for my desktop and it uploads to the handheld GPS. It is killer for landowner info.  :tup:

The state public land commission has a public land map they'll send for free (or at least they used a few years ago).  It shows at a resolution of about 1 square mile so you can usually make out things like the school land grant sections.  The problem is that locals (lessee's of said land or neighbors) make it hard to find access points.

When you vote for the State Land Commissioner what you should be looking for in the candidates is the one most favorable to public access.  I don't believe the current officeholder is particularly pro-active, for example doesn't have a website with access points for each and every block of land.
