The best resources for public land??

4 posts in this topic

What are the best resources for public land maps and locations that you use?? I'm aware of the gazateers, the PRIM maps and the DNR Wildlife Lands brochures but what other resources are out there?

For example I know phesants forever owns land but I have never seen it marked on a map anywhere, or must you be a member to see these lands? How about national wildlife refuge maps, where are these accesible? What are valuable resources do you use for finding public land and determining its boundries it it is unmarked?? For those of you willing to disclose?

On my Lorance iFinder Pro I have the Public areas mapped on my gps. It was a feature I selected when I downloaded the mapping options. That way I know when I am still on Public land and when I am getting close to private land. It works like a charm. It has prove to be very accurate over the last two years. I also like being able to overlay the topographical information so I know exactly where I want to be, even if I haven't been to the spot before. This can be useful if you have to move because of other hunters, or other reasons.

a recent county plat book is probably the best bet

from my experience the PRIM maps are ok but miss a lot of smaller parcels of private land, which can be important when it comes to access.

TropheyEyes, where would I find that download? Would it work for an H2O?

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
