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?

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
