Finding Minnesota Public Hunting Land Maps
Finding good public hunting land can be difficult for any hunter. Even in states where forests still abound, public hunting lands can be scarce. However, those who live in Minnesota have access to more hunting land than residents of many other states.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is a great place to start in locating Minnesota public hunting land maps. In general, hunting land in Minnesota falls into the following categories: Wildlife Management areas, state forests, Wildlife Protection Areas, National Wildlife Refuges, National Forests, and county owned land and Industrial Forest land. The restrictions and hunting regulations can vary somewhat within each type of hunting land. The DNR can provide Minnesota public hunting land maps of where all state managed public hunting lands are located.
Wildlife Management areas are typically wetlands, uplands or woods and are managed by the Department of Natural Resources. They are open to the public for hunting during regular hunting season.
Minnesota boasts 56 state forests that make up 3 million acres. Most of this acreage is open to public hunting. State forests contain moose, bear, ruffled grouse and deer.
Wildlife protection areas are federally managed wetlands and uplands. They are open to public hunting, but there may be catch limits. Minnesota public hunting land maps for these areas can be found by looking at the Minnesota Public Recreation Information (PRIM) maps.
Minnesota also has eight national wildlife refuges. Some portions of these refuges are open for hunting, but there are restrictions. You can obtain Minnesota public hunting land maps and regulations for these areas by contacting the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
Minnesota has two national forests – the Chippewa and the Superior. Both are located in the northern part of the state, and they are open to public hunting. For Minnesota public hunting land maps of these areas, contact the US National Forest Service.
Some counties in Minnesota also manage forested lands that are owned by the country due to tax defaults. The amount of acreage and hunting regulations on these areas vary by county. So, it’s wise to check with the county to obtain maps and to determine regulations.
Finally, there is industrial forest land in Minnesota, and much of it is open for public hunting. The lands are owned by large forest products companies. In general, the land is open for hunting unless it is posted otherwise. However, normal hunting laws and seasons apply. Often the lands are only open to visitors during hunting season.
So, as you can see, public hunting in Minnesota is fairly abundant. Check with the appropriate resources in your area to get the maps and information you need to find the perfect public hunting adventure right here in Minnesota.
