State-sponsored land access programs go by many different names in different states. Typically, they are lands owned by private individuals that allow public hunting and have additional rules and regulations. Be sure to research the rules and regulations in your state regarding these properties thoroughly before you visit.
Each State Folder has its own State-Sponsored Land Access Program Layer. Click here to learn more about using the Map Layers Menu.
With the State-Sponsored Land Access Program Layer turned on, participating properties will have a grid of red dots inside the property. Access points are shown as green triangles. Areas inside the property that are off limits are shown with diagonal red lines.
