Man at a gate with a dog

Pick a property from the list or map to view landowner's access requirements.

Carefully check:

  • whether access is limited or unlimited (i.e. 5 hunters/day, unlimited, etc.)
  • is landowner contact required
  • when is access available (i.e. Aug. 1 - Dec. 31)
  • what types of hunting or fishing opportunities are allowed
  • what special restrictions exist (i.e. no fires or camping, travel only on existing roads, etc.)
  • what special notes are included

Please act responsibly and respect private property. Your attention to landowner's requirements will help ensure a successful Access Yes! program for the sportsmen of today and tomorrow.

Best of luck and memories in your hunting and angling adventures!
