Access Yes!

A hunter and angler's guide to Access Yes! Properties

Access Yes! is a program designed to improve access to private land or through private land to public land by compensating willing landowners who provide access.


Nearly 1 million acres! In 2019, Access Yes! opened 328,066 acres of private land and provided access to 525,115 acres of public land for hunters and anglers.

How to Use This Guide

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 hunters and anglers of today and tomorrow.
