The Best Place to Buy BLM Maps to Plan Your Western Hunt
July 22, 2010.
I recently drew tags for two really solid public land hunts in Wyoming — one for mule deer in Unit 90, the other for antelope in Unit 61.
As the first step in planning public land hunts like these, I always want BLM and Forest Service maps that show me where public land boundaries are.
When I want maps like this, I always go to the Map Center of the Public Lands Information Center (PLIC).
Public Lands Interpretive Association initiated the Public Lands Information Center project, with grants from the Forest Service and BLM, in response to demand for a single source of information about recreation and land use on all public lands in a state, regardless of managing agency.
The PLIC Map Center is very hunter-friendly!
For each western state, you can access an online map that shows hunting areas. When you click on a hunting area (or pick your hunting area from a dropdown), you are shown the list of applicable BLM maps.
For my upcoming hunts, it only took me a few clicks to have all the BLM maps I needed heading my way.
I use the PLIC Map Center every time I am planning a public land hunt, and shipping is always very prompt.
