BISMARCK, North Dakota — A state guide that maps tracts of private land open to hunting in North Dakota is available online at the state Game and Fish Department website.
The free PLOTS guides also will be available at most hunting license vendors throughout the state beginning in early September. PLOTS stands for Private Lands Open to Sportsmen.
The program pays landowners who agree to keep their property open to public hunting. License fees paid by hunters funds the program.
This year's guide will feature about 735,000 acres, down from 760,000 acres last year. PLOTS land is marked by yellow inverted triangular signs.
