ND 2012 PLOTS Guide Atlas Now Available ( Private Land Open to Sportsmen )

Private Land Open to Sportsmen

Valid through Spring 2013
The annual PLOTS guide locates lands open to hunting through agreements
between the Department and private landowners, as well as public lands such
as wildlife management and waterfowl production areas. Printed guides will
be available in late August from license vendors and county auditors located
around the state.  View list of PLOTS Guide vendors.

View weekly webcast on PLOTS Guide details.

Note: PLOTS maps change frequently as new tracts are added and others
are removed. Maps on this page are the most current available and are
updated periodically to reflect recent changes.

What to do if you find a discrepancy between the PLOTS Guide and
 conditions on the ground? If you find an area listed as a PLOTS tract,
 but that is not marked with yellow triangular PLOTS signs from the
North Dakota Game and Fish Department, the department suggests that
you err on the side of caution and avoid entering the area until you have c
hecked it out with us.

Nonresident hunting restriction. Nonresidents may not hunt on lands
owned or leased by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, including
State Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) and Private Lands Open To
Sportsmen (PLOTS), for the first week of pheasant season (October 13-19).
This restriction applies to all types of hunting, not just pheasants. This
restriction does not apply to lands owned or managed by other state agencies
such as state school lands, federal lands such as US Fish and Wildlife Service
Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs), or to private lands not enrolled in the
Game and Fish Department's PLOTS program.
