Game Lands

 

These maps have been compiled by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission as an aid to hunters, trappers and fishermen who use the two million acres of North Carolina game lands. Tract boundaries as pictured in these maps are not precise but are approximations of actual locations. Game land users should identify boundaries on the ground before hunting, trapping or fishing. Game lands are posted with signs to aid sportsmen in locating each tract. Be sure to refer to Hunting/Trapping regulations to identify regulations and exceptions specific to game lands.

 

Two ways to view Game Land Maps on-line:

Interactive Game Land Map

 


Open the interactive map to search game lands by county or address, filter by specific species or facilities. You may get driving directions to game lands, download game land maps, rules and regulations, and print an area of interest.
