Game Lands Maps

These maps have been compiled by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission as an aid to hunters, trappers, fishermen and other users of over two million acres of North Carolina game lands. Tract boundaries as pictured in these maps may not be precise but are approximations of actual locations. Game land users should identify boundaries on the ground posted with NCWRC signs. Be sure to refer to North Carolina Hunting Regulations to identify regulations and exceptions specific to game lands.
