BISMARCK – The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s Private Land Open To Sportsmen Guide for 2022 is now available on the Game and Fish website at gf.nd.gov. In addition, the free printed PLOTS guides will be available in late August at most license vendors and other locations throughout the state.

The guide will feature about 800,000 PLOTS acres. Because the guide is printed in mid-August, some PLOTS tracts highlighted in the guide may have been removed from the program since the time of printing. There will also be some PLOTS tracts where the habitat and condition of the tract will have changed significantly. Conversely, Game and Fish may have added new tracts to the program after the guide went to press.

To minimize possible confusion, Game and Fish will update PLOTS map sheets weekly on its website.

The Federal Duck Stamp, which sells for $25, raises approximately $40 million in sales each year. Funds from stamp sales support critical conservation to protect wetland habitats in the National Wildlife Refuge System.

The PLOTS guide features maps highlighting these walk-in areas, identified in the field by inverted triangular yellow signs, as well as other public lands.

The guides are not available to mail, so hunters will have to pick one up at a local vendor or Game and Fish offices, or print individual maps from the website.

What to read next
The PLOTS Guide, which features information on walk-in tracts, also includes public land hunting access information, including more than 200 wildlife management areas totaling about 220,000 acres.

“Nobody has done it solo that I’m aware of – male or female,” Eklund said. “So I’m the first one. And as far as kayaks go, I don’t think anybody’s done it in a kayak.”
The flicker is a woodpecker, but it has its own habits, some of them quite different than those of its woodpecker relatives.
