Hunting Information  

Last Updated: 10/06/2014




The "unitization" agreements among the State Land Office or Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Department and several landowners in the southeastern part of the state are designed to benefit sportsmen and landowners. Under the agreements, unitized State Trust or BLM land would be treated as private property and would be closed to hunting and trapping. The private lands covered under the agreements then would be open to public hunters and trappers.


Unitization agreements give hunters and trappers access to private land while providing landowners greater flexibility in maintaining ranching operations on often-landlocked public lands.
