Plot Maps

8 posts in this topic

Any one know where or how I get a plat map for counties in MN.

I moved up to the cities a few years ago and the public land isn't working out for the bow and bigger bucks.

I'm going to go knock on some doors next year before bow season and try to find some private land. Any suggestions on counties to looks at?

Or is there any one looking to split up some lease land and share the cost? Looking for something with in a 1.5 hour radius of Northern Subs.

Any help would be great, Or drop my a PM at

Internet search of "Minnesota Bookstore." Then look for county PLAT books.

I'm assuming that you mean plat maps. Some counties have property information in the form of interactive GIS-based maps online. Dakota, Scott and Ramsey have very good ones, as does numerous non-metro counties. Unfortunately, I don't think Anoka County is one of them though. As far as purchasing plat books, go directly to the county as they will have the most up-to-date version.

so haaad,

Your speaking Greek to me. blush Any idea on how to find this info online. I've google search and can't find anything. I don't really real like spending $100 for a book on who owns land, and its likely I won't get permission anyway.

I know knocking door to door and getting land is very unlikely, but I don't have $1,000 to spend for a lease.

That's why I'm wiling to drive 1-2 hours out of the cities and hoping to get lucky or split a lease with some one.

JonnyD,

It is entirely possible to get permission from private landowners. But you do need to do it a little ahead of time.

I have done several things to get permission to hunt some awesome land.

Here are a few ideas for you.

1) Offer to help around the yard during the off season.

2) Knock and lots of doors. Eventually you will hit a home run.

When you do knock, have a photo copy of your drivers license handy. You can also have some references at the bottom.

3) If you hunt during the archery season or the Muzzy season you will have more luck. This way the land owners don't have to work around the Rifle season guys.

The further out of the cities, the better luck you will have.

If you go north to the Hinckley area, it can be fantastic.

Just a thought or two.

Johnny, in the past I have looked up the county seat online and then ordered the plat book through them. Depending on the county, you may have to do it by phone or standard mail.

Another tip for gaining permission: Create a small bio about yourself including your DL #, vehicle info, etc., but also include personal info such as family, church, hobbies. We gained access to 700 acres in Iowa and made some lasting friendships this way.

Good luck!

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
