Game Lands

These maps have been compiled by the N.C. 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 may not be 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.
