What is Bureau of Land Management Land?

BLM land can be found from the northernmost reaches of Alaska to the tip of Florida. In fact, BLM land takes up 12% of the U.S. landmass, encompassing 245 million acres of public lands for the American people. Recreational activities such as hunting, hiking, backpacking, fishing, and more abound on BLM lands, as do industries such as oil and gas. BLM’s grazing program helps support healthy grasslands, and some BLM-managed lands even function as outdoor laboratories where students learn about natural history.

Can I Hunt on BLM Land?

Millions of acres of BLM Land are open to hunting, but there are a few things for hunters to understand about public access to BLM Lands. BLM land is open to hunting, but you must have legal access to it—you are not guaranteed access through private lands to reach BLM land. BLM land shows in yellow in the onX Hunt App, so it’s easy to locate during your e-scouting. Be sure to check with your local BLM office every year before hunting, and take note of rule changes, fire restrictions, and road closures. It’s always best to do your homework in advance and check with the BLM office before you leave for your hunt.
