Welcome to the Montana Sportsmen's Atlas. This atlas has been created to serve as an interactive platform for planning your next hunt. Using the latest geospatial and web based technologies, this tool will provide you with a wealth of information on land ownership, hunting regulations, hunting access and past hunting statistics.

To get started using the Sportsmens's Atlas take note of the control bar at the top of the screen. This is where you will select map layers to toggle on and off. Clicking on the menu titled MapLayers will allow you to select map overlays showing land ownership, hunting districts Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) projects and FWP Block Management Areas. The next menu titled BaseLayer controls the background layer of the map. By clicking on this menu you can change the background to satellite, terrain or USGS Topo Maps. To retrieve info about the map layers, just click anywhere within the state of Montana. A dialog box will appear which tells you about the feature(s) you clicked on.

Each dot on this map represents a project funded through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The LWCF is the primary source of funding available to land management agencies to preserve critical wildlife habitat and develop access to public lands throughout Montana. The fund uses no tax payer dollars, rather uses a small percentage of the revenues from offshore oil and gas leasing.
