How do I know if I'm hunting public land

Question:

I hunted 68A last year and was told I was on private property. How do I find out if that is true or false? There was no fence or signs. Are there maps that show public and private land on 68A?

Answer:

There are a number of ways.  The BLM produces a nice set of maps covering most of Idaho.  Also several GPS units have programs that will show you ownership.  It is a good idea to be familiar with Idaho trespass law and posting requirements and carry a good map when hunting.
