Michigan Hunters: Find the perfect fall hunting spot with DNR's interactive online mapping tool

With fall hunting seasons under way in Michigan, the Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters and outdoor enthusiasts that Mi-HUNT – a cutting-edge, Web-based, interactive mapping application – can help plan their next hunting or outdoor adventure. Mi-HUNT is available atmi.gov/mihunt.
Mi-HUNT allows users to view and navigate through all public lands open to hunting and trapping in Michigan. It is easily accessible through the Web browser on smartphones or computers and provides the most up-to-date information, customizable to fit each individual’s outdoor interests and trip-planning needs.
The interactive layers of Mi-HUNT allow the user to view:
  • All state game and wildlife areas, federal land, state forest land and private lands open to hunting and trapping.
  • Recently updated vegetation cover types on over 7 million acres of state and federal land.
  • Topography of land.
  • Recreational facilities such as forest campgrounds, trails, boat launches and parking areas.
  • Aerial photography.
  • Street maps and directions.
Video tutorials are provided for assistance on navigating through Mi-HUNT’s key features. Many related resource links also are available at the click of a button. 
Mi-HUNT was made possible with grants from the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The application was jointly developed by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget, the Center for Shared Solutions and Technology Partnerships and the DNR.
