    I've looked at maps & plat book maps but i'm looking for something like the google maps with propertylines attached or over shadowed. I got yelled at yesterday for crossing private land that i thought was public. I even had a map printed off the computer to show that i was in the right......the guy was a real jerk and said to "take your pretty little behind back to stateland " Can you guys help????:sad:

    County plat books are the best source of property line designation. Some counties have their plat books available on line for free, some may have them on line and available for a fee. Google Earth-like maps with property lines are an unrealistic expectation, in my mind, unless you transfer the lines from a plat book for specific areas of interest. Property lines change frequently, as you might expect. Suggest that you don't hold your breath.

    Did you see any no trespassing signs?
    Plat books are about the best.

    Your county web site may have a "mapping" section online which will give you exactly what you're looking for - an aerial view with property lines superimposed on it. Kalamazoo County where I'm at does.:coolgleam

    Go to www.earthpoint.us/Townships.aspx and type in your township and range, then you can pull it up on google earth and the section lines, corners, and centroid of the section are highlighted google earth, its the closest thing I've found for that.

    If you go to some county or township websites like St.clair County.org then click on pacel search you will see property lines, you can then overlay images on top of the map.. Yours may have this... Good luck

    I do not know what area you are hunting. In our area there are locals with a bad enough attitude to both post public land and then to try to drive other folks away from it. Often the lines are not clearly marked although the state has been doing more new surveying up here in the last few years. Part of that is a result of the clear cut programs. Without monuments or clear survery markers (and some of the markers are often disputed), field officers can not always be sure where property lines are located. Keep in mind that up here there are thousands of acres of state land for an officer to cover unless there is an effort to form up a team of officers from outside the area for a short term project. Even then such a unit would not be completely familiar with property boundaries.
