Plat Book a Useful Tool for Hunters, Outdoorsmen


November 7, 2019

With the arrival of archery season and the approach of rifle season, many people will be heading out to enjoy nature in the woods of Pennsylvania with hopes of bagging a nice buck.

Hunting public property provides many opportunities for you to hunt and to find your own hot spot. The greatest challenge is to find land not being utilized by other hunters. Hunting private properties is another option but usually you need to secure permission from the landowner. Land ownership/public land access can provide an amazing perspective of your hunting location.

For those who like to hike on the weekends and are looking to find new places to explore, it is good to know whose land you may want to hike on and obtain permission before beginning your walk.

Finding out who owns a certain tract of land can be solved very simply with the use of a plat book. A plat book is a public record of maps of subdivided land, showing the division of the land into blocks, lots, and parcels, and indicating the dimensions of individual parcels.

Copies of the most recent 2016 Blair-Huntingdon Counties Plat Book are now on sale in the extension office, located at Martinsburg Airport.

For more information on securing a 2016 Blair-Huntingdon Counties Plat Book, call the Penn State Extension Office at (814) 940-5989 or stop by the office today.
