How many times have you driven by a piece of property that looks like it is perfect habitat for hunting? Chances are it has happened many times. All too often hunters will never pursue gaining permission to hunt these areas simply because they do not know how to go about finding who owns the property. A simple phone call to the county Tax Assessor’s office is a great place to start.
In the past, to find out who owned a piece of property required going down to the county Tax Assessor’s office and digging through books of maps. Many counties now have tax maps online that are easily accessible. These maps are a great place to look for information about who owns the property. Many times they list the owner’s name, address and phone number. It may take a little digging, and a little begging, to be granted permission to hunt a piece of property. But it will be worth it when you can hunt the area you have dreamed of for years.
