Using the AHRS Deer Hunting Location Viewer

 

Deer Hunting Location Viewer The Deer Hunting Location Viewer can be used to locate and identify your deer hunting spot to obtain harvest location information (DMZ, Unit, County, Township). This data is requested when reporting deer via the Division's Automated Harvest Report System. The map can also be used to identify properties that may be open for deer hunting.

NOTE: The viewer map is for reference only. Not all state, county, municipal and federally-owned open space is open for hunting. Consult the property owner/manager for any restrictions. Federal and municipal open space is not identified on the map.

USING THE VIEWER

The Basics:

  • Zoom in (double-click, use the mouse wheel or click the (+) button in upper left corner)
  • Click, hold and drag to center your location on map, zoom in more if necessary.
  • A single click on the map pinpoints your hunting location.
  • A box with your location information will appear with the Deer Management Unit number, County and Township information, or Deer Management Zone information, depending on the level of zoom. Clicking the arrow in the box will advance to the next box of location information.
