Database to Electronically Post Private Land Available


The 2021 state legislature passed a bill to allow electronic posting of private land, giving landowners another option for posting private property. This online database system is available to enroll lands, with the law going into effect Aug. 1, 2021.

In addition to current posting laws allowing landowners to post lands with physical signs, electronic posting adds the option to digitally post land. The digital posting system is linked to land descriptions based on county tax parcel information.

Landowners interested in posting electronically for the 2021-22 hunting season can log into My Account on the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website, The deadline for landowners to digitally post land is July 15, which is necessary to make the map information available prior to the early Canada goose hunting opportunities in mid-August.

Landowners new to the site will need to create a profile, while others who have previously purchased a hunting or fishing license can proceed to the Land Parcel section at the bottom of the page.

The Game and Fish website has complete instructions for landowners to follow, along with frequently asked questions for both landowners and hunters.
