BLM Land Access, Mining Claims, Etc.

Recommended Posts

That's one problem when dealing with government bureaucrats - so few people actually understand the big picture.  They may sometimes give you technically accurate - but wholly useless - information, and other times they are just plain uninformed and wrong. 

That, and you don't want to get shot.

Well this has turned interesting as my last visit in April dealt with BLM in Eastern Washington.  Decided to give the new knees a work out and did some hiking to get a good view on a couple of photos.  Needless to say, no signs posted, but i got investigated within minutes!  I had little problem explaining the situation when they saw a camera hanging around the neck, instead of a gun hanging from the shoulder! But I'm also in the vote, I'd love to go to the County Sheriff's office, but I'm not convinced I would be treated fairly with the information I'd be seeking....what IS private, and what IS BLM....  In the meantime, the visit was great...however, I never do get all the items crossed off the list!  Both shots are taken east of Sprague Washington; you can BARELY make out Steptoe Butte in the distance....Ma Nature wasn't exactly stellar...what else is new...

What *is* private and what *is* public/BLM is a matter of public record, available at the relevant county recorder's office.  I mean, it's not like there's a conspiracy to secretly alter parcel/APN information in the various county offices.  Finding the information might be a challenge, since the PLSS is such an arcane and difficult system to work with at times, but the information is there.  It's more a question of how much time you want to put into the research.

      I recently purchased this app with the BLM land overlays, and I think it's worth the money! Never again will you have to wonder where the BLM Boundaries are when out exploring. If you haven't checked this out, it's definitely worth checking out.
