I considering making a move to Maine.

I've done a search on the forum in regards to public lands, and was hoping gain more knowledge from responses on this forum.

I've been the Maine state website, and I find very little land designated as public, I was looking for a map like it's marked out west for BLM, State, or Federal public land. I saw maybe one park and was a bit discouraged.

Is most land access for hunting purposes gained through hunt clubs/leases?

I did see several posts regarding land owned by paper mills and the such, is there a central website that lists this land?

I'm not looking for spoon feeding, but more for you guys to point me in the right direction in researching this.

Welcome to the site autorotate (I want to know the story behind that name - I think)
This link will give you a list of the public land areas, their sizes and locations. At the bottom of the page there is a link that will get you some more info.

JP's advice is good - as always. Most town offices are friendly if you go asking to look at tax maps.
I think anyone should be diligent in making sure they obtain clear title with no encumbrances on a piece of property.
