If you are wondering what the GAP stewardship program is you can read about it here at it officaial web site. The National Biological Information Infrastructure (www.nbii.gov) website is part of the United States Geological Survey. To findout what this program was took a large amount of digging when I first ran across GAP stewardship land so hopefully the above links will help others out when searching for what this program is. There are also private lands which are part of the GAP stewardship program that I chose not to include on this map as I do not know if they are open to hunting or not.
As always know where you are hunting as not all public land is open to hunting or to hunting of specific species. The above map is meant to provide you with additional information on areas that may be possible hunting locations.
