Rhode Island's Department of Environmental Management provides a hunting atlas that marks important hunting regions. Clicking on the marked regions brings up more detailed regional maps that distinguish between state land, special hunting areas, and management areas.

The regional maps also provide topographical information. The state of Rhode Island maintains this resource in hopes of providing a general reference for hunter and sportsmen.

2. Hunting Regulations PDF

The state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations Department of Environmental Management Division of Fish and Wildlife publishes a PDF of Rhode Island hunting regulations for each season.

The online booklet provides definitions, rules and regulations, and information about hunting seasons for various species. It sets bag limits and possession regulations, and seeks to regulate hunting in Rhode Island in an organized fashion.

4. HUNT App: Public/Private Land Ownership GPS Map

The free hunting app uses GPS information to allow hunters to see their exact location in relation to public and private land boundaries. Basemaps provide topography, road, and water maps.
