Bird's eye view scouting.
« on: February 07, 2014, 11:21:32 PM »
I often look at air images of hunting and fishing areas.  Sometimes I see patterns or funnels or areas where I think there might be a good hunting opportunity. 

Next step will be to go out for a walk-about and look for sign and maybe set out some trail cameras.

Here is an air image of an area I have scouted and hunted.  Just for fun, where would you go to look for sign on the ground and possible hunting locations? (wind normally out of the west or north-west)

P.S. 

I did get a picture of an old pot bellied, sway backed buck here.  And a couple of younger bucks near by.

I use google maps extensively for hunting and fishing. It's very handy for fishing as well for picking out deep drop offs and ledges in lakes a person is unfamiliar with. One of the best tools for locating access into new areas.
