Oh I was on Google Earth not Google Maps, now does anyone ever recall a member posting a pic of their hunting area by Google but showing labels of corn/soybean fields, white oaks, creeks and stuff. I think it was done using the "paint program".

I think EDT may have done something like that. My memory is not perfect though!

TG, are you saving the image as a bitmap and then using paint to mark it?

I use Google Earth and set it to my location and go to "File"---"Save"---"Save Image" then type in the name you wish to give the map and save it. With my PC it is saved under "documents". I click on "documents" and find the map file name and click-drag it to "pictures". Then go to "paint" and click "File"---"Open" which takes me to "pictures" where I am able to load any pic from the pictures category and paint away. When I finished painting I save the new painted pic and then transfer it to Photobucket and then proceed to put it into the forums like I normally would any pic......I went step by step in describing this and I am very sure that it is to the smallest detail.

Thanks TG, Later on I'll give it a try, I can see where this is going to be helpful to be able to print out the pics to coordinate hunts while hunting with friends.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
