I saw bowhuntinsoldier's post about how to set up in his area, and the map links and suggestions. This is something I have been thinking about doing too. After all, there's a LOT of knowledge on this site, and maybe we could use it to gang-up on some of these bucks. How do guys feel about doing more of this? Of course, there's the risk of other folks finding out about your hunting spots to be considered.

All you have to do is go to google earth and type in the nearest town to where you hunt. Then just pan the direction of your hunting area and double click on it to zoom in. You then can save it as a land mark. I use it all the time.

I'm new to the site but not to Google Earth. Is a great tool. Will give you lat. and long. for where you hunt, too. And, just found out yesterday, has a "ruler" so you can measure distances for not only straight lines but for paths so you know how far it is to your stand. Best part is, you can zoom out and check out the surrounding property to yours to find out where the other water supplies are, houses, roads, etc... without having to do a lot of driving or walking! Good luck!

I bat A lot of hunters would want to get deep into the center of this area, I'd personally try to stay on the lower section closer to the water like off of Lake View Rd. but not on the water side, I'd slide in on the forest side but wouldn't venture too deep into the woods.

huntnh, all the spots you're posting are very similar to Vermont woods.
If you're scouting and finding good sign in any area chances are it's probably
a good spot depending on how much those areas are getting pounded by other hunters.
