As the years go by I have more and more trouble remembering all the locations where I have harvested deer. Remembering these locations is an important part of planning my hunt each year. Being a big fan of Google Maps, which has map view and satellite view, I began looking for a place online where I could mark on a map these locations so I would have a reference point. Not finding anything I decided to pull together a website with this function. I am no webmaster so this site is very basic and crude, but it does the job and I think the idea has potential. I am looking for feedback from others to see what they think. The page is deermaps.com.
Thanks,
Nate

I have the Droid2 from Verizon Wireless, There is an application called My Tracks that I use. It allows you to record where you go via GPS/Satellite. It allows you to flag locations, ie., trails, stand locations, ect. I have used the crap out of it this year and it is very helpfull. Not sure but I would assume that some of the other "smartphones" have this app as well.

It also allows you to pull up your recorded tracks and then shows ur location in relation to your tracking.

Definitely recommend it for any of you who might have a Droid.

Have you checked out ScoutLookWeather.com? It gives all of the weather data needed for hunting, also a cool feature called ScentCone which lets you plot your tree stands to see how the wind will carry your scent.

su106,
Thanks for checking out the site. I agree with your concern about inadvertantly sharing hot spots. Ideally there should be public "pins" in the Google map interface and then "private" pins that can only be seen when someone logs in to their account.

Joe7137,
I have an android phone as well and will be trying out the My Tracks app. I like the idea of keeping these records and also having the ability to share it (certain places only) with others.

Tator,
Thanks for trying out the site. Sometimes it takes a while for the "pins" to show up on the bottom map. I believe the three "pins" you placed are now showing up on the webpage. If I can get this site refined a little one thing I will do is have the map update instantly.
