PostSubject: My Colorado Hunting Area   August 12th 2011, 11:34 pm

Heres some shots off my new map software. Once i get my GPS i will upload my area into it and really have fun this season!

There are a lot of views, these are zoomed in at various percentages. I prefer the Topo so i can see the kind of terrain i will be getting into and to find some new flat areas to try out for hunting.

The Green area is National Forest, Yellow is BLM and white is private land. The private land has the owners names listed on it like i was saying before in an earlier post.


Zoomed in a bit more.


Now if you look, you will see a dotted red Y. Thats the are we camp near and then take the Pole creek trail up to a few areas where we see animals now and then. Not a great area but we certainly have had our chances over the years. To date we've only taken one animal out of the area and that was in 2004 - 05?


I'll know for certain where i am at on the map once the GPS comes in and i go scout some new areas before my hunt. Cutting it close for scouting but i am just pressed for time lately. Even have to get the ATV's all tuned up and figure out what else we need. I will be the only one hunting Colorado.

If you stop your mouse pointer on the map, will it tell you somewhere what the Lat./Long. coordinates are Question (I'm asuming it does)

Marty, myself and computers are like water and oil. I think my son downloaded the software to the computer then onto our GPs. We keep track of all our hotspots from the fishing trip. Then at home we pull up the lat. & long. and we can see on the larger screen where we were, and how it compared to other years.

yep i down loaded it off the net as well after emailing the company to test/review it. A bit over 400mb for the Colorado map and almost 400mb for the new mexico map. It has a lot of stuff you can do with it but i haven't learned all of that yet. All i basically need it my area i am hunting in and then i will be good to go and find some new sweet spots.

Yes you can put your mouse cursor over a certain spot and it will show you how high you are.

confused ???"How high you are" ??? confused Unless you're growing some wacky-tobaccy out there Laughing , I take that to mean an "elevation" reading(usually based on some reference datum plane such as N.G.V.D.), and not the specific lat./long coordinates. In order to be useful this mapping software needs to go beyond just copying assessor's maps/info.

scratch Perhaps I should frame my question differently. Let's say you have you this new map software loaded on your computer, and are looking at the private property boundary near the adjacent public area you want to hunt. Q: Can you place your mouse pointer on the private property boundary line itself, and will it then give you ability to read the lat./long. coordinates at that point on the boundary line Question

I figured it was there somewhere. Now you got my attention. That's a really nice feature to have on the map software. That would allow you to take specific coordinate points off the map software, and plot them on GOOGLE EARTH for an aeriel view perspective as well.

p.s.

FG, you should be getting the GARMIN later this week, so watch out for the Priority Mail truck.

I have an old GPS Gammon unit, still can receive the new maps from them, works so that's good enough. If I got a new one some jerk would steal it has been my experience as I have left the truck sit for as long as a week in this area when weather won't permit you to go down safely - snow and ice can really be a problem in the Estes Park CO area. Years shown are when we filled our muzzle loading permits for elk.
