Between working as a consultant for outfitters and scouting properties for my own hunting endeavors, I can honestly say that nothing helps me locate killer stand sites as much as aerial photos and contour maps. They can tell you so much about a property before one even steps foot on it, minimizing the amount of deer disturbing activity needed to get stands in place. Every bit as importantly, some of the best stands I’ve found were missed while foot scouting, but stick out like a sore thumb on maps and photos. When it comes to producing the best contour overlaid photos, Mapping The Outdoors has the market covered. That’s why I use their products.

At MAN vs. WHITETAIL we feel the number one, and most important, part of hunting is stand placement. We rely heavily on aerial photos to help decide on the perfect set-up to ambush a mature buck. We normally hunt in fairly open farm country, but this past fall picked up a great property in the heavily forested part of Southern Ohio. With only one weekend during the thick mid-summer foliage to set stands, we purchased an aerial photo with topographical overlay from Mapping The Outdoors. Using this great map, and without any scouting, we set three stands…. one on a small pond… one on a ridge bench… and one on a ridge saddle.
Returning in early November to hunt we found all three of these stands to be “Spot On”!!! We filmed over fifty bucks cruising by our locations within easy bow range, and we harvested a great ten point during the hunt. None of this would have been possible without the great maps from Mapping The Outdoors!!!! These maps are the foundation of our success and hunting strategy www.manvswhitetail.com
Mapping The Outdoors will give you up to date aerial photos. You can go online and get some that are going to become pixilated if you try to enlarge them, and you get no contours out of it. Mapping The Outdoors, they make ‘em huge baby!www.archerschoicemedia.com
