    Default Google map tip....

    If you Google map your location, zoom in and right click, you can use the yardage (measure distance) indicator to help you know how far a potential shot will be... or can go back in history to see how far your actual shot was.
    Best of luck to everyone and be safe.

    Cool, I have been able to drop pins in GM and find those locations again. But, I did not know this feature. Thanks

    there's also a really good app called Hunstand where you can create hunting zones, add pins for stand locations, animal sightings, camera locations etc etc etc. It gives you accurate measurements from each location so you can determine the size of the field or clearing you are hunting. It also gives wind direction to help where to setup..it's a great app, I highly recommend it.

    X2 for Hunstand, it's the best app I came across to manage hunting spots. Lots of features, and it works with data off as well.

    i remember when that feature was not available on google maps, you had to use google earth (the downloaded desktop program), it was a bit of a pain, glad its on the main app now. i impressed a few landowners with printed maps covered in dimensions i got from google earth, pretty sure i freaked out some landowners too who weren't familiar with the technology.

    i use scoutlook and ihunter. scoutlook is good for stand management and wind directions(i am still not totally sold), and i hunter for the regs. both you can measure distances.

    keep in mind if you are measuring between two waypoints, each way point could be off (GPS isnt always very precise), and than your yardages may be off. I do use GPS apps to make sure i have a safe distance from buildings and roads though, very good for that (where precision isnt so important).
