The Importance of Pre-Hunt Scouting
by BaseMap Staff
BaseMap can help.
Using a few of the more than 700 map layers available through the BaseMap app, hunters can quickly locate game animals’ seasonal ranges, legal season dates, access points to land, game-holding habitat and terrain, and even land owners’ names and contact info for those seeking permission to hunt private lands.
BaseMap utilizes the now familiar Google Maps imagery for mapping. The intuitive interface and detailed images allow hunters to locate and mark areas of interest. From finding watering holes and visible game trails to marking prospective game travel corridors and neighboring food sources, BaseMap is an indispensable tool.
Another useful function of BaseMap is the ability to precisely measure distances between two points or find the acreage of a particular area. Knowing the distance along with the terrain can help better judge travel times from point to point.
Boone and Crockett Records layers.
Hunters looking for a wall hanger can take advantage of the Boone and Crockett Records layer. Once overlaid on the map, simply click each county to display how many B&C trophies have been taken. This layer can quickly narrow down areas that are known to hold larger game.
With innovative advances in technology and information sharing, today’s scouting reaches a new pinnacle and BaseMap brings together critical information to get the most from time spent in the field.
