State Interactive Maps Part I

Like most hunters, I like scouring maps for new places to hunt. Some years ago I made the move outside of my home state, and while it took some time, I eventually learned the lay of the land.  I did that through some pretty intense cyber scouting and with some good old fashioned hiking when the weather was warm.  I use maps during the off-season to identify new places to check out, and establish a travel radius from my house for places that I can go to on a weeknight or on a weekend, or further if I can find somewhere else to stay.  Inside of those bubbles I then think of what game I’m going to hunt.  Narrow the list of properties down based on features you want.  This year I really wanted to learn how to effectively hunt swamps, which is something I’d never done back home.  So I looked for properties near the water that I could do a half day hunt in, commutable from my house within reason.  I found three properties near me that I could practice hunting for an elusive swamp donkey.  Alas, I didn’t tag one, but it was through research that I found several new spits of property to hunt, fish, and go raspberrying in.

I’m slowly going through the states and compiling the information.  Once I’ve got all 50 there’ll be a separate page here on the website you can use as reference for your scouting or pipedreaming needs.  Below is the data I could find Alabama to Iowa.  Enjoy!
