    Anyone else?

    Anyone else spending an unhealthy amount of time staring longingly at your hunt area on Google Earth? I'm pretty sure my area is burned into my retinas.... And my computer monitor.

    Come on September!

    +1 I was just thinking the same thing. Figured out some pretty cool features, been tracing my pack in and hunt plans by distance, pretty damn cool if you ask me.

    I know that I am! I am going to know every rock and tree and waterhole that is in my unit. I have already planned my first day out, now if only it goes the way I want it to!

    Nope. I know exactly where I will be come daylight on opening morning. Been hunting the same wilderness area since 1960 and I know where the bucks will be. If I were going to a new area, I'd be doing exactly the same thing you are doing.

    Nope, me neither, I was sneaking into Colorado cowboys gear and attaching a GPS tracker for educational purposes! LoLol seriously though, I know what you mean. A great way to waste time. You know they call it the fantasy escape method of stress handling. Haha.

    I dont for the area I normally hunt but like to look at new areas on the GSI sites. You can zoom in closer on the state GSI sites. Give them a try.

    I need to get the "mountain north" card for my garmin. I don't see enough value in getting just the state cards. I hope i don't regret that choice.

    I also can print in 11x17 color at my office to get some supersize of some strategic areas.

    I am currently busting my ass to get the siding on my house. Then i can sit in front of the laptop every night and study.

    I have the Montana Card from http://www.huntinggpsmaps.com/ in my GP62s. Pretty neat deal with the card in. Shows all the species, boundaries, topo, land owners ETC. I also have the satellite view downloaded on a card from the base-camp software.

    Oh man, good luck with that. I just finished helping my brother put smart siding on his duplex.. HOT! I'm just getting into a kitchen and bath renovation, with 50 days until season, I don't plan on messing around with this reno!
