    Another tool to use for digital scouting would be the interactive GIS maps that most counties have online nowadays. I've found that these seem to have some better details on the road systems in the areas as well as better aerial photography, in most cases, than google earth does.

    I have been using Google Earth and bought "The Chip" from OnXmaps/Hunt GPS maps. The hunt maps have a view I think they call Bird Eye View. You can do your way points/routes, pick an area and over lay satellite view. I print off both satellite and standard maps. We will see how it all works on my first scouting trip in June.l

    Another useful tool with google earth that I use at times is the 'timeline' feature. Some 'time lines' are done during hunting season which can be a little bit better to use for numerous reasons. If it is in winter time less leaves on the trees.
    I've been able to spot everything from people on horses to people actually walking a trail and camps, I just haven't been able to verify any elk yet LOL. (look at shadows too help with identification too)
