 I have been using satellite imagery for hunting and fishing  for many years and find them incredibly handy especially when scouting out new terrain.  These pictures are of my number one favorite turkey hunting spot, I have shot a truckload of turkeys out of the field,  along with various other game animals.

 The first/second picture the little red X marks where we sit in the tree line.

 The third picture the red X marks a game crossing trail where everything from turkeys to moose cross the fields and enter into an old logging road inside the wood line.  Perfect place to set up for an ambush. Place is crawling with bears!

I also have been using satellite photos for a good number of years. They can show things that can't be seen otherwise and are very useful. You do need to get boots on the ground to check the details, as not everything shows up in photos. Have seen areas that looked good, but didn't pan out as expected. Still a good tool.

WOW you could walk all over southeastern Arizona and not see a tenth of that many trees.  So tell me how do you download satellite photos?

nastygunz:
Theres a few, like google earth, I use this one, just type in the location. If you scroll in close you can see peoples cars, porches, etc.  as far as trees that is known as the Connecticut River Valley with a lot of big farmlands. Get out of the valley and it's almost 100% trees with no fields at all.  :biggrin:

I have been using onX Hunt app on my phone for a few years now. I originally got it to see approximate property lines when I worked for the power company. That way if I had a proposed route for a power line, I could get a feel for who owned what property. I still pay the $29/year just to have it because it is so handy.

Here is one of my properties. The red Xs are actual corners compared to the lines on the map. Close enough. It also has acreages off a little too. It shows my plot being 81 acres but it was surveyed at just a smidgen over 100 acres.
