Up to date air photos

Recommended Posts

My (public) hunting land has changed a lot in the past 2 years with all the Aspen/pouplar logging.

Any ideas how to get an up-to-date photo or satelite image of the area NW of Red Lake?

Has anyone hired a pilot to take photos?

Google Earth's images would be too old to check this out but Microsoft's program I believe is within two years old. There are many sites that offer it including Ducksunlimited and Yellowpages. Just do a search and go to their map area. Then it's easy to zoom in on the area you are looking for and 100% cheaper than paying a pilot. These are what I use for all my areal shots. Some areas have much more detail as far as how far you can zoom than others, usually more urban. I'm sure you won't get to zoom in as far up there but will still give you a good idea if new enough for you.

Google Earth, Terraserver, DNR images, MapsLive, etc are all too old.

How about those guys that go around selling you air photos of your farm?

Counties typically are updating their air photo base every couple of years nowadays, so depending on what county you're in, there might be updated aerial photography through them. Typically, these counties will either re-sell the data, or provide it via online GIS services similar to google earth, mapquest, etc.

The best bet is to check with your county GIS office, which in most counties is a division of environmental services or landuse planning.

If you're in Beltrami County, it looks like they have their own online GIS browser @

Beltrami County GIS site

Select the newest/latest/greatest imagery under "base maps", but remember that you have to zoom in far enough to display this information.

Tons of local resources available nowadays.

Was the Microsoft program too old? I checked and it was dated 2006 and 2007.

weather.com if you zoom in on the radar it goes to 2003? or later air photos, DU's hunting map same thing zoom in and it changes to recent air photos even in Canada, if you have the software DNR's Data Deli and NRCS' Geo Gateway have USDA airphotos I think Geo Gateway has 2006 but you need software like ArcMap or ARCView

I usually access it by going to ducks unlimited website and zooming in on their migration map link.

All sites stated are very good, but the only problem is that most of the images are at least five years old. For any thing newer you usally have to pay.

Thats not true. there are many places to find images that are less than a year or two old that don't require you to pay.

Northstar Mapper is one that has images as new as 2006. Also has older ones going back to 1991.

i've never heard of the one you've posted, but good to know. Yet, all of the ones i've found that had newer images you had to pay. Guess i just had to look harder! But thanks for the link.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
