Try Microsoft's Live Local site. Not only does it do maps and directions, but aerial photography as well. And, if you are in an area that has the detail (Like Minneapolis/St. Paul) you can switch to the "Bird's Eye View" for a REALLY close up shot!

how close can you zoom in? the areas im interrested in in western minnesota dont have near enough the resolution im looking for on google earth. i guess i will have to crack a beer, sit my butt back down and check this out tonight.

well the plus side is that live local offers better resolution when zooming way in, but unfortunately its done through the use of outdated aerial photos that are at least 6 years old. i guess im going to have to pay to find what im looking for.

Yeah, unfortunately, it depends on the area. Check out the detail in the twin cities area. Its amazing. If you want newer high quality aerial images check out the site of MN LMIC data, alot of it is from the last 3 years. Let me know if you cant find it I will get you the address.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
