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side is that live local offers better resolution when zooming way in, but unfortunately its done through the use of outdated aerial photos that are at least 6 years old.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.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
