There are many out there and they all have different quality photos in different areas for some reason. I use google earth, the MN one (someone will chime in with the right name) and I found the Microsoft one on the Ducks Unlimited website. The DU one was the best for the area I hunt. Its under "migration map".

I just go to weather.com and go to the radar interactive map. You can zoom in pretty well and get a good idea where some pinch points are. It's the same as the DU migration map.

I use google earth for scouting out grouse spots. After a while i can tell ages and kinds of trees from the color scheme compared to driving there in real life. It works out pretty good to find some new starting points on my hunt for them. The images are not that recent though so might try to find a new one sometime. topo dot com looks like it could be pretty good.

You can go through a lot of work and get a free GIS app like Tatuk off the web, then download free FSA photos (mosaic) off the USDA Gateway. These will vary from 1-3meter resolution. I see you are in MI, a guy I work with is from there and has done this for the Houghton area. Time consuming to download all the app's, but definitely worth it.

Google earth is probably the best, and its easy, but you can get better resolution with other programs.

You have to pay if you want the printed map. I right-click and save as, from that point you can pretty much do whatever you want with it.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
