PLOTS VIEWER. For those late season hunts, find those remote public lands and federal refuges that have been opened up to late season hunting with the NDG&F PLOTS Viewer. You can also download the maps for your GPS to keep tabs while on the road and headed to your destination.
GOOGLE IT. Google maps also help to get your bearings and programs like Google Maps and Google Earth for your laptop and phone will provide recent maps of the landscape and directions on how to get back.
PRIVACY SETTINGS. Late season is a good time to make contact with landowners, as the rush of deer season is in the rear-view mirror. Check online for county maps, parcel viewers and platbooks with landowner contact information to facilitate successful adventures this time of year.
