Hunting Maps using Color Infrared Imagery
Ever wonder how deer and turkeys navigate in thick areas of rhododendron and mountain laurel? Discerning their patterns in this thick habitat is a difficult proposition for even the most experienced sportsmen. Hunters have learned that deer travel natural barriers to and from bedding areas. Natural funnels on the edge of these thickets are a buck’s number one travel route. With our National Forest maps you can now zoom right in on their highways.
Up-Close Outfitters has developed color infrared maps
to assist hunters in locating deer and turkey in the most challenging mountain landscapes. Our maps combine new and old false color infrared imagery to display the vegetation thickness and physical features of mountain terrain.
This technology records open hardwoods and thick vegetation at different wave lengths. Our maps display thick vegetation in dark red and open hardwoods in a light brown. Our maps make scouting and traveling through the vast National Forests much easier. Use these maps to find wildlife funnels, bedding areas, white pine stands, and hardwood stands in seconds. We can also combine these maps with our hill-shade / slope hybrid maps to create the perfect do-it-yourself guide for pre-season scouting.
Each map is fully integrated with GPS grids for easy coordinate uploads to your handheld GPS device. They also include other handy features for ground navigation, such as National Forest trails, roads, and an accurate scale bar to help plan distances covered per hunt. All federal and state assigned travel routes are named and labeled for easy reference to National Forest signs. All serious outdoorsmen know the importance of maps for preseason scouting
. We strongly believe our maps are the best on the market.
Our maps are divided into ideal sized blocks of National Forest covering anywhere from 3-8 square miles of terrain. Zoom in to pinpoint turkey flocks or traveling routes for deer. These hunting maps are specifically printed to withstand what ever Mother Nature throws at you. They are fully water-proof and printed on a Tyvek-like synthetic paper, which is extremely durable. Sportsmen can fold them up into a 9” by 4” size that fits easily into a hunting vest.
