Satellite Bucks: Making the Most of Your GPS (feature)

October 2008 Feature Article:

Satellite Bucks: Making the Most of Your GPS

Not that long ago, it would take the average hunter a few seasons to truly learn the ins and outs of a new area. Typically, he would gain knowledge of the local topography bit-by-bit, mostly by hunting near obvious landmarks such as watercourses, trails, ridgelines, meadows, and clear cuts. And, for a while, this would work just fine.

But, eventually, that hunter would have cause to leave those familiar places and explore. Then, even with map and compass in hand, there would be times when his exact location was a best-guess situation. Needless to say, this is not a desirable thing, especially after discovering a truly great spot that you want to return to.
