GPS for Hunting                

How to Hunt with GPS click here:   Smart hunters have been using topographic maps for years to predict the positions of game animals.


Using a GPS for hunting trips:
   

  • allows you to preplan your routes
  • mark the boundaries on the PC and upload to your PDA or handheld GPS
  • mark ranger stations
  • mark power stations, wires, hazards,
  • water access for yourself or for the game you are hunting
  • in the field create a breadcrumb trail to follow back
  • mark good points in the field in real time for future reference  

If you are hunting in pairs or are part of a larger group, note the importance of knowing where you are and where your team members are.  GARMIN has introduced the RINO, which allows to communicate with your fellow gamesman and see your position as well as theirs in the field.   GPS works to enhance your experience and improve safety.
