  • During the off season I have been doing some electronic "scouting" as a first step to finding some puplic land squirrel hunting.

    During the off season I have been doing some electronic "scouting" as a first step to finding some puplic land squirrel hunting. I came across, on the game and fish web site, maps for a local WMA. Has anyone had any experience in using maps provided by a game and fish agency? Have you found them to be accurate for your area or lacking? What other sources would you use for maps?

    I used some maps provided by the Ohio dnr. They are sometimes old and not very accurate but they still get you a sense of the terrain so you know what game you'll find there.Other than that scouting in the preseason is the best way to find out about the land.

      I use google earth. On my new dell, i can even put down two points, and it will measure the distance between them. I have found it real handy.

        Good article on pressure testing. It takes about 40 hours to test for one caliber and bullet weight with about 16 types of powder.
