    Default Flight Costs

    Hi Everyone,

    I was advised by an experienced hunter that I might want to fly over the area I'm thinking of hunting just to get a good idea what the lay of the land is. Being I have never availed myself of a flight like that, I am wondering what kind of cost I should be looking at. I have no idea what is the "going" cost of a fly over of, for instance, the Little Su, area. Just a ballpark so I don't get taken would be great.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    A quick search on the web will help. Here's a few I turned up.

    I'm sure these guys would do a custom trip.

    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Yes, Google Earth is a great tool to study terrain with. I use it often and repeatedly to study an area.

    Thumbs up another vote for google earth

    I've been "scouting" the lay of the land for a few months now. Just remember to consider the time of the year the shots were taken. For instance, the hunt area I am looking over was taken at the end of July, a month before my hunt. If they had been taken in April, it might be a whole different story.

    My dad used to use terraflyer or something like that on the web as well, before google earth came along...maybe they are one in the same now???
