    Default Went out today, Saw a few tracks, still lost

    Well Went out to the Edge of 14 and in 16 a little bit today, saw a few tracks nothing cosmic but it was around what seemed to be muskeg and a few "Private Property" Signs. When I got out to where I figured was out a ways, BOOM Cabin...So.......looking for some direction willing to put in the time with a help in the right direction, area or even GPS Coord.

    Archer shoot me a email not many people will give out their "honey hole" info but I can help guide you into a few areas that are "roads less traveled" (at least thats what I have been told). I have some GPS cords for my alternate area's I was planning on hunting but after careful review of my current stand locations I may be able to work something out with ya

    Google Earth will help if the location your hunting has maps you can read that are not blurry.

    Yeah I pulled up Google earth and a topo program I have had for a while, after a few looks I think I may have a better working idea of what to look for. NHRA I will shoot you an email tonight. Thanks for the time fellers.

    Fig,

    Good news. I posted a .kmz file on here a few weeks ago that has point locations for all the private parcels in the Mat-Su Borough. I'll attach it again for you because I'm a nice guy. All you have to do is...
    1. Launch Google Earth
    2. Click File -> Open
    3. Select the file I'm providing.
    (Beforehand, you'll need to unzip the file).

    parcelpt_private.zip

    I've been trying to get a smaller version of the polygon layer the borough puts out, but so far it's been too large to attach on here. Remember, each dot corresponds to a tract. It may or may not be the center, and there are definitely no lines for you to follow. It will just be a good generalization of where private property exists.
