Digital Elk Hunting Hot Spots
Due to popular demand and to better assist you in the field while you are elk hunting, I am making the digital files available for all the elk hunting hot spots within a GMU. These files will be available as ESRI shapefiles to import into Google Earth Pro. Once imported, you can zoom in to an area of interest and print out your own maps. Also, for the technically savvy, you can export a KMZ file of the Hot Spots out of Google Earth Pro then convert to GPX files to upload to a GPS such as Garmin. I do not offer technical support for this option, but if you are interested you can visit gpsbabel or gaiagps for some free downloads and help with this option. These two sites also offer tips for importing the shapefiles into mobile devices. Included with your order are the following files which can also be imported into Google Earth Pro–your GMU Hot Spots, your GMU boundary, and the elk seasonal ranges (summer, winter, and migration) and land ownership files (BLM, USFS, and CPW) for your GMU.
This data is available for $30.
The map and link to a table below shows the GMUs where these files will be available as well as the number of elk hunting hot spots within those GMUs.
Also, as a general rule, I will not sell more than 5 GMUs with Hot Spots to a single person. This is all proprietary information that I have been developing for several years and I will not be offering this data state wide.
