    Anyone using topo software. I was thinking of buying a software package but not sure which one. I'd like to find one that is user friendly and really just want to have it to print out topos. I am looking for feedback from someone familiar with them. Pros Cons etc.. I figure since Topos run about 10 bucks a piece the price of the software would pay for itself after printing a few maps. I'd be interested in 1 that covers the eastern US. I have heard the National Geographics one for individual States is a good one, but I hunt several different States.

    I use Delorme Topo USA..its awesome Very powerfull and user friendly; you can even purchase sat imagery to go over top or your topos.

    Only con I have with it is that you cannnot upload the topos to your GPS..atleast not with my version 5.0.

    I have the topo info on a san disk that gets placed into my GPS. I like it because when I still hunt, I cover alot of terrain in mountainous areas and the GPS helps me with elevation changes, etc. I like to hunt over the shelves of the hills.

    Plus, you can right info down on deer sign, etc if you want to hunt the spot a couple of times.

    Google earth is awesome. I use it to scout out new spots all the time. It also has a tool that can measure distances. Here is an example where this is very useful- my friend says that I can hunt in his backyard, so I'll google earth his address and find out if any of the neighbors are within 150 yards from his backyard. If the neighbors are too close, I can get permission to hunt their property just in case the prime spot falls with 150 yards from their home.

    Here is a topo pic of Black River from Google maps. I have placed a red marker on my favorite hole at Flanders Valley Golf course. Some of the hold over Pheasants make their way to the golf course during the summer and can be found cackling away on that hole (#10 red-gold).

    That is an aerial, not a topo.
