Does anyone know how to obtain aerial photos of a specific area? I live in wisconsin if that helps.

Go to goggle maps, type in the address and then click on the sattelite view.  Microsofts Virtual Earth is another good one as well

Ive used terra server usa, mapquest also has good ones just click the aerial photo tab in the corner, and most recently Ive started using Live search maps (this one is 3d and my favorite)

I wanted aerial photos of a specific area of timber company land I hunt in Northwest Wisconsin. I contacted the local airport and they put me in touch with a pilot that does it. For a couple hundred bucks I got exactly what I needed. I met the guy for breakfast, showed him my maps, and he gave me a variety of shots of the land.

the downloads of map from google earth is the cheapest way to go.just need address closeset to your hunting area.i just found a neat way to keep all of your maps in order with field notes included i saw it in the most recent issue north american hunting club they field tested it and it was approved Trophy Tines a deer hunters notebook it has alot of cool features. the web site is not much to look at but the program is.
  www.trophytines.com shipped it right out and it .check it out if u get the chance

Hey rustyk20 does that program come with maps on it or do ya need to download them from other places? and if it does have them how current are they. most places I find don't have any current maps of my area.
