GPS for the Hunter
- Genre: Special Interest-Instructional
- Release Date: 9/16/2008
For Both New & Experienced Hunters. Improve your hunting skills! Since handheld GPS receivers are made for a variety of outdoors uses, manufacturer's operation manuals are not provided specifically for hunting applications. This program focuses entirely on their use and benefits for hunting and hunting safety purposes. Being able to always find a vehicle or campsite or being able to mark the location of a duck blind or tree stand and return to it, even in the dark without ever worrying about getting lost is a huge safety bonus for hunters. You'll learn what GPS is, how it works and what it can do for hunters. Since there is a long list of features and functions available for the numerous makes and models of GPS receivers, the program tells hunters what they should look for in a receiver and how to set it up for hunting use including: Mark and save locations in memory * Form and follow routes even to avoid obstructions like ponds * Determine exact distances and time to travel from point to point * Using routes with topo maps and elevation profiles * Marking and backing trails for later use * How to plan an entire hunting trip on a PC and download the waypoints and routes to their receiver for later use * How auto routing software works * How to obtain sunrise and sunset times for any date at any location * How to keep track of hunting dogs with GPS. Hunters that already have a GPS can learn GPS tips and tricks to improve their skills or that they need to upgrade their receiver to get better reception under heavy tree cover or to add detailed mapping. Some may want to be able to wirelessly share their location with others so that members of a hunting party know where everyone else is. Those that have never used a GPS should be certain to view this program prior to purchasing one. It could prevent them from wasting money on features and functions they don't need, yet ensure they had the ones that are necessary for their particular hunting applications.
