I think your missing the question. Where did you find that aerial & where else do you look at aerials online? There are numerous sites and was just curious how many you have checked out.

Sorry for the mistake, but you may want to try some other sites to try to find better aerials or even aerial photos. I like Google Earth, but they often don't have the best coverage in the area's I look at.

Here are most of the ones I use.

Dan, transfered your pics for potential bedding areas into my Gps and checked them out Sunday.Here is what a I think is his secondary bedding area which is only about 50 yards from the rubs
Image
I did find a few more rubs from him also
Image
Image
Here is his primary bedding area it is a perfect bed for him just not so perfect to hunt ,proably 2oo yards from his staging area but exactly where Dan said it would be .Like i said It was programed into my GPS and about 10 seconds after my proximitry alarm went off he jumped from the bed .
Image
His bed, the ground is pushed back forming a wall behind him
Image
His bed with rub right in bed
Image
His rub in the bed
Image
Another pic of bed and rub
Image
His bed is on a very small island(15'x15') completely surrounded by cattails and water,he has 4 trails leaving his bed and he actually has 3 seperate beds on this island His primary is the one in the pics and another faceing North and another facing West.
