Looking for new places to hunt?

I thought this was a pretty unique tool. You type in your address and it shows you just about every place you can reach within a certain time. So say that I am willing to thoroughly scout and hunt any place within an hour of my house, this shows all those places. I was somewhat surprised at some of the places I could get to within an hour of my house.

Oh make sure you use the Very Accurate (Slow) setting on the map tool.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm going to have to try this when I get home. Not working on my current company-mandated internet browser (old IE)

Yeah it was a bit eye opening for me since i have only lived in this area for a couple yrs. There are places that in the back of my head i would have guessed it would take longer to get there but the map doesn't lie. I know this will influence my scouting efforts.
