SCOUT TO HUNT

It's not a new revelation that every season is different from the previous. Game move, units change and nature is clever. It's a great undertaking to know where to focus your research before you put-in and where to start your scouting after you get tags when there's so much country and so many units to cover. Especially, ones that hold the monster bucks and giant bulls and other big game and delicious clean meat we all work so hard to find. Having hard-data you can see as proof that there's desirable game to be scouted in a particular area is an invaluable asset to making decisions that put you in the right direction from the start.

 

The value of unit research with Scout to Hunt

For anyone hunting public land, your tool belt won’t be complete without Scout to Hunt. They have ushered in a new era of intelligent unit research with up-to-date unit data that you are able to analyze and incorporate into your arsenal of research and scouting strategy year-round. You’ll be fully equipped to tackle the obstacles that hold you back from your desired potential.

Scout to Hunt finds that having tangible, hard-data you can actually see for yourself to be essential in producing optimal planning and preparation – before, during and after the season. This applies in many ways, which is beneficial in meeting the unique demands of different types of hunters. As a multi-faceted platform with varying and tailored applications, you're guaranteed to find Scout to Hunt as a necessary tool—whatever your situation may be.

Members of Scout to Hunt can explore the current extensive coverage that consists of Utah, Eastern Nevada and the Northern Arizona (with current expansion in progress into more country and states). Inside the platform, you can view the tremendous amount of diverse locations where game have been spotted through a private network of expertly operated trail cameras. The spotted locations are geotagged on highly-detailed, varied maps along with the dated image itself and other corresponding unit information and details within the color-coded, state-sourced unit boundaries of each state. All easily viewed on both a web and mobile app map-based platform.

 

Improvement for the individual hunter

The geotagged images of game that have been spotted provide a means of validating information, as you're able to see for yourself what type of game units currently hold, not just what people speculate or say about the units’ status. This provides concrete unit data you can incorporate into your planning. It's also a means of maximizing limited time and resources in order to prepare for effective scouting and boots on the ground efforts. You can familiarize yourself with new terrain and expand your options to new units that may have been previously unreachable due to many of the limitations, obstacles and constraints, such as distance and costs, that come with venturing out to new territory.

Overall, it's an intelligent tool that you can utilize to improve your research through your own efforts, analysis and planning. All of which is derived from up-to-date unit data you can see, so you're able to start your research in the right direction – and continue all-year long.

Whether it's for this season or preparing for the next, find out how you can apply it to your strategy at Scouttohunt.com.

2017 Honda Pioneer 1000 LE Review

Review by Ben Hill, of Team Hunting Illustrated

 

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to the Texas Hill country to spend a few days with Honda Motorsports at the amazing, 18,000-acre Ox Ranch near Uvalde, TX.  Amidst the backdrop of rugged terrain and exotic safari animals, the 2017 Honda Pioneer 1000 LE (Limited Edition) was unleashed.  I am the first to confess that I am not an expert when interjecting myself in the side-by-side conversation.  However, my unbiased and innocent view of side-by-side machines was quickly slanted towards RED. 

At first glance, the Pioneer 1000 LE easily passed the eye (candy) test.  The typical Honda Red was replaced with a simple yet sexy matte grey metallic finish wrapped in a beefy black bumper and cage protection.  The only hint of red was more of a bold statement, featuring the new FOX QS3 adjustable shocks and A-arms.   Last but not least, the Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 rubber hit the road on a clean set of 14” aluminum rims.
