Spatial Analysis, Scouting, Maps and The Draw

Born and raised in North Dakota, my move to the West was one of shock and awe. Growing up, with hunting in my blood, the mountains offered a new chance to explore a vastness that the Midwest can't fulfill. Through these early adventures and needing to learn a completely new application structure, sprang DIY Hunting Maps. What started as a simple map company, has blossomed into something so much more. Maps aren't the only things needed to hunt, in fact, maps aren't even close to what you need to get started hunting the west. This is where DIYHuntingMaps.com was born. A website to help you find and plan a hunt, because hunting starts with drawing a tag. It's from building these systems and products that have made me into an expert on everything from the draw process, analyzing patterns in draw stats to the core of the company, reading, interpreting and scouting with maps.
