Truth From The Stand Podcast #11: Using Maps To Create Better Hunting Strategies w/Ben Harshyne Of HUNTERRA

Today on the show Phil and I are joined by Ben Harshyne, a fellow whitetail addict, native PA fella, and CEO of HUNTERRA Maps. Ben is a map guru who owns and operates the premier hunting and land management mapping company in the industry.  Today Ben will share how maps can help identify key land features before putting boots on the ground, and help take your hunting strategies to the next level.

I’ve been looking forward to talking with Ben for a while. This year I’ve been more focused on my map studies in preparation for my current Ohio hunt. Ben shares a ton on knowledge regarding maps, how to identify land features, how deer use these land features and overall whitetail strategies. I hope you all enjoy the conversation as much as phil and I did.
