    are there any good satellite map sites. google earth photos are 5 years old for the areas i hunt. hopeing that there are good sites possibly even real time that dont cost an arm and a leg, but i will settle for recent imagery. 5 years old is worthless in the forrest

    Bing maps seems pretty good and seem better than Google maps. Google earth is ok but the 29.95 version lacks resolution.

    USGS topo store has new quad maps that incorporate satellite imagery. You can download their maps in .pdf format. You can also go to TerraGo Technologies and download a free tool bar that enables you to turn on and off different layers of the map, measure distances, mark bearings, view coordinates, etc.
