Bringing the Western hunting community to you.
The Scout To Hunt team has been anxious to get this key layer into your hands. Download the latest update for the Scout To Hunt App to elevate your offline mapping experience.


Elevation Bands

A map is full of critical data that shows us where we need to be to get on an animal or pick up monster sheds. But sometimes, it's difficult to see. The Elevation Bands offline map layer helps make sense of it all. By segmenting filterable elevation ranges, you can take control of your map to see the big picture.



Elevation plays a significant role in finding animals at different times of the year. The Elevation Bands simplify how you determine your target areas to scout and hunt based on the relevant elevations you expect to find the game you're chasing.

More importantly, the Elevation Bands organize your own data. Adding a powerfully visual perspective, patterns and trends of your own Markers and observations from the field stand out with eye-opening insights. Scout To Hunt's Elevation Bands layer brings science and simplicity together to make your decision-making a breeze.

Shed Hunting with Scout To Hunt's Elevation Bands layer
During the winter range months we have found a pattern of mule deer sheds in the 6,000 - 7,500ft (green) range, typically near the edge of the 7,500 - 9,000ft (yellow) range. An interesting pattern to continue to analyze with the Elevation Bands layer



Applying the Elevation Bands Layer

We like to keep things very simple, so you don't waste valuable hunt time trying to figure out how to apply a map layer. We thoughtfully designed the Layer Adjustment button to maintain that simplicity, so you can quickly control and filter the elevation ranges you want or do not want to be displayed on your map without forcing you to leave your map screen.

The Layer Adjustment button appears on the upper left corner of your main map screen only when a modular layer, such as the Elevation Bands or UnPaved layers, is toggled on from the Layers Menu. If all modular-type layers are toggled off from the Layers Menu, the Layer Adjustment button will  automatically be removed from your map screen to keep visual interference to a minimum.





Selecting Elevation Ranges

With the adjustment menu, you can choose which ranges you want to see on the map to align with your scouting and hunting goals.

For example, you can apply the 6,000 - 7,500 ft (green) and the 7,500 - 9,000 ft (yellow) ranges to highlight potential areas to cover for antler sheds during shed season.
