These maps are comparable to the U.S. Geographical Survey's 1:100,000-scale paper maps. You'll see terrain contour, elevation information, shoreline detail, bathymetric contours, hiking and snowmobile trails and more. You can also use MapSource to create routes and waypoints on your PC and transfer them to your GPS.

If you want to scout land without actually seeing the land I would suggest the following.
1 - Check the internet for maps of public land supplied by the state.
2 - Check out online topo sites like mytopo.com and if you want to order topo maps of the area you are going to hunt.
3 - Call up the state's DNR and ask them questions about hunting and public land access. They manage the area and can give you a leg up in contacting helpful land owners or specific areas to hunt.
4 - If the public land is managed by the US forest service or BLM given them a call and see what they can tell you.
Whenever I've called the government about help in pre-scouting land before I arrive they have always been very helpful in giving me contacts and pieces of information to make my time more useful.
Just remember nothing replaces on the ground scouting but preparation neve hurts.
