On this episode of the Project Upland Podcast, I’m joined by Ann Jandernoa, owner of Northwind Enterprises as well as breeder and trainer of English setters. Ann joins the podcast to talk about the outlook for the 2018 ruffed grouse hunting season as well as her grouse and woodcock hunting habitat maps, including the latest iteration of the Scout-N-Hunt mobile and online mapping application.
During our conversation, Ann and I discuss the nesting and brooding season for ruffed grouse. She shares her personal ideas on what we might find in the woods this fall and suggests a range of options on what grouse hunters can do to improve their odds. We also talk about the history behind the grouse habitat maps Ann produces as well as her latest mobile and online mapping platform, Scout-N-Hunt.
“Scout-N-Hunt is a mapping system that evaluates public hunting land through research and years of experience to determine which lands contain prime habitat for your best hunting options each year.
“It helps hunters understand which habitat is valuable for the best hunting experience because everything we hunt needs specific habitat.
“Hunters can research and locate public land/private land boundaries, key habitat locations and changing prime habitat locations before they step foot in a new area. You can also mark trails or save GPS location points for future hunts.”
About Ann Jandernoa:
“Ann’s vision from the beginning has been to grow Northwind Enterprises LLC based on her extensive knowledge of forestry, GIS, various mapping software programs, interpretation of aerial photography and satellite imagery, and experiences in being a hunter all her life, into a business that can provide the hunting enthusiast with the information, education and services that will make his/her hunting experiences as enjoyable and productive as possible.”
