do I print a map?
There are several ways to print a map in GoHunt.
PRE-GENERATED PDF MAPS
maps in Adobe PDF format are available for Game Management
Units, Deer Areas, Elk Areas, and Wildlife
Areas. Accessing these maps requires that you have Adobe’s
Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. The PDFs can be
accessed from the GoHunt startup page (https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/gohunt/gohuntJSP/startup.jsp)
under the area labeled “Download a MapFile in PDF
For Step 1, you select an area type that you are interested
in from the pull down menu by ‘clicking’ on
example you might select ‘Game Management Unit’.
The application will then present another list from which
you can select the specific area of interest, for example ‘101
Sherman’ continuing with the Game Management Unit example.
next step is to click on ‘Go!'
If you accept
the terms of the disclaimer, you will see a screen that
describes the PDFs that can be downloaded.
If you click ‘Open PDF’ on this screen,
the map will open using Acobe Acrobat Reader. From this point,
can print the map or save it to your own computer for later
size of the PDF is displayed in the lower left of the window.
The GMU and Wildlife Area Maps are quite large, take a
significant amount of time to
download on slower internet connections, and cannot be printed
very well on small home/office type printers. The black and
white GMU maps can be copied to CD and taken to a commercial
copy center, such as Kinko’s, for printing at a modest
fee. In contrast the Deer and Elk Area Maps are fairly small
and download relatively quickly. They can be printed on most
home/office type color printers.
PRINTING MAPS FROM GOHUNT
You can print
a map directly from GoHunt using the ‘Print
Map’ tool which is located on the Tools Menu.
When you select the tool, you will have the option of printing
the map with the following options:
This option, prints a map that includes the geographic extent
shown on the screen. To do this, GoHunt may have to reduce
the scale of the output map in order to fit everything
on the page.
This option prints a map that is fairly close to the same
map scale as the screen. This option may result in some
features along the edge of the map on the screen to be
eliminated on the output map.
The next choice is to indicate the paper size for the output
Once the paper size is indicated, GoHunt will produce a
preview of the output map similar to the following:
this window, click on the ‘Print’ button
to begin the process of sending the map to your printer.
Be sure the paper size and orientation is set correctly for
your printer using the print control screen that appears
next. The paper size should match the option you picked previously
when requesting the map from GoHunt and the page orientation
should be set to ‘landscape’.
