I heard someone mention a GPS chip (we were talking about hunting elk in wyoming) that shows public/private land boundaries.
Is there such a thing? Anyone have info on this? this would come in handy for some of the hunts I have planned in which private land boundries may be hard to recognize. I dont want any ranchers angry at my group. This could alleviate any issues like that if something like this chip exists.
I do most of my scouting / planning on google earth, and use Forest Service and BLM maps to determine boundries.
Hope someone has some info on this topic.
I use the map that bitterroot posted. I also have a cabelas app on my phone that has it too. It is extremely useful out here and I use mine on my gps all the time. It is extremely easy to use and has gotten me quite a few places I didn't know I could get!
Thanks much. I will be looking into that. Sounds like something I need to invest in. Cant wait for October!
wyoming fish and game has a chip you can buy for 100 bucks or something crazzy but might be a good investment.
Check out GPSfiledepot.com find the maps for Wyoming and there are are several that have the landownership on them and they are free. I have used them before an dthey work great. Check out http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/state/wy several free ones there.
The Recon Hunt app uses the GPS built into iPhones and Android-compatible devices, so no data or phone signal is needed for users to log their locations.
Junior13 is right, it does not need a cell signal. It is a very detailed map and it has all the boundaries on it. It only costs $9.99 a year and to me you can't go wrong for that price. I used it a lot for shed hunting. It was nice to be able to sit at home the night before and be able to map out where I was going to go the next day just from my phone.
I must say..........I am more and more impressed with the openness and willingness to help others that I see on this site. Thanks a ton to all of you who responded. I just wish I had more info to help you all out! But it seems like you guys/gals are ahead of me in the western hunting timeline!!!!!!!! Maybe someday I will be able to return the favor with some advice/info/help to you too.
