Re: Best BLM maps for Wyoming?

The link nimrod posted is the way to go for the BLM maps as many places are charging up to $10 for the same ones! Those and a GPS with the microSD chip and you should be all set to go! I use both, as well as making my own maps zooming in on where I will be with a couple software programs I've purchased if there is much private property where I will be. One was from Maptrails and covered just Wyoming, but it is no longer available. The other from DeLorme is called Topo North America 9.0 and covers the entire North American continent. IMO it is well worth the $99 they want for it as it also shows land ownership, coordinates, zoom in/out, many icons and things you can put on it to print out your own custom map, etc.

If your hunt area is in an area where oil/gas drilling has been heavy, the roads wil be difrent than any map you buy, lots of new roads. The new version of the gps chip shows who owns the land as well, you can use this to know who to ask for premission. Good luck on the draw.
I agree 100%. Exploration has revamped the roads around here. I do a lot of survey and its amazing how fast roads chang and cell coverage drops based on the wind.

Best thing to do is call the BLM field office in the unit you plan to hunt and request maps....when I worked for them in MT maps were about $7.50 ea.
