I hunted unit 70 last year, the best advice I can give you would be to get the Wyoming GPS map from the LRH store, you will need it in unit 70, there is also some walk in area hunting available. You will also need the Casper BLM map. Also if at all possible, plan on being there on opening day. I will check my GPS and see if I still have anything marked, if not when you get your BLM map maybe we could get together and you can copy the information from mine, I'm in Missouri. If you are planning to camp at Alcova Reservoir I should be there too, I camped at Blacks Beach last year. If you don't want to pay $7.00 per night for camping there are free sights along the North Platte river on the "Trappers Route". If it rains you will need a 4 wheel drive (really should have one anyway) and chains for all 4 wheels.
If there are any specifics I can help with let me know!
