    No. The alternative is to print a map and do a bunch of research and hand write and you access points and property boundaries or maybe calling blm to see if they have maps of the intended area and if they have property boundaries and public access points and again try to transcribe it on said map.

    https://huntwise.com/
    https://www.huntstand.com/
    https://www.gaiagps.com/hunting/
    https://www.hunterra.com/

    And finally:

    https://www.mytopo.com/maps/

    Here you can create your own paper maps and have them printed. Honestly, all are about the same price. Competition in the market, etc...

    I prefer OnX because they were the first, seem to have the most mature data, and update processes and they are a local business based here in Missoula.

    I seem to remember reading in the "Wyoming Wildlife" magazine that it's okay to float through private property but if you set foot in the stream/river bed then you are trespassing.

    Thanks everyone for the guidance & suggestions. Next time I've a problem with BLM/Federal land access I'll contact the BLM office and the local law enforcement. I know the access rules and follow them, and don't knowingly trespass. Being bullied off public land is not acceptable; My GPS is accurate and the BLM land shows plainly next time I'll be prepared.
