    I got all the forest service maps for where i hunt in south western montana. Shows all the state, forest service, private sections etc. Also have a garmin gps with the montana land ownership hunting maps, a must have in my opinion.

    I know the OP had asked about paper maps but I have been really impressed with the topo maps available thru the Cabelas Recon app. With the Public Land Boundaries add-on I was able to figure out some tricky BLM/private checkerboard boundaries while hunting mulies in Wyoming last fall.

    There are some limitations I had to consider like conserving battery life of phone (android) by disabling gps when not needed. I also had to preload topo data to SD card while having a wireless connection beforehand. But with efficient use I was able to get the same things done with this setup as my buddie's $400 garmin with $100+ chip.

    If you log online to their website you can also create custom maps with any boundary overlays, topo or satellite and any data pts you would like to have added. I have not used this function personally but it might be helpful.

    Free GPS maps.

    http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/

    Not all areas you're after will be on there nor are they the BEST you can find, but they show the boundaries of private and public land and other essentials. I do not need to know the EXTREME details of a location and pay astronomical amounts. I think many of the high dollar digital maps for GPS are overkill. Just me...

    I do not need to know someone once farted @ 10,235 feet @ these coordinates... Give me the basics that i can use to get where I need to go and get back. That's what you'll find @ the GPS Depot.

    Each national forest district seem to have their own maps they make available, not all Districts are the same. I have gotten paper maps from them that showed information that no other maps had. For example I got one that was useless for topo , but it showed special features, one really important one...gates blocking roads. Here is a site with a lot of BLM info http://www.geocommunicator.gov You can really get a lot out of it if you get into it. Look for the site mapper.

    Just wanted to resurrect this one, I just got my maps in from these guys.

    They have the USGS maps, which I like, but I also found out that you can specify an area that you want, i.e., it can span several USGS maps, add grids, pre-folded, etc, plus the waterproofing.

    For the cost of 3 non-waterproof paper USGS maps plus shipping, I got three maps that cover all of the areas where I'll be hunting, getting wood, etc and cover the area of about 12 USGS maps.

    Quite nice, thanks again.
