I use a garmin oregon 450t gps.
    I have the oregon 450 with a chip for Co & Wy. Whats really nice is it will show where you are in relation to these boundries...real time. You can see on the screen your location in relation to NF, Wliderness & PP boundries. If you are in a wilderness area you will see it.

    I'd HIGHLY recommend a GPS for western hunting.

    Ya the hunting gps maps are amazing, has allowed me to go places where most folks turn around since the fence is posted PP even though the fence line is public. I have found many places where whoever has the grazing rights try and post private. They may have some acres, or a sections within this area, but I have found in many cases over 80% of the posted area is BLM. I just use a cheap Garmin Venture HC and it is super simple and easy to operate.

    Thats where I bought mine, good thing is you can compare all the models together. I was wanting the 800/850 and when I actually had one in my hand, felt it was to big and heavy to be carrying around all day hunting. They have the hunting chips too.

    I shot a 31" 7X6 not too far over Togwotee pass a few years ago. North of Dubois after you go over the pass you will see some high rock cliffs. The tallest one is called Breccia (sp?) Peak. We camped at a little lake and I found him right at the base of the cliffs there. The top of the cliffs and north is the wilderness.

    You may want to get it ahead of time. Cabelas is showing the WY chip on backorder online. Sportsmans warehouse shows its available online. You can order it direct too. Im going to see if cabelas has it in store tomorrow since I will be in the area. If they dont Im going to order it so I have it before I head off to WY. This will be my first year using my oregon 450t and the chip.
