    WA280Guy- GPS Hunting Maps and a BLM map to get an overview seemed to work well for me. I bought the BLM maps needed and cut out the unit taped it together and laminated it. Below link will sort the maps needed by species and unit in Wy (drop down box).

    I have the Garmin 62 as well and have had good luck with it. Never been through the units you are looking at so I've got nothing to add there......... Good luck to you!

    You can do it that way and I would highly recommend plic, but if you need more then 1 map for the unit I would get it from mytopo. By the time you get done it wont cost anymore and the unit boundary is even marked in it!

    +1 on the mytopo. The area I'm trying to draw this year is spread over 4 maps. Technically 5, but just a smidge of land on the 5th. Its a real pain....Mytopo puts it all on 1. But its $35 too. BLM maps are $4 each. So you do pay just a bit more.

    Yes. its the same map, its just centered on the unit you want. Their preview maps are also great for scouting and to get an idea of how much public land is in the unit. Part of why I started buying maps from them is I use their preview maps so much for research I started feeling bad about it. lol

    mytopo site is really easy to use. I wish I had checked it out before I taped a bunch of BLM maps together....and laminated them using packing tape......

    They do show a real nice preview. Easier than looking at 2 or 3 pages in the Wyoming Gazetteer and much better detail.

    I probably have over 50 of their preview maps saved on my computer. I even have then separated into folders by state, species, region, ect.

    Haha....I do the same thing MM. I also custom make 1:10,000 scale with arial, topo, private/public land, and GMU overlays when I find a specific area I want to look at. Then preview and save. Its plenty clear enough to read the land owner names. I select 4x5 size or something like that. Covers around 60k acres I believe. Can't remember. But I have a bunch of them like you, and all organized lol
