    Where do I find high-quality WY unit maps? Or text descriptions of the units?

    I'll be hunting in WY for my first time and I can't find any high quality maps that show the exact boundaries. The only PDF map on the F&G site isn't very detailed. Specifically, I'm trying to determine the northern border between Region G & Region H (144 & 153/142/151). Idaho uses maps & text descriptions for each unit...I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction! Thanks!

    You can download free map PDFs or buy maps from the USGS. To download them as a PDF that you can use on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone go to http://store.usgs.gov/b2c_usgs/usgs/...a=%24ROOT)/.do

    In the search box, type in WY and then zoom in until you can see the names of the areas. Type in a name of an area and when it comes up, click on the red balloon and a list of downloadable files will come up.

    There is also software that is somewhat complicated to download and set up called TerraGo that will let you see layers. You might want to contact them for help on that but the PDFs as topo maps alone are useful.

    I love carrying PDFs of the areas I'm hunting on my tablet and phone.

    You'll have to get the free Terra Go software to see land ownership boundaries. I am not sure that Terra Go shows unit boundaries so this may not be exactly what you're looking for if you want to see a unit boundary line on the map but they are high quality maps to use in conjunction with the descriptions. Plus, its free.

    Otherwise, you'll probably want to go to Trimble maps at http://www.gpshuntfish.com/Elite/?gc...FWuhOgodkScAwg

    What about a good old text description? Example from Idaho:

    Unit 11—Those portions of Nez Perce, Lewis, and Idaho
    counties within the following boundary: beginning at the
    mouth of the Clearwater River, upstream to U.S. 95 bridge near
    Spalding, then southeast on U.S. 95 to the Graves Creek Road
    at Cottonwood, then south on Graves Creek Road to the Salmon
    River, then downstream to the Snake River, then downstream to
    the mouth of the Clearwater River, the point of beginning.

    How can the WY F&G expect me to look at a fuzzy PDF and know where I can and cannot hunt?

    They've almost got to have them as a text description somewhere. I would call WYFG.

    The Wyoming GF does give the legal (text) description of the areas in the hunting regulations. You can pull up last years regulations on the web site I believe.

    That's correct. Just click on this G&F Final Regulations link below from last year and scroll down to each unit for the exact boundaries to go along with the map you are looking at. Those are also printed in a booklet you'll get along with your license if you draw one.

    The Snake River and Greyback Ridge are G/H borders for the northern part of 144.

    I would get a map form mytopo since they show unit boundaries, or FS/BLM maps for the area and a good gps and huntinggpsmaps chip to know where the boundaries are when you are hunting.

    Mytopo maps are the best IMO.
