I am another new guy to hunting out west. I grew up hunting whitetails back east and really only hunted a couple different pieces of land my entire life. due to all of this, there was no need for a Topo Map.
So, my question to everyone out there is: What is the best way or where is the best place to get started familarizing myself with topo maps ( that is the prideful way of me saying I dont know how to read a topo map ). What do i look for when using a topo for elk hunting? how do i order the correct one? Are some better than others? Any other help would be greatly appreciated
And, This site is Great. I can see myself waisting many hours between now and Sept on here. Not that it will actually be a waste though!
