• Great stuff here man, enjoyed the read. I’ve noticed in a few of your posts that you talk about GPSmaps, I’ve been looking at a new GPS for the last few months & I was wondering what model of gps’s you would suggest?

      Hi Jake. I have a Garmin 60csx. It was originally a $450-$500 unit, but I got it when it was discontinued for around $199. I think it has been replaced with the 62 series now. Personally, I am a huge fan of Garmin units, but not a fan of the touch screen models. (That’s just a preference…there nothing wrong with the touch screen, really.) I would look for something basic, but make sure it supports topo maps and also accepts a microSD card. Something like the eTrex 20 is going to be on the cheaper end, but still have those features. But, if you can find a used or discontinued 60csx, I would jump on it.

      • Thanks for all the info! Im in the same boat as you when it comes to touch screen GPS’s, I’ve actually looking at the Garmin 62s but I’ll see if I can find 60csx. Thanks again, BTW great interview with Rinella, he’s one of the few guy who I can look up to as a true DIY hunter. Keep up the good work man!

    Thanks for the article. I will be rifle hunting branch antler bulls for the first time this season. I know this article was written with bow hunter/rutting bulls in mind but I found some helpful tips. One thing I still wonder about, do bedded post-rut bull elk like a view? Given two choices will they bed in thick timber were there is no real view or bed on grassy mountainside with trees covering approx 20% of the hillside?
