Garmin makes a good selection of GPS's. I have the Garmin 12 GPS which works great and you can get it for around $150. They also have the new e-Trex that have more options but will cost around $250.

garmin is the best in gps navigation. i have the 12XL nice system but spendy around 200. if price is an issue walmart carries a lil garmin for around 100 its also a model of the etrex and is easy to use. if its just for hunting and fishing thats all you really need. i got my 12XL to use in forestry also. it just has more funtions. but for you if its just recreational go with the etrex for 100. i've used it and like it for the simplicity.

I agree with your choice of Garmin.

Be careful on what you spend on HSOList. For a 12 if you look you can get them for $135. Check Reed's in Walker

    • http://shareblue.com/every-outlet-wh-banned-from-press-briefing-is-chasing-stories-on-trumps-russia-ties/   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
