I have a bear hunt booked in a few weeks and would like to get a good map for my Garmin GPS. Can anyone suggest a source? The area I need is the Mantagao Wilderness Area near Moosehorn.

I have been looking online and can't find any that seem like they will be of much value yet they cost $100 US. Does anyone know of any that show more than just topo features and roads at a more reasonable price?

Hope someone actually sees this before my hunt is over. ;-)

In case anyone ever reads this, the garmin web site offers a topo only map for Canada.

Otherwise I found the forum in the link above that might allow you to download the same maps for free but they say it takes a long time to download, like hours.

I have found that mapping for Manitoba in any respect is severely lacking. Topography is fairly simple: Flat. Your best mapping is google maps for around here as far as I know. Your GPS will get you through your hunt fine.

I downloaded Topo Maps app for free and is very good with my hunting area just north of where you are going.
