This GPS works great for hunting in a new area. I used this everyday while hunting in Colorado to make sure I wouldn't get lost and also to mark wallows and good stand locations. It has icons so you can mark everything from game trails, droppings, rubs, scrapes, & treestands not to mention the location of your vehicle. You can also buy detailed topomaps that can be downloaded onto a SD card and can be used in the GPS. I also use this GPS to help me keep track of my trail cams and stands during the whitetail season.
