Great Product

Review by Brandon
Great product. Only thing I would change is the color of some of the roads as they blend in with the topo lines.

Endless Opportunity

Review by Jason
I was on an elk hunt in southwestern Montana when I spotted a herd of cows sitting on a bluff, right next to a large area of private cattle land.

A local to the area stopped and chatted about the cows, he made the comment that its all private land and its a waste of time to try and go after them. WELL...I looked at my GPS, using my Hunting Maps GPS software of noticed that the elk were near a large section of state land.

Thanking the hunter, he left and I went after them. I parked, hiked in, and walked up on three good sized bulls. Well, since I also had a general tag I ended up getting the first bull of my lifetime, a beautiful 5x6.

If it weren't for my gps map, I would have never thought about going after those cows! I have since hunted that area three more times and have harvested three cow elk. My gps map set has changed my hunting game all together!

This product gave me a chance to full fill on of my biggest dreams, shooting a nice bull elk.

I now promote this product to everyone I talk to, probably the greatest hunting tool since the development of the high powered rifle.

Easy to use, easy to determine information on map set, overall awesome product!

One Chip Not Enough

Review by Lee
This is my second HUNT Montana map chip as it seemed one chip was not enough so now I have one for the automobile Garmin Nuvi in the truck along with the same chip in my Garmin Montana.
Both well worth the money as I mentioned in the review of the same chip for the handheld gps, Didn't like taking one out of the Nuvi to put in the Montana. Now the best of both worlds without any changing of chips. If I had one more I could keep one in the laptop too.

Best mapping out there

Review by David
I have used this on my gps's for 3 years now. I would recommend this product to any hunter.
I like the fact that you can get a upgrade download each year for a discount.

Great to determine what land your are on Private/ Public

Great for marking waypoint of where you shot your game
and then going back to it.

Color coding for easy viewing.

Easy to transfer from Garmin basecamp to the gps device

Great help videos for learning to use the software.

Great for Real Estate.(Property lines/ Plat books)

Easy to use with base camp to see where you were that last hunt, and plan accordingly for next day.

No plat books in Midwest states YET.. They are working on it.

Maps on this download will not work with basecamp and google earth overlay. The google earth overlay is separate.

I have two Garmin rhinos and I would like to put it on both. No can do. With/ out extra cost. Wish they had a buy 2 package

Cost A++++
Usability A++++
Functionality A++++
Hunting districts A++++
Private Vs Public A++++

Telling me where the Elk Are F+ (Good fun)

...wish they’d ban sales to deer & antelope

Review by griz326
I swear the deer and antelope have subscriptions to this GPS add-on. Those critters are always on private property... :)

Great product.

Tech and Youth hunting

Review by Burke
I used the Hunting GPS Maps during the youth hunt in Montana, and my son loved the fact he could see what parcels of land we were on, we could then cross check with the regulations. GPS mapping brings a level of technology to hunting which makes the whole experience for our youth very engaging. Thanks

Great Product

Review by Mark
I bought a new Garmin Rino 650. I compared different map programs and after talking with other users, I went with the Hunting GPS Maps HUNT Montana. A big tipping point for me was the Block Management areas on the map. I do all my hunting on public land and like knowing I'm on the right property. It's also great to locate state lands. I also found access to National Forest land in a new area. I find myself taking the GPS with me on all trips now just to find potential hunting spots.

Great chip. Never question where you hunt again !

Review by John
Never guess about anything. This product has taught me a ton of areas I had no clue I could hunt. The BLM update was great. Only wish updates were free, or they offered a lifetime update option like garmin and most other companies.
(Posted on October 2013)


Review by Rick
Having both the hunt unit boundaries and the block management information right on your gps unit is priceless! It's about time someone included this valuable information on a gps map. It will keep you away from private land and lots of trouble.
(Posted on October 2013)


Review by William
I won this chip at a RMEF banquet, after recieving it I plug it in to my computer. and I was amazed at how easy it was to navigate. Just showing the names of the property owners is awesome. I cannot wait to use it in my GPS next week on my Antelope hunt.

Saved our Hunt

Review by The_Hard_Hunt
I bought the chip after buying the 62s I bought from REI. We knew the area we had always hunted. My step-father had come down from Alaska to help call, more importantly pack-out, for me. The Elk moved very differently this year do to a hard early snow. We always hunted BLM/State but we tracked them to a private ranch. Used the app to get ahold of the land management company, gave us permission to walk there fence to a isolated spot of State land; right where the elk were.

Definately would not have tagged out on a nice bull if it wasn't for the chip and info. That all being said, the graphics and detail is amazing. I am buying it for my iPhone as we speak.

Indispensable !!

Review by Gary
My son and I were on a 'bucket-list' trip to Montana for sharptails. I purchased the GPS map and off we went, with VERY little local info to go on. With the handheld GPS in the car and in our pocket we were able to quickly determine where we were, who's land we were looking at, and how large an area it was. The map definitely made the trip easier, simpler, and worry free. I will never go without one of these (wherever we go) again !!

Outstanding assessory for your GPS

Review by Tim
This is an absolute must have for anyone that enjoys the outdoors. I use my GPS for hunting, fishing, trail riding and Geocaching. The detailed maps provide roads, streams, landowner, topographical and now block management information. With this addition to my GPS, I have found new areas to hunt and fish, and have been on roads that I never knew existed.

Review by Dale
I have used this while hunting and geocaching . It is a very good product.

Simply Awesome!

Review by owen
This is one of the coolest tools I've ever used! It has given me new ground to hunt on, and keeps me off certain lands that I don't want to be on. It has helped me so much, I absolutely love it, and highly recommend to it to every MT hunter!!

Great Addition to Hunting Tools

Review by Lacey
This has been the best tool that I have used for hunting in Montana. Not only has it helped us keep off of totally private land but has also opened up more areas of hunting that we never knew where around or that we did not know how get to. I never leave house now with out it.

One of my best purchases ever!

Review by KEVIN
I have been scared for years that I may be to close to hunting on private land so I have not hunted in areas that I have wanted. Now I have everything all at my fingertips with the Hunt Montana chip. I can now determine where my boundry's are, where my Block Management areas end, and where all public land is located in my favorite hunting area. I have been able to determine that some of my favorite spots that I wanted to hunt are completley legal! This tool for the hunter has to be up there in priority with a good bow or gun or pack. What I am saying is it is one of the most important tools we as hunters can have with us!

Review by John
This is the greatest hunting tool ever made. I discovered a herd of Antelope on public land last year using it and bagged a nice buck. I'm not sure I would have found a place to hunt without it. I never leave home without it.

Don't Leave Home Without It

Review by Lee
Love my Hunt Montana map chip and never leave home without it. Just had my Hunt Montana chip updated to the latest version so I now have Block Management Areas on my GPS along with all the other advantages these chips add to your Garmin GPS. I use mine to let me know when riding our atv or when out hunting where the private property is so I don't get into trouble trespassing. Lets me plan trips outdoors by knowing exactly where I can and cannot go.

Great product

Review by Nick
Awesome hunting tool. We actually bought it to see land boundaries but now use only for hunting. I would recommend it to anyone.
