      I have never owned one but from the standpoint of interest I am considering this purchase. I see lots of possibilities such as relocating your dead bull elk when you return to the kill site with pack horses to haul it to camp. Getting lost in the mountains has never been a great concern of mine due to the nature of the terrain and my experience. Nevertheless in event that one did become lost a GPS could be a life saver. Also the SPOT that Clay recommends is a wonderful item to include in your fanny pack.

          I don't. Right now I wouldn't have much use for one.

              Compass does fine, as it has for millenia. No need for more toys.

                A good tool to have when hunting the big country, going the wrong way around here could mean walking for days without crossing a road or any sign of civilization.

                  I will but only if i am going into country i am unfamiliar with, One nice thing about wisconsin is that if you can walk in a straight line for an hour you are bound to hit a farm field, road or at least a dairy cow.

                    A compass is normally what I take. No batteries. It would be nice to have for fishing spots or hunts in thick swamps or mountains. Just not sure I would rely on it for survival.

                        Absolutely. I like to mark my stand positions as accurately as possible, then study them on aerial maps to refine my strategy.

                          Always a compass. Planing to buy a GPS; Then both with spare batts. Am looking for a comparison before I buy. I think I saw one a few months ago, but can't find now, in an outdoor mag (F&S?). Anybody see or know of a comparison, or can recommend one for hunting, with mapping. Thanks!

                                Finally got caught up at work. Three months and it’s full bore again. They’d better find some decent help or I’m retiring early.
