As long as it's a Garmin you won't go wrong. I have used a 12XL for years, i don't think they even make it any longer but it gets me in and out of the thickest woods just fine. You will be suprised at how usefull it is. I have a TOPO series map on the computer that I download all my trails and waypoints on. I have years of tree stand sites, deer trails, rub lines and parking spots on the computer map.
One bit of advice, allways carry a compass with you. Mine has never quit on me but it has run out of batteries.
very true and i like to keep a hot hands pack next to it when it gets REAL COLD
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
