Idaho Ron Posted April 18, 2002 Share Posted April 18, 2002 I work as a reservist for the Idaho Fish & Game. For the last two years I have been trapping sage grouse at night for the last three years. We trap the birds and put radio collars on them and leg bands. I have been lost every time I go out for the first two years. The desert I go to is huge and since we trap them at night and off road, well like I said I was lost and so was every one I was with. This year I got a Garmin Etrex camo. I practiced with it a bunch geo-caching. When I went out to trap this year things were a lot different. I got the locations of the leks from the F&G. I knew right where they were. I was able to do my job better because I wasn't worried about being lost all the time. I worked with four other guys that had not used them before. These guys were hooked. After we were out for several hours I would ask them which way to the truck? no one EVER got it right. Do any of you use your GPS's for work? Quote Link to comment
