    Are there any websites that offer free topo maps? I've checked out a few, but they either charge a fee for each map or a subscription. Appreciate any info.

    I go to mytopo.com and set it up and then take screen prints of the area I need an arial map for. I buy the topo maps from them, but you can do the same with the topo's. IF when I do the arial maps, that 3 arial maps wouldnt equal 1 topo map, I'd buy it to. screen prints are convienient so after season when I scout out the areas by walking the trails I can sketch them onto the arial maps on site so I know where to go next season, where the funnels are, rub/scrape lines...ect. I love their topos and I think i paid $10 or $15 for mine, the arials are more expensive.

    I can understand your desires to not spend money for these maps. But, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for...with that in mind, if you decide to purchase, check engineering firms in your area. They may have maps avaiable.. survey companys also. You can even run a check on ebay. LOL
