Thanks Larry, I already have a map of the Medicine Bow NF, but here's a online version of the same map, that maybe of interest to someone. You can click on the map a few times to enlarge it and get a much better detailed view of the map. Larger and easier to see than the paper version.
As far as bears go, I'm not real concerned with running into one while on the trail or fishing. I'm more concerned with one visiting camp at night or when no ones in camp.
Here's a link to the Medicine Bow NF east map there's also a west map.

Here's a link to the link of where this map came from. There are other maps here for the Shoshone, Bighorn, and Back Hills National Forest. Just scroll over the area of interest, and a menu will pop up.
