    The keypoints on the map are approximated based on these experiences, and were not compiled using a GPS device. Please remember that wildlife movement is often unpredictable. This map is intended to give the user an approximate idea of where certain species may roam, but certainly does not offer any guarantees of sightings.

    For additional information about some of these sightings, read Max's trip reports or view Max's Yellowstone Photos. Also find useful information and get your questions answered at the Yellowstone.net Forums.

    We hope this helps you plan a successful wildlife-viewing trip to Yellowstone!
