Are the locations on the Fisher Maps / McKenzie Maps fairly accurate?

Yep. Although I'd spend a little time searching close to the waterline on Keewatin. I believe there are a few more picto's there than are widely documented.

Thanks Rob. I think that Trant one was marked wrong on most maps.

I stand corrected. I was using my McKenzie Maps for the trip down this set of lakes and had no problem finding the specified picto's. However, upon actually inspecting those maps I discover that the red dots marking the picto's are not printed on the maps, but rather hand drawn red dots. This means that I likely transferred their location based to the maps based on the contents of Furtman's "Magic on the Rocks" material.

This matches what I remember when I saw them last summer.
