an F12 and F13 should cover you from poplar to cross bay and down to Cherokee. I think the 4A doesn't go south enough to include Cherokee.

Ya, funny how most of the maps cut off right along this route (I'm sure there's a good reason for that which I'm unaware of). Just did that route a couple of weeks ago and also dicovered (as already mentioned) that the Fisher F-12 is the only map that has all the area on it. We used the Fisher and brought 2 McKenzie maps for backup.

McKenzie map 4A covers that area

Ok, the Fisher F-12 covers that entire area and takes in about half of Brule to the East, covers a couple portages South of Cherokee, goes North all the way to gun flint lake and covers pretty far west to a nclude the entire frost river and beyond......I can’t find my McKenzie right now, but it wasn’t a standard map.....it was an overlay.....it might be map 7a? The outfitters in the area all carry it or do what I did and call McKenzie maps and tell them what you want and they will mail it to you.....postage is less if you get a folded map versus a rolled map.....

There is a mckenzie map specific for that route.....when I get home, I’ll get the number for you....if no one else has chimed in with it by then....

So it seems like my Fisher and Voyageur maps keep me right on the edge of where I want to be so I have to switch to several maps. Is there a map or even two that have most of my route on them?
