Finding the Fenn Treasure is going to take a lot of research, not to mention hours and hours of thought and study.
Other than maps, you’ll want to study as much Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone National Park, Gallatin National Forest, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Grand Teton, history as you possibly can.
Forrest loves old history books and tales of the settlers and trappers who spread out throughout this land a hundred and fifty years ago or more.
He also is an expert in Native American culture and archaeology. So, studying up on Indian culture and history (from every band in the area) would be wise.

‘...it seems prudent to do a little investigating about higher things.’
[From the chapter: Important Literature]
‘The one who was closest was about 200 feet to the chest. I don't have any reason to believe they were closer than that.’
[Quote from Forrest Fenn]
One important source of valuable hints & clues that many people miss - is Forrest Fenn himself. The man who hid the treasure and wrote the poem. Forrest has been known to give out numerous clues, as to the location of the treasure, and hints about solving the puzzle. But, keep a close eye on the words he uses. They often seem to be chosen specifically to manipulate the listener!
Scour the blogs for interviews and quotes from Forrest himself. They will often give you great insight into the man, his history, and the riddle you’ll need to solve before you can even hope to find the pot of gold.
