The Etrex is simple rugged and cheap. I owned one and never had a problem with it. It may not lock on to satelites as quick as a WAAS enabled one or have an electronic compass. It has 500 waypoints,routes, and track features.

I use an Etrex backed with an old Silva compass.

Re: WHAT IS THE BEST INEXPENSIVE GPS FOR HUNTING?

I have used my E-trex Legend for about 8 years now. I use rechargeable bateries & carry an extra set when I hunt. I have the case w/ a belt clip and keep it on my bib strap so it points up. It does loose connection from time to time but usually regains the fix quickly...

I'd recomend any e-trex to the price watching hunter but I feel the newer 60csx would be a good investment and worth saving for.
