    That's the thread you're looking for. You have to click on the link he provides and save the .kmz file. Once you open Google Earth, click File, Open, then select your .kmz file. It will pop right up for you. Unfortunately, it's not an official source of information and you'll have to be careful using it. He created it from the GMU maps that F&G provide, which means the scale isn't useful once you zoom in very close. You will still need to refer to the regs about "follows along a ridge between Big Mountain and Little Mountain, then down Fish Creek to its confluence with the Porcupine River..."

    This is the link for his website. It's pretty neat. Just right click on the hotlink, choose Save Target As (make sure the file type is .kmz or .kml so that Google Earth can use it). Viola! GIS!
