For nearly 10 years now I have used onX Hunt to know where I am supposed to go. In confirming visible or invisible boundaries, planning safe and efficient routes for me and my hunters, finding new habitat features that I never knew existed, locating access to difficult parcels, and keeping explorers honest in their adventure; onX Hunt gets me there. The chip, app and website are all user friendly. Having parcel data is a necessity however the tools, layers and website/app interface are extremely useful. I do not have any dislike related to onX Hunt.
However, do not forget to download maps to your device before you go off the grid.
I purchased this chip for my Garmin Alpha. It's handheld and used with tracking hounds. While in forest service or BLM it shows landowner names and boundary information which is very helpful when guiding bear and mountain lion hunts. Really like the use of the product. It helps keep us on the right side of the fence!
My son was excited this spring to go turkey hunting for the first time. We relied on the onX app to find public lands and landowner contacts. We scouted and eventually were able to find private land to hunt which lead to him getting his first Tom. I have used this app for 3 years now. Comes in handy for marking tree stands, finding pheasant hunting spots and scouting from the couch!
I have been a Kenetrek fan since I could afford my first pair back in 2011. That pair lasted me 6 years and I still wear them today even though they are severely worn down. Since that first pair my wife and I both only use Kenetrek boots. Now that I have the heavy insulation boots I find myself wearing these boots anytime I am out in colder conditions. I have pushed them honestly further than I should have as far as temps are concerned and although my feet did get slightly cold in the negative temperature range they still performed just fine.
I was in need of a new pair of binoculars and did the research and decided on the Vortex Crossfire HD. To me hunting in Mississippi I didn't need any extremely powerful glasses but I needed very good clear vision to make sure of what I was shooting and these are the perfect match for what I needed in a binocular.
I've used onX extensively for a number of years. It keeps getting better. The latest and greatest for me has been the photo waypoints which I use a lot. The ability to download and use maps out of cell service is very useful. I would never go back to a handheld GPS unit. There's also a ton of research and information that can be had with the available layers before you ever get your boots dirty. Between hunting, guiding, hiking, shed hunting and forevermore looking over the next hill I use my onX more days than not.
As a turkey guide I don't know how I made it without onX. I use it to pin point birds and look at the topography to find the best way to move on a bird, especially on new ground that I'm not familiar with. There is a little learning curve trying to figure out all the features and navigation but as you play with it it's easy enough to learn. Over all its a great tool that I will continue to use I'm even considering upgrading to the elite plan so I'll have all 50 states.
Being a guide I am always watching what I eat and trying to stay in the best possible shape I can in the off season. I purchased Ammo by MTN OPS to help me attain the results I was looking for. In the summer and fall because I am always on the go, Its very easy for me to get into a routine of eating just about what ever I want, knowing that I am going to burn it off. However, when winter sets in and the activity level goes down to just working out in the gym, I tend to put a little weight on. Ammo allows me to replace one or two meals a day with great nutrient rich shakes that help curb my appetite and give me what I need to feel satisfied through out the day. I am a chocolate freak, so I purchased the chocolate flavor and with a little Almond milk and a few ice cubes, it feels and tastes like I am drinking a milkshake. The taste is pretty amazing as well, I have tried other meal replacement shakes and could never get past the taste. Something I have not experienced with MTN OPS AMMO.
