Being a backcountry hunting guide is a challenge. Being a first-year backcountry guide is an even bigger challenge. To prepare, my first purchase was a subscription to onX. The outfitter had lots of advice and was descriptive about the ground to hunt. Much of the country I had yet to see.
I created maps for my phone as there is no cell service in our location. On these maps, I left breadcrumbs and details. With onX, I found every landmark mentioned, no matter how obscure, and confidently guided hunters in trail-less wilderness.
Out of the backcountry, I love features such as property ownership information and boundaries.
I'm sold on onX. It's almost like cheating - to be able to "read the land" before setting foot on it, was a boost for a 50 something, first time elk hunting guide. And when you are a woman, the need to be confident (and not get lost) is even higher. Love onX!!
