Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Nov 11, 2018

Remember when maps were on paper?  We use to spend money on paper topo maps and put a thumbtack on that map to represent a deer sighting, effectively creating heat map with multiple thumbtacks.  Then along came Google and Google Maps.  It was a revolutionary step forward in scouting technology, but there were some very important pieces missing from the Google map.  For one, we couldn't instantly in-the field in real-time tell where the boundary lines of property existed. Sure, we could spend hours looking at town survey maps, but nothing was instant.  And who the heck owned the property?  That was another game of tracking down slow information points.  These were all the challenges that Eric Siegfried, founder of OnX Maps had at one time.  All of the information was available, but not instantly on any single device in an organized manner when you needed it.  So, Eric set out to fix all that with his new company.  A decade later, with a subscription and smart phone or GPS you can instantly have access to all this information.  It's a game changer for the hunter.  You'll learn more about the areas that you hunt than you ever thought to ask and it makes the hunting possibilities endless.  We dive deep into all the bells, whistles, and capabilities that OnX has to offer with Zach Sandau, Project Co-Ordinator for OnX Hunt. This is part IV of our series on hunting technology and stay tune for out next episode when we explore arrow and broad head technology with David Hand CEO of Ballistic Arrow Tech and Slash Arrows.
