- In a van down by the river
i actually got lost on MD public land this winter. my phone died and my flashlight went out on the hike back and i was only about a half mile from my truck when it died. not sure where i went wrong but i have never got so turned around in my life. regret not having a compass, extra light, or a handheld gps. it was below freezing and the only time ive ever been freaked out in the woods hunting (a couple acid trips in college probably topped it). took me an extra hour to get back to my truckOnx hands down, it gives me the confidence to hunt areas, especially public I never hunted before. This is the first year I ever hunted out of state and I gained that confidence via Onx Hunt. I highly recommend it. Although I have had minimal to no issues accessing my information online "live" if you will, you save an area/map while you have access under "Off Grid" and then later IF you are having trouble accessing your saved info., just access it from Off grid and you can see everything you saved, your waypoints etc. I always carry a GPS and a compass when hunting large tracks of relatively unknown public but I rarely have needed to use them if at all. It is a great resource. I went with the Elite with the THP discount.
