onX Hunt Hosting “40X” Event at 2023 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic

Every dollar donated to Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever is matched 40X in Minnesota to improve access and habitat

onX Hunt is excited to host its “40X” event at this year’s Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 17, 2023, from 9 p.m. – 12 a.m. Pheasants Forever is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and as a longtime partner, onX Hunt is marking the milestone with a 40X party at the annual Pheasant Fest. This special event will raise funds and awareness for upland hunting land access and habitat.

40X refers to Pheasants Forever’s ability to match every dollar donated  towards projects in Minnesota by 40X thanks to Pheasants Forever chapters and partners in conservation, turning a $1 donation into $40. All the proceeds go towards onX Hunt and Pheasants Forever’s shared missions of permanently protecting critical habitat for upland wildlife as well as opening up more land to public hunting.

onX Hunt’s 40X celebration is taking place immediately following Pheasant Forever’s Upland Rally. Attendees can enjoy beverages courtesy of Leinenkugels, listen to live music from local band Dam Jammers, hang out with onX and Pheasants Forever ambassadors and staff, as well as place a pin on a U.S. map, marking where they are from or their favorite state to hunt upland birds. For each pin placed on the map, onX Hunt will donate $40 to Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever, which will multiply each of those donations by 40X. That means each pin placed raises $1,600 for habitat and access.

40X event attendees will also have a chance to win over $25,000 worth of door prizes from onX Hunt partners such as Final Rise, Purina, First Lite, Federal Ammunition, Lucky Duck, SoundGear, Upland Gun Company and others.

The 40X event is part of onX’s commitment to protecting habitat and increasing access to public lands. In the past two years, onX has helped support over 1,000 acres of public access across  Minnesota, South Dakota and Iowa through Pheasants Forever’s Build a Wildlife Area program. Across the U.S., onX aims to improve access to over 150,000 acres of public lands and build or restore 150 miles of trails by the end of 2023.

To join in the fun, stop by the free 40X event on February 17 from 9 p.m.-12 a.m.at the Hyatt Regency Downtown’s Lakeshore Ballroom. To learn more about onX Hunt’s conservation and land access initiatives, check out onxmaps.com/onx-access-initiatives.
