onX Weather Feature FAQ

Is Weather reporting the conditions for my current location?

Yes, instead of basing weather reports on zip codes or nearest cities, onX reports weather conditions from the nearest weather station to your current location or wherever you point to on the map.

 


How current is the Weather information?

onX looks for weather updates from the nearest weather station every 15 minutes. 

 


How do I use the Weather feature in onX Hunt to improve my chance of success on my hunt?

Hunters rely on wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and precipitation for planning and executing a hunt. Knowing how wind direction might change by the hour, or if barometric pressure is rising or falling, or if rain will worsen or turn into a drizzle helps a hunter pick the best hunting spots, pack the right gear, and make in-the-moment adjustments to their tactics based on current and forecasted weather conditions. 

 


What is the best weather for hunting deer?

While rain isn’t great for hunting deer, cloudy skies are better for deer movement. Clear, bright, and cold sunny days are best for deer hunting because deer need more food and movement to stay warm instead of bedding down when it’s cold.

 


What temperature do deer move the most?

No exact temperature has been identified that makes deer move the most. However, temperatures above 60 degrees are when deer move the least. Depending on your location, deer may move more when it’s in the 30s, 40s, or 50s, but in general, the colder the better. 

 


What is the best time to go hunting?

Deer are diurnal, meaning they are most active in early morning and late evening because that’s when their eyesight is most effective. Those are generally the best times to go hunting.
