2020 Year in Review | onX Hunt

2020. The year we gained a new appreciation for “outside.” Everyone’s seasons looked a little bit different this year, but we’ve never been more grateful for the wide-open mountain spaces and cozy little hunting camps deep in the woods. Outside has been our escape; our touchpoint.

Here at onX, our teams have spent most of the year working from home, adjusting to a new workspace paradigm that, instead of meeting rooms and jumbo-size coffee percolators, involves chatty children for some and an odd sense of isolation for others. We’ve been united, however, around the work. This year has brought many changes to onX—we’re growing as a company, continuing to establish onX Offroad and premiering onX Backcountry.

onX Hunt, our original app, continues to expand and improve as our dedicated Hunt teams evolve the product.

2020 was a busy year for onX Hunt. We’ve enjoyed looking back at some of the ways you used the App (often for things we’d never think of!), and the cumulative stats of how onX Hunt users around the country used features, Layers, and more in the Hunt App.

Here’s what we found:

A couple of our favorite 2020 highlights are:

  • 3,100 counties with updated Land Ownership information
  • 64,773,539 miles tracked
  • 14 million Wind & Weather forecasts viewed 
  • 23.4 million Waypoints created
  • Aerial was the most-used Basemap
