How to Use onX Hunt to Scout a Destination Hunt

Hunt Urban’s Taylor Chamberlin details how he uses onX Hunt to break down a new hunting area that’s hundreds of miles from home.

Destination hunts are the vacation we look forward to all year, and it’s never too early to begin the preparation and scouting for these hunts to increase your odds of success. Using the onX Hunt App, you can lay out a hunt plan, including multiple backup options, by pouring over the Web Map or the hunting GPS maps of the area you plan to hunt. By identifying natural pinch points, funnels, saddles, and other terrain and natural features that affect deer movement, you can begin to hone in on your exact treestand locations months before you set foot on new ground.
