This Season: Wonder in the Little Things

This year we’re celebrating the little things in life. As we’ve all been forced to slow down and reevaluate our daily routines, we find ourselves more grateful than ever for the simple ability to head into the hills, rifle or bow in hand, and fill our freezers with meat we’ve harvested with (and for) friends and family. We’re thankful for the outdoor spaces that let us breathe fresh air and get outside, in a year when most of us are spending far more time at home than we’re accustomed to.

They say the holidays are a time for wonder, for inspiration. Well, this year we’ve been inspired by you. By your hunting stories from the field, by tales of father-daughter teams filling her first tag, and by messages from families who used the Hunt App to find outdoor trails for at-home “gym class” this autumn. We loved hearing your tales about using onX Waypoints to rescue a friend’s snow-bound truck, and stories about how you nearly got lost in a blizzard but used your Tracker to navigate back to camp. We’re inspired by the notes we receive via email and social media from hunters all over the country who are using onX to get outside, get home safely, and make the most of this year.

And as we head into 2021 and whatever that may bring our way, let’s pause for a deep breath and appreciate the little things that helped us work through the rollercoaster of 2020. Here at onX, we’d like to thank you for making us a part of your year. Without the onX community—without you—we wouldn’t be doing the work that drives us daily, and together we look forward to helping you create another year of outdoor memories. Thanks for being a part of our year.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
