Free OnXmaps HUNT App Offered to RMEF Membership

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is excited to announce that onXmaps is offering a free 12-month membership of their premium HUNT App for mobile devices to RMEF members.

“This is an incredible offer from a sponsor-partner that provides a tremendous benefit to our members,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “Even more than that, this advancement of our relationship shows the commitment that onXmaps has toward RMEF and our mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.” 

“One of the reasons this partnership is so important to us is because RMEF shares the same core objective of increasing the opportunity for hunters and outdoorsmen to enjoy elk country,” said Matt Seidel, marketing director for onXmaps. “RMEF achieves this through improving and conserving lands most important to wildlife, while onXmaps gives its map users the best information for finding and navigating the right hunting and recreational lands.” 

The HUNT App essentially turns mobile devices (iPhone, iPad & Android) into dedicated GPS units. It allows users to view color-coded customizable layers of public lands, private lands, hunting units and other information on satellite, topo or hybrid basemaps right from their phone or tablet. The app also allows for the caching of maps for offline use even in areas where there is no cellular coverage. Users can also use markups to create waypoints with hunting icons and photos, identify land owner names and ranch boundaries, toggle between basemaps and easily determine their position in relation to public or private property boundaries. 

“I downloaded the app several months ago when it was first made available and I find it more convenient than what is on my GPS,” said Decker. “It has a whole lot of functionality beyond just the layers of ownership. And from an elk hunter’s perspective, it’s a valuable tool.” 

The Hunt App is available on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and HuntingGPSmaps.com. RMEF members receive a free redemption code by logging into the ‘My RMEF’ section of www.rmef.org.

“Our supporting (or annual) membership is $35 so for onXmaps to offer this $34.99 app for free for one year is pretty amazing,” added Decker. 

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:
Founded over 30 years ago, fueled by hunters and a membership of more than 200,000 strong, RMEF has conserved more than 6.4 million acres for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also works to open and improve public access, fund and advocate for science-based resource management, and ensure the future of America’s hunting heritage.
