Customize the map with the information most relevant to your hunt with Layers.
- State - Each state is divided into different hunt units and the regulations for the hunt unit determine whether you are able to pursue game there.
Within a unit, owner permission is required to hunt any property. Use private and government ownership info to guide your research into possible access.
- Hunt - Habitat, weather, and the presence of people all shape your odds of finding game. Use layers like Historic Wildfire, Timber Cuts, and Wilderness to scout likely areas.
- Trails & Rec - Trails, USFS Motor Vehicle Roads, and Recreation Sites help you find your way into the backcountry and key locations like campgrounds, trailheads, boat ramps, and ranger stations.
Use Layer Library and My Layers to manage the information on the map:
- Find layers you need in the Layer Library and tap + to add them to My Layers. Add all layers for each state you want to explore on the map.
- Tap on a layer in My Layers to turn it on or off. Tap Layer Settings to customize the layer for your hunt. Select your target species in hunt unit layer settings.
Access Note - It’s up to the hunter to know where you stand, but onX Hunt can help. We aim to provide you with key information for planning your hunt, as well as guidance on how to use that information to find places to hunt. Keep in mind that government owned properties in onX Hunt are not always accessible to the public and may be subject to special restrictions, so it’s best to check with the managing agency and to obey any signs you encounter in the field. Roads displayed on the map may include state, county, and private roads and do not connote public access. Tap on the property to find the managing agency (e.g. Bureau of Land Management, National Forest, etc) that can answer your access questions.
