    Some states have GIS maps for counties.

    on X maps all the way. If you only hunt your home state its like $30. Worth every penny.

    Gaia GPS. I have onyx maps as well and I think Gaia is easier to use and a better platform.

    on X. But just remember don't take it for heart. Find government maps and get confirmation that the piece of public you are going to is actually open for the public.

    Contact your State DNR or game management agency. They can steer you in the right direction on a state wide basis. I only hunt locally so know the lay of the land so to speak. I use the county plat book we get free every year which has the land owners listed for each piece of ground.

    I know MN, SD, and IA have google earth maps through their DNR websites. I would assume a lot of other states do as well.

    How does onx work when reporting errors in land owner names and stuff? I have reported two separate plots ( both my great grandfathers) that are listed on onx, as another person's property. Obviously I know who it belongs too as my family has been down this road over 100 years. But want others in my area to have to correct information, mainly so they know where not to be.

    I really like the HuntStand app. You can get property boundaries and mark them, save and edit your hunting areas, as well as mark trails or sign or anything else you feel the need to mark. When I scout post season and during the summer I use it and it really helps during the season when I want to hang and hunt and stay mobile. Just my 2 cents, hope it helps!
