MISSOULA, Mont. -(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is excited to announce a new RMEF layer in the onX Hunt app that assists hunters with public access and other helpful information.
“For years now, the team at onX Hunt has been ahead of the game in developing and translating technology into boots-on-the-ground knowledge for elk hunters. And now they’ve done it again,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing.
The new RMEF layer is free for those who purchase the onX Hunt app. It highlights access points to RMEF land projects including details such as project names, acreage, boundaries, managing partners, and whether access and hunting are permitted. Additionally, the layer features historic and current elk range.
“onX is very excited to continue our long partnership with RMEF by launching the new RMEF layer.” said Matt Seidel, onX Hunt product manager. “This new layer brings together all of the hard work that RMEF has done and gives it a visual representation. When you see the amount of projects and access sights on the map it really hits home how hard RMEF has been working for hunters.”
For a limited time, onX Hunt is offering a 20 percent discount to those who sign up to for an app membership, with a portion of the proceeds going toward RMEF’s conservation mission.

Randy Newberg, Hunter is in the onX Bozeman office, where Matt Seidel, HUNT APP product manager is doing a walk through of the new features, layers, and user interface in the recently released onX Hunt App.
onX has asked Randy to product test and work with them on designing more layers, new layers, that will help make E-scouting easier and give greater utility in the field.
Matt explains how the new features work and an overview of the six new layers. Each layer will be discussed in more detail in the next two episodes.
