TU members get discount on onX app

At TU, we’re strong believers in public lands. We see these lands as a legacy for future generations and a keystone in our efforts to protect, reconnect, restore and sustain coldwater fisheries across America. These are your lands and waters, to hunt and fish and hike and enjoy within the limits and the laws of the land. What if there was an app for that?

Well, there’s a company who not only makes that app, but supports our shared right to use those public lands. Here’s a quote from that company:

“As a company that prides itself on providing a means to accessing public land across the country, onX is adamantly opposed to any transfer, sale, or other action which would jeopardize the public’s opportunity to experience these lands.”

That’s the company – onX. They’re in Missoula, Mont., and they’re a TU Business member. And they’re in the business of helping you legally access public lands across America. You can use it from your desktop, your mobile device or your GPS. I’ve used one for years, and I’m a believer. At the risk of resurrecting an old cliché, I don’t leave home without them.

Let’s say you want to check out places where you can legally access your favorite stream. It’s simple with onX. Do your initial scouting from your desktop. Identify the public lands you can reach from a public road. Then use the onX app on your phone or your GPS to give you step by step location information as you make your way to that honey hole. It’s so easy even I can do it.

And here’s the best part: TU members and supporters get 20 percent off on onX products. Just go to www.onxmaps.com and choose your maps, then enter the discount code “TROUT” at checkout. In addition, they’re offering 50% savings for any chapter leaders that would like to buy their chips or apps for their banquets as give-aways or auction items.

I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year than easy access to millions of acres of public lands in America.

OnX is a proud TU Business member.
