Every expert hunter and hunting blog is recommending this Map application known as onX: Hunt. It offers complete mapping capabilities along with full offline GPS support. What this means for users is the information from the 12 types of mappings (satellite imaging, temperature maps, hydro maps etc. ) plus live location, and it can be used in areas where no cellular reception is available.
