Hunting is one of humanity’s oldest professions and pastimes. Previously, people survived on nothing but sharpened rocks and their own wit. However, nowadays, we have much more modern devices in our toolbelt. Here are some apps that have transformed the world of hunting and made it easier for the modern-day hunter.
ScoutLook Hunting: Weather
ScoutLook Hunting is a free map-based app that provides all the weather-related information a modern-day hunter needs. This includes cloud cover, precipitation, wind activity, and sunrise/sunset times. It also includes ScoutLook’s ScentCone, which helps you see where your scent will blow hour-by-hour so that you can plan the perfect hunt. With the app, you can also save hunting locations and equipment information, such as trail cameras, blinds, and anything you need to catch the big game.
Where to Hunt
Much like Yelp or Facebook, “Where to Hunt” allows hunters to “check-in” and display your location on a map. This is useful because it allows you to claim your spot and also determine ahead of time if there are any other hunters in the area and whether or not you’d like to set up somewhere else. You can also use the private function of the app to keep track of people in your hunting party to ensure everyone can find each other in the event of an emergency.
Find My Tent
So, you just bought a new hunting tent for the winter season and pitched it up before you went hunting. However, you started tracking a deer and completely lost track of time, and your tent. Now with Find My Tent, you can be sure to always find your way back to your tent. Simply save the location of your tent and when you need to return, hit “Find My Tent”.
Hunting Light and Blood Tracker
The Hunting Light and Blood Tracker app provides two features in one. The first application provides users with a flashlight with different filters for a range of situations. There is a red light for stealth mode, green for night vision, blue to make green objects stand out, and the regular white light for use as a standard flashlight. The second tool is a blood tracker that can help you trail a wounded animal. It can show you what tracks from common animals look like so that you can identify the tracks and determine if you want to follow the trail.
Be sure to download these apps prior to your next trip and you’ll be catching the big game with ease.
