Hunting in Kentucky: Online Resources and Mobile Apps to Enhance the Field Experience

By    |   Monday, 25 May 2015 01:36 PM

With the increasingly pervasive social presence of technology, hunters and state wildlife management organizations are beginning to incorporate tools that offer a greater ease of access to information for Kentucky hunters.

Geographically nestled between the rugged Appalachians in the east and the fertile Mississippi River in the west, Kentucky offers a rich spectrum of hunting opportunities and provides a wide array of technological tools and information to assist hunters in staying educated, aware, and informed.

1. Online
Kentucky's Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources maintains a digital calendar of hunting seasons on its website. With the use of Google's Calendar function, hunters can select a desired games species and synchronize pertinent dates to their Smartphone mobile devices, setting reminder alerts and email notifications in advance of a season's opening day.

The KDFWR maintains exhaustive and detailed resources on its website that range
from maps of management zones to information about military reservation deer quota hunts. The layout is well organized and easy to navigate. The state's site also provides a link for quickly locating the nearest firing range, and an entire page dedicated to wildlife management areas, hunting access areas, and state lands, with individual buttons for accessing directions to each one, and a thorough key that indicates the range of legal activities at each location. Also included are contact numbers for the closest Ranger station, park office, or county office extension.

2. In the Field
Google Play offers a HUNT App for Android devices. This program makes use of the device's GPS access and can help hunters find new tracts available for hunting. In addition, it can also identify the property owner of specific land tracts, making it easier for hunters to identify who can give hunting permission for the site. Sport hunters should be able to access full functionality and data in all 50 states.

Numerous additional apps are available to help hunters be successful in their pursuit of game. In 2014, Game and Fish magazine broke down the top hunting and fishing apps for the year, including one from HuntForce.com that works with trail cameras.
