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

By    |   Wednesday, 20 May 2015 03:02 PM

As time goes on, more people are unwilling to part with technology. Not in the office, on the road, or even in the bush. Hunters don't even have to leave their smart devices behind as they head to the duck blind or tree stand as there are a plethora of mobile applications just for hunters.

So, while hunting in Indiana, check out these online resources and mobile apps that enhance the field experience:

1. Indiana Department of Natural Resources Smartphone App

Designed for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources by the Indiana Office of Technology, this free app includes highly portable information including maps of DNR properties as well as links to PDF maps, a list of upcoming events, fishing and hunting regulations and reports, and plenty of facts and information.

2. HUNT App for iOS
The HUNT app for iOS by Xmaps requires a 12-month membership for $29.99 (as of 2015), but offers access to maps of public and private lands, labeled roads and trails, GPS, and the opportunity to contact landowners to ask for permission to hunt on their land.

3. GiveIN Game Program
The GiveIN Game Program website connects hunters who have an excess of venison with fellow Indiana residents who could put it to good use. Hunters and potential recipients sign up online and when a hunter ends up with venison he or she can't use or doesn't want, they can contact an individual on the list and give away their game meat.

4. CheckIN Game System
Another free online destination, the CheckIN Game System allows Indiana hunters to check in their game online, from anywhere, instead of at a traditional check station. Hunters just need an Internet or data connection, their customer ID, and harvest information. It's currently only available for deer and turkey.

5. Hunt Predictor
A free app, Hunt Predictor takes weather, location, and even lunar phases into account to predict when and where will offer the best hunting for deer, turkey, or waterfowl during the next five days. Already have the date, game, and location set? The app will determine what time of day will prove most advantageous for the hunt.

6. ActInNature

When hunting companions split up, ActInNature is a free app will keep them safe while they're apart. Live GPS allows hunters to coordinate their positions, track everyone's location, and tag and share great spots, all for collaboration and safety. It also offers weather forecasts and journal entries.
