Hunt App

This app allows hunters in the field, and before setting out on a hunt, to check ownership of land and property borders. The app uses GPS to give accurate information on public and private lands and hunting unit boundaries. It is possible to mark way points and hunting spots using photo imagery. Roads and paths used by hunters are on the app, as are the animals available to hunt in the area. The app also aids education and hunter safety by storing points of interest from a hunt for download and study at home.

HuntSoft App

This app allows hunters to log all data points for game spotted in the field or from trail cams. The app also logs all kills and links with sightings, enabling hunters to track and predict animal movement. Customized mapping of hunting areas is easily done by the app, and the hunter can add viewing spots, cameras, hides and other information. All information may be kept private or shared with fellow hunters using the social network tools in the app's community area.
