The ultimate Deer Hunting App!
DEER SCOUTER allows you to log deer movement, establish deer patterns, fine tune travel routes, record tree stand sites, record where deer were harvested, record hunter location in the woods, and record exact locations of deer sightings and deer sign with a click of a button that automatically plots all of the information on a map.
◊ One click to plot points
◊ GPS and Manual plotting
◊ Current Location weather
◊ Wind Speed and Direction
◊ Add field notes
◊ Does not require cell coverage
◊ Data Sharing
In the past, in order to collect the aforementioned information, it would have had to be done manually through copious notes hand written in the field that would later need to be translated and plotted on a map of your hunting area. Now, through the click of buttons, you can stand by a scrape, a rub on a tree, a deer bed, or see a deer, press a button, and the information is stored in your iphone and overlaid onto the map of your hunting area.
As data is collected over time, the hunter who becomes the analyzer quickly starts to connect the dots and begins to make detailed meaning of the deer sign and where to better place stands or sits in the deer woods.
As any hunter knows, nothing will ever guarantee us the sighting of that deer that we are hunting. However, with the use of Deer Scouter, the hunter can potentially increase the odds of understanding the deer movement on the land that is being hunted to become more precise and then better predict where to be to potentially increase his/her odds to harvest a deer.
◊ Log deer movement
◊ Establish deer patterns
◊ Fine tune travel routes
◊ Record tree stand and trail camera sites
◊ Record where deer were harvested
◊ Record locations of deer sightings and deer signs
What's New in Version 2.5
Sharing Data - Now you can share your data using the new share feature. The share feature allows you to share all your current markers by giving you a unique code that you can give to other hunters to load your shared data.
I like it a lot, but I would add an "entrance to property" or "gate" icon as most of the time you need an app like this it's for people unfamiliar with how to get around in the first place. Also I'd like it to link up to maps so people could use normal map to get to property, maybe you can and I just can't figure it out, but over all I'm very impressed with this app.
Weather and Wind Don't work
I don't know what the deal is but the app doesn't display the wind direction or weather for me. It's disappointing because this would be a top notch app if this glitch didn't ruin it.
The concept of this app is great. But to charge $.99 to add a picture to my data, I find that sleazy.
Also the presence of ads in a paid app just seems wrong.
Save your money, and use a trail hiking app. Granted those programs aren't geared towards hunting, but you get more functionality and less advertisement.
