Learn and perfect your shot placement with this fully interactive 3D simulator. The DDH Shot Simulator provides you a look inside the deer and the trajectory through the vitals.
Detailed instructions based on your arrows flight path in the simulator give real world instructions on how to best track and recover your deer. This is NOT a game... it's a tool for the serious hunter.
Highly educational. Wrong category. Not a game.
Excellent hunter resource for 3D whitetail anatomy. I've not found anything like it anywhere else. Move 3D orientation to anticipate where a deer may be, take a shot, and peel back the layers of hide, bone and internals to see where/what you hit. Move the 3D model around after the shot to see arrow path from other angles. Tracking instructions tell you what you hit, what kind of blood you will encounter and give waiting and tracking tips. Very helpful on understanding where to aim to get the double-lung shot without hitting the scapula. 3D controls take a little time to get used to, but not too bad.
A valuable addition for hunter post-shot evaluation would be the ability to set the tree stand height and range (i.e. 20ft at 25yards) so the angle above horizontal was fixed, allowing only to change the deer orientation (i.e. quartering-to, broadside, quartering-away). It's hard to judge the vertical angle above horizontal from the iPhone screen.
A little pricey, but worth it to me.
Initially I thought this app would be fun to fool around with and learn a little bit. It turns out my 12yr old prefers this to Angry Birds among all other game apps! He spends a lot of time on this app learning and showing ME a better shot.
The amount of angles and detail with each shot are extremely helpful. It's tough for bowhunters to admit you learned something (because we already know all!) but I am thankful to be using this one. The more you use it, the more it become 2nd nature to know precisely where you're going to place the arrow.
While taking an actual shot and an animal is a little diff't than using this app, you'll no doubt be more confident and educated about making a good shot become an excellent shot.
MUCH cooler than I thought..... AWESOME
At first it confused me a little because I fired an arrow when it started up. I finally figured out to turn off the tracking icon since I shot into the dirt. After I figured that out.... it's AMAZING what this app does. You slide your finger to move the deer 360 and then tap the spot on the deer you want to shoot. simple & smooth. YOU CAN ZOOM INTO THE DEER GUTS AND SEE YOUR ARROW PATH....I can't wait for hunting season to use this in my treestand. They say it's not a game but I can't stop taking shots and guessing what I hit before I peel the skin off. It's really cool and simple.. on second thought..don't buy this I want to be the only one with it
If you hunt.... get this app...
