From social media to organizing your daily schedule, you can do almost anything with apps. The hunting industry didn’t take long to follow suit and carve out their piece of the app market.
After sifting through an endless amount of hunting and fishing apps for this piece, we tried to follow the road less traveled. The first thing we looked for was uniqueness. We tried to find apps that were one-of-a-kind, informative, and impactful to the sportsman’s daily life whether afield, afloat, or in the cubicle. The next criterion for the list was intuitiveness. If an app isn’t easy to use, it has a short shelf life on our devices. Lastly, we looked for apps that were useful. If an app doesn’t help us accomplish something, whether it’s wasting time in the waiting room before that romantic yearly physical, or deciding whether or not the conditions are right to hunt or fish, it doesn’t make the cut.
We have narrowed the list of useful apps for sportsman down to 15, in no particular order. While there was no winner, some of the apps on the list stood out because they are just pretty darn neat. For example, findmefish.com allows users to buy and sell fishing honey holes on the internet. OnXmap’s Hunt offers users a bird’s eye view of property boundaries and property owner’s names. Huntforce.com is a robust and powerful trail camera tool that gives a whole new meaning to game management.
Although these were just a few of the cool apps we came across, all the apps proved to be a creative, unique, and beneficial tool to making us sportsmen more lethal, or at least less bored at work. If you get a chance download these apps, do it. You wont be disappointed.
