Are you a hard core dedicated deer hunter? Well now there is an App for that. It’s called ScoutLook. Do you have multiple tree stands or different properties in which you can hunt? Well this app will help you to determine which stand you should be hunting from. This app uses Google earth and the first thing you need to do once you download this app is mark you stand locations. You just need to go to each of your stand locations and just hit the Current Location button and that’s it, your stand is marked.
When you step outside to go to your tree stand you are already thinking about which stand should I hunt. Where I live and where my two hunting properties are, are 30 minutes and 1 hour away. So just because the wind is blowing one direction at my house, the wind could be blowing differently at my tree stands. So now when I wake up I open my ScoutLook app to help me see what the weather is doing there. You just need to find which stand you would like to hunt under your “Locations” and click it. It will bring it up and give you the temperature and wind speed and direction at that exact moment. So if the wind direction is wrong for that location, click on a different stand. But if that’s the one you want to hunt you can open that stand location it give you so much more. Things like sunrise, sunset, solunar times (peak game activity). Also under that specific stand location it gives you the weather details like wind gust, direction of wind, barometric pressure, percentage of cloud cover. As well as your current weather and solunar times it gives you a 72 hour forecast with all the details.
This app doesn’t just mark tree stand locations. Bedding, their food source, scrape/rub, blood trail, trail crossings, or where you found a shed antler are just a few things that you can mark other than stand locations.
But you can take this app one more step. And that’s by downloading the ScoutLook DeerLog app. This app can help you manage your deer herd. If your sitting in your tree stand and you see a buck that you have named and he wont commit to you after he is gone log this deer. When you go to log a deer in, it marks which stand you were in, date and time, current weather temperature, wind speed and the lunar phase. You can also enter how many deer were with him, number of points he has, what he was doing as far as breeding, browsing, cruising, grunting and the list goes on. And after you have entered several deer it will give you your buck to doe ratio. For more information go to www.scoutlookweather.com. So if you were thinking about this app and wasn’t for sure I hope that I helped you decide. Safe and Happy Hunting!!
