1. HuntWise

Powerful weather, maps, and community

Yes, this is our software platform.  Nonetheless, we believe strongly that the first app that should be on this list is HuntWise.  The app is powered by HuntCast, the most advanced prediction and best times forecast that is available in the app stores. 

Other features include: 

- A pro-hunting social network that allows users to share success photos and hunting strategies. 

- Hunting maps with a tracking feature that allows you navigate to hunting spots and see your location on the map in real time.  This is helpful in low-light conditions or when scouting/hunting unfamiliar property.

UPDATE: We now offer a Pro Subscription that displays public/private property lines with land owner names for every state.  This is a must for hunters that are looking for new hunting opportunities. 

You can check out the many features on the site but keep in mind, we built it after reviewing everything that is currently available in order to give you a better product and to do it for free. Enjoy!
