The Quality Deer Management Association and Powderhook have announced the release of the 2016 update to their "Deer Tracker" app, a free program that allows hunters to monitor deer activity and harvests in their surrounding region and throughout the country. New interactive features allow users to estimate the age and score of bucks in posted photos as well as locate nearby public hunting land.
Deer Tracker is a free app, thanks to the partnership between QDMA, Powderhook, Cabela's, Hunting Lease Network, Fushion Ammunition and Yamaha.
QDMA's Deer Tracker app allows hunters to submit reports based on observed deer activity or deer they harvest. Based on this user-driven data, the app generates a heat map estimating the likelihood of seeing deer activity during hunting hours in a selected area.
Public land information is now free for everyone who uses the free version of Deer Tracker, where it was $2.99 previously to access 800,000 hunting locations.
Additional upgrades include push notifications when other hunters comment on your reports.
