anyone know anything about iPhone apps for hunters? Seems like there's a lot of games out there but I want something to track my waterfowl and deer hunts this season instead of scribbling each time in my hand written log/journal.
Search the apps market for "hunting" you should be able to find some journaling apps specific to your hunts. I have a droid and it has several, so I'm assuming the iphone would as well. There are hunt trip planners, journals, even apps with calls for waterfowl, predators, etc.
Check out iHunt Journal. I was looking for a hunting journal app and this one is great. I wanted to also leave paper and pen behind and start keeping a digital journal. It is powerful and flexible. The designer is about to put out a new release with improvements for waterfowl hunters. You can even attach a picture of the hunt. Really cool. Also has gps location built in.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
