10 Best Mobile Apps for the Whitetail Addict

10 Best Mobile Apps for the Whitetail Addict

While enduring a long, slow, all-day hunt this past November, I remember spending a few minutes at mid-day scrolling through recent updates on Twitter, when I came across a real gem of a tweet.

An online comedian wrote, "Give a man a deer and he'll feed his family for a year. Teach a man to hunt, and he'll sit in a tree playing on his phone all day."


Wow. I immediately laughed out loud and realized that he had me pegged!



It's true, the smart phone has become a constant companion for today's hunter. On the one hand it can be a dangerous distraction, keeping you from focusing on the potential deer movement around you. But if used carefully and in moderation, the benefits of the smart phone and mobile apps for today's hunter are plentiful.

That said — and to make sure you're getting the most out of your smart phone — here are 10 of the best mobile apps for the whitetail hunter.



Mark Kenyon runs Wired To Hunt, one of the top deer hunting resources online, featuring daily deer hunting news, stories and strategies for the whitetail addict.
