Technology has taken us places we never thought possible. While I can do without a lot of it, there are certain things I've embraced, especially in regards to hunting and strategy.
A few weeks ago I downloaded an app on my iPhone called ScoutLook Weather App. The application cost me $1.99. Note -- I rarely spend money on apps!
I read through the description and a few reviews and thought what the heck, I'll give it a go.
Wow! I am impressed to say the least. The application is incredible. As a deer hunter, wind direction is a major challenge I face any time I step in the woods. I have found myself in the past moving stands based on wind direction, even after I have been in the tree for an hour or so.
With ScoutLook I am able to view wind directions at my current location or specific stand locations I have preset.
It's not just for the deer woods either!
My favorite part is I can view the wind direction by hour. Maybe a set I planned to hunt has a bad wind in the morning, but it changes later in the day. It really takes a lot of the guess work out of my game plan.
I have tested the wind direction in seven different stand locations and each time it has been 100% accurate! I was floored. I've even tested when out and about and it has been spot on.
The best part is I can view the forecasted wind directions for up to 72 hours!
My other favorite features include current, hourly and 7 day weather forecast. These show you sunrise and sunset times along with the moon phase.
With the money you can spend on equipment these days, I think it is safe to say this is an incredible tool for just a couple bucks... who knows, it might be just what you need to make the right call at the right time and get a shot at a buck of a lifetime.
It's all about the chase.........
