ScoutLook Weather App - Best $1.99 you can spend!

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.........


  1. This is one of my favorite apps to use while I'm hunting or even at home thinking of my next trip to enjoy mother nature! The multiple aspects of this app whether it be the lunar forecast, weather, and especially scent cone, they all help to make your hunt more successful!
