Smartphone Mania

Turning the dead weight of your phone into something worthwhile.

S4Gear makes a smartphone mount for your bow called the JackKnife. This makes it possible to capture video of your shot with your phone camera. Speaking of a smartphone, the ScoutLook Hunting Weather and DeerLog apps are built for hunters. Both include a ScentCone feature, which allows you to mark treestand locations on Google Maps and view a precise, hour-by-hour wind forecast for 72 hours into the future.

The DeerLog app allows hunters to track deer sightings with technology that links current weather conditions, moon phase and position for each encounter. Your personal data can be charted on the ScoutLook website. For a hunter willing to use this system, the potential exists to predict deer movement times and stands with the highest probability of helping you fill your tags.
