Sportsman Tracker Launches #Whyihunt movement

Social Media Campaign Invites Hunters to Share Personal Stories and Photos

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (December 11, 2015) - Sportsman Tracker, the ultimate hunting and fishing app that helps over half a million outdoor enthusiasts predict when and where to hunt or fish, today announced the launch of its Why I Hunt (#WhyIHunt) grassroots movement to unite and engage the global hunting community and to celebrate the great outdoors through an ongoing social media campaign. Hunters are encouraged to join the digital conversation and share their personal accounts and photos that reflect the reasons why they hunt at whyihunt.org. Participants can also take part in the campaign by using the hashtag #WhyIHunt on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

“Every hunter has those special moments out in the woods that are even more meaningful than getting that buck of a lifetime,” said Jeff Courter, co-founder and CEO of Sportsman Tracker. “This is all about their side of the story, sharing memories and spreading the message and embracing the deeper, more profound reasons why they love the outdoors.”

To kickoff the #WhyIHunt campaign, Sportsman Tracker has produced an official Why I Hunt music video performed by Nashville recording artist Riley Anglen. The video weaves back and forth between Anglen performing nostalgic hunting footage and other hunters’ testimonials on why they hunt.

“Hunting’s been passed down from generation to generation, and it’s a part of me and my DNA. My dad taught me at a young age, and his dad did the same for him,” said Anglen. “These are the reasons why I hunt, and the #WhyIHunt campaign exists to encourage both the young and old to enjoy the outdoors and to create the special memories that last a lifetime.”

Sportsman Tracker provides cutting-edge hunting and fishing tools for predicting the best time and day to hunt or fish. The new mobile app for iOS and Android features the most accurate and advanced prediction formula available to track and forecast peak wildlife activity times for over 200 different species, to log fishing and hunting experiences and to connect with friends to share photos and successes.
