As the deer season heats up around the country, QDMA and Powderhook announced new features to their free app, Deer Tracker, including location-based push notifications for inclement weather and deer hunting reports.
LINCOLN, NE (October 27, 2015) – QDMA and Powderhook announced today the addition of several new features to their app, Deer Tracker. A free iPhone and Android app designed to aid deer hunters in tracking deer observation and harvest activity, Deer Tracker now sends inclement weather warnings, observation reports and harvest reports based on a hunter’s desired location. In addition, users can now “like” and comment on reports and share links with each other.

As the waterfowl migration begins to heat up, Waterfowl Tracker announced the availability of location-based push notifications for inclement weather and migration reports.
Here’s how it works:
First users click to open the side bar and select “Get Notifications.” Then the hunter selects the city or state and the distance from the area they’re interested in. For example, within 100 miles of St. Louis. Next, the user can choose which notifications they wish to receive. Current options include; Peak Reports, All Reports and Weather Alerts.

My cares fall off amongst the cattails and cornrows
The air somehow different here, crisp with a hint of harvest
Whiskey smoother, too, me and Grandpa think
Finally away, though connected to time and place
Memories rush back, as we repeat them anew
My heritage alive with family, friends and pheasants
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. – John Muir
Over the past couple of weeks at Powderhook we have gotten a lot of great feed back from friends, partners, and all of our users which we took and used to make some cool new app updates. You can find these new app updates on Deer Tracker, and Waterfowl Tracker.
Ability to “Like” and comment on reports.
The “Liking” feature is a fun way to let other hunters know that you appreciate the information they provided. This will encourage them to keep making quality reports. The commenting is useful as means of information sharing. You can ask questions on pretty much anything. “What method were you using? Where you using any decoys or attractants? What gear were you wearing in that cold of weather?”
Receive push notifications.
Push notifications are going to change the way you hunt and receive information. Not only will you receive push notifications about app updates and general news, we have developed a system where you can set your own locations, radius and type of information you receive.
Set Locations: This will be your hunting location(s). You are allowed to add multiple locations to receive reports from giving you an immediate insight for that area.
Set Radius: In what mile radius do you want to receive reports from? You can pick anywhere from 10 miles to 200 miles.
Notifications: You now can decide what notifications you want to receive from each of the locations you have entered. You can select any combination of 3 options. The first option is weather alerts which will give you major weather patterns affecting your locations. Next you can get just peak reports in those areas which are reports that happen around the best hunting time during the season. And finally you can receive all reports within the radius’ of your locations. This is awesome for people who want to see every detail people have to say about your locations’ general area.
All of these changes are live on Android and the web versions of the apps. The iPhone versions will be available next time you get an update. Apple makes us wait 8 days before those can go live.
