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.
“Peak Reports” delivers notifications of peak migration activity in the area. This might be useful for hunters trying to time that extra day off. Or, it can serve as an update on how hunting is going in a region north of that hunter.
“All Reports” generates notifications based on observation and harvest reports of any kind. This would be most useful for the waterfowl junky out there who wants to keeps tabs on all the activity they can in a certain area.
“Weather Alerts” notifications save the hunter a bunch of time. When an area of interest is under a winter storm or other inclement weather warning, the hunter gets a notification. An example of this being useful is tracking the weather in a region a hunter’s birds usually migrate from.
Lastly, hunters can toggle on or off the general notifications all users get. As an example, Powderhook plans to send a push notification to users each time an update to the app is available.
