ATHENS, GA (September 7, 2017) – The Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) is pleased to announce its newly improved 2017 Deer Tracker app. The app is available completely free of charge on both Android and Apple devices thanks to sponsorship by leading deer hunting brands, including Fusion Ammunition, Cabela's, QDMA, and Powderhook.
Users of QDMA's Deer Tracker app will find a variety of features focused on getting the information they need to have a better day in the field, including reports of deer activity in their area, public land maps, harvest reports, and more. Additionally, hunters can now estimate the score of deer in photos, receive push notifications for areas they might hunt, and view trends on an interactive heat map.
"QDMA's Deer Tracker was designed with privacy in mind, so hunters can be assured no one will know their locations," said Lindsay Thomas Jr, Director of Communications for QDMA. "Deer Tracker has become a must-have addition to any deer hunter's phone."
Tens of thousands of hunters throughout the country are already putting QDMA's Deer Tracker to good use. Cody Neer, a recent transplant to St. Petersburg, Florida says QDMA's Deer Tracker has helped him find new areas to hunt, and has even helped him choose the best days to take off work.
"My work has moved me to five states in seven years," said Neer. "When you move around the country, it really affects your ability to hunt — especially if you move away from family. For me, QDMA's Deer Tracker is a great tool for finding new spots and getting a feel for what people are seeing and hearing. It's also nice to be able to follow what's going on with the deer season back home."
"Hunters play the biggest role in conservation efforts across this country through purchasing licenses, firearms and ammunition," said Eric Dinger, CEO of Powderhook. "These days, a hunter may only have limited time to prepare for and plan a hunt. We want to ensure they have the greatest opportunity for an enjoyable time in the woods so they continue to carry on our hunting heritage."
QDMA's Deer Tracker was created by Powderhook, the app builder working to solve some of the outdoor industry's most important challenges. To view or download QDMA Deer Tracker, click here
