“The new Rut Reporter app takes the best features of our Rut Reporters page and enhances them and makes them easily mobile so you can use them in the field,” said Anthony Licata, editorial director of Field & Stream. “Last year Rut Reporters proved to be one of our most popular new web features with more then 650 thousand monthly views. It has already harnessed the collective knowledge of our readers to make us all more informed hunters and this app is really going to take that to the next level.”

Field & Stream’s new Deer Camp app and website allows users to share deer intel on a social hunting map only accessible to friends of their choosing. Hunting buddies can use the app to pattern deer by creating a common map that can be updated with deer sightings, buck sign, trail-cam photos, and other observations. As a bonus the app automatically adds weather conditions, wind direction, moon phase, and other environmental factors to every observation allowing hunters to sort by this data later.

“A good hunting journal is one of the best tools hunters can use and our new Deer Camp app is a journal at its best,” said Licata. “This app takes the work out of the equation by letting you work with your buddies to amass more intel faster. Instead of spending the first few hours of camp around an old map wondering where the deer are you’ll be able to sort data according to exact weather conditions and more. And your information is restricted to your select group of friends which allows you to keep your secret hunting spots all to yourself.”
