Duck Master Lite the Hunter’s ID quiz game is the first in a planned series of quiz games that challenge the skills of hunters and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. The game offers the player the choice of identifying ten, twenty or forty different species of waterfowl in a time frame. Players are given a range of features designed to help them improve their experience. New levels for this game are currently under development with an expected release date of mid February 2013. Several additional quiz games will later be combined into one large game known as “Hunt Master”.
Steve began creating apps in October 2011. His first app, “My Duck Log” has over 5000 downloads and is enjoying continued growth as he consistently responds to his users input and looks for ways to give his customers increased value.

The site also offers many other features including galleries, forums, stories and support of the apps.
