BIG-GAME HUNTING -- A new smartphone app for iphone and Android could be a boon to hunters tracking their hunting success with hunting diaries.

 “Deer Diary, the App for Hunters,” is partnered with a companion website, DeerDiary.com, which synchronizes information with the app.

“Deer Diary” lets the hunter capture details about a hunt, including weather, photos, notes and, much like Foursquare, allows hunters to “check in” at their favorite tree stand or other hunting spot.

The app travels with the hunter into the field, allowing him or her to access and record information and tap into the shared knowledge of fellow hunting enthusiasts.

Back at camp (or living room), hunters can relive their hunts and learn from past successes and failures, gleaning knowledge and tips from other hunters who have left notes in the app.

“Successful hunters know their surroundings and understand the conditions that make for the best hunts. With ‘Deer Diary,’ it’s easy to record these conditions, see patterns and ultimately become more effective on the hunt,” said the app’s owner and creator, Gus Saucerman.

“Deer Diary” is available now in both the Android App Market and Apple’s App Store.
