Easyhunt.com introduces a new service for smartphones – a functional app for hunters that makes life easier before, during and after the hunt. You can invite hunter friends to the hunt, create hunting maps online and use them on your mobile phone, and even plan the season’s hunts on a calendar.
Launched in Sweden in 2009, Easyhunt today has more than 48,000 members in Sweden, Norway and Finland. The online service also includes an app that helps hunters organise a hunt, no matter if you’re a solo hunter or part of a team. Easyhunt.com lets hunters create maps, plan hunts, send invitations, gather statistics over harvested game, upload pictures and documents and communicate via a forum. The password-based security limits the information and maps only to those who are invited.
Before the hunt: Use the online calendar to plan the season’s hunts. Invite other hunters via email or sms and keep track of who is attending a particular hunt. The service also allows you to create maps of the hunting grounds and set stands, symbols and borders. The maps can then uploaded to a mobile phone and seen on the app, printed out or ordered in the tough, weatherproof material Tyvek.
During the hunt: Everyone on a hunting team can download Easyhunt for Android or iPhone free of charge and use the hunting maps to their own and other hunter’s positions in real time. This makes navigation a lot easier, and seeing where everyone is in real time also increases safety.
After the hunt: Use the hunting report function to create statistics over spotted and harvested game. The service also offers a photo album, document archive, forum and other useful tools that make hunting easier.
Easyhunt is completely free, but there are optional extra features with prices subject to the number of hunters in your group and the features you require.
