Jeremy922 - Can’t beat it for the money
I use this app mainly for property lines and the mapping. Other apps are way more expensive a year for literally only one state worth of property lines. The 3D feature has to be the best thing about it, being able to look at a 3D map of the terrain in a hilly area really improves scouting. Only downfall is the map doesn’t show a lot of smaller creeks that are in the woods, but I can usually pull up google maps and it’ll show me if I’m really curious. I’ve never tried any of the weather stuff or go off of any of the “hunt predictions” so I can’t say anything about those. Truly if you want to know the weather check it on your phone and get out there in the woods regardless because it’s unpredictable. All in all tho it’s a very useful thing to have if you want to pay for the membership.
Vey Unhappy - So far not so good
I’ve had HuntWise on my iPhone for a few years. It was a free app when I started using it. It was also very easy to use and an almost perfect app for a hunter. I had 7 stands marked and could open the app and check all the stands for wind, moon phase, temp etc. in about three minutes.
But all good things come to an end. HuntWise started to “improve” the app and wanted everyone to purchase the new one. So they started to take away from the free one. This month I gave up and upgraded to the Pro. So far not impressed at all. From the pics on the come-on’s to upgrade I thought I would be getting what used to be free. Wrong! So far it is amazingly difficult to use. My original stands are on the map but not listed. So the only way to get to the stand is use my finger to move the map to the stand. Once there all that is shown is the stand itself, no wind direction....nothing! Then when I try to get a prediction the app immediately defaults to my home. I’ll play with the app some more but I doubt that I’ll be a HuntWise costumer much longer.
If they would get back to what they had when it was free, simple to use and very informative, I would gladly pay.
KABYAK - Best mapping app!
We own 20 acres in Oregon and I have struggled with other apps to map our trails and camera locations until fortune smiled. On a recent vacation to Lake Norman in North Carolina My wife and I met a man and his family at a local restaurant and asked what line of work he was in. He said he worked at Sportsman Tracker and then went on to explain a little about what they did. Later that evening I downloaded the free HuntWise app and wow! Free app was great and on my return home to Oregon upgraded to Pro version which is way beyond what I expected. Also did a little research and found out the “employee” from Sportsman Tracker was Jeff Courter the CEO and founder of the company! Great product, great “employees” and humility. Will be checking out your fishing app as well.
md0311 - Biggest advancement in hunting since guns
Explaining what I think could make it better is gonna be way shorter than my positive feedback.
The ideal wind directions could be spilt into 10 degree increments or so to give a more specific range for each stand (or atleast down to N, NNE, NE, NEE etc.) Add when the moon is overhead and underfoot to the moonrise and moonset times. And make adjusting the time on the predictions a vertical slider or something, bit difficult with the new iPhone being without a Home Button and having to use gloves in cold weather.
That is all I can think of. Literally wrote an IG and FB post to tell all my hunting buddies to download this and plug in their info ASAP. Great job guys 👍🏼👌🏼
Texashunter01 - Don’t do the update!!!
I used Hunt Wise a lot & liked it a lot until they pushed the “better idea” with the update. So I updated the app even this I was satisfy with the app before updating it. After I updated it, I lost about 1/3 of my hunting markers on my phone. I will not update the app on my iPad at this point. Both my iPhone & iPad were hooked together before I updated my phone app. I contacted the customer service & they worked on my problem for several days & then they stopped contacting me about the problem they created. I contacted them back & they asked for more info to try & find my markers. I gave it to them & never heard any more from them. That has been about two weeks ago. At one time, it was a good app. Now it won’t hold water. I will finally delete it at some point cause there is another that’s real similar that I also use as a double check.
@BackwoodsDave - Five Stars
I love the HuntWise app. The mapping tool helps me decide where to hunt on which day. It tells me wind direction and shows me which stand is best any given day and time. I also love the the tracking tool. I shot a buck on November 17 and was able to record our tracking path and mark blood. The app also shows land owner names and property lines which allowed me to know the owner of the neighboring property to call him and get permission to track. HuntWise is the ideal tool for any hunter. It makes scouting and preparing for the season easier, and helped me be successful in the 2018 hunting season. I recommend every hunter download it and start using it today!
Sweiss923 - Great app that you don’t have to break the bank for.
Most apps, if not all, have asked me for $30+ just to get some simple info for hunting. So far this app gives you everything you need in the free/standard version, almost more than you would get while paying for other apps. I love how easy to use it is and gives you so much info, I can track my stands, paths, weather, everything. Don’t waste your time with the other apps, I’ve tried them all. I also love the social part of it, sharing your harvests, info, tips, it’s great, and the shop has some great prices.
urban3316 - Unhappy
I’ve had this app for over a year now and I thought it was a great app to have for hunting. But now that I’m getting into full hunting mode this year and starting to use the app I’m finding that me pay $10 a month for the pro subscription is becoming pointless. For example, I’ve gone out and sat many times now based upon the movement predictions and times and honestly they a far from accurate especially since I just got done with an all day 12 hour sit and I saw absolutely nothing. I even talked with a few other hunters that hunt in the same public land that I hunt and they said they didn’t see anything at all either. Very unhappy with the app. Therefore I will be canceling my subscription and go back to hunting the way I used to by stepping outside and watching the weather.
jonathan 2005 - Huntwise Best App
This is absolutely the best app an outdoorsmen social media app an outdoorsman could ask for! First, the map features are absolutely great! Especially with the pro subscription! The community is absolutely wonderful and everyone is very supportive! The gear tab (where you can buy gear) is wonderful and useful! You can set a pin on the map for where certain things are such as stands, blinds, trailcams, etc. are at! One thing that would be nice is the ability to post video, but I still give this app five stars and a big thumbs up to all the people at Huntwise HQ!
Theamazingrando - Shady Business Practices/Information Collection
I can’t trust this app because of their shady web community practices.
Huntwise operates like a scammer. They post myriad "product pages" that appear in search results like a desirable product in stock at a good price. The purchase link says, "sign in to buy." You have to create an account--including verifying a live mobile phone number (a valuable commodity for them to sell; already associated with a product interest) in order to find out that the "product page" is just a link to a store somewhere who once had that product for sale. (They mostly seem to be dead links.)
After they have collected your information, there is no mechanism to delete your account or remove your information. You just remain a registered “user” (presumably improving stats for their funding rounds??)
If you email them to ask for your account to be deleted, they will remind you that their service (verifying your email and cell phone to send you to a discontinued Cabela’s product page) helped you discover new products. Sure, I needed to trade my identity to them to discover that Cabela’s sells jackets. That’s shameless.
I consider these guys scammers.
bcsanfo - Great product
Pretty great and simple to use. Ita
This is a feature request that is so simple and makes so much common sense that I thinkbit was just over looked. But On the feeds it would be amazing if everyone’s post included their geo location (state and county) and then I would want the ability to filter and search by those location. Some people do include their location but most do not.
Personally, I am more interested in the hunts that have occurred around where I live, I don’t really care as much about seeing ppl who made kills in Texas when I live and hunt in Kentucky. I would rather see how the hunters around me are doing.
mavo.-. - Amazing app
I love this app I use it every day and the only thing I don’t like is all the options/features that I’m missing out on because of the pro deals. I want all of my friends and others to start hunting and to help them they should start by getting an app to help them ,but the pro membership limits almost everything on the app. I’m only 12 so I don’t want to spend $60 a month for an app I only use on the weekends or in the summer I only have $60 period.
BrocEV - Used to love it
I used to love this app, over time they have continued to try and force the hand of the user to subscribe to their payment fees. Most recently they started blocking prediction info on certain days. So if you want to use this as a free app then you are now stuck hoping they don’t block the day you intend to hunt. I will keep this on my phone for a few more months to see if they correct this ridiculous update, otherwise I will utilize a number of other apps that provide the same info. I liked the layout of this app best but refuse to pay $4.17 a month to get a rough idea of weather/wind/barometric pressure when there are innumerable options that cost $0. Hope they return the access before next season.
Hawkeye Hawkins92 - Review
This app was helpful without subscribing. I purchased the year membership and it is even more handy than I expected. The only thing I wish to see that I can think of is a fishing calendar and prediction, if that’s possible. Also I’d like to see different icons for tree stands. For example lock-ons and climbers. All in all it’s a great app through and through. I once used On X Hunt and HuntWise is by far superior. If your all’s cost continues at $50 a year then I’ll be a lifetime customer!
leavehunter91 - Awesome app
This is honestly one of the best things to happen for hunting for me. It makes it super easy to pre scout an area and pre game where to put stands before you even see the property. The offline map feature is a life saver when hunting in areas without cell reception. Not to mention the property lines it shows and the owner of that property as well, no more asking every neighbor till you get it right, all that info is now at your fingertips. 5/5 will/would recommend
Nich & Co 518 - Overpriced for bloat and doesn’t work as advertised.
I’m not wasting my time going into detail again as the appstore keeps deleting my review but this app charged me $120 when I clicked start 7 day trial and the pro layers don’t even work and the rest of the features are either available in free version or just extended (like the 15 day forecast instead of the free 2 day forecast). Greedy developers instead of hunters trying to help other hunters. Got to love corporate america, the indians sold their souls for casinos and Jeff and the rest of the hunters sold their souls to charge some unfortunately low mental capacity individuals $120 a year for something clunky that used to be free. The good reviews are from before the update. Beware!
hudsonville hunter - For the little people too
As a newer hunter wasn’t sure what to expect on our new small plot of land (less than 8 acres). Since using this app (summer 2019) I have located 5 bucks and really able to identify key hunting features bringing my game to the next level. Might only be 8 acres. It marking activity has changed my approach instead of crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Love this app and it’s updates are always getting better.
paulzep2 - Improvements
Not a bad app would recommend. Hoping to see updates coming to the logging system. Wish you could log animals by Stand so you can keep track what was harvested and where on your property. Also wish it had an option so I could put where my feeders are located. As I hunt in Texas it is legal to use corn feeders. Basically if they could put in almost like a journal system so you can keep track of all the animals harvested by each stand or location on the property that would be great
all nicknames are taken 84 - Just so so
I like many things about it, but there’s a few I don’t. First, I’ve set an alert for activity above 81%, and I’ve seen predictions at 100% and have yet to receive an alert. Second, I don’t like that the 15 day forecast changes every hour. If the hunt cast is at 5pm and the prediction is 0% at that time, it shows that entire day on the 15 day forecast as 0. If at 6pm the hunt cast updates and the 6pm prediction is movement at 70%, it will change the 15 day forecast to 70%. So, hour by hour the 15 day forecast changes. Inconvenient when you have to click on each individual day to see what’s really happening that day.
Trey93020 - Good idea but...
I find all of the tools in this app very interesting but it needs some serious adjusting. The forecast needs to be tuned because it says that my house in Southern California has about a 65% of having moose at 1pm. The maps are also not up to date and show locations that I know have changed like lakes that have receded and dried up. I checked and it showed that my high school football field was under construction when it was completed over three years ago. A more accurate map is very important for what this map is trying to do.
Ragged_wood - This app and community has made me a better hunter
I would like to thank everyone at HuntWise for creating an atmosphere that has inspired me to become a better outdoorsman! From their algorithms that help me plan out my trips to utilizing the community to get recommendations and see others success. Whether you are a seasoned vet or starting out, having HuntWise is a must that will keep you active in your hunting lifestyle!
TopRomeo - Was great at Pro...
Really enjoyed all the features offered at Pro and for the price, it wasn’t bad but now there’s a new level to the pyramid “Elite” which cost considerably more. What happened to adding a couple new features and leaving the price where it was? Companies always have to 1-up themselves.
All that being said, at pro level before the “elite” got dropped, I really enjoyed the app and the features. Mostly climate accurate and I really liked huntcast and the ability to download maps for offline use.
Trapper James - Best Hunting app Available
This app is fast becoming my favorite go to hunting app. I love all the functions and options for scouting, and predicting weather. I only have one complaint, it seems that the satellite imagery is a little out of date. I hunt a place with a huge clear-cut that was cut about five years ago, and in the app it still shows it as being mature timber. Other than that, I love it!
VincPa151 - Field Test
I tried the free version during Archery and Rifle for Deer and found the Major & Minor peak times to be pretty close. There are other features in Pro I could probably use but it’s hard to justify for 2 months of use... maybe a 6 month membership would be better.. losing shared information during upgrades is tedious to say the least...
Nuthole09 - Love it
Have had Huntwise and onX both for a couple seasons. Had to cut one out to help the budget. Went with Huntwise over onX. I like that I can get the phone numbers. The satellite image is more clear. I think I like the offline map from onX better but maybe I’m using it wrong. Love the wind predictions. Use that so much to decide where to hunt certain days. Thanks Huntwise! Awesome app. Recommend for sure
Th3man1992 - Awesome app
Have been using this app for a couple years now and works great!! After some complications with my login and not being able to access my pro subscription I emailed customer support and they were able to help me sort it out with in a day!! After the great customer support I will continue to use the app for sure!!
tough trevor - Tough a Trevor
Hunt wise is great service.I am extremely happy with this app. I have looked up and down for an app that will give me the lay of the land because I do not know how to read a topo map this app breaks it down and spend it around so that I can see the ups and the downs so that I can locate the travel Corredor’s ! I love it and a shout out to Whs! I love every video you produce as well.
zach218590 - One week free trial
Gives you one week free trial. But charges you $50 after a week. I downloaded this app and ON THE X to try them both out. I liked the other better. I think ON THE X is better for waterfowl hunting. I got a notification through my bank that $50 had been charged. I contacted HuntWise. They were not helpful and told me it was apple that I had to contact for a refund. I was unable to get a refund from apple. HuntWise was unwillingly to make it right even though I caught the problem right away. It’s more expensive then other apps and less user friendly.
Ktreiss - Need more Location marks
I really do like this app so far, one of the better put together map interface, the only thing I see that this app really really really lacks compared to similar apps is the variety of types of points/mark you can put down, I use a different app for marking locations of sightings whether it be rubs or deer and Turkey sightings or whatever, if they can upgrade that this app is definitely worth it otherwise it’s kind of pointless.
JC Drones - Good but needs more
Two things I think could make this the best possible app.
1. Google Earth integration. You can’t beat the 3D angles Earth can provide. I know Huntstand has this layer option , would be great to have it here.
2. Apple Watch integration. When scouting and tracking my walks, I’d like the ability to make marks quickly with the Apple Watch. Just tap, scroll for the marker, set it, and keep going.
huntbig82 - Great all around app!
I don’t do Facebook because this app has all the things in it that I really care about! I’d rather see posts made by hunters and people who just enjoy the out doors any day. Love the way you can compare wind direction for stands. It’s a must have, and I use it almost daily. The only ding is the monthly cost, but all around just fun and worth it!
R&BStew - All the info you need
This is a very good app, it covers a lot of ground for a variety of species. You can customize it for multiple hunting locations in different state, if you hunt out of State like I have. Definitely worth trying it out. Like any app, if you want the better features you are going to have to pay for them.
73Power$troke - Love It but now I can’t use it!!!!
Love the app and use it a lot during hunting season. I’m sad now tho because since I did the latest update on my iPhone ISO13 the app will not work. It comes on shows the HuntWise deer and then says loading then automatically cuts off and goes out of app. Sure wish I could use again :(
dying breed sportsman - Excellent tool A+++++
Excellent tool with up to date information. I’ve checked property lines and owners against state tax maps and huntwise was spot on. Even more impressive is they had a more up to date database on land ownership. All the bells and whistles for stand location wind direction hunt logs measuring tools the list goes on. I’ve acquired 3 new properties plus tons of unknown huntable state property because of this app.
Jet rod - Satisfied!!
I have been using this App since it has began and each year I find it very helpful in my hunts. Specially when you guy the pro or elite package cause it helps on the maps and the hunt cast, they also have a fishing app that is very cool to. If you haven’t downloaded this app what are you waiting on.
uuuijtie - Out of date maps
I liked using the app even though the my location would be a little off from time to time. I even subscribed for the yearly fee but my biggest problem was the maps are more than 5 years old!!! I turned in tickets and all trying to get these updated and waited a month to no prevail. So I canceled my subscription and am going to try another app that’s more up to date.
KY Andrew - Very nice, poor map
I really enjoy being able to see a pretty accurate estimation of weather, wind, and barometric pressure for the day and its effective on various types of wildlife.
On the other hand; the map is so small that I always have to open another app to get a decent view of the land.
If I were able to move around the map and zoom out and had a 3D option, this would be a five star review
LegitHonestReviews - Love the features but....
The features and ease of use are amazing. However, property owners and google images are not updated in certain areas. I feel like being charged monthly isn’t very fair considering OnX Hunt is the same way and only charges one fee. (And with them you can just log out and sign up again with a new email for unlimited trials to keep it free). Why are we paying for outdated information?
Sparsebluper - Love the App - could use minor upgrades to make it easier
This app is fantastic, and the pro version is well worth the small money fee if you're and avid hunter. One of the things I wish it did - which I’m sure would be possible in an update - is the addition of an overlay for public / private land. So, public land might have an optional green shadow overlay and private an optional red.
Haggisdhkfafvjgdz - From useful to useless
This used to be a great app. Since the last “upgrade “, it’s completely useless. The mapping was never as good as HuntStand but that was fine. I used the other features, that were free and worked. Now the free version only has limited features, like the predictions, and they’re useless. Either 0% or 100%(not based on anything), weather doesn’t work. I have deleted and reinstalled several times hoping the limited features would at least work properly. They don’t.
Xtrek29 - Not enough to be a good app.
This app has the potential to be awesome, but the settings do not work when you want to adjust them. It does not show Game units. It only shows property when you zoom in very close. Public land and private land show as the same color (As in white lines and that's it). Makes for a very confusing and timely process to plan a hunt. Otherwise, it has a solid platform to become a good app.
Sgt. Hales - Rick’s review
I’ve been using the HuntWise app for for deer and turkey hunting for several years. I’m not as pleased with the new Elite as I was the free app, I use prior. On the 80% to 100% the app says go hunt even when the wind is in the totally opposite and in the wrong direction! Wind direction is vital to a bow hunter. The free app took this into consideration. When the wind direction is blowing down the nostrils of a deer, regardless of the rut, just hunt from a different stand or stay home!
HuntWise please work on this.
Thank you for your time.
Enobobino - Enjoy it
Its like the Facebook of hunting it has a wall almost where everyone posts their hunts and kills. Being able to map out your property is very cool as well. Also has a gear page and can give out forecasts. I enjoy it more than Facebook you can’t go wrong with it!
federalist - Not sure about this one
I’m on my first month subscription, and while there appear to be interesting features, as others have said many of the maps I’ve looked at are very outdated. It’s admittedly difficult to keep up with property boundaries, but if you are offering that as a feature (and crossing some of those boundaries can be costly), then current maps are needed.
Worden 45 - Wind direction
I’m not a pro member, but I do like the app. It does seem accurate.
Only issue I’m having is I set ideal wind direction, but it continues to say it’s not set. I set pins, have backed all the way out and reopened, it shows pins are set, when I open to see if my wind direction is set, it is, but on huntcast, then hourly predictions, it says not set. Is this reserved for pro membership only?
Jrfaulk716 - Used to be good.
For the past couple of years I really enjoyed this app. I would use it for most types of hunting but when deer season came in I would buy the pro membership and use it for the couple months that deer season was in. I realize that the company makes more money if they bill it yearly but it makes no sense for me to buy a whole year when I really only need it for 3 months. Very disappointed they changed it. Used to be monthly now it is yearly. Too much money to only use it for 3 months.
Reamer77 - Great resource! Needs map update
I’ve found this app to be a great planning resource with information that’s spot on for several of my hunting locations. The only reason that it didn’t get 5 stars is because the aerial map is significantly out of date. An update to that information would be greatly appreciated and most helpful.
The Bamajr - Old Data is NOT worth the cost!
Maps for my area (Southeast Kansas) are over 4 years old (could be 5-6 years old).
The implementation of the iOS photos app is piss-poor. Moments is nearly useless when trying to create and/or update your personal profile.
Sp123,. - This app has gone way downhill over the years (used for 5 years)
This used to be excellent in terms of understandability, usability, and predictions. However each year it undergoes a large update and each year every one of the things it used to be great at takes a major hit. This year I was forced to find a new app because it has gotten so bad at predictions. Right now I conditions are stellar (high pressure, cold front, wind etc) and it is showing 0.5 stars/deer for tonight’s hunt. Sad to see such a great innovative app go downhill.
NahbruhNah123 - Pretty Good App
Overall pretty good had the land I hunt set up in 5 minutes love the stand comparison feature like the land sale feature though I dont like how there is not a property boarder outline but that may be behind the subscription overall good app sadly had several instances in which the app lagged out and I had to restart but it loads up fast so thats good

sumsumdarkside - Not that great
Can never use it in the bush and doesn’t work without wifi .... always logging me off and ya it sucks would like my money back!!
JimmyTheRat - Awesome
App predicted 7am as best time in my area - bagged an 8 pointer at 7:11! Wind direction feature is a great feature.
write2petechan - 5 issues, with hopefully constructive input.
1) Performance degradation once I have a few markers and paths at a hunt location. The map starts glitching really bad. Needs serious performance improvement.
2) When recording a walking track, it drops often and loses the recording. Other GPS map apps don’t do that. Needs to be fixed.
3) Over reliance on cell signal, the app goes blank and unresponsive when cell signal is poor/interrupted, it should do better data caching, the app content shouldn’t go “blank” so to speak.
4) I can only speak for whitetails, but the HuntCast algorithm doesn’t take strong wind and heavy inclement weather into consideration, it should factor that in to decrease the probability during those periods.
5) Should offer more comparable level of content to Canada. I understand the Canadian population and market share is much less, but the hunting culture is strong in Canada and also many travel annually from the States to hunt in Canada. We are right next door after all!
P.S. how can I find out what is in each update? The descriptions for all the updates are still the same as it 2021-01-31.
Qwerty 9876 - Sweet little app. But...
I can never look at hunt cast, when I need it it never works, any day I’m not planning on going out it works fine, anytime I really need it. Won’t load.
JeffJohnston - Doesn’t work in Canada
Please add same features available in USA for Canadian hunters.
Fat Dahry - Sucks since update
I used this app last year to try to learn more about patterns. It’s explained things very well. The new update has decimated that use altogether. You pay $30 a month and it still explains nothing.
It’s fun to have to use to kill time in the field, but that’s about it. It didn’t accurately predict movement in my area at all, but it’s fun to look at the factors contributing to movement and see how it comes together.
It’s just a cash grab app and weather apps can provide the same level of detail.
I’m just stunned at the monthly charge for the quality it provides. I wouldn’t pay $30 for a lifetime subscription, that’s how little it offers. Paying $30 a month for sweet f all is ridiculous. Apple Music is a third of that and gives you access to almost every song ever. So for this overblown weather app a $1.37 monthly subscription price would be more approachable.
Slooshark1 - Disappointed
It doesn’t seem to work up here in Canada and doesn’t show any maps. I changed the units to metric in the settings but they didn’t convert. I paid a lot for something that doesn’t work and now I’m stuck with it for a year. Really disappointed.
12576864 - Hunt wise reveiw
I have requested a satellite image a long time ago because theres a cloud in the way of my stand and it never got done other that that its pretty good
Houndsman1 - Unhappy
Nothing canadian friendly with in app, 😡😡
Bochunk - Use this all the time.
A great app that is pretty accurate. Still have to play the weather. 😃👍
Mpremack - It's crap.
The old version was a lot better. Bring back the fishing side, colour base map, and add the ability to add and save tracks/trails to the map then this will be the ultimate outdoor app.
dah265 - Old layout better
I really liked the old layout. The new one is much less easy to use. I much prefer the old one. It would be great if it was reset to the old one.
Sinwagon73 - Locations
This is a good app
It would be awesome if we could share saved locations with buddies
New stands, blinds, deer sign etc.
Sweezer - Very cool!
Great integration of mapping allows creating favourite hunting locations and tracking of hunting buddies.
