Solunar Calendar – Best Hunting Times and Feeding

Solunar Calendar – Best Hunting Times and Feeding by Sergey Vdovenko

 

Solunar is the prediction of major and minor feeding and activity times of animals based on the influences of the sun and moon. Weather and location are also major influences in activity but are harder to predict. There are countless apps dedicated to this concept. This particular app is one of the best as far as ease of use and quick access to features.

This is one of my favorite hunting apps. Not only does it give you solunar information but it is easy to navigate and you can quickly switch between sunrise/sunset and you can look at future dates. Great for planning ahead for your next trip. Weather is synced when you have data access and it has a 5 day forecast.

 

Opening day of bear season in Maine looks great for the Ladies Only Black Bear hunt!

 

The app also allows you to add trophy pictures to the map, at the exact latitude and longitude of your hunt.

 

This app is avalible on the App Store for $2.99

 

There are two other variations of this app, the same information but with different themes.

iTrack Wildlife

One of my favorite things about being outdoors is finding animal tracks and sign. They tell a story, where the animal was, where they came from, where they were headed, how quickly they went that way and more.

In the winter it's easier to see tracks, full gaits of an animal and a little bit more of their story. Even the smallest animals leave a track in the snow.

Mouse and turkey prints

 

There are track books out there but black and white pictures only tell the story of a perfect print. To understand a print you need to see it in its natural environment.

iTrack Wildlife app has gone above and beyond the boring paperback books and has brought you they chance to have a learning resource in your hand at all times. With pictures of tracks in different environments, in different gaits combined with pictures of scat and even skulls, iTrack Wildlife is the ultimate tool for outdoor lovers. The app goes into in depth descriptions of the animals and will even show you simliar tracks so you can be sure of what you are seeing. The app even contains the Wikipedia page for each animal stored for use offline.

The app goes even further, teaching you how to read tracks and gaits and includes an entire page of resources in case you want to take your education further. The app developer is constantly posting new pictures of tracks on social media and his website. Please check out the links at the bottom of the page.
