As hunting season kicks off, the ScoutLook Hunting app looks to offer more features for shooters in the field with the launch of ScoutTreX technology.

ScoutTreX acts as a digital breadcrumb, using a smartphone’s GPS  to allow users to track their journey on screen. Hunters simply tap a small boot icon at the bottom of their smartphone screen while using the app and press “play” to see all movements appear on the map in their preferred color option. The technology tells shooters how far they’ve traveled, average speed as well as the duration of travels.

“More than 1,000 new users per day are logging in and using our mobile tools to hunt smarter,” Josh Dahlke, ScoutLook’s VP of Operations and Content, said in a press release. “We take pride in keeping our apps clean—no gaudy, fluffy updates to clutter the user experience. A new feature was just added to our Hunting app that users will really appreciate: ScoutTreX.”

The app is free and available for download in both Google Play and iTunes.
