Apple vs android apps 4/5
Th apple app for IPad and IPhone does not have the same features that the android app does. On the android app you can click on more even though you can’t change it you can still see the information. On the apple version you can’t do jack. These need to be the same. A lot of us have different phone and want to share with out hunting friends but can’t because the systems app are not alike. Other than that I like the app. I have Both an android and apple product using HuntStand.
Purchase unlimited usage🙄 3/5
I’m not a hunter,so I only use the app to identify property boundaries and owners.
Every time I try to identify a property I get a notice that I need to pay$19.95 to get unlimited usage.Of course I’ve already paid $19.95 for unlimited usage and eventually it tells me that I’ve already paid for unlimited usage and don’t need to pay again.🙄
Just a waste of time and frustration with a pretty useful app
Great hunting App 5/5
I truly love this app but I wish I could email them or talk to them. My buddy has a android phone and has the ability to trace his steps but I don’t on an iPhone. That’s the only thing I wish I could get with this app!
Absolutely love this app 5/5
I have used this app for years and they just keep making it better. Keep up the good work and thanks for helping me hunt.
Lots of bugs. 2/5
By SurCom Tech
I use it to keep track of harvest. I add pictures. When I click on harvest it takes me to the wrong one. Makes it kind of useless.
Useful Tool! 5/5
I use HuntStand for property layout. It greatly improves my productivity in the field
Good but... 3/5
Can’t find link to get support on app problems. Harvests are messing up with wrong report for that date. Also, can’t select weapon from weapon locker-only have one choice out of three in locker. These problems need to be fixed. Overall, pretty good app.
Great app until you want to stop paying to use it! 2/5

Have to jump through hoops to remove it

Can’t imagine life with out it.
I’ve been using for a few years now 5/5
By Bde Sigo
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now and its worked well for me. The only fault I’ve found is that the phone app and pc app are not in sync for the Huntzone. You can have both open at the same time and they will predict different wind directions. This hampers hunt planning. I contacted Huntstand to let them know. They did not seem to understand the issue, but claim the phone app is correct. Since the phone app is the last reference before choosing blind locations, I have little choice but to trust they are right. Other than that, it works great and I will continue to use it.

This is an outstanding tool. Truly a must have for hunters.
No Property Boundaries & Developer Support 1/5
Last night all property boundaries disappeared! There are no boundary lines visible at any zoom level in any function of the app (they are available in my areas)
Purchased boundaries lines are visible but nothing else
I am disappointed with “support” regarding this issue and the issue below.
Standard answer is “reach out, we will help”. A person reaches out and the problem doesn’t get resolved or you get no response. I might add I have been a user since 2014
After reaching out to support on multiple occasions my problem still has not been corrected.
I was told by support that the issue would be resolved with the next update and it still is not resolved (almost 2 months later)
Wind speed and direction updates when it wands to..... not when I need it to
I have emailed multiple screenshots of the weather update problem/issue that I am continuing to experience and after 3 updates no resolution, no true fix.
I can have reached out as requested, with no results from the developer
All Wrong 2/5
After this last update your property info is all wrong. I rely on this info for hunting purposes. You have to get this fixed ASAP.
Update bug 2/5
Great app till it updates then erases everything you have saved after paying for this app it figured it would at least be able to save all your properties and stands you had marked before the update... horrible
Unable to get renewed. Very disappointed with inability to renew. The process to renew does not work.
Could be Organized Better 3/5
Hunt Stand is a fair GPS app, but it could certainly be organized better and has some minor annoyances. I have yet to find a GPS app as well thought out as Tremble Outdoors, but unfortunately that app was discontinued. All in all HuntStand works, but the downside to these apps is once you commit to a hunting GPS map to mark all your various sightings and waypoints you are kind of stuck with it, as it is very time consuming to try to move data from app to app. After Tremble folded up, there really doesn’t seem to be another good hunting app, and several I have tried definitely weren’t as good as simply using google
Maps. Below is a summary of what you can do with HuntStand and what could be better.
Features (the good):
+The property boundary tool is the main attraction for this app. They way it is set up does have a down side (more on that below), but it is very handy to be able to reference where property lines are for a limited number of properties.
+Categories of waypoints. Another upside is the pre-categorized waypoints. Again, their is a big down side to how they organized this as well, but generally speaking having categories of waypoints that are shown by different symbols is handy. It’s just not as handy as it should be had the designers put a little forethought into end use.
+Mapping/Measurement. The app also includes handy features like the ability to quickly measure between map features, and roads, trails, food plots, bedding areas, etc can be traced out or outlined using the drawing tools.
-As mentioned above, there is a very annoying downside as to how the “properties” are handled. I want to see property lines, but having to manage each property separately keeps me from being able to see features of adjacent properties on the same screen. One large timber tract I hunt is technically 5 different properties, and it isn’t uncommon to be hunting near the boundary of three of them. Trying to look up previous sightings and sign is a headache to swap in and out of each property to see these waypoints. If you marked a waypoint while under “Tract A”, for example, even if the waypoint was across the line on “Tract B”, will not be visible when viewing “Tract B” features. This makes it easy to forget when marking points to swap to the appropriate property, and later makes it easy to overlook these points.
-Sightings/Harvests/Waypoints- This arbitrary categorization is annoying. Each of these have their own entire tool within the app. Sightings and harvests are not visible on the map tool screen, and map tool waypoints such as roost areas, gobbling heard, scratch areas, rubs, scrapes, and other “sign” isn’t visible on the sightings screen. Meaning if I categorize a roosted gobbler I see under sightings, I won’t see it with other waypoints I marked under the roosted gobbler heard category. Seeing sign and sightings on the same screen is pretty much the whole point of marking these items so you develop a comprehensive picture of travel routes, feed areas, and sleep areas for game to ultimately plan hunts, and best manage properties. It is just unnecessarily annoying to artificially separate those into different tools under the same app. I really wish they would fix that.
Both of the above should really be simplified into one overall comment. The app should really have the feature to view all waypoints (including harvests and sightings) across all properties on a single screen view. The property lines are great, but that should be the only thing that changes when a different property is selected. The current organization is very clunky.
Some further wish list items for a hunting GPS app:
As I mentioned above, I really loved the Tremble Outdoors app before it was discontinued. It had several features that are rare for GPS apps (especially cheap/free ones). First, it had the capable of opening events such as a hike, scout, ride or hunt. As part of the event, it allowed you to keep notes and provide a summary. For hunting, this made for a great journal tool to record conditions, times, and thorough notes concerning behavior, sightings, etc. I used this for deer, duck, Turkey, and even pheasant hunting. Tremble also had a track feature that would record your tracks during the event. That way you could easy see the routes you took and it really makes putting things visually together for a property much easier. It also recorded how far you walked/rode, and the elevation profile, so it was handy as a fitness app, as well. Tremble could also be uploaded to Google Earth, so at least when the app was discontinued, I didn’t lose all that information. Tremble didn’t have waypoint categories, so all the dots could look like just meaningless blobs without the benefit of the category labels - so HuntStand does have the upper hand there. I would be able to pay decent money for a hunting GPS app that combines some of the features discussed above with a decent trail camera management tool, but out of the several I have tried, I have yet to find anything that works well in that regard. Hope this helps...
Very handy 5/5
Great app for hunters 4/5
This is a great app. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is somewhat difficult to use initially. I emailed customer support with questions -they were very responsive and got me going. Great value for the investment
Always make a backup 3/5
I spent wasted hours of time and miles walked scouting and dropping pins for them to disappear. The app is very convenient but make sure you backup your locations by also dropping pins on google maps or something like it.
Idk what happened 1/5
This is a 5 star app all day long. But it needs updated. It doesnt even work anymore. I tap it, it opens and instantly crashes. Please fix it!! I love this app
Apps crashing 1/5
By Unbelievable accuracy
App only opens for 1 second then closes don’t know what wrong.
Latest update is not working very well. 2/5
I’ve been using the app for years and I really like it. The latest update freezes and is very hard to use. When I click on topo, it zooms way out to a full usgs topo map. I’ve never had these issues before, so hopefully there will be an update soon that fixes it.
Great app 5/5
I use this app for all my hunting locations, because it seems to be the best of the two I use, only thing missing in my opinion is a tracking feature to see what your actual paths have been especially helpful in a new hunting area. Hopefully it’ll get added soon.
Topi is jacked 3/5
Latest update causes topi map to reset (zoom way out) when you try to zoom in close.
Best in the world 5/5
By Kale 898
One of the best in the world
Can’t open after last update
A hunters helper. 5/5
By GT outdoors
Although the title is “A hunters helper” it is really great for any outdoorsman. I use this app for just about everything I do while hunting. The best thing is it’s programmed for all types of hunters such as deer hunting it shows the wind direction and changes in the wind throughout the day, I can personally say it helped me this season I was able to get some great encounters with really big bucks after doing a lot of mapping. I also trap and when you have a lot of traps it gets a little difficult for some people to remember where they are. Another great thing about HuntStand is that if you have a buddy that you hunt with and he doesn’t know what stand/blind to go to you can send him a picture of your personalized map. It is also great for waterfowl hunters as it can also show the direction that they will most likely come from. Hopefully you will also enjoy this app as much as I and have learned something in this article. It’s a great app.
Won’t work anymore 1/5
Every time I open my app it just exits out within 5 seconds. I’ve always used this app and it just started happening
Pretty all inclusive 5/5
I use the app for land management and hunting harvests. Orchard planned, wild persimmon marked....it's a pretty inclusive app for working land.
In 2019, I added my first lines. I have no cell coverage but could still add markers to draw connections later and was able to use the ‘trace’ feature to add a long UTV trail. One more creek to draw and then I will try the printed map!!
Sharing the map with friends makes stand assignments easy.
I read about OnX in all of the deer magazines. HuntStand was much more intuitive when comparing the free versions.
The satellite is dated but appears to be the same as Google Earth. Hopefully that will update soon.
By Badlands Sitka Savage
This app is the best I have ever had and I have had a lot of them.
Great App 4/5
By MJS tiger wolf 05
I love the app, it is practical for the everyday hunter. One problem is that when I harvested a doe on the last day of deer season, I put the date as Dec 31st 2018 and it said Dec 31st 2019. Why does it do that?
Great app .... untilllll 3/5
Tried to update and it’s just been spinning for two days
Sweet I love it know I don’t get lost in my back yard
I got a new phone I’ve paid for my membership and it won’t restore my purchases how do I fix it
Accurate App 5/5
By MP / Fla
This app is very easy to navigate through. The weather updates are spot on showing wind direction and hunt zones.
5 star 5/5
I love this app . I have hundreds of hours invested. Many different hunt areas all across the mid west . When doing your homework for the next hunting season don’t be stupid, get HuntStand!!
All my data was deleted 1/5
I’ve been using this app for 3 years and have loved it. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into documenting and journaling all of my deer sightings and really compiled a substantial amount of data that has helped me improve my knowledge of the deer herds on my farm and what they’re going to be doing.
The latest update just deleted all of my data. I will not be using this app again unless they can somehow get my data back. DONT TRUST THIS APP
Great for deer, only average for waterfowl 2/5
By Navy cutter
This app is great for deer and Turkey but needs some work to be great for waterfowl hunting.
1. There are no map tags for waterfowl hunters. Needs pins like permanent blind, species of waterfowl sighted, public boat ramps, etc.
2. Needs a mapping feature that allows you to tag a permanent blind and put a circle around it to indicate distance. In Virginia you have to be at least 500 yards from another tagged blind. Please add the ability to put a radius around a tag and the ability to change the size of the radius to meet local ordnance.
3. States that allow permanent blinds, also require the owner to submit gps coordinates with the registration. It would be awesome if you could link up with the game and fisheries departments and get those coordinates and have that as a map layer. That way hunters would know exactly where current blinds are located and where it's legal to hunt or set up a floating blind. Right now the only way to do this is to boat up to the blind, tag it, then drive away and use linear distance and gps to find a spot. This is really tough to do during season when blinds are in use and in areas with multiple blinds.
4. The map refreshes too much when zooming in and out. Need a way to highlight an area and get full resolution map data so you can zoom in and out even when you have no signal. Very necessary when hunting the big water because you need to zoom in and out constantly to get on target at 0430 when it's cold and dark.
5. Need a way to link duck sightings, location, flight direction with the weather that day. Being able to drop a marker and have the app automatically tag the current weather conditions, sunrise, water temp, etc. That existed when the pin was placed. It could then go into a journal feature of the app that you could pull up later. This would really help with learning the habits of local birds and hunt planning.
Add these features and this will be the best waterfowl hunting app out there and I'll change my rating to 5 stars.
Best tool 5/5
HuntStand is the best tool a hunter could possibly have during the hunting season.
Easy use but. 4/5
It’s easy to use but when I try to use the tool to measure distance it keeps using yards instead of feet. I only wish they had a better way. Otherwise a good app.
Hunt stand app 5/5
Best app I’ve got on my phone and to be free , it’s just great!!Katekelly
Dates on harvests 5/5
Any way you can add older dates before 2014 so I can properly add previous harvests to my map? This would be great!
Useful Tool 3/5
By Scout Track
Hunt Stand is a great tool to manage and understand the areas you hunt. The satellite views and topography views may open areas overlooked. That said using it is painful the operations are not apparent, there is no help or directions, sharing and other features are difficult if not impossible to figure out. In short a helpful app that frustrates just trying to use it.
Good Stuff 5/5
By Hx Tx
My only regret is that it doesn’t have more flexibility in the choices for markers and icons. For instance, I’d love to be able to mark my gun range, spots or areas that might be useful or noteworthy for future development of food plots, corrals, blinds, tanks, and so on.
Were those very simple and easy needs met, I could much better use the software for hunting and general planning and use for my ranch both for hunting, future cross fencing and/or repairs; basic general hunting, ranching, and land use and related planning, capex, chores, and budgeting.
Update the map 5/5
I think you need to update the map because it is like two years old and I don't even show my house
By Buy a map to
HuntStand is the very best hunting map / property management app out for the price.
I only gave it 4 stars is because you can’t filter out pins from year to year. If I want to filter out pins from May 1, 2015 to Nov. 1, 2017 you can’t. You can only filter pins from the start of the present year to the present date.
The mapping is very accurate and navigating the app is very easy.
Excellent App 5/5
I even love the ads that will pop up. This app makes planning my hunt a lot easier. I used to take an entire fanny pack full of stuff to do what this app does in seconds.
I will not ever be without it.
The one and only thing that could be improved is the wind direction forecast. I've found it to be off somewhat. Five star app no matter.
