I’ve used this app both last year and this year and trust me, it definitely is not accurate. Some days it stated it was good / great for hunting and I saw little to no activity. I own 200 acres with plenty of Doe, & Bucks, with little pressure from surrounding land. This year, very much the same. An example would be 12/29.. here in Alabama it rained all day and was 75 degrees. Deer cast said it was poor morning and evening. Rain stopped around 3, I saw more Buck/Doe interaction than I have in 2 years. I have a 9point on cam at 10:09 am, in the rain. Today, deer cast said good for the morning and evening and literally nothing moved. One button buck 5 min before Legal shooting time was up. Understanding, it is hit and miss, simply because we are dealing with Mother Nature and wildlife. At the end of the day, put little stock in moon phases, pressure and all of the things these “professional hunters” say... put the hours in, realize deer are always moving and have to eat. Keep pressure low and stay in the woods or food plots. You will see them. Save the money/time and do not go off of what this app says.
Used the DeerCast for times of better deer movement and weather information especially before and after fronts. Made it easier to plan hunts an kept me motivated to be in the woods. I was able to take a 144” 8 pt this season. Also really like fan share. Nice to see other hunters being successful. I think this promotes mutual respect amongst all hunters and our sport. 👍👍
It would be a amazing app for a lot of people if it were just a little bit more affordable. The average hunter spends anywhere from 2,000 to 3,500 dollars every year for hunting. And this is just one more cost that would be very helpful in controlling our deer population. But in my “opinion” I think getting our youth in the woods is going to be hard with all the high cost of hunting!
By far the newest and best tool I’ve added to my hunting toolbox! DeerCast is always on point on deer movement. I utilize this app to help pick the days I spend in the field, schedule my work week around the 10day DeerCast, and helps me decide to spend 4hrs away from my family hunting in the evenings or not...
Anytime the app has said it would be great for hunting I always see a ton of deer, any time it says it aim good for huntin I don’t see much if anything. The tracking diagrams are very helpful. I enjoy looking through the feed seeing what everyone else is getting around the country. I definitely recommend getting the app. I also recommend paying for the elite. I mean, come on, spend a little money for a ton of extras on the app? I say yes!! It’s worth it!
I like this app for quick one stop weather information. My only complaint is that that text and icons are too small to easily read, especially wind direction.
I don’t schedule a day of at work for hunting without first checking DeerCast. Nothing is full proof but this will not disappoint you at all. It keeps me out of the woods scenting up a good stand on a bad day. Highly recommend.
I really love this app. When I am looking for the best days to plan to hunt I always check the DeerCast first. I have recorded info for my hunts and my 13 trail cams to confirm When DeerCast says it going to be a great day, it is! Plus learn about the phases of the deer season and more.
I have had the app for a couple years. This year I decided to stick with it and pay for the app. In my opinion you can’t get a better app with the information alone that holds up to DeerCast. Having the weather and what the Drurys have put I to this is a tool that can add to every hunters advantage of harvesting a great animal. I would recommend this app to anyone.
Love this app I am able to plan my hunts and where I should hunt with the pressure readings and wind direction plus all the other helpful tips are a great help and useful tools when going after big white tails in the Midwest!!! Love it thanks to all at Drury outdoors!!!!
