"This is my first year using DeerCast and it’s a game changer! Normally my seasons are hit or miss, but this year, using DeerCast, I knocked down a great Michigan bruiser. I highly recommend DeerCast be added to every hunting arsenal. It flat out works!" - Mike Francues More than just another hunting app, DeerCast is a powerful platform of advanced tools with one objective: to make you a better hunter. DeerCast was built to get you ahead of your game. 20 yards away standing broadside, the buck of your dreams stands relaxed with his head down feeding. Fading sunlight glows golden on his thick tines as your pulse races and you prepare for the shot. You finally caught up to your target buck. The moment is magic. The timing is DeerCast. Here’s what’s under the hood: DeerCast Forecast Powered by over 70 years of in-field, real-world experience from expert whitetail hunters Mark and Terry Drury of Drury Outdoors, DeerCast decodes deer movement. Using your local weather data and a 13-factor, proprietary algorithm that includes barometric pressure, the DeerCast Forecast shows you, out to ten days, down to the hour, the likelihood of deer movement in whatever area you select. Each customized forecast generates a unique set of videos explaining what factors are at play in your scenario, helping you get inside the brain of a whitetail deer. DeerCast Track Every hunter knows it’s not over until you’ve laid hands on your buck, which is why DeerCast is equipped with Track. See inside your shot with a revolutionary 2D anatomical deer model that allows you to toggle the exterior of the deer on or off, showing the skeleton and organ systems. Select your point of impact on the 2D deer and DeerCast Track searches an extensive database of hit videos, delivering only those that most closely match your shot. Each video includes interviews from seasoned tracking pros with over 5,000 tracking jobs under their collective belts. They’ll give their opinions on what you likely hit, if the shot was lethal, how long to wait before tracking, what to look for on the bloodtrail, and more. Recover your deer with DeerCast Track.

This app stinks. It’s slow, it freezes and it’s never right. I’ve seen some great deer when the app tells me it’s a poor time to hunt. If you try and use the tracker, by the time it loads your deer is already down.

Could be better

If the app would allow me to purchase a subscription I’d give it 5 stars, still some bugs to work out for Apple devices.

Everything is wrong

This app has the wrong wind direction everyday, deer movement forecast changes badly and is wrong literally every time. When compared to 4 other weather apps this one is consistently wrong. DO NOT use this app if you’re basing which days you take off work to hunt.

Love DeerCast

I don’t get the chance to be in a tree as much as I would like (work, kids, life) but when I do I want to maximize my time. DeerCast gives me one location to go that helps me better understand the when and why of deer hunting. Nothing is flawless but I’ve found DeerCast to be a good tool for predicting movement. Rut in northern Iowa is my vacation each year. Utilizing the tools for the past couple years has proven to me the DeerCast will be reasonably accurate down to the hours. I’m a data driven person so this has been a great tool. The one enhancement I would suggest is adding a personal diary where I can keep logs on my hunts, from deer activity, weather conditions, possibly even pictures, etc. Being able to go back and look at my historical information would be helpful in determining hunts in future years. Please consider adding this functionality as I believe it would add great benefits for your loyal users.

I can’t subscribe

I downloaded the app with intentions to pay for the higher package. I tried several ways to upgrade but when I press the package I want, nothing happens. I restarted the app, I reset my phone, and I deleted and redownloaded app.

Restore purchase doesn’t work

Loved the app last year got a new iphone and restore purchase button doesnt work so that makes this app garbage at this point.

Good app but too many glitches. Been trying to upgrade to the paid subscription but app won’t allow me. Trying to submit a support claim and that won’t work.

Very helpful tool

Absolutely love DeerCast. I’ve screenshot my daily DeerCast and hourly DeerCast since it first came out, and when I check cams, will match up the pics against that particular day’s screenshots. Very accurate! There may be some outliers from time to time, but overall, DeerCast has proved to be a very accurate tool and helps me to know when we need to be in the blinds/stands and when to stay out of our hunting spots. We see more deer, and have tagged out each year while using DeerCast. Several buddies will ask me when they should be in their blinds and when they should stay out. My answers always begin with, “According to DeerCast....” and they tag out as well each season. PRICELESS tool for hunters

Different information

Me and my buddy both bought the app, and plugged in the same town and it’s giving completely different information on what times to hunt are good and what times are bad. How does this happen?
