They have put together a great technology with an extremely scalable platform. Sportsman Tracker is perfectly positioned to break into the hunting and fishing industry to establish an entirely new brand.

Sportsman Tracker aims to utilize an adaptive algorithm to analyze locations of hunters and anglers and the species which they hunt, and gives them predictions about the animals’ behavior patterns. The Sportsman Tracker app will feature individual dashboards, log activities, analytical reports, and photo galleries.
Jeff Courter, Founder and CEO of Sportsman Tracker, told reporters how his app will enhance the angler’s and hunter’s experience, making it a “must-have addition to a hunting or fishing trip.”
