Gear Junkie Names GoWild the Best Hunting Social Media App of the Year

Gear Junkie, a leading news authority on outdoor gear, named GoWild the best social media app of the year for hunters. 

“GoWild continues to develop and build out a social network of hunters and anglers, and its fans are diehard,” writes Hunt + Fish Editor, Nicole Qualtieri. “A focus on gear makes this app a hunting GearJunkie’s dream.”

GoWild introduced its gear feature, Gearbox, in November of 2019. The feature allows members to tag gear on posts and in comments as easily as an @ mention. Members can build wishlists, share their setups for individual activities (such as “Whitetail Archery Hunting”), find product reviews, tag gear to their trophies, and monitor prices across nearly 500,000 products. 

In addition to the robust gear features, GearJunkie highlights several other unique features to GoWild. The first calls out GoWild’s unique content, largely driven by the platform’s show, Gearbox Talk. Qualtieri also notes GoWild’s usefulness in connecting outdoorsmen and women to locals, a helpful tool for finding new hunting and fishing buddies. 

“This is an honor for our team, but I want to recognize, as Nicole rightfully did, the power of GoWild is our diehard members,” said GoWild Cofounder, CEO, Brad Luttrell. “I have yet to find anything as helpful as posting a question on GoWild when I want to learn more about an outdoor topic. Within hours you can have 20 friendly people giving you advice, and teaching you skills. This platform is special because of the community.”

The Gear Purchase That Gives Back

When members purchase gear through Gearbox, whether via GoWild’s affiliate partners or directly through GoWild, GoWild donates a portion of each purchase’s proceeds to the outdoor nonprofit, Raise ‘Em Outdoors. Every purchase helps teach a child to hunt, fish, shoot and enjoy the outdoors.
