VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. –The outdoors is getting updated. iSportsman, the leading online recreational program management service in the nation, is making distant sign-in boards, manually logging harvest records in notebooks and never really knowing who is on your land or where they are a thing of the past with the launch of iSportsman ARX. The new digital land and activity management tool promises to change the way hunt clubs outfitters and private landowners manage hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities on their properties.
iSportsman is an innovative management solution, used to manage hunting, fishing and other natural resource-based recreation on military bases, state public hunting areas and national wildlife refuges across the United States. iSportsman ARX brings that same great service in an affordable, easy-to-use solution custom-tailored to the specific needs of private landowners.
Plotting and managing land boundaries, areas, tree stands, duck blinds, feeding plots and more is only part of the benefits iSportsman ARX has to offer. Using a mobile phone, hunters or recreationists can easily and quickly check into an area or stand for an activity and check back out upon completion. iSportsman ARX allows hunt clubs, outfitters and land managers to view who is actively recreating on their land, with whom and even what type of hunting they are engaged in. Harvest data is entered through iSportsman ARX by users so landowners, outfitters or club managers can maintain up-to-date, real-time records. The software allows clubs, outfitters and land managers to easily maintain records of harvests and finances, promote opportunities to other ARX users and even review charts and graphs that display hunting pressure and activity on their properties. Much of the financial and harvest data is downloadable to spreadsheets or can be shared with other stakeholders as needed.
Hunters and anglers can use ARX to collect and maintain data on each of their days spent outdoors reviewing the wind, weather conditions, temperature, moon phase, sunrise and sunset times, game seen, game harvested and more to analyze patterns for increased future success in the field. They can even manage all of their cell-enabled trail cams through the application, viewing photos and video from the comfort of their home, treestand or wherever they may be.
