Having an Iphone with me at all times in the field has some ups and downs… Luckily I know how to hit the ignore button and keep it on vibrate when I am hunting.  The good news though is that there are finally some great applications coming around for hunters and the new Wind Meter APP is just one of those APP’s that can make a difference for you as a hunter and at the great price of $0.99 it is priced right and works quite well.

The Wind Meter APP is easy to use and can help you determine wind direction as well as the speed of the wind.  This can really assist in understanding how best to place your stands as well as where to hold when placing that shot on a trophy animal.

1. Super Convenient

2. Real Time Wind Reporting – no cell service needed, it works even when out of cell range.

3. Ultra Inexpensive for a Wind Meter APP- Most commercial wind meters run $75- 150.00

4. Forces you to be more aware of wind direction because you have to point the microphone into the wind to get an accurate reading.

5. Just plain good old fun…it is great fun to challenge your hunter friends to “guesstimate” the wind speed and find out who’s the closest.
