EDGEFIELD, S.C. — Turkey hunters are now able to check turkey activity and sightings in their local area thanks to the Gobble Map from the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and Powderhook.
“Powderhook and the NWTF are working hard to provide some of the most reliable and relevant information to the modern hunter,” said Eric Dinger, Powderhook co-founder and CEO. “Hunters already can view public land property boundaries in their area and they can now research and provide information about turkey activity in their local area.”
The user-driven Gobble Map, released on March 23, through Google Play and Apple app stores, allows users to post and view turkey sightings with information about gobble frequency and size of the turkey flocks.
Users don’t have to worry about giving up their hot spots, because the interface provides anonymity and location buffering.
“Hunters play the biggest role in conservation efforts across this country through purchasing licenses, firearms and ammunition,” said Doug Saunders, NWTF executive vice president of marketing and development. “These days, a hunter may only have limited time to prepare for and plan a hunt. We want to ensure they have the greatest opportunity for an enjoyable time in the woods, so they continue to carry on our hunting heritage.”
ALPS Outdoorz, Yamaha, Federal Premium Ammunition and Nationwide also are partners in the Gobble Map project.
