Sportsman Tracker

Sportsman Tracker is The Ultimate Hunting and Fishing Prediction Tool. sportsmantracker.com

What's the big idea?

Sportsman Tracker is a web based application which predicts future success for hunters and fishermen.  Through the use of an adaptive algorithm, Sportsman Tracker analyzes past hunting and fishing activities and generates best times and places for new outings.  Sportsman Tracker is simple to use yet intuitive and innovative.  We’ve got all the other goodies of a communal web-application too—locate, log, track, report, share, PREDICT!

Describe the nearest player in your field.

Cabela’s has a mobile app called GPS Hunt Pro which allows you to catalog your hunting outings.  It utilizes weather, maps, gear, photos, videos and more.  It’s a great resource for the hunter and it’s available for several mobile platforms.

How are you different from that player?

Unlike Cabela’s GPS Hunt Pro, Sportsman Tracker learns from your past hunting and fishing outings and generates new predictions based on your hunting and fishing locations.  Sportsman Tracker is not just a social logging application.  It gives back to the sportsman in big ways via predictions!

How does this idea scale into a big business?

The hunting and fishing industry is a multi-billion dollar industry with several new technologies.  Sportsman tracker will position itself to be the central construct with “connection points” for several of these developing technologies.  The potential is immense.

Why are you the one to run with this idea?

I have a passion for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, but I also have a keen understanding of technology and its role in expanding and developing industries.  I’m not a superhero, just a backwoods guy with a knack for computers.

What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?

We would love to experiment with the new Sencha Touch platform to create a multi-platform mobile application.  $5000 would go a long way in buying a developer’s license and learning the new software.
