Acquiring quick knowledge of properties around you while scouting on-the-go is essential. This is especially true in the middle of farm country, which is often dotted with a patchwork of fields and woodlots, with numerous landowner fences joining at the corners. Modern hunting apps can help sort out who owns what. The best include everything from property ownership details to hunting aids that add graphics, plus scouting notations to satellite imagery.
