Spring is in the air and turkey seasons are opening up across the country. To help ring in the 2016 turkey season, the National Wild Turkey Federation and Powderhook have released Gobble Map 2.0, a completed updated and more robust version of the original must-have-app for turkey hunters. The free app is available on both Android and Apple phones.
Users of the original Gobble Map will instantly see a variety of new features based on user feedback – push notifications of area activity, harvest reports, liking and comments on reports, free public land mapping and much more. Original features such as access to reports of turkey activity in their area, viewing trends on an interactive heat map and tracking their own turkey hunting activity remain.
"Gobble Map was designed with privacy in mind, so hunter can be assured that we will never reveal their exact locations,” said Eric Dinger, Powderhook’s founder and CEO. “And with the help of the expert biologists at the National Wild Turkey Federation, Gobble Map brings turkey hunting to life on your phone."

"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."
Cabela’s, Federal Premium Ammunition and Mossy Oak, the official camouflage of the NWTF, also are partners in the Gobble Map app.
