Hi everyone- I'm new to the forum but I wanted to introduce myself shortly.

I grew up in New York, but live in Alalabama now. Grew up hunting and continue to do so whenever I can. I recently came across ScoutLook Weather in another blog and I've been using it ever since to plan before I hunt.

It gives pretty accurate weather information, tools, etc and the two creators are avid hunters themselves, which means all the information has been very useful to me.

I recently went bowhunting last weekend and using their ScentCone feature I knew where I should place my treestands. I like a challenge for sure, but weather is not one I want to bother with. Their app just came out (if you have a droid or iPhone) and I like that as well just so it's handy when I'm out in the field.

Where do you guys like to hunt? How do you prepare for the weather?

Hi and welcome to the site. Being old school I just step outside wet my finger and hold it up. Being as I am frugal I then look for someone to give a wet willy to so as not to waste the wet finger. Just kidding. Weather can be a friend or your worst enemy. However used you can make the weather work for you.

I've actually been looking into this, as well as a full-featured GPS app, since acquiring my first Android phone a couple weeks ago. Cabela's has one that I think is close to all in one that I saw. But, still researching...

For now, I pretty much just check the National Weather Service and/or WeatherBug before bed and then again when I wake up "just in case". I've never put a whole lot of stock into solunar tables and things like that... mostly just because I figure ANY time in the woods is time well spent. But, if I had an app that checked that sort of stuff for me I'd likely try to stick it out and spend a little more time in the woods on the days that are supposed to be better than others.

Me being from PA I will be out after the elusive wild turkey that our split season ends that day. Monday is PAs "buck" season opener for two weeks. Then after a short time on the 26th of Dec my favorite deer season opens for about three weeks and that is Flintlock muzzleloader season.
