Today, I want to tell you about a great find I made recentely. My find is a product and company called GameTraxx. With today’s technology advancements, such as trail cameras, GPS units, iPhones and Satellite imagery, we wanted to create a very easy to use but extremely powerful weapon for each outdoorsman’s toolbox. For years I have used paper journals, trail cameras, topo-maps and satellite imagery during my many hunting and fishing trips around the United States. However, I was only able to use these tools independent of each other. It was time to combine all of these technological advancements into a simple and easy to use weapon, hence the birth of GameTraxx.com.
They spent 1000’s of hours developing this tool and launching each subsequent new feature, ensuring that all the details were addressed properly to create a solid product for their members. The launch of GameTraxx.com came in November 2007, and they have constantly added to the benefits a member receives, while keeping the price at $29.95 per year.
Quick Overview of what GameTraxx.com offers:
1. Journaling Software for recording the events of when you were in the field;
