5 Best Hunting Apps/Games

When you’re not training your eye on the target, you might want to take a glance down at your phone or tablet to make use of some interesting apps, available to offer advice, information and fun for the modern gun enthusiast.

Below we have listed five of the best apps and games available on iOS and Google Play, so get downloading and you never know, they might even come in handy (as well as being a lot of fun).

Black iPhone being used

BASC – Members’ App


Available on iOS and Google Play

British Association for Shooting and Conservation members can get loads of news of interest to the shooting community with the BASC App. It has information on events and training courses and members’ offers. You can watch BASC films and check out seasonal guides and codes of practice. Search for BASCAPP to download the App.

Sporting Gun Magazine

Free App (£3.99 for single issue, free 30-day trial upon purchase of a £28.99 annual subscription)

Available on iOS

If you want to try this leading monthly magazine for clay, game and rough shooters before buying, download the app and get a free sample issue. Then you can buy it on an ongoing basis – if you like it – via your iTunes account.

Waterfowl Hunting


Available on iOS

Bit addictive, this one and fun for all ages. Shoot ducks and earn ‘duck coins’ – collect as many as you can to buy more powerful guns and beautiful scenes. Speed of ducks and rewards increase the longer you stay in – a real test of your skills!

TargetScan App


Available on iOS and Google Play

Interesting one this – it turns your phone or tablet into a Target Scoring System. Just take a photo of your paper target and the App will automatically calculate the score! TargetScan will also help you analyse your shooting group calculating: Windage, Elevation, Mean Radius and Extreme Spread so you can easily find out whether you need to adjust the sights or find out which pellets work best for you. If that tickles your fancy you can see it in action on a two-minute TargetScan Demo on YouTube.

Ballistic: Advanced Edition


Available on iOS

A bit pricey but for the serious gunsman it offers a seriously accurate ballistic calculator and range companion. With its advanced capabilities, Ballistic can calculate for atmospheric conditions and has a vast library of nearly 5,000 projectiles and factory loads, rangefinder, range log, and head-up display. Ballistic is a complete mobile companion for hunting or at the range.
