Game Management Solutions has launched a software program for hunters, the Score-N-Store scoring kit, to keep records of all their harvest animals. It also keeps track of all the trophies and hunting trips.
The company claims that the Score-N-Store kit is compatible with Boone and Crockett, Pope and Young, and SCI scoring methods. It can measure typical, non-typical, gross score and net scores of deer and exotics and enables hunters score whitetails and up to 14 different species of animals including, fallow deer, blackbuck, axis, red stag, nilgai, and wild hogs. It utilizes the Pocket PC technology to record and score the harvest in the field and then synchronizes with computer for a permanent record.
The software maintains all the data for the harvested animals. Other features include ability to create harvest reports, a photo gallery for record and storage for contact information of other hunters, guides, and friends.
Mike Owens, co-owner at Game Management Solutions (GMS) said: Deer farmers, landowners and hunting operations have already discovered the benefits of maintaining detailed records on harvested game, and we’re proud to now make that software technology available to individual hunters who want to keep a permanent record of each trophy and the specific hunting conditions that led to their success.
According to the company, the Score-N-Store kit is considered by most industry experts as the most complete and ‘easy to use’ game management software in the market. It has also been endorsed by some of the largest game ranches in the country.
The Score-N-Store Kit includes a software CD, calculator, measuring tape and cable, B&C scoring directions in a zippered storage bag and is priced at $74.95.
In October 2007, the company’s rival Whitetail Pro Log launched a similar software application, the habitat and herd management system, designed to store and manage harvest data and surveillance images. Priced at $49.99, the program can be installed on a standalone computer and has features such as a photo gallery, ability to create/print reports and charts, and automatic scoring, the company claimed.
