VIRGINIA BEACH, VA --(Ammoland.com)- Christian Anderson, a hunting and fishing industry executive, will speak during the OCEANS 12 Conference in Hampton Roads, VA, October 14-19, 2012.

The co-founder and CEO of Umaxoutdoors, LLC will discuss the use of mobile technology for better species management with this international gathering of scientists, engineers and responsible ocean users.

Umaxoutdoors is launching its HookHunt mobile application this month. HookHunt is a fishing app and a hunting app in one. This convenient mobile app allows anglers and hunters to capture real time data by simply taking a picture with a smart phone. Time/date, GPS location, lunar phase, tidal information and comprehensive weather conditions are automatically recorded on the user’s website. The user can then query his or her personal data along with global data to create better strategies.

Umaxoutdoors can share global data with interested wildlife management agencies. The data provided to wildlife management agencies will not include specific GPS coordinates or share users’ names but will allow agencies to pull information about a general area. This data could include information about how many fish of a certain species were caught within a specific time period.

“We’re very excited about our HookHunt launch,” said Anderson. “Soon wildlife agencies will be able to access timely information from our databases. And sportsmen and women can easily record information about their fishing or hunting trip and use that information to make their trips more productive or enjoyable in the future. It’s really a win-win for everyone who loves the outdoors and wants to ensure that future generations can enjoy it as well.”

The HookHunt app can be downloaded at the App Store and Google Play, Three versions are available: the Free version with one-touch photo upload, basic maps and weather; the Explorer version with more advanced features for $19.99/year and the fully-loaded Expert version for $29.99/year. Visit hookhunt.com for more details.

For a limited time, the Expert version of the HookHunt app can be downloaded for a 30 day free trial by entering CODE: free30.
