    I have both, and use Huntbuddy for regs as it’s easier to navigate, and iHunter with the private land maps for picking my way around private property.
    If were not supposed to eat animals, how come theyre made out of meat?

    Do you find the private maps useful? I have to say, often the private ranch land is actually adjacent to their public grazing lease and it seems that lease also shows up on there as private land, so knowing where the actual property line is seems almost impossible.

    Do you have some tips around this issue? Because I'm fairly certain the private land shown extends much further than the actual private land of a certain ranch/area

    Im far from an expert, but where Ive used the private land layer in the Okanagon and Kootenays it has been spot on. Like if you are watching the blue dot on your phone and walk up to a fence, it will show right on the line. Im not saying its perfect everywhere, but anywhere I have a reference point, its been spot on. Well worth the $9 per year. I use it for camping in the off season too.

    One caveat is make sure you are in cell service when it renews. I was in the Christian Valley around KM 30 with no service on a hunt and I lost the layer until I got service again after renewal date. Luckily I had used it there the year before and new the area.

    I use ihunter. Don't know how to do the private property layer.

    So, I use the BC assessment map and take a screen shot of where I'm going ahead of time. I also do a regional district screen map screen shot of where I'm going, but that one doesn't show what has gone back to the crown.

    You'd be surprised at how many Fake 'private property' and 'no hunting signs' you will notice doing this.

    I guess one other thing to ask which phone do you use with these apps? I still have not gotten one, but I emailed the company about the Ihunter as I have a Android not a Iphone and I asked if it was true that all the features were available with both platforms, and they told me there was more features with an Iphone , but less features. They did say they were working on it to improve the app

    The new BRMB (back roads map book) app is very handy too. But I use them all and Avenza. And Google Earth.

    For regs specifically I like Hunt Buddy.

    Same as everyone else:

    Hunt buddy for regs because it's so effortless. It's a well designed app.

    iHunt for the private/public maps. The app is kinda clunky but the info is amazing. You can download the google map and have the overlay of public, private, parks, etc. It's very nice.
