The internet provides information overload for any topic that a person can type into Google. Hunters today can look up weather, lunar tables, peak hunting times, aerial images of the areas they hunt and much more from various websites. Founder Duane Keenan states, “I challenge any hunter to create an account on and see if our website doesn't provide information that would normally be found on 4-5 different websites.” Duane Keenan further stated that, “ was designed to be the one and only website that hunters need to help them be more successful.”

Duane Keenan provided us with a sample account and allowed us to look around. We were pleasantly surprised to find everything he stated could be found on and more, but we aren't hunters, so we contacted an avid hunter, Bill Dyer, from Wilmington Illinois and asked him to give it a try.

Here are just a few statements that Bill Dyer made about this innovative web application:

“There are a few things that really jumped out at me. First, having my own homepage that I can customize for quick access to the information that I want most often like, weather, moon phase and moon age is huge for me and I look at it daily. Also on my homepage I can pick a date, time and location and the website will generate all of the weather, solar and lunar variables that I care about for future dates helps me schedule my days off work. Secondly, setting up my preferences or default values is a great time saver so I don't have to reenter information in different parts of the website. Lastly and probably the coolest feature, is the interactive map where I can layout my stands, bedding areas and anything else I know about the area I am hunting and having the up to date wind direction displayed on the map helps me to decide which stand I should be hunting based on the wind. I honestly go to the site daily right now.”

Bill Dyer did express concerns that he wasn't willing to share what he knows about his Hunting Area with other hunters. Duane Keenan had this response, “Don't worry, won't share hunting secrets! Exact locations and observation notes are kept private and can only be seen by the user who enters that information.”
Upon further review we determined that will help any hunter in North America. How does help hunters? The Online Hunting Journal gives hunters the ability to retrieve and record a large amount of data for the times they see animals and the times they don't. The site is designed such that registered hunters can enter observations in less than 30 seconds, so entering observations is very quick and easy. The site will automatically retrieve weather data and calculate lunar and solar data all specific to an exact location. This information is not just stored in a file; this information is added to a database along with hundreds - if not thousands - of hunting observations from other registered hunters.

Duane Keenan explained that many websites today charge hunters for the peak hunting times, while that might have been fine in the old days there is no reason to pay anyone for that information and proceeded to explain what “Peak Hunting Times” were.

“Peak Hunting Times' are based on four periods of the day: when the moon is just starting to rise over the horizon, when the moon is directly overhead, when the moon is just setting below the horizon, and when the moon is directly underfoot, all in relation to an exact location.”

Inclosing Duane Keenan had this to say, “We don't predict the best times to hunt. We help hunters gather the raw data and let hunters decide what data they are most interested in, so that hunters can make their own decisions and predictions.”

Here is the raw data that Duane is referring to: six lunar variables (moonrise, moonset, moon transit, moon underfoot, moon phase, moon age), four solar variables (sunrise, sunset, sun transit, photo period), and six weather variables (current temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, forecast, wind, conditions). allows a hunter to get that information in less than five seconds instead of the 15 - 30 minutes it would take a hunter to search the internet. The information on the internet is general information. calculates the information for the hunter's exact location, and can even calculate for days in the past or in the future.

Go to now to get started! This web application is another valuable weapon in a hunter's arsenal.
