Toprut

Toprut is an online tool designed to help hunters research, plan, and apply for hunts and tags each year. The information provided includes draw odds, hunt quotas, applicant totals, and harvest information. More states are on the way, but if you’re planning hunts in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, or Wyoming, then Toprut is a tool you need in your arsenal.  Here are three of the top reasons to take advantage of your free Toprut membership.

Draw Odds

It’s imperative to understand your chances of drawing a tag based on how many points you have. Toprut goes the extra mile to obtain detailed data from the state wildlife agencies in order to generate the most meaningful and accurate results. Often, this information is not available for download by the general public and is only available for a fee. That is at the core of what Toprut does: gather, analyze, and publish the state draw data in order to produce the most accurate draw odds available anywhere.

Advanced Filtering

Once you have decided on a state and species to hunt, you can use Toprut’s advanced filtering tool to customize the filter based on your individual data. Customize the filter for your residency, drawing type, and number of preference points. You can filter even further with the percent of draw odds you prefer, what seasons dates you want to hunt, and what percent of public land is available in that hunting unit. 

Hunting Statistics

Toprut has pulled in additional hunting information such as the total number of tags for each unit and success rates. It’s also possible to view historical data such as the historic number of points needed to draw in a certain unit.

Huntin’ Fool

For 25 years, Huntin’ Fool has been helping hunters go on more hunts with better information.  Anyone planning western hunts will want to utilize Huntin’ Fool’s boots-on-the-ground research and planning tools. Here are the top three reasons to take advantage of your free Digital Research Membership from Huntin’ Fool.

E-Magazine

Huntin’ Fool’s foundation is built upon an industry-leading monthly magazine, packed with hunting research, stories, gear insights, and more. The content of every issue is strategically aligned with state application periods so members can use it as a real-time application strategy planner.

Application Research

Huntin’ Fool has two simple and effective features designed to help with application season. Each state’s application system is different, making it confusing to know when to apply and how much it costs. 


1. Huntin’ Fool has set up a calendar and notifications system for each state’s applications openings and deadlines, helping you never miss a deadline. 

2. A new Draw Cost calculator helps hunters review the cost associated with applying and drawing a tag in each state. Simply input the state and species you want to hunt, and it will give you a preview of the application costs.

Previous Tag Holder List

When you finally get your hands on a great tag, you want to enlist all possible help to make the most of the opportunity. At the end of the day, nothing beats boots-on-the-ground experience, and that’s why Huntin’ Fool began connecting hunters with each other through a Member Draw Database. This database is more than 20 years old and has grown to become the largest of its kind, containing more than 25,000 chances to connect hunters with members who have hunted the same tag in the past. Use the tool to get first-hand knowledge about potential animals locations, camping spots, water sources, and other valuable information from people who have previously held that tag.

HuntReminder

You can’t draw a tag if you forget to apply for one. HuntReminder is a simple, effective service designed to help hunters set text message and email reminders to apply for the tags they’d like to draw. If you tend to procrastinate on your applications until the final minute or need help keeping track of the different tags you need to apply for, HuntReminder is a critical tool to round out your application season experience. Here are the top three reasons to take advantage of your free membership with HuntReminder:

Intuitive reminders

HuntReminder lets you set text message and email reminders for as many applications as you like. You’lll receive a reminder to apply when the application period opens, one week before it closes, and 24 hours before it closes. Each reminder will include a direct link to the state / species page for you to begin applying.

State and Species Filtering

HuntReminder provides the ability to filter either by one state (and view all the available hunts to apply for in that state) or look at a particular species and all the different states you can apply to hunt that species in. This is a great way to get the full picture on hunts you can apply for.

Nationwide Coverage

HuntReminder covers more than 690 tag applications across 44 species in all 50 states. This is helpful not only as a reminder for hunts you are aware of but also as a method to research potential hunts you never knew existed.
