Kalkomey, a provider of online recreational safety education and certifications, backed by private equity firm Cove Hill Partners, has acquired Sportsman Tracker, the creator of the HuntWise app, a hunting toolset that allows users to pinpoint the times and locate places to hunt on public or private land.
HuntWise provides hunters with a mobile experience, utilizing proprietary algorithms that combine weather, terrain, and species-specific factors.
“Although most people think of bigger cities like San Francisco or New York as epicenters of tech innovation, top tech talent resides right here in West Michigan,” said Jeff Courter, CEO of Sportsman Tracker. “We developed this sportsman-friendly platform to provide hunters with intuitive technology and tools to drastically increase their chances of a successful hunt.”
“Our goal is to empower smarter and safer outdoor enthusiasts with the most accurate and complete tactical and educational content in the world,” said Kalkomey CEO Gayle Anderson. “With the acquisition of Sportsman Tracker, we can expand to a variety of new mediums and incorporate their innovative products into our broader content platform. I am blown away by their offerings and their talent, and I am thrilled to connect our teams, which I believe are the best outdoor educators, developers, and content creators in the industry.”
