Hunting Success on Private Land

Private Land Hunting is popular across the country on private farms, hunt leases, clubs and guided hunts. Along with Private Land access comes property and wildlife management responsibilities that are often shared among the land users. These include managing:
  • food sources and plots
  • minerals and baits

  • trail and game cameras
  • limited use of the property

To help you communicate, record, and document your progress and success as a property manager, OTS has created huntLINX, our satellite imagery, wildlife management and communication program. With huntLINX, you can:
  • store and share stand, blind, & property features on a satellite map
  • communicate with other members via e-mail, social media and pin drops
  • manage your interactive hunting journal, cameras pics, and harvest records

There's a huntLINX program to meet the needs of hunters on 5 acres to 50,000 acres, so click below to select the right one for you.

randy-moore.jpgRandy Moore
​​Hi, my name is Randall Moore. I live in Southeast Ohio. I grew up in a small town called Ava. I've always hunted and fished. Not always for fun but for survival, as we were a poor family. I work at Sidwell Materials running heavy equipment. Back in 2011, I met Charles Moore, and he introduced me to a new way to hunt and help our wounded American soldiers. So I teamed up with Warriors Outdoors. I started out as a guide, then i became vice president, now I serve as the president. Now I can only hope that I make Charles proud with all we are trying to do with Warriors Outdoors. I'm thankful he is still working beside me and help make his dream as big as possible. He is also a wounded soldier and then founder of Warriors Outdoors. He is a great man and I am pround to take this journey with him.  May God bless America and Warriors Outdoors.

​​Growing up in Southeastern Ohio I learned that hunting was a way of life. I have two great daughters and a wife of 9 years. My father started teaching me about hunting with a focus on bowhunting at an early age. My passion is bowhunting and spend every free moment I can get on stand. With over 25 years of hunting experience I now look forward to sharing those experiences in the field with those who gave so much for us to have the freedom to do so.

Visual Field Alerts



Outdoor Tracker's SAF-T-WRAPS and SAF-T-SLAPS allow hunters to communicate their position afield to other hunters.  These blaze orange, highly visible "HUNTER IN AREA" tree, trail, and perimeter markers discourage other outdoorsmen from approaching your area, contributing to safer hunts, fewer interruptions, and improved privacy. 

The SAF-T-WRAP is 32" x 1.5" and attaches with velcro to trees up to 10" in diameter. 

The SAF-T-SLAP is a 24" x 1.5" flex-fit band that secures to trees, limbs, and shrubs.

The WRAPS and SLAPS are compact and lightweight at just 4 ounces per pack of three. Sold in a 3-pack of WRAP 'N SLAP PAK or in selected combination PAKs of software and other display products. These items are also available in custom colors and with custom text.

 

Step 2: Communicate with Others



Outdoor Tracker Systems POINT-OF-ENTRY DISPLAYS are used to let others know your location afield for safer hunts and fewer interruptions. These displays allow hunters to communicate with anyone who uses the same Private or Public property. Hunters use our PORTA-BOARD, PORTA-POUCH or FISH & GAME BOARD from their vehicle, camp, common parking area, roadside, farm lane, or any other common access point.

pp-step2-page.pngThe PORTA-BOARD and PORTA-POUCH
are water resistant enclosures to protect
printed maps. Each comes with a metal
backer board and six colored magnets.
The magnets match the activity legend
on huntLINX printed maps to communicate
your activity, location, and duration to
others. The PORTA-POUCH is welded
vinyl, and the PORTA-BOARD is molded
plastic with two LED lights to illuminate
your map.

The FISH & GAME BOARD is a customized interactive property map. A high resolution map of your property is bonded to galvanized steel and placed in a water resistant enclosure. Your custom color coded legend and matching magnetic markers allow hunters to communicate their activity & location to others on leases, hunt clubs, private property, public land or preserves.


When used in conjunction with our huntLINX Web Software and Safety Zone Markers, safety, privacy, and the success of your hunt will all improve.
 

Step 1: Manage your Hunts


Outdoor Tracker Systems utilizes huntLINX, our Hunt, Property, Client, and Media Management program, along with a network alert process, visual field aids, and point-of-entry communication displays to improve the safety, privacy, and success of your hunt on private or public lands. The huntLINX web software can be used by individual hunters, groups who share leases, guides or outfitters, hunt clubs, conservation organizations or agencies. HuntLINX is available in four (4) editions to meet your needs: Sportsman, Professional, Outfitter, and huntLINX 500. Refer to our WEB SOFTWARE page for details and to compare packages. Once you've selected your software program, you can view our VIDEO TUTORIALS to learn the program functions or select from the links below to read instructions with helpful screen views of the software.

Brandon Howard is a hardcore hunter and fisherman from Camden, Ohio. He writes: "Since I was a little boy my dad is the one that always kept in in the woods and on the lakes. It almost doesn't feel right if I don't have a Bow or fishing rod in my hands. I mainly hunt for Whitetail deer, ducks, and geese. Primarily all of my hunting is done in Ohio. but once a year I will travel to Michigan to hunt ducks. In 2011 I started filming my own hunts. Hopefully this year I can get the big one on camera when he goes down.

I use OTS primarily as a scouting tool and for safety. I will begin using it next year to log my bass fishing trips to help pattern the Largemouth bass patterns."

Big Chino Guide Service

email.pngwebsite.pngBigChino Facebookyou-tube.png
JP Vicente founded Big Chino Guide Service in 1987. His passion for hunting has led him to find every opportunity to be in the field and that is how Big Chino Guide Service emerged! The desire to hunt trophies with JP is in the forefront of every hunter that Big Chino guides. With a long history of field experience, JP is most known for calling in monster bulls and shooting trophy bucks. He has spent so many days in the field with the monarchs of the southwest, which allows JP to have a vast knowledge of hunting these true trophies. JP and crew have countless days behind glass, as in the southwest spotting and stalking is by far one of the most successful tactics.

JP is a native Arizona kid that grew up in the outdoors of the central mountains of Arizona. He is married to Shawn Vicente since 1983. They have raised a family with two sons, Michael and Junior, and a daughter, Brianna. Their children grew up hunting and fishing and are now raising their families in the outdoors. JP served in the US Army as a Flight Medic and has a well established Career as a Fire Captain Paramedic.

JP loves spending time teaching youth hunters and non hunters that are getting involved in the outdoors how to hunt and leave the least impact of the environment. The “Leave No Trace” theory of the US Forest Service is something that JP takes seriously and when in the outdoors keeps that as a priority. JP seeks serious trophy hunters to hunt with and hopes that you will call soon about hunting in Arizona and Sonora Mexico. Feel free to contact JP direct at any time at 928-925-9395


michael-profile2.jpgMichael Vicente is the eldest son of JP and Shawn Vicente. Michael has grown up in the outdoors following his dad around the central mountains of Arizona. Michael’s 1st hunting experience started on his dad’s shoulders when he was 2 years old. Michael has created a great name for himself in the hunting industry and has put his hunters on some of the largest trophies taken in Arizona! Michael is married to Shannel Vicente and is expecting his 1st child in June of 2012. (A boy and his Name will be “Hunter”) If you wish to speak to Michael you can do so by contacting him on his cell phone, 928-925-9394 or Email: Michael@BigChinoGuideService.com 





junior-profile2.jpgJunior Vicente, like his brother Michael, grew up in the outdoors. Junior is the youngest son, at the age of 20 and has an incredible knack for locating trophy animals behind glass. Like many of our younger guides they spend countless hours as spotters behind glass. Junior has become so methodical behind glass when hunters have Junior on their hunt as the spotter they constantly are wanting to have constant contact with him as his expertise and patience on glass stand outs. Junior has been a spotter for Big Chino since he was 12 years old. That’s 8 years behind glass. He has orchestrated more stalks than most guides around. Junior has been one of those guys behind the scenes for Big Chino and when he completes his College Football Career and Degree, he will take over a full time guide position. Currently Junior is working on the Promotions with Sponsors and Marketing of Big Chino Guide Service. He is completing his degree in Business and Marketing at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff Arizona. We are excited for what he brings to this Family owned and operated business.

 

John Lyons- KY Pro Staff

john-lyons-prostaff-pic.pngJohn grew up chasing ruffed grouse in the hills of Eastern Kentucky with his dad who has instilled in him a life-long love affair with the outdoors.  Now days, his outdoor passion takes him afield starting with dove hunting in September, working through deer and waterfowl seasons and ending with turkey season in the spring.  Trips out west to chase elk have also been on the agenda in recent years.  He is now passing on his love of the hunt to his children.   

John has also supplemented his various outdoor encounters by diving into the world of outdoor videography.  He started Fit2Kill Productions LLC in 2011 and enjoys the challenge that filming and editing hunts adds to the overall experience.  “Getting a successful harvest on video is a tough thing to do but when it comes together, the memory of the moment is something that you can look back on for years to come.”

Given the amount of time John spends afield each year, a product like huntLINX is a vital component of his preparation.  “With the ability to design a specific plan for a specific tract of land, huntLINX gives you the edge on competition, whether that is the game you are chasing or other hunters on public land”.

Mitchell Smith- Owner of Mitch Smith Outdoors
I was raised on a farm in Tennessee and I also have a passion for the outdoors as I was introduced to he outdoors at and early age. I have acquired  a great deal of knowledge of hunting and fishing down through my years in the outdoors.  I have learned from both success and failures  which is why I want to share it with our viewers.  I hope this will benefits and them and they have a better success at harvesting game.

I have a background in law enforcement with different agencies.  I think this gave me a better understanding of patience and perseverance then most people have today.  I learned to read and watch people and know how to work with different people at different times.

I’m married and we have children that I hope has the same passion for the industry as I do. I hope that when I’m no longer on earth that they will have success with the business we started.


Michael Young michael-young-pic.png
I’m a family oriented 28 year old with a loving wife and 11 year old son.  My passion for the outdoors started with fishing at a very young age with my Dad and Grandfather.   From watching a floater for bluegills the love of fishing quickly switched to Large Mouth Bass and that is a summer passion that continues to grow stronger.  I never get to fish when the big ones are biting though because my love for hunting far exceeds my love for fishing.  My Dad and Grandfather both played a key roll in introducing  me to hunting that started at the age of 8.  We squirrel hunted in the fall and rabbit hunting all winter with a few old beagles.  I was able to harvest my first deer at the age of 10, it was a year and a half  old 8 pointer the might have grossed 60”, but with one pull of the trigger the fire was ignited.

As a family, my wife and I decided to start filming our hunts when our son started hunting 3 years ago.  We are glad we have the footage of all our harvest since then, but filming quickly became another addiction of the outdoors for us all.  Our son Dalton now has both of his bucks and doe harvest on camera, not to mention his gobblers.  I hope one day this footage means as much to him as it does me.  My wife and I have both also been fortunate enough to harvest a couple of bucks and doe on camera as well as some great turkey footage.  My one regret is not filming earlier, I would give anything have my wife’s first buck on camera.  In words, I can’t really explain our excitement that morning, but for anyone that has taken someone on their first hunt I don’t have to. Happy Hunting.

Joy Young joy-young-pic.png
I was introduced to the world of hunting by my husband (Michael Young).  Shortly after meeting him I figured out he had a great love and respect for hunting, which consumed a large amount of his time.  Michael was passionate about the sport and eager to expose me to the great outdoors.  I first began hunting as a mere spectator, but quickly understood why it consumed my husband.  It is magical to set surrounded by nature and feel the anticipation of the huntress.

After learning the details of hunting, including safety and ethics, I was ready to start hunting.  With my husband in the stand beside I killed my first deer, it was a doe.  I can still remember the surge of emotions that ran through my body from the time she entered the field the moment I pulled the trigger.  The following year I killed my first buck in the same field, and knew I was hooked.  I then wanted to be able to enjoy the season longer, so I decided to start bow hunting.  This took more dedication and practice, but once I harvested my first doe, I knew it was worth it.  My next journey would be turkey hunting.  The first turkey I killed was a double kill with my husband.  I have been blessed with two double bearded birds since.

When our son was seven he began to hunt and we decided to start videoing our hunts.  This allowed us to capture amazing memories.  I never imagined that watching my son take his first doe could be more exciting then any of my hunts.  Watching a child over come with excitement and confidence is amazing.  Our family spends many memorable hours together, learning and bonding in a stand or blind.  Happy Hunting.

Randy Fish
randy-fish-pic.png I grew up in Greene County Indiana hunting small game and fishing with my grandfather.  While growing up sports and the outdoors played a large roll in my life.  My grandfather and I spent many hours together hunting and running a trap line.  During high school I spent most of my time in the outdoors, skipping a day here and there to go hunting and such.  After high school collage and work took up most of my time which lead to becoming a work alcoholic.  I married my wife Johanna in 1995 and we have one son Payeton who at the age of 13 has a strong passion for the outdoors which you the viewers will see.  My wife got me back into the outdoors as she felt I worked to much and needed a hobby.  I started back fishing since I live seven blocks from the Ohio river and then picked my old bow back up.  While setting up and practicing with my bow a greater passion then I knew I had in me had formed.  I hint 98 % of the time with bow and arrow as you will see, competing in 3-d archery and hunting is my joy.  I have been blessed to harvest small game, whitetails and turkeys with bow and arrow.
In 1999 I started helping a outdoor youth ministry guiding kids on hunts.  It was at this this time I was introduced to filming and how much fun it can be.  Once my son was of age to hunt I stated filming him and before I knew it I was hooked.  We both enjoy hunting and filming each other while in the outdoors.  I’m looking forward to working with Mitch Smith and all the Pro-Staff members.  Hopefully we will be able to entertain and educate the viewers.  Good Hunting.
