FAQ

iOS Android
I answered “No” when asked whether to allow iHunter access to my location. How do I change my answer to allow location services?

You can open the Settings app on your iPhone, tap on Privacy, and then on Location Services. Make sure Location Services is turned on, and turned on for iHunter in the list of applications.

Are the regulations updated every year?

Yes. As soon as we get updated regulations from the province or state, we will process them and push them to your phone. Regulations cover the fall of the current year, and in most cases, the spring of the following year.

How do I transfer all of my existing waypoints to a new device?

On your previous phone, you can use the “Export Waypoints” option on the Settings page to package up your waypoints into a .ihunter file, and email them to yourself or friends. The recipient can click on the file to import the waypoints onto the new device.

Alternatively, you can use the new log in feature on your old and new devices. The old device will back up all the waypoints to our servers, and the new device will download them. Any devices connected to the same account will keep their waypoints in sync.

There are waypoints on the map that I didn’t add. How did they get there?

iHunter partners with companies that are of great assistance to hunters to make it easy to find services they need (taxidermy, butchering, shooting ranges, etc). If you know a company that would be interested in partnering with us, or have feedback on existing partners, email us at info@ihunterapp.com.

The new “consolidated” iHunter iOS app does not recognize my previous purchases, what do I do?

Apple has required that we consolidate all our iOS iHunter apps into a single container app. We try our best to provide access to provinces and states that have been purchased as individual apps. We do this by marking features / apps as purchased in iCloud, and then reading those values from iCloud in the new consolidated app. If an app you purchased is not accessible in the new iHunter app, follow these steps:

  • Log into iCloud on your iOS device, and ensure that iCloud is turned on for the iHunter app that you originally purchased (iHunter SK, iHunter WA, etc).
  • Update to the latest version of the the app that you originally purchased, and launch the app (ensure you have internet access when launching the app).
  • Install the new consolidated iHunter app and ensure that iCloud is turned on for it.
  • Launch the new consolidated iHunter app and your purchased apps and in-app purchases should be enabled.
  • If they are still not enabled, contact us at info@ihunterapp.com and include your original purchase receipt for the features that are not enabled.
