HuntStand was founded in 2012 by the company’s CEO, Lanford Holloway. Years before, Lanford was out hunting on a piece of land that he had known very well. After living out of state for several years, the land had been clear cut, stands had been moved, and new trails and food plots had been created. Lanford found that he was no longer familiar with the property and was having to ask where things were.
Sitting in his stand later that day and realizing how outdated his understanding of the land was, Lanford was looking at satellite images of the property on his phone and thought “there has to be a better way”. He realized that it was possible to create a tool that allowed people to map out their land on their smartphones and then share those maps with their friends. The idea for HuntStand was born. After HuntStand launched in 2013 it rapidly became one of the most popular mapping apps on the market. Since then, the app and website have been massively expanded and refined.
