What is Powderhook?
The Powderhook app is built for sportsmen interested in learning more about outdoor pursuits, such as hunting, fishing, camping and more. Whether you're new to the outdoors, new to an area or a lifelong enthusiast, Powderhook will make it easier to get out more often and have more fun when you do.
We are a community of conservationists working to make a difference in the lives of people we may never meet, but with whom we share a bond in our love for the outdoors. Digital Mentoring, made possible through a partnership with Pass it On - Outdoor Mentors and Cabela's Outdoor Fund, is an integral part of what happens in the app.
What is a Digital Mentor?
Digital Mentors on Powderhook are waiting and willing to help you. There are so many questions. Where to go, what to do, how to do it, when to try, and everything in-between. Digital Mentors want to make the whole process easier on you, saving you time, and helping you get on your feet as a sportsman.
Digital Mentors make a commitment of a few minutes a week to help answer your questions, point you toward a spot, offer you advice, or share their experience with you. In short, they're your hosts, welcoming you into a community that needs and wants you as a participant.
How does it work?
After you download the Powderhook app you'll click on the "Mentoring" button. From there you click "Find a Mentor" and you're on your way. Select from thousands of individuals from all walks of life. Choose a female mentor, choose someone experienced in deer hunting, or choose someone nearby.
Once you're matched you can communicate through the Powderhook app, or you can text or email each other if that's easier for you. You learn on your time, at your pace, and we'll help you when you need us.
It's time to play offense.
Hunters, our way of life is good and just. Ensuring it lasts into the future requires you to take action. Join us as we work together to create 3 million new hunters in the next 5 years by sharing and celebrating our way of life.

Does it cost anything?
No, Powderhook is absolutely free. We make money by offering companies, organizations, and agencies the ability to build mentoring programs on Powderhook. You'll notice some of the mentors have logos and ads on their posts. That means they represent someone who's paying Powderhook to associate their mentors with their company, brand, or initiative.
Why would a company pay for that?
It's simple, brands need to grow their businesses. Powderhook and our partner brands believe that helping you get started, answering your questions and being there for you when you get stuck, is the best possible form of advertising. Rather than spam you with things you don't need or want to see, on Powderhook, brands can only promote something to you if they actually help you.
Why is the app anonymous?
Ever notice when you hunt, fish, shoot trap, camp or do just about anything else outdoors most of the people look the same? That's not good enough if we want to protect our way of life for future generations. We don't care what people look like. We don't care how much experience they do or don't have. We don't care if they're young or old. Got hot pink hair and 100 tattoos? Cool. We only care that you learn, go, and responsibly share in our way of life. Anonymity lowers the barriers.
Are you going to bug me all the time if I join?
We're going to email or push a notification to your phone when someone interacts with you - think of it like the notifications you get from Instagram. Outside of that, Powderhook will email you every week or so with news, ideas, tips, events, trips and more. We believe every communication will help you, or help you help someone else. You can always opt out, and we will never provide anyone else with your information.
