Georgia hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts now have a new tool in the fishing and hunting toolbox - an app of their own.
The Official Georgia Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Guide, powered by Pocket Ranger® technology, has now been released by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. In a press release, the Georgia DNR reported that this free, mobile app "gives both novice and seasoned sportsmen and outdoor enthusiastsessential information in the palm of their hand.
The features included are:
- Species profiles
- Weather information
- Georgia rules and regulations
- Licensing information
- Boat ramp locations
- Maps of public wildlife areas
DNR reports that the advanced GPS technology enhances any trek through the woods by allowing users to track friends’ locations, mark trails with photo waypoints and keep track of wildlife sightings. Sportsmen can even cache map tiles for offline use.
The nearly 1 million acres of public lands for wildlife and habitat in the Georgia Wildlife Management and public fishing areas are featured on the app and the DNR reports that updates are already in development. These updates will include enhanced birding trails, expanded saltwater species list, a Trophy Case for posting photos and comments and universal formatting for horizontal and vertical viewing.
If fishing and hunting is your passion, you can download the free app now on your mobile device through the Apple App Store or the Android Market and search “GA Fish & Wildlife Guide.”
