Georgia DNR launches app to help outdoors enthusiasts

SOCIAL CIRCLE, GA (WRCB) -- Georgia hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts now have an app of their own, compliments of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division.

The Official Georgia Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Guide, powered by Pocket Ranger technology, is the official app of the GA DNR. The free, mobile app gives both novice and seasoned sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts essential information in the palm of their hand.

Features include:

  • Species profiles
  • Weather information
  • Georgia rules and regulations
  • Licensing information
  • Boat ramp locations
  • Maps of public wildlife areas

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.

Wildlife Resources Division manages nearly 1 million acres of public lands for wildlife and habitat in Georgia. These Wildlife Management Areas and Public Fishing Areas are featured on the app.

App updates are already in development and 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.

Download the free app now on your mobile device through the Apple App Store or the Android Market and search "GA Fish & Wildlife Guide." Visit www.pocketranger.com/apps/ga-fw/apps.php to learn more.
