What's New in Version 5.1
Improved performance speed and minor bug fixes.
Needs some work
This is nice but needs a bit more careful editing. For example, on Turkey hunting times the first page summary is incorrect but you would not know that without reviewing many more pages. The extension of the turkey hunting hours is omitted from the first summer page. If someone just takes the first page as correct they would miss out on the extended hours this season. For now, make sure you read all pages on the topic you are interested in to ensure you get the full picture. I have not read everything on the app yet but I felt compelled to rate this now and mention the error in the information provided on first look. I hope that is the only error in the app.
This app is a must for anyone who hunts, hikes, fishes and camps. It has tons a features I like and others I hope to see added soon.
It can and it will be better if we make suggestions via there suggestion link.
keep up the good work.
Great for having all rules and regulation in the woods. Perfect for a taxidermist like myself.
