What's New in Version 6.6.0
Performance enhancements and bug fixes!
Good, but not great!
Why not great? Dove season opens tomorrow, but if you use the PocketRanger dates, you would miss opening day. Even though the eregs were posted 30 days ago, PocketRanger still has last years dates. Why is this a problem? Hunting on any WMA on the wrong date is a hunting violation and carries stiff fines. When they begin to get the dates updated prior to opening day for Fall hunting season, it will be a very useful app. Otherwise, hunters beware!
Good basic features
As it is, it works perfectly fine. However, you do have to spend time browsing to get a good understanding of the app. My main suggestion would be to have a feature where you can search State/Federal lands by county.
It's nice having all the WMA hunting dates and maps with me all the time. Can even pull up GPS for directions to the check stations.
