Ratings and Reviews



I needed to use the game check 30 min after I downloaded it. When setting up the hunter profile it froze at the DNRID screen three times before I gave up and used the game check telephone number. The other features seem helpful, though i have not used them.

It would be nice to be able to see your complete Compass website info - I checked in said game only to press a button during the confirmation number reading and missed it.

Another bug. I got my profile set up eventually (connected to wifi at this point) and was looking at the game check process. I backed out. There was a reminder that a game check was in progress (nice feature), but I could not cancel it as the command would freeze at this point. I could back out and still use the app.

Three stars based on tremendous potential, but i haven't been able to use it the way I need it.



This App is a great way to explore Maryland's State Parks and waterways. I especially like the 'Near Me' feature that let's me choose an activity, then figure where to go to make it happen. Also, the Harvest Check-in feature will save me a ton of time the next time I go hunting.

Thanks Maryland DNR!

Cant find app

3 peas in a pod

When you search maryland dnr or even maryland state parks you can not find this app. The only way to find it is the link through the state site. This seems very counterproductive to me as a maryland resident who uses the parks and would love to share information about them with friends or family.
