All In One
I don't know what these other app users are experiencing but I've been able to open my app since day one and have been enjoying it since then. I'm not saying there isn't any room for improvement but I like how accessible the regulations for hunting and fishing are compared to the archaic way we would use to view them before this app came along. I particularly enjoy the ease of finding recreational areas that are close to my location and being able to click on it on the map to learn more and the notifications pertaining to the shellfish closures during the summer. All in all, great app!
Wow very good app.
This app is a great way to step your fish and wildlife to the next level. Ever since I downloaded this app me and my friends have been using it. Pin pointing many locations for new areas to challenge yourself. It's a great tool to have, it's everything you need for fish and wildlife all in your pocket. Very good download!
Fun and fast for wildlife
If you're interested in catching a glimpse of different species: birds, fish, mammals like the beaver, black bear, coyotes...this app is helpful. It gives you a variety of options like sites near me, or where to watch. Also wildlife events, viewing guides, and it let's you record and mark your trail points.
