Performance enhancements and bug fixes!
Good for what I need.
I use the app to find out the dates on Hunting season's and also to check up on the rules. It does crash every now and then but I restart it and then it works. But other than that the dates that I need are right there on hand also the time that I have to be out of the woods is right there at my fingertips whenever and wherever I am with my phone.
Not a fan.
I only looked at two things, geese, and deer seasons. When I looked at the Canadian goose season, nothing showed up and it said the page was not available. Then I looked at the deer season which only had gun season and not bow. 2/2 things I wanted to look at were not available to me. It's a safe assumption that there's much more than just those two.
I like that so many things can be found in one app. I found all hunting/trapping seasons, local State Parks and regs. This will be handy to have in the stand too.
