Pennsylvania Unveils New Hunting App

In General by RMEFLeave a Comment

If you live in Pennsylvania and you’re looking for a place to hunt, need a license or want an easy way to report your deer or turkey harvest, the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s (PGC) new mobile-device app is a one-stop shop that’s loaded with information hunters and trappers need most.

“With this handy and easy-to-use offering, Pennsylvania’s hunters and trappers have all the information they need, right at their fingertips,” said Bryan Burhans, PGC executive director. “Whether seeking immediate answers while in the field, or planning the next day’s hunt from home or camp, all you need is a cellphone signal or network connection to learn whatever you need to know.”

Through the app, which is free to download at the iTunes and Google Play stores, hunters can find out what’s in season and where, when hunting hours start and end, and whether they’ll need to wear fluorescent orange while in the field, and how much.

The app provides instant access to the Hunting & Trapping Digest – the Game Commission’s complete regulations handbook – as well as the agency’s Mapping Center, which charts hunting opportunities including pheasant releases on state game lands and other hunting properties.
