FOR HUNTERS, NEW GAME COMMISSION APP HAS IT ALL

FOR HUNTERS, NEW GAME COMMISSION APP HAS IT ALL

Free app can be installed on mobile devices for handy use anywhere.

Whether 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 new mobile-device app is a one-stop shop that’s loaded with information hunters and trappers need most.

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.

Those in need of licenses can buy them online through the app, or find an issuing agent nearby where they can pick up a license in person. And those who are successful in big-game pursuits can report their harvests through the app, learn the locations of bear and elk check stations, or find a processor where they can donate venison through the Hunters Sharing the Harvest program.

Wildlife-law violations can be reported through the app, and hunters can document their exact location to share in the case of an emergency.

“With this handy and easy-to-use offering, Pennsylvania’s hunters and trappers have all the information they need, right at their fingertips,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “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.”

More information about the app, and links to the iTunes and Google Play stores, can be found at www.pgc.pa.gov by selecting Game Commission Mobile App under the Information & Resources tab.
