      / Press Release

      Georgia hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts now have an app of their own!

      The Official Georgia Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Guide, powered by Pocket Ranger technology, is the official app of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division. This free, mobile app gives both novice and seasoned sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts essential information in the palm of their hand.

      Features include:

      Species profiles
      Weather information
      Georgia rules and regulations
      Licensing information
      Boat ramp locations
      Maps of public wildlife areas

      Advanced GPS technology enhances any trek through the woods by allowing users to track friends' locations, mark trails with photo waypoints and keep track of wildlife sightings. Sportsmen can even cache map tiles for offline use.

      Wildlife Resources Division manages nearly 1 million acres of public lands for wildlife and habitat in Georgia. These Wildlife Management Areas and Public Fishing Areas are featured on the app.
