Wisconsin Natural Resources updates Pocket Ranger mobile app

Governor Scott Walker recently announced that the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has updated its Pocket Ranger mobile app to include fishing and watchable wildlife information, as well as a Sunrise-Sunset calculator.

Along with the hunting information released last fall, the upgraded Wisconsin Pocket Ranger now offers mobile access to fishing news; fishing basics; lake information; access information; regulations; and fish identification.

Also included in the spring 2014 Wisconsin Pocket Ranger update is information on common watchable wildlife in Wisconsin. Users can find basic identification of the most common birds, mammals, dragonflies, frogs, lizards, mussels, salamanders, snakes, and turtles that they might encounter while hunting and fishing across the state. The Sunrise-Sunset calculator helps hunters check for legal hunting times and the regulations for any day.
