Hunt Wild Wisconsin app has new user-friendly updates
RHINELANDER - Hunting this season became a little easier thanks to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
There's a new update for a hunting app that has everything hunters need while out in the field.

Hunt Wild Wisconsin is a free mobile application that can be personally customized for pre-hunt information and post-hunt logistics.

DNR Warden Tim Ebert says the new updates help hunters with every step of the process.

"It allows you to customize the information you're looking for based on what you're hunting. So when you open up the app, you'll get to a screen where it'll ask you the species that you're interested in and you can select more than one," said Ebert.

The app originally debuted in 2018.

The DNR hopes these new updates make their app more user friendly.

"What I have heard from users is they do like that it's a tool they can carry with them in the field to easily look up things like hunting hours or as a quick reminder of some hunting regulations," said Ebert. "Often times, people don't carry a paper copy of the regulations with them in the field but everybody's pretty much got their phone with them."

The app also allows users to access their Go Wild account to purchase hunting licenses and permits.
