Game Commmision Offers a New 'App'to Access SGL InformationJuly 16, 2012 Pennsylvania, PGC
The Pennsylvania Game Commission today announced that GPS-enabled applications, or “apps” as they are commonly referred to, are available to provide outdoor enthusiasts easy access to a host of information about all State Game Lands. The app can be downloaded for most mobile devices through links on the Game Commission’s website (www.pgc.state.pa.us).
The app was developed by Gogal Publishing, of Warrington, Bucks County, which also has developed a series of fishing apps and maps for Pennsylvania, and will cost $9.99 (plus tax).
“Using a smartphone or tablet’s built-in navigation features, this new app provides turn-by-turn directions to parking lots, shooting ranges and check stations and includes details on 2012-13 seasons and regulations for the destinations you select,” said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. “Also, by using the internal map function, each destination can be viewed on a roadmap, with satellite imagery or in a hybrid view allowing you to identify the key features of the local area.”
The app also assists hunters through the “Report Your Harvest” feature to phone in or input harvests and follow turn-by-turn directions to bear and elk check stations.
