Michigan DNR Launches New Hunting App

(MNN) – The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has launched a new app in time for hunting season.

The app allows fishermen and hunters to buy their licenses and trail permits and enables them to report deer and fish harvests, look up regulations and view hunting area maps. The DNR says the app will also make it easier for the agency to track population data and diseases.

So far about 42,000 people have downloaded the app and almost 17,000 licenses have been sold through it.
