MADISON, Wis. (WXPR) -- Hunters will have an improved "app" for their smart phones courtesy the Wisconsin DNR.

Law Enforcement Division Deputy Chief Karl Brooks says the Sunrise-Sunset hunting app gives Android and iPhone users access to information out in the woods without carrying all the printed regulations. "They can find the DNR sunrise-sunset app that helps them identifying when the legal shooting hours are for certain hunting species. For example bear, deer, small game, fall and spring turkey seasons and even migratory birds, so its a tool to allow people to have that instant access in their pocket"

Brooks says the apps have been field tested by DNR. “You can turn on GPS and make use of some of those technologies of knowing where you are at. You can use some of the manual ways depending where you are at in the state some of the times, dates and locations when your shooting hours begin and end..."

The cost is 99 cents at the Google Playstore or iTunes. More information is on the DNR website.
