I attended a program similar to this as a kid and it was great. This isn’t just for kids its for adults too We can always use a reminder on safety and spending time with other hunters is always a great way to learn even if you are the most seasoned hunter.

VDGIF Add Hunt Fish VA Android App

HuntFishVA App 180x300 VDGIF Add Hunt Fish VA Android AppIt was probably close to a year ago that the VDGIF released the Hunt Fish VA iPhone app but they have recently brought basically the same app to the Android platform! Which is awesome because that is what I use.

Here is what they have said about the app:

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ new app for iPhone, iPod touch, and Android is perfect for:

  • getting the latest news from VDGIF;
  • looking up hunting regulations, seasons, and bag limits while in the field;
  • viewing freshwater fishing regulations and state record fish;
  • identifying the fish you just caught;
  • getting the sunrise and sunset times for your location;
  • recording your trophy harvests;
  • finding nearby boat ramps, Wildlife Management Areas, and lakes;
  • and more!

Best of all, it’s absolutely FREE!

I’ve used it a little and really like it.  It always seems to work smoothly with no ‘force close’ or freezing.
