Hunting DNR land: There's an app for that

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has developed a new app for Android phones that tells hunters when it is legal to shoot a gun, based on their location.

The 99-cent app was tested with game wardens before it was released. It isn't available for iPhones yet. State officials say it uses GPS to determine where the user is, then matches that will the opening and closing times for the various hunting seasons in that location. The downloadable app can also show information on other locations and future hunting seasons.
