Wildlife App Popular With Arkansas Hunters

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission now has a mobile application for users of Android-based phones and tablets.

The application provides all of the features of the popular AGFC iPhone application, which was released in 2009. The popular app has been downloaded over 80,000 times. In 2012 over 28 percent of hunters checked their game using the iPhone application.

The iPhone application was very successful, according to AGFC Chief of Communications Nancy Ledbetter. “We have a growing number of users with Android phones, and we’re proud to offer this mobile application to help them access information from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission while they are outdoors enjoying Arkansas’ natural resources.”

The AGFC Android application provides information and services for hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts enjoying The Natural State. Hunters can check game, view season dates and bag limits. Anglers can view fishing reports, use the fish identification search, and see Arkansas record catches.

A personalized trophy case allows users to upload their photos and trophy information which can be shared on Facebook, AGFC.com and email. Daily news and alert notifications with links to AGFC Twitter and Facebook pages are available. Also included are links to purchase licenses on AGFC.COM. There have been more than 10,500 downloads at https://play.google.com/store/search?q=agfc&c=apps since the application launched.
