    Thats exactly the answer I was looking for, thank you.

    I have downloaded the app and looked around in it. Good work

    But if you are asking how technically it is done - I use an electronic format (regulations in PDF that everybody downloads) and use copy-paste to get info as is from regs. So I don't type anything (to avoid typing errors).

    P.S. fresh example or regs discrepancy: 2017 Black Bear in WMUS 26-76 in printed regs and in early electronic regs (from April 2017) was opening on Sep 6. Now if you look at electronic regs it is Sep 5!

    But nobody can guarantee that info is 100% true. So why use it? I can only suggest my view: use it for general planning, browsing what is opening where. When you see in regs lines like "WMUs 2, 3, 4, 18A, 24, 27" - can you picture in your head where are all these WMUs? Are they adjacent or scattered? The apps allows you to visualize it. Click on a map and check in this specific area - what seasons are there. I find it convenient. But definitely definitely before actually hunting or fishing double check the regs. Unless you know your seasons by hart

    This is how I've been using the app, it helps when hunting public land in different WMUs to be able to visualize them on a map in a group then confirm in the regs for the spots I plan to visit. Especially with the new bag limits for small game, I've been trying to memorize what is what for this season.

    I was going to download this, but all the reviews say an older version is better. Is the new bersion worth downloading?
