PA Commission offers new App for state game land info

From Pennsylvania Game Commission

-- GPS-enabled applications, or apps as they are commonly referred to, are now available to provide easy access to information about all Pennsylvania State Game Lands.

The app can be downloaded for most mobile devices through links on the Game Commission’s website (

The app was developed by Gogal Publishing, of Warrington, Bucks County, which also has developed a series of fishing apps and maps for Pennsylvania, and will cost $9.99 (plus tax).

Using a smartphone or tablet’s built-in navigation features, this new app provides turn-by-turn directions to parking lots, shooting ranges and check stations and includes details on 2012-13 seasons and regulations for the destinations the hunter selects.

By using the internal map function, each destination can be viewed on a roadmap, with satellite imagery or in a hybrid view allowing you to identify the key features of the local area.

Simple menus allow users to search for State Game Lands by the State Game Land number, Wildlife Management Unit or by which SGL is the closest to the user’s location. All results appear in distance order, allowing the user to find the nearest State Game Lands access. 

The app also assists hunters through the Report Your Harvest feature to phone in or input harvests and follow turn-by-turn directions to bear and elk check stations.

The Find Game Commission Facilities feature provides turn-by-turn directions and contact information to Pennsylvania Game Commission offices and facilities.
