If you’re a New Mexico hunter, looking to fill the freezer, you need to know about the new mobile app the Department of Game and Fish has introduced. While we’re having talks about budgets in Colorado, New Mexico is advancing technology and finding ways to save money.
The NMDGF has implemented a 100% online licensing process, saving the Department millions of dollars. While they’re at it, they designed and introduced the new mobile app, where hunters are able to purchase licenses, and then store them on their devices.
This app will also feature mapping and hunting unit viewing. Years ago I had a similar app for Colorado on an old cell-phone. It provided unit mapping, hunt success percentages, and more. I had to trade the phone in for a new one, and have never been able to find the app again. When I’ve asked CPW rangers about the app, they had no idea to which I was referring. I’d like to see that app re-introduced.
I now use OnX Hunt Maps on my phone and the GPS. I’ve purchased the chip for the GPS because I don’t always have cell service in the areas I hunt. Tell me, what mapping devices are you using? What do you think about carrying your hunting license on your phone? What are some ways your state offers licenses?
“New! A free mobile app is available from New Mexico Game and Fish Department powered by Pocket Ranger® to enhance hunting and fishing our state.
The app offers easy access to hunting and fishing maps, fishing reports, license purchasing, rules and regulations publications, news releases, and more. The app includes quick access to Operation Game Thief, mobile-accessible wildlife.state.nm.us and New Mexico Wildlife magazine.”
