The NJ DEP has announced the availability of a mobile application designed to provide information and technology to guide and enhance users' hunting, fishing and wildlife watching experiences in New Jersey.

The free Pocket Ranger(r) New Jersey Fish and Wildlife application is a cutting-edge mobile app that provides on-the-spot information on the state's fish and wildlife species along with extensive information on access points for hunting, fishing, boating and wildlife watching on all of New Jersey's wildlife management areas, state parks and forests, and other public open spaces.

The application has powerful GPS capabilities including a Friend Finder feature that allows users to keep track of the location of friends and family enjoying the outdoors together. As an added safety utility, Pocket Ranger has an alert feature that notifies select contacts of your GPS coordinates in the event of an emergency.

For more information about the application, see the DEP news release at http://www.state.nj.us/dep/newsrel/2013/13_0002.htm which has a link to download the app.
