MADISON - The Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile application is back for 2019 with everything Wisconsin hunters need in the field. The app shows property boundaries and shooting hours and new this year, hunters can find chronic wasting disease sampling stations and deer carcass disposal locations.

Users can find new public lands to explore, brush up on the regulations or listen to podcasts all with Hunt Wild Wisconsin. With mobile mapping, up to the minute shooting hours and more, hunters have all the tools to focus on what's important - enjoying your time in the outdoors.

"After we rolled out the Hunt Wild Wisconsin app for 2018, we were thrilled to receive positive reviews from hunters using the app in the field. We also listened to feedback, and we've incorporated new features for the 2019 season based on hunter responses," said Tami Ryan, acting Wildlife Management bureau director. "One new feature we're excited about for this year is the in-app way to look up CWD sampling and deer carcass disposal location. Now hunters can easily find nearby options to help them plan their post-hunt logistics. Also new for 2019 are coding upgrades to enhance hunter's experience with the app."

What hasn't changed are all the features that drew hunters to Hunt Wild Wisconsin in the first place, like up-to-the-minute shooting hours, species-specific mobile mapping and price - it's free.
