Here are four mobile apps to enhance the field experience of Georgia hunters:

1. The Official Guide for Georgia DNR Wildlife Resource Division
The state of Georgia launched its much-awaited hunting and fishing app in 2012. The app was launched by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division with the premise of assisting hunters in the field. The app allows Georgia hunters to access weather, species information, rules, and regulations, and even obtain hunting licenses. The app is also equipped with advanced GPS technology that allows the hunter to locate where he/she is in the woods and well as other sportsmen they are connected with. The app is provided free by the state.

2. Georgia State Outdoor Parks Guide

The app provides users with all information pertaining to state parks, and provides a calendar and compass. Hunters can make campground reservations at the tap of a button and access online reservations.

3. Deer Diary
Another resource that puts hunting information at the tips of your fingers is the Deer Diary app. This tool provides hunters with a community of information and data based upon hunter location. Hunters can mark their locations, trace their steps, and record information relevant to their hunt they would like to save. The app also includes a safety feature that allows hunters to share their exact GPS location with their families while they are on the hunt.

4. Trimble GPS Hunt
Trimble GPS Hunt allows users to find hunting information for any locale. The app uses information from GPS satellites and provides five map types: street, aerial, hybrid, topographic, and terrain. Users can collect data, such as the location of their tree stand, hunting blinds or favorite trails. The app also allows for users to capture photos, and more than 15 trip stats, including mileage, speed, elevation, direction, and elevation gain/loss. The app has three options: free, or two paid versions, pro and elite.
