Ratings and Reviews
What takes so long to update the hunting seasons? General season is always the first Saturday of November. Bow season always fluctuates. Kinda hard to plan vacation time when no one knows when bow season starts.
Texas hunting & fishing apt.
For those who write a bad review have no idea as how to use a mobile phone. After reviewing the apt. I was really surprised of the new updates. Loved those about the fishing info! This apt. Has it all and still more. For you fellows out there in never never land, ya better get this apt. Because it’s like a Tech order book. And some of my service buddies know what I am talking about. If something is out of date ya better check the Tech data first to see the the change. This way ya won’t be getting a citation from our friends from the Dept. of law enforcement. Remember, these guys do save lives from time to time. Ya all take care out there in the hunting field and on the lakes. One last thought, leave the alcohol at home for a safe hunting and fishing trip.
I love this app. I have all the regulations at my fingertips. As a fishing guid and hunter this puts the book right in my hands. Customers ask all the time about fishing or hunting regulations and with the Outdoor Annual app I don’t have to hunt for my book. Thanks to all our Game Wardens for your service. Remember to clean and dry your boats.
