Current Hunting Season Information on MDWFP App

JACKSON-We have learned over the past week that some iPhone iOS7 users are not receiving current information from our Pocket Ranger app. All other smartphone operating systems appear to be receiving current information. This has been particularly confusing concerning the opening time for the upcoming dove hunting season, which will be one half hour before sunrise on private lands. Hunters need to check specific opening times/dates for WMA dove hunts on Wildlife Management Areas and the Private Lands Dove Field Program.


A solution to this problem is to go to your iPhone's settings: 

  • select the Pocket Ranger app, 
  • select Data Synchronization, 
  • select Automatic Sync, 
  • and choose Every Time App is Launched.
