MADISON – Hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts who downloaded the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources original Sunrise-Sunset mobile app released back in 2012 need to upgrade their app to have current sunrise and sunset times.

The free Official Guide for Wisconsin’s Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife (Wisconsin Pocket Ranger ® ), mobile app unveiled late last year is also the official upgrade for the sunrise-sunset app. The original 99-cent sunrise-sunset app is no longer supported and all its functions have been transferred to the new app.

This new version is available on iTunes and Android Market by searching “Wisconsin Pocket Ranger” from and Apple or Android mobile device. People can also find more information by visiting dnr.wi.gov, search keyword “mobile apps.”

The sunrise-sunset calculator, now included in the Wisconsin Pocket Ranger ® , continues to help hunters check for legal hunting times and the regulations for any day but the new app also provides access to useful fishing, hunting and wildlife watching information in the palm of your hand.

With the new app, hunters and anglers will be able to locate Wisconsin’s fishing, hunting and wildlife watching sites and gain immediate access to on-the-spot species profiles, rules, regulations, and permit and license details all from within a single mobile app.

“We greatly appreciate the support we had for of the original sunrise-sunset app. Now that it has been discontinued, we encourage you to download the new Wisconsin Pocket Ranger ® ,” said Karl Brooks, DNR deputy chief warden.
