    This app lacks a lot and does not even show state forests and some WMAs as hunting sites.

    App says it will show location of friends if you put in the info and it does not do it.. it also needs to be updated with all other creeks and streams. This app is very under ran needs extreme updates. Every person should get 1 pin for friend locator not have to redo it all the time.. very unhappy with this app
