The map is incorrect for a boat launch which I use all the time. It shows a launch that closed last year and not the one that has been open for over 20 years. What good is an app that has a map but the map is wrong? Even if it is just one thing, how do you trust the rest of the map? There is no way in the app to provide feedback on the incorrect map. I was also expecting to see hunting/fishing reports in the app. No such luck. The DNR is missing a huge opportunity to crowdsource harvest info.

We are really sorry for the trouble and we appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. Which launch sites are you referring to specifically? We will look into this further!

It is not ,really, anything new. The app has a lot of potential but until they make the reporting a harvested deer easier to find and smoother to pin point and open map. Well you are going to have problems. I'd make sure you have a good wifi network before reporting and/or cell signal first before using the map option.

Unable to sign up. passwords never match yet there is no 'show' option to see why. Also unable to enter verification data as will not allow for personal date. I wound up making a copy for the boat.
