There is an app for that.

Or there will be.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is in the development stages of their own app. How sweet will that be.

And they want to know what you would like to be able to access on their app.

Of course, on the water and in the woods it will be your gateway to all of the Maine outdoors. Sure you’ll be able to manage permits and licenses right on your phone but they are also working on new tools to enhance your fishing, hunting and trapping experiences.

Here is a link to the survey that Maine  Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife are working on right now.

Some thoughts to consider for the survey, a complete list of trails would be very helpful. Also a listing of water access sites around the state. Maybe even information about wildlife.

The slate is blank…well not really, but now is the time to reach out and give your opinion about things that they may not have thought of incorporating into their app unless you ‘tap them on the shoulder’

Survey says?

Can’t wait for this app.

It will be a great asset to have all things Maine outdoors at our finger tips. Again here is the link to participate and contribute your thoughts and ideas.

RANKED: Here are the most popular national parks

To determine the most popular national parks in the United States, Stacker compiled data from the National Park Service on the number of recreational visits each site had in 2020. Keep reading to discover the 50 most popular national parks in the United States, in reverse order from #50 to #1. And be sure to check with individuals parks before you visit to find out about ongoing, pandemic-related safety precautions at www.nps.gov/coronavirus.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
