App Users Encouraged To Use Online Hunting Resources


MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced that as of June 29, 2023 the Hunt Wild mobile application will be retired. Instead, hunting and regulation resources can be found on the DNR’s Hunting webpage.

The Hunt Wild mobile application was launched in 2018 to provide mobile access to hunting information. Hunting hours, site-specific rules and regulations, CWD sampling locations, public lands information and more could be found on the app.

The DNR is retiring the app as it has reached the end of its life cycle. The hunting information from the app is still available in a mobile-friendly version by visiting the DNR’s hunting webpages. In early July, hunters will also be able to download a copy of the current 2023-24 Combined Rules and Regulations Pamphlet from the Hunting webpage for offline access.

Current users of the app will be able to open and access data stored in their app until June 29. After that date, the application will no longer be updated and maintained. The DNR thanks everyone who downloaded and used the app over the years.
