JACKSON, Miss. -- February 25, 2013

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks (MDWFP) is pleased
to announce the release of their Hunting and Fishing Android Application. The
Android version of the wildly popular MDWFP iPhone application contains a
variety of useful tools and information for Mississippi hunters, anglers and
outdoor enthusiasts. Android users can download the application for free in
the Google Play store
(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nicusa.huntfishms).

“The MDWFP Hunting and Fishing mobile apps were designed as gateways for
sportsmen and sportswomen of Mississippi to communicate with the department
using an interactive mobile application,” said Curtis Thornhill, Chief
Information Systems Officer for MDWFP. “The hunters and anglers of Mississippi
now have a variety of wildlife resources at their fingertips while they are
enjoying the outdoors of Mississippi.”

The MDWFP Hunting and Fishing application allows users to purchase their
hunting and fishing license, renew their boat registration and access
information designed for use in the natural outdoors of Mississippi, all from
their mobile device. Outdoor enthusiasts can access the GPS mapping feature to
pinpoint nearby state parks and wildlife management areas or capture images of
their game in the application’s trophy case. Additionally, a location based
sunrise and sunset timer, daily feeding times/moon phases, as well as up to
date MDWFP news feeds are all features of the application.

iPhone users can also enjoy the feature-rich application by searching “MDWFP
Hunting and Fishing” in the Apple App Store and downloading the application
free of charge on their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad devices. The iPhone version
has been downloaded almost 6,000 times since its release in July of 2012.
