The new mobile app is called “GoOutdoorsVA.” One of the most advanced features allows hunters to electronically check their game in by typing in their identification and harvest information.

Go Outdoors Virginia is a new online portal and what VDGIF calls a “one-stop shop” for hunters to purchase recreational fishing and hunting licenses and even to renew vessels, sign up for quota hunts and more.

For more information on the new app, visit the website or download in your android or iphone app store.
