    two way radios

    Looking into getting radios for season. Anyone using any they'd recommend? I see some have text now, seems that would be handy when remaining quiet during a stalk. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    Just a heads up you may want to check your local regs. In nv its illegal to use them while stalking.

    I have used the Garmin Rino for the last few years. both as a GPS and radio. The radio function we used during managed deer hunts, once you kill a deer and leave the area you aren't allowed to go back in for the remainder of the hunt. If one of us kills a deer and needs help it is a great way to get it before it's too late. If you don't need the GPS function the Motorolas have worked well for us in the past too, line of sight seems to be the key for max range though.

    I have heard that the authorities sometimes monitor the different radio frequencies and can pinpoint your location. In the latest issue of the Oregon Hunting and Fishing Journal a guy got a ticket for littering because he left a plastic bag stuffed under a log. The police new right where he was at and went to check him! For my money I will stick with other means of communication.

    I carry a Garmin Rino 130. Like Jerry said, Game and Fish monitor the frequencies, they use scanners. Motorola use to make a 5watt that would do pretty even if it was heavy. I talked from the top of Pole Mt to Lost Trail Campground to let my wife and son know I was surving the storm without a tent.
    When my brother and I hunt together we use code just because, ie. bring backpacks to 1/2 mile above sat's #2. How does that hurt anything? I also carry a whistle and gen 3 night vision.

    Generally speaking. If you aren't doing anything illegal why would you care if the Game and Fish are listening?

    I agree. They come in handy if used properly
