    Scopes with rangefinders illegal? First I've heard that. Which state has that reg?

    My mistake, I meant the scopes with built in rangefinders and automatically compensates for your distance. Pretty sure Montana does not allow them.

    I won't say it doesn't give you an edge to know where your hunting partners are, but you still have to make a well thought out plan and execute the plan to be successful. We will share waypoints like "beds", but I can't say that we have ever sent a waypoint pin pointing an animal. That does start to sound fishy. The exception to this is a downed animal, but like everyone should, we use predetermined code words for that. Sharing a static waypoint like a rub or a bedding area isn't anything that can't be done at a mid day break on top of a ridge comparing maps. That is all part of good hunting. We have all weighed in on some of these questions on other threads.

    I just checked this years regs on scopes and couldn't find anything. Maybe it changed or the fish and game guy told us the wrong information. I didn't have a scope like that anyways.... Anyhow...

    As far as GPS regs go, I was just curious. Nobody ever knows what kind of rules may come out, as ridiculous as it sounds.
