As fall begins, many outdoorsmen (and women) are gearing up for their hunting season. We realize that for many people, hunting is not an individual effort. Many families and hunting groups participate in large scale hunts together. These hunts often cover several miles at the same time. Two-way radios can allow hunters to work together and greatly improve their odds of bagging that big trophy.
Creating a network of communication between multiple hunters in a group allows each person to play a vital role in scouting or moving animals across a large area. Whether you’re hunting in the mountains, in the forest, or on the prairies, this method of hunting as a group has been used for thousands of years. The advent of instantaneous two-way communication has only improved our ability to work together in group hunts.
Special considerations need to be made when selecting two-way radios for hunting, particularly range and battery life. Range is very important since different members of a hunting party may be spread far apart. Battery life should also be considered when selecting your radios. Rechargeable models are an ideal choice for most hunters. Some hunters however, who may be in a remote location without electricity may want to consider battery operated units.
