    LOL!!! I had to laugh out loud at that one! We will use the radios if we break the group up, or if we're at an event and there is a strategic advantage to using them.

    There are no laws saying that you can't use a CB while hunting. The only references to radios in Maine Hunting Regulations are for Junior Hunters, where you have to be in visual contact with the Junior not aided by radio.

    Wardens have been known to monitor CB to help locate those who intentionally drive deer or night hunt.

    I personally don't use a radio cause I mostly hunt alone but I can see the benefits of having one if you are hunting in unfamiliar territory.

    Thumbs up We use'm

    We have used them (we have RINO 110 and 120 GPSr), we don't often because we are usually in voice distance apart. They are handy when you need them.

    The big reason we voted on the FRS channels wasn't so much for an individual caching party to use them, but for one party to contact another ... ever have that feeling when you're at a cache that another cacher might be parked in the parking area?

    I can see an advantage using them while hunting, in case of emergencies especially. But I think you can use them to drive deer. I am not sure if there is an actual law, but have eard many hunters tell me so. I will call a friend of mine and ask.

    I just got a set with rechargeable batteries and use it as an intercom at home, besides using them for caching when my daughter decides to go out of eyesight. They are truly a great and affordable means of comms.

    You are not suppose to use them hunting because they don't want you to drive deer with them. I know someone who got stopped for using them.

    Well, we certainly don't drive deer, and usually only use them twice or so during the hunt. One time about halfway through the time we set to be out:

    "See anything?"
    "Nope"

    And then when we're ready to go:

    "Ready to go"
    "Yup"



    Of course, having waypointed the car with the GPS makes the hike back SOOOO much quicker! LOL!
