Default Illegal hunting on TV!!!

I just put this post on the deer hunting forum and thought I'd put it here too....I was watching Backland outdoors on TV today and they were deer hunting in Iowa. Two hunters in different stands were talking over 2-way radios which, unless the laws just changed, is illegal!!! Wanted to know if anyone caught this show and what you guys think of it.

Do you know who was on the show?
I heard that Babe Winkleman got a fine for the same thing!

Well now that I read the regs the law states that it is illegal to use radios to tell the location or direction of game or coordinate hunters. If they are just letting each other know if they got anything it MIGHT not be illegal.
