This is a man made law, and this law has nothing to due with a hunters ethics whatsoever.

How about: "Jim - I can see you across the valley, the 12 point is bedded to your downhill to your left left, about 50 yards out - get ready - I'll whistle and see if I can get it to stand up.................bang"

I'm sure the intent of the law is to avoid stuff like this - I'm not sure how easy it would be to enforce - do they have to tape the conversation? How do they verify who is talking?

Anyhow - I doubt there is much enforcement going on - or even needed.

Radios can be a big help on drives. The drivers start clicking away on their radios when they get deer moving, and the standers know when to really pay attention.

I don't use radios at all, I hunt alone mostly. If I hunt with someone, its stand hunting.

Oh yeah, some of the hunting shows aren't really much more than guys sitting in blinds shooting animals that are one step away from livestock. They may even be behind high fences. In NH, where I used to live, you didn't even need a hunting license to shoot animals (Except bird species) in that situation. Obviously you didn't have to follow any other Game laws either.

There was an article about Babe in the Sunday paper here in Wisconsin, as Minnesota is our neighbor this was big news.

Anyway a rep from the WI DNR said that we can use a radio to say "hey dad, big buck coming your way" but we can not say "Hey dad, I just shot a big buck, can you come over and tag him?"

In WI you must be within shouting or visual range of another hunter in order to harvest a deer for him in our "party hunting" rules.

I was surprized I thought we were the same as mn, that it can only be used for saftey issues.

Yeah who cares! If all they were doing is using 2-way radios then let it be. There are a heck of alot of worst things that happen. JMO

In our state radios are legal but must not be used in any way to assist in taking game. Its sort of a joke though as when people have them they are pretty apt to misuse them.
