    They're NOT illegal to use when deer hunting. You can use them. My brother and I found this out last year from our local CA. He said they're not illigal in MO. We told him that we orchestrate deer drives every year with quite a few guys and we all have radios, is that legal, he said sure is. And if that doesn't convince you, here's a thread from a couple years ago that might.

    We've used the 2-way radios.....they are nice to have when You can radio your Hunting Buddies whats moving around and the different Deer you've seen while on stand...You'd be surprised at how much a Buck will travel on a certain property and make his rounds looking for hot Doe's!Same thing goes for seeing a coyote and warning another Hunter he has one coming his way....and it makes for great entertainment and passing the time away and letting each other know how they are doing and where they are! :cheers: :cheers: :eek::

    I sure keep in touch via text but we dont use radios anymore.

    Still dont do it other than to pass the time... and sure dont do it to orchestrate drives or anything.

    Just a nice thing to have in order to let folks know where you are and when you'll be back.

    The question of being illegal was brought up in this thread. http://www.missouriwhitetails.com/forums/viewthread.php?tid=130933 Just thought I'd make a new one so anyone that didn't open that thread would still see it. :cheers:

    Its a very good idea to get one of those ear plug-ins so nothing can hear the radio go off when talking on the 2-way radio's....I love using them but some of the newer radio's have way to many silly bells,whistles and bleeps on them to suit my needs out in the woods. :shrug: :thinking:

    I still have the older school ones that don't have all the bells and whistles. And yes, for me, those ear plug-ins are a must have. Neither one of my brothers use them, but I sure do. I won't sit a stand without one because they pop when the other hunter's button is depressed. I would be "depressed" if that happened while I had one coming in. :rof2:

    We use them too. I bought some of the Midlands last year and they seem to work a little better than the older Motorola's that we used to have. Unfortunately, with the terrain at our place, and the location of my stands, I can't always seem to reach back to the barn. I would love to just text, but once again, the terrain cuts out almost all cell signal.

    I heard that the local pd was replacing all of their handheld units and selling the old ones for cheap - gonna have to look into that!

    Yeah, they can let us know how good they're hitting the bait plots while we sit in empty woods.:stirpot::bored:
