I disagree to some extent, When me and some of my hunting buddies get a chance to hunt together we have found it helpful using our phones to text message. One might have a different view of a field, swamp or woods and could let a buddy know to be on gaurd, get gun ready, rattle horns, grab grunt tube/doe bleet. It worked great for me last year. My buddy was sitting in an oak ridge to my west about 200 yards from me and spotted some does making there way down a fenceline to my east, I couldn't see them until they got about 50 yards to my east. I filled a doe tag that night.

That's interesting. Didn't know it was illegal using a cell phone in the woods now at one time. I better check my state regs.

I cannot find any documentation on the NH fish and game website or the hunting digest that prohibits the use of radios for the purpose of aiding other hunters in there successes. I think years ago this was illegal activity. I will e-mail them to verify this.

I know it was illegal a few years ago but hey things change and no one bothers to tell me. happens all the time. I know its true for the moose still. Heck you can't even vocally say "look over there! there is a moose." unless you are the permittee or the named the sub permittee.
