With various hunting seasons coming up, we talked to some of our Midland hunting partners about how they stay prepared. Being in a field for hours at a time in potentially dangerous situations calls for knowing what to do and when to do it. We talked to @huntlete, @mtn_marty and @huntingwithmarcus about staying prepared during hunting season.

What comms do you use when hunting?

@huntlete: Cell phone - 2-way - need a satellite option.

@mtn_marty: Midland radios.

@huntingwithmarcus: Handhelds and MXT400 from ranger to handheld.
