After reading through the "Hunting Partners" and "Technology taking the hunt out of hunting" threads, It got me to thinking that not only lot of hunters hunt alone but are also an aging group by and large, myself included. I wondering if anyone here uses a Personal locating beacon device on their trips and if so would you share your experiences and opinions regarding them. As I remarked in the hunting partners thread I prefer to hunt alone, so after my minor stroke my wife understandably isn't comfortable with me being gone for several days to a week or more at a time in the mountains out of cell range and, I don't care to be tied down to my son-in laws schedule. I have no familiarity with them and thought this might be a better option and hopefuly ease my brides concerns.
Thanks for your opinions.
