You know, it would be nice to carry the internet into the field of hunting so I could use a ballistic calculator. Problem is, ALL the talk on the Forum so far, I have NO clue. iPod this, Droid that, Dell axim this, HP IPAQ HX2790B that, its just confusing.

STRAIGHT Question.

What Hardware ( handheld device) and what Program go together, THAT will work, in the middle of the desert where there is NO cellphone towers, Satillites in the sky, no internet connection, no phone connection. Just ME the Calculator and the Game to be hunted?

Thanks to whom answers

    G7BR2 rangefinder. It will give ballistic solutions to 1400 yds. and will give range much farther. Available from Len at LRH store on this website. Gary Campbell

    IPod touch and Shooter app, shooter costs $10.00 and IPod is dependant on which storage capacity you get.

    or you can print out range cards once you know your drop and wind drift. I've done that for years. carry it in one of these.

    Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

    The Motorola Droid Bionic works without network connection very well. The only difference is you must put your weather information in manually instead of it loading it from the internet, which I don't do anyway. You can also use it for measuring distance with Google Earth and Google Maps.
