I do have a chrono but it doesn't come on hunting trips.
I use the radios as well. Our whole hunting group does. They have proven extremely valuable to us. My brother has epilepsy and 3 out of the 5 major ceisures he has had have been while hunting. No way in hell will we hunt without being able to be in constant contact with him. If he doesnt answer the radio call, we go searching. I check in on him every 15 minutes.
Last year an unfortunate shot wounded and elk and I can honestly say that radios saved the day. We were able to spread out and a few non-hunters in our group found the elk but could not pull a trigger. They radiod those that could, told the location, and boom dead elk 15 minutes later. That is ethical in my eyes, I don't care who you are!
