Two Way Radios For Hunting

Two way radios (or walkie talkies) have become extremely popular with hunters, so much so that many radio manufacturers are now producing radios specifically catering to the needs of hunters. It is now common to see value packs of camouflage colored radios pre-packaged with headsets or boom mic's and car charging adapters. There are so many radios built just for hunters that the only problem is choosing which one to purchase. Don't worry, we're here to help!

When shopping for a two way radio to be used for hunting, the following features will be most important:

  • Range - If you plan to hunt in thick woods or brush, range needs to be a serious consideration. Obstructions such as these weaken the signals and cause dead spots with less powerful radios. Higher powered models can deliver a mile or more of range in tough conditions.
  • Headset Support - The last thing you need is a transmission from your radio scaring away your prey. A comfortable earpiece or headset is a requirement.
  • Battery Life - Without power outlets being readily available, keeping your radio charged is a big concern if you're planning to spend a lot of time outdoors. Look for models with extremely long battery life, those that have the ability to operate on standard AA or AAA batteries in a pinch, or models that support a vehicle charger.
  • NOAA Weather Information - Being outdoors, it is always a nice bonus to have weather information right at your fingertips.
  • Camo coloring - Color obviously isn't a requirement, but camouflage radios are very popular with hunters.

Recommended Two Way Radios for Hunting

Motorola TALKABOUT T600 Two Way Radios

The Motorola T600 two way radio is Motorola's top of the line consumer model. It includes two high-powered, full featured T600 two way radios. This model is IP67 waterproof - meaning it can tolerate being submersed - and it even floats! This model is durable, can charge with a standard micro-USB port, and has a built-in flashlight. Also included is support for weather channels, and this model can operate on AA batteries in a pinch. Motorola Talkabout accessories available, both from aftermarket companies and direct from Motorola. The Motorola T605 version adds a carry case and car charger.

Midland GXT1050VP4 Radios With Headsets and Charger

The GXT1050VP4, with its Mossy Oak camo coloring, was designed by Midland specifically for hunters. Like the popular GXT895, the GXT1050 provides the best range of all consumer radios. It supports weather channels and alerts, and can operate on standard AA batteries (if necessary). The GXT1050VP4 is more waterproof than other consumer radios. This could be a nice benefit if you encounter a heavy rain. A vehicle charging adapter and two hands-free (VOX) capable headsets are also included.

Motorola TALKABOUT T465 Two Way Radios

The Motorola TALKABOUT T465 is a medium grade radio kit for hunters. It includes two Motorola T465 radios, wall charger, a durable case, and earbuds with push-to-talk (PTT) mics. It is good for medium range communications (around a mile, depending on terrain). Like the T600 (above), the T465 supports weather channels and can operate on AA batteries in a pinch, but lacks the excessive weatherproofing. If you need a different style headset in the future, there are more accessory choices for Motorola products than any other brand.
