Need a decent set that works in the woods. My boys like to be solo while shed hunting. I’d Like to be able to communicate with them especially in bear country. We’ve had a few different ones in the past $30-$60 types and they have been basically useless. Any good recommendations?

I’ve never found any that were reasonably priced that had any range in the woods. Good luck !

The last time I used a "walkie talkie" was 40 years ago...

Baofeng are higher output than the FRS limit. Not very expensive. Technically you need some paperwork to operate over the weak FRS limits. The old Motorola Talkabout Distance DPS are also higher output. You can find them on the big auction site.

We hunt a large ranch in Montana. We use Motorola RDU 4100 radios. We get a legitimate 2-3 miles, sometimes more. We’ve had them for over 10 years.

For a while FRS was limited to .5 Watt they were really weak. That changed to 2 watt (like older consumer radios) recently. 5-8 watts it a noticeable improvement.

If you have the money to spend a handheld vhf is the way to go you will get miles out of them. Icom or standard horizon are the 2 top brands only down fall is there just a little bigger then walkie-talkie but you will get years of use out of them.

I like my Yaesu FT-60R radios. I can communicate well while hare hunting. I purchased my radios from DX Engineering on the web.
