Technology makes hunting a lot easier these days


Like many of you older folks, I am just a little electronically challenged. So I still carry a small compass with an arrow always points north in my pocket.

When I’m hiking the Adirondack High peaks this weekend, I’ll have my trail map readily available and use it whenever necessary. I can wander anyplace I want and always get back to where I started. I don’t do well with change and don’t have to worry about the batteries giving out or not having cell service.

But who knows? I might just give the new stuff a try one of these days.
