Cellphones arn't really feasible for the story, so I was thinking something more along the lines of walkie talkies, but I'm not sure if that is realistic and what type of communication it would provide with let's say -- a ranger station or fellow hunters.
The setting is a little hunted area, patrolled by a couple of rangers so it's pretty remote, but the story is set during the deer season so they're not totally cut off. I want them to be able to contact help in the easiest quickest way possible and recieve it, or at least a confirmation that help is on the way so stay put.
Any other little details about deer hunting would also be appreciated ^_^
edit: Thank you everyone, you've been a huge help!
