In my Alberta Outdoormen column for August I concluded my discussion about hunting technologies with a look at the various electronic gadgets now available, especially Global Positioning System (GPS) devices and cell phones. These devices do provide valuable information; but should outdoor travelers depend on these devices when whole chains of strangers and distant electronic systems are responsible for providing accurate information and any link in those chains could fail at any time? Perhaps we should not be forgetting how to use the lower-tech. devices (compass, map, etc.) in case our higher tech. devices fail ..?
So, what’s wrong with that?
