Kansas law doesn't allow calling/texting deer locations

From Kansas Dept. of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism

-- Kansas law doesn’t allow hunters to radio or phone the location of game animals, so if you see a big buck moving in the direction of your buddy’s deer stand, and call him or send him a text, you’ve just broken the law.

The law has been on the books for years, and many hunters are aware that two-way radios can’t be used to give the location of a game animal for the purpose of taking such animal. However, the law prohibits the use of “a radio or other mechanical device,” which includes cell phones. And a text is the same as a call.

Other common violations that can be easily avoided include wearing the required amount of hunter orange, which is a vest with 100 square inches visible from the front and 100 square inches visible from the back and an orange hat. Remember to sign, date and affix your carcass tag to the deer before you move it from the site of the kill.

Always have the proper permit and hunting license on your person while hunting.
