I wanted to let everyone know what I heard.. At a HTE class a guys cell phone rang... the ring tone was geese... The WCO from Cumberland Co.... turned and said... if you were in the field right now... I'd pinch (fine) you!! The guy was one of the instructors for the class... So please... don't try using your ring tones to call in game...

One of the most stupid things I've heard and I'm sure you agree.

Maybe that was an attempt at humor? Probably not.

It's electronic and electronic calls are illegal in pa (except predators).
Yup, and don't leave your coytoe ringtone (on) your cell when deer hunting....the deer (and your buddies) won't be too happy if it goes off!

Just sayin

The sad thing is that as stupid as this sounds to us, can you imagine if they didnt enforce the rule across the board just how many people would use their phones to call in game that they are not supposed to with their phones? I hav seen many people do anything they can just to skirt around a law. Its ridiculous.

Come on now! IF a WCO was watching you, and it went to a hen call when it rang he would know how you meant to use it. Did you have to dig into your pocket for the phone or were you holding it out so it could be heard?

Use some common sence.

Need to add. It's about as dumb as kids getting expelled from school because of zero tolerance. Bax cutter in the car? Old pocket knife in a farmers pocket? Same thing. Just dumb. You got to take it case by case, and the people in charge know the difference.

most people don't have their ringtone on while hunting, if you need it on change it to something that may spook game and not attract them.
