Our May INSIDER giveaway details:

When it comes to hunting or hiking in the mountains, there's nothing out there that can make things not only safer and also has the ability to get you to go on more trips than a Garmin inReach Mini. So to help you get out in the field more, this month we are giving away 10 Garmin inReach Mini satellite messengers. Total value $3,500 ($349.99 per inReach Mini).

So what makes the inReach Mini so special?

As mentioned above, owning an inReach Mini could actually allow you to hunt more, because you can still check in and communicate with your family while you are deep in the mountains. The inReach Mini lets you send and receive text messages, track and share your trip and, if necessary, trigger an SOS alert to contact the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team. With an inReach attached to your pack or bino harness, your family and friends will always know that you can stay in touch globally. It connects for messaging via the 100% global Iridium satellite network. You don’t have to worry about being within range of a cell tower or encountering spotty coverage. Your inReach Mini works anywhere.

You can even connect the inReach to your cell phone for easy text messaging and sharing your location on a map. For more information, be sure to check out the Garmin inReach Mini satellite communicators here.

this would be great I could have a tool that would be useful for something other than draining my cell phone battery, when my wife thinks she needs to know I'm not dead at the bottom of a cliff or something

Since I turn 72 this month and have a bad ticker, I’ll start carrying one this year. I’ll wait until after the drawing to go out and buy one, though. Thanks for the giveaways. Good luck to all the Insiders.
