I purchased a 9" flat screen TV from Amazon. All I need is a cheap "rabbit ear" antenna. It comes with a remote and wiring which can be changed out with alligator clips. Cost - $70.
A friend has the same set up. He programmed the channels at home for the TV and brought it to the ranch/deer blind. He uses a 12 volt battery for the deer feeders and charges the battery from the blind with a 12 volt solar charger. These are antenna TV channels but it works great!!!
Does anyone else have this set up?

I think I can survive without one, our place you can't even get TV or phone service, it's nice listening and seeing what god created.

If one is "bored" while out hunting or fishing or camping
they took up the wrong sport

Upgraded to unlimited data for just this reason. I'll find a cowboys stream on Reddit while I'm in the stand. Every Sunday I used to decide between football and hunting. Not anymore.

Go hunting to get away from the hub-bub, no tv, got to go to the top of the hill for phone, reading magazines (hunting of course), relaxing and HUNTING.

Let's be honest, I'm sitting in a deer blind 150 yards away from a pile of corn that deer come looking for every time they hear a noise. I'm not really doing much hunting. I'm mostly sitting, killing time til a deer gets hungry enough to show up. Wether I kill that time reading a magazine or watching a YouTube video with headphones on is really the exact same thing.

scanning and its bunos, grunting and rattling, plenty to do while sitting in a blind and I've never even see a mature buck at a feeder usually the young bucks and does and the mature bucks stay just far enough away to feel safe. Plus there are lots of places to glass in the places I hunt. Even when I hog hunt at night watching the feeder I just sit there and enjoy the peace and quiet while airing for hogs to show. It's peaceful not to hear people talking and just sitting in the quiet.
