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.

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.

I agree with Sapper however watching some NCAA Football during an all day sit sounds nice.

I do all the same stuff while the cowboys game is on. Got a rattle bag and grunt call as well as a pair of binos sitting right by my phone.

I love the fact that there is no phone service or tv at the lease. I always carry my phone for pics or an emergency 911 call but Facebook, THF and tv shows are out of my mind for the time I'm there. If we go to town to the store or to eat, i can't help but pull out my phone and check for service to contact the wife so she's knows I'm ok, but at the lease, no


Go get in the woods

There's nothing more boring than watching a pre recorded sporting event.

I was in a blind in Wisconsin, really a cabin on stilts. It had power so there was a big TV and satellite dish, they must watch the Packers.
When they were not in the blind they left the radio on a talk station, the deer get used to it. Deer would be bedded down in the shade under the blind listening to Rush Limbaugh.

Trying to find a picture I have but I say go for it, I have a 7" TV in my blind. I use a 1.5 or 2.0' PVC with rabbit ears on top $10.00 at wmt or hd. I power it with a jump-n-cary last along time and then I I shoot something I use the power pack to power my winch to load the deer/hog. If it helps you or kids stay in the blind longer you have the opportunity to see more game. My blind is insulated and standing outside you can barely here the TV. I know the pros and cons but the whole reason we are there is to have fun. To all the neigh sayers ask them if they have range finders, binoculars, high powered scopes, deer feeders, protein feeders, or food plots.

Hunter Daddy ask if anyone else had a TV in the blind, this just happens to be how I power mine when I use it. There are purest who feel hunting should be done a certain way. My comments at the end were only to point out that today lots of us use different "toys" which give use what some might consider an unfair advantage. I know bow hunters who feel that there's no challenge to rifle hunting any more thus they only bow hunt. I also know rifle hunters who won't take a shot unless they they can put the bullet exactly where they want it to go. That was all I was trying say.
