Has anyone tried it? If so what are your thoughts on it? Thinking about buying one to take on my Wyoming mule deer hunt next month was wondering if it's worth the money. Thanks for any replies!

Have not tried it but can tell you that putting a new piece of gear on for a special hunt is a recipe for disaster...sort of like buying new hiking boots before your first ascent on Mt. Hood. If you buy it, go hunting with it a couple of times first.

Good advice. If I decide to get one I'll definitely take it out and play with it some before the hunt. Thanks!

Now I can say I have heard of everything. What's next, a phone app that scores the deer you are viewing and tells you if you should shoot it or give it another year? nidea

I've got one that I use to put my phone on a spotting scope in the blind. It works really well, but I can't imagine using it in a situation where it's going to get bumped around. You have to do some fiddling with it to get it lined up just right, takes a minute or two each time you take the phone off.

I use it on my swaro sts65. Slip it on and usually the camera auto focus works instantly.
