And yet, how many of us play with our phones while in the stand, or encourage our kids to do it.

Im guilty of being on my phone. From the time I started hunting when I was 6 until the first year after I started hunting by myself I brought a gameboy with me every time. But I would play hunting games if that counts for anything lol. Some kids just canít sit still long enough without something to play on. I loved hunting when I was little but I just could not sit still without some kind of game.

up I got wifi that reaches my front stand. I make sure the kids go to the back stand. I take the front in case work calls.

Hard work
Attentiveness
Patience
Myriad other skills

You don't learn those on a smart phone. I typically don't hunt over a feeder-any deer I see I may have only a few seconds to react. If I've got my head in my phone I may miss an opportunity I'll never get back.

Each generation is getting less and less able to sit still because they're constantly entertained by movement. Art museums are basically doomed. I'm in a couple of community bands and you can't believe how the younger set is glued to their phones. The guy next to me appears to always be checking gaming sites...and he's in his mid-thirties and single (what a surprise).

I do use the earthmate app occassionally while hunting.

I get no cell signal anywhere on my in-laws property so no need to have a phone other than taking pictures

We don't get a signal on our place, for the most part.

I will let my kiddo spend a little time playing a game silently if it helps keep us in the blind and quiet. I'm more interested in getting him hooked on hunting than I am in enforcing a "100% no cell phone" policy. If this helps keep us in the blind until we score, then it's accomplishing that goal.

I am, generally, mindful of their time on devices and try to limit it.

I don't use my cell when I am hunting. Although, I don't hunt over bait anymore either.

I have a good quality pocket radio and ear buds that I like to use in the stand. In the quiet of the woods, you can listen to a game, talk radio, or music with such low volume that you can easily hear over it.

But I have been known to take the company-provided iPad to check mail during those late Friday hunts.
