True.

The kids need to be finding the Playboys under the carpet and looking at them just like we all did. grin


Darn straight. Go find some Penthouses in the creek, son. That fancy googling just makes you lazy.


Teaches dexterity too. bolt

I always take my phone to the stand with me, but only for text messages back and forth with hunters in other areas or emergency. It's in my pocket 99% of the time. I have been known to take a book or magazine with me. Like NP, I can stay in the stand longer.

Same here and don't want one. It's hard enough dodging them with both eyes on the road.

If there is an accident, like tripping and injuring yourself, I want my phone, but most of the time I don't use it. Trying to escape when I'm out in the field. Enjoy nature. That being said, I agree it is no different than a book.....

Sometimes I text, but mostly I nap. Some of the best naps I've ever had were in a deer stand. I had some buddies on a lease in the 80's laugh at me one time. I had a rope near my wooden plank nailed in the tree fork. They asked about it and I told them it was so I wouldn't fall out of the tree when I went to sleep. I actully was sleeping one day with the rope holding me in and drooling on a doe below me. That was an awesome nap. A few years ago I was doing a College paper with my wifi in the stand. It was hard to consentrate. sleep2

Snap chat, twitter, FB...... smartphone is a misnomer. Only one getting smart is .gov.

If you don't know Mr. Faraday Cage, your phone is smarter than you are.
