Does it increase or decrease your enjoyment of your time in the stand? I've done it for the past 5 or 6 years, mainly to communicate what can and cannot be shot. And to check on movement from others on the ranch. That said, I've come to the conclusion that texting takes away from everything I'm there for.

Thoughts?

I like being able to text the other hunters and even send photos back and forth. Its a lot quieter than using portable radios that we tried in the past.

Depends on the day. Slow, boring day I'm thankful I've got my phone. When there is a lot of action I'll turn my phone off so I'm not distracted. I don't want to get a vibration in my pocket when I'm about to take a shot.

I definitely like to have it when it's slow. I spend a lot of the downtime reading posts on this forum and checking football scores.

I text. Heck I even post pics here on the forum while in my stand. I try to stay more focused on the hunting part when I have a trophy tag still in my pocket. After I get my buck I get more laid back and play with the phone more.

I rarely have service in the stand. It’s nice that way.

I like having my phone, I control it not the other way around tho, text if needed, but usually to check the weather.

It adds - and it takes away.

I feel the same about trail cameras.

I've had to stop looking at my wireless cameras the morning of a hunt (even if it's a stand I'm not hunting). I agree, I think it takes away from the excitement.

I certainly have times where I don't want to be bothered while hunting. But during the slower times I don't mind if its not to much. If I didn't get to hunt as much as I do I'd probably keep it turned off.

I will text with my brother or other lease members while hunting. Like JCB said if I have my buck tag then I will try and keep it to a minimum though.

No for me. I'm there to get away from the phone among other things. I may bring it turned off so I have a camera in case I kill Old Moe. I do take a lot of video from the stand though.

During the slow times if i don't have my phone or a book or something to keep me busy, I will fall asleep so having my phone and using it during the slow times keeps me awake so i don't miss any deer if i was sleeping.
