One thing I will throw out since I routinely teach it as part of Hunter Ed classes. Cell phones are one of the greatest emergency tools there is. If you are in the woods and are injured or perhaps happen upon someone who has fallen out of their stand and been injured, that cell phone could save their or your life. Just because you have it, doesn't mean you have to turn it on. Leave it off, place it inside a ziplock bag (because "stuff" happens) and only turn it on if in an emergency. Besides if you are in a reception poor area, searching for signal will quickly run down the battery, and you can usually text even if reception is spotty.
