having a cell phone in the field while hunting can be a great benifit. it may save your life if you get sick or injured, mine has a compass and map app and i'm sure there are other helpfull apps. put your phone on vibrate and stick it in your pocket, it's there if you need it.
having said that i don't think that was what the original question was about. i do not play games on it, i do not let it distract me, i don't take random calls when i am in the field because i am there to hunt.......but it is a comfort to have my phone with me if i need it.
ya only got 1 arm and ya carry 3 guns for Christs sake. Well I don't want to get killed for lack of shooting back.
