Default Bowhunting and Social Media

Hey,

Curious how many people here are on social media such as twitter?
I only ask because I recently started an account focused on hunting and have found tons of people are on their phones in the stand. How many of you are on your phones when you are out hunting? Do you think it effects your hunting in a negative way?

The_FFBowhunter is my new account.

I use my phone to play Texas Hold Em, plus Im always texting other hunters & my wife while on stand. I can also check the current weather radars, wind directions, predicted weather changes, etc. As to the effect it has on my stand time, Id say its positive. Im far less bored & end up sitting for longer amounts of time. Micheal Waddell coined it, being a "HighTech Redneck". 8)

I'm usually on my phone while in stand. I keep my ears open but it does help to pass the time.

I always look around and make sure I am not missing something before I look at my phone. I text and use my twitter app to read the news and follow other hunters. I think its a big help as far as me staying in stand longer.

I think as long as you don't bury yourself in your phone it shouldn't hurt you. Just make it a habit to look around every few mintues.

All the time the only thing I don't like doing is taking a pic with my Black Berry as it makes a camera sound. You cant turn this off so it is always a risk during the hunt when I am posting to Fb. One of these days it is going to cost me for sure I can just imagine how pissed I will be when I hear click, then a weez and crashing behind me!!!

The only electronic devise I have on me when I'm hunting is my camera. I can't see a deer sneaking up on me if I'm playing. I'm there to hunt and take it seriously.
