Video: Why You Shouldn’t Text and Hunt
OutdoorHub Reporters 09.28.15
It’s hard to resist the temptation to get on your phone while bored in the woods. If you’re lucky enough to be in an area where you could get a signal, then you might think nothing of spending hours catching up with friends, surfing the internet, or playing Deer Hunter on your smartphone.
But it can cost you.
As this hunter found out, being distracted on a hunt can rob you of some golden opportunities. A doe was able to sneak within six yards of his blind, see the hunter, and dart away before he was able to bring up his bow.
Ouch. Better luck next time.
