My answer wasn't on there......CELL PHONE!
I don't carry mine and I leave it turned off, but when I do get back to camp I have people leaving me messages about stuff that is NOT vital or important, and this is from people who KNOW where I am, and also know that they should only call me, "If someone dies", and maybe not even that, as I can't do anything about it anyway.
I can't tell you the number of times that I get back from a magnificent day in the woods, relaxed, tired, but extremely unstressed and content, looking forward to an evening of food and good times with my deer camp buddies, only to see that #$^*#@ piece of intrusive technology blinking, and I may as well be back home at work.....I HATE IT!!!!!!
When I started hunting there were no cell phones, and going to hunting camp was sheer bliss, because there were no phones, and the only way we could be reached was if they called the landowner and asked him to find us, which only happened once.
I think I might just start leaving my cell phone at home on the kitchen counter, so they KNOW I can't be reached! [:@]
