    Mine is waterproof to -3 ft but to drop it in the marsh would be difficult to retrieve. Plastic bag could help with maintaining control, and if sealed, may float for a bit...

    But I know of 2 marshlost I phones in the last year.

    Who needs a phone in the blind? Other than emergency purposes or updates from blind neighbors my phone doesn’t come out of the ziplock. Ymmv

    So true. I hunt nearly every morning. People know that. Yet I average 8 phone calls received every day before noon. I’m going to start leaving it in the truck. Losing it was a big hassle.

    Why bring the phone if you’re not going to post evidence of the slaughter

    I bring my phone in case my wife who is up in the Sierra needs to reach me.

    Bring the phone with you just turn it off. You never know when an emergency will happen while hunting and you will be glad you have it to call for help instead of having to go back to the truck to get it.

    Yeah. I know. Your right. I lost my phone today because I didn’t zip my pocket shut. It was just stupid on my part.
