    Inside pocket. In a good, protective case. Here is the logic I prescribe to:

    There is a good chance my bike and I will be separated. In many cases, that may be desirable. Tank bags may be a great place to carry some things, but as I may separate from my bike, the tank bag may separate from both as well and sometimes cannot be located (say...if it flys down the canyon wall or something like that). I cannot guarantee I will be able to get ot my phone safely if it is not on my person in case I feel it is not safe for me to get up from injuries.

    If the phone is in a durable case (i.e. Otterbox on iPhone) and on an interior, chest wall pocket...well...look at the armor on your gear. Usually the most common areas to get 'whacked' are back, elbows, knees, hips. It seems to me that a moderate amount of protection and a place where the phone is least likely to get damaged...but still on your person is one of the best possible scenarios.

    YMMV

    Much of Women's gear doesn't have an outer pocket.

    My phone isn't upset about being tucked under my boobie anyhow. My husband says he's just a bit jealous. :lol3

    What say you guys on Owls in Arkansas? We have lost 3 ducks recently and cant find out whats happening. I've looked everywhere, no feathers, no signs, nothing. My dog came up carrying one of the ducks and it had no neck or head, I'm pretty sure she found it over on our side of the fence already like that. I put up a game cam and havent gotten a pic of anything this week. My parents said they saw a huge owl a while back, so that has me wondering if that owl is nabbing a duck and taking it elsewhere? The ducks that have came up missing are the smaller ones, theyre still fairly big but are smaller than all the rest.

    I figured you've been in there. :D The thing i'm wondering is if the springs have gotten weak and need replaced, they may be letting the clutch shoes out too quick and the motor isnt making any rpm. I hear thats common on my model. But what the hell do I know, mine doesnt run!:lol3

    Sounds like an owl! They'll eat what they can knab and love brains. I just missed the pretty gruesome killing of a smallish squirrel on our front lawn by an owl. Sounded like a murder at first until Mr. Owl dispatched of him. Next morning the brainectomy was laid out for all to see. The body was in tact. Nature isn't necessarily pretty, but still is awesome.

    I've heard that Owls will kill roosting Turkeys and just eat the heads. 3rd hand passed down info tho.

    When I was a kid in Southern Arkansas I asked my Dad why the tenant farmers and land owners had notched scythes mounted on poles near their chicken coops. He said, " The Hawks and Owls light on the top of the scythe and as their grip relaxes it cuts their gripping tendons and they starve".

    Don't tell Gus.

    Owl > ducks. At least owls serve a purpose in controlling vermin. Ducks just make racket and shit everywhere. :lol3

    Interesting. I've seen plenty of owls, I've just not seen any large enough to carry an adult duck off. That seems to be what may be happening though!

    Our ducks are pretty cool, we have a few different breeds, our Runner Ducks are our favorite. They stand upright and look like a bowling pin, they really have some personalities too. I hope we dont lose many more!
