ive have acouple good ones...
the first happened in IN and its probably been the most freaked out ive ever been... I was up there hunting with my good buddy Ron Brown (who id gotten my blueticks from) and we were WAY out on a farm road by a few big patches of woods and a creek that ran through them. closest house was 20 miles away. wed just casted the dogs and were leaned up against the tailgate chatting... lights were off but i could see something dark moving on the light colored road way down from us... i didnt mention it at first because i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but i kept watching and kept seeing it so i pointed it out to Ron. we kept watching it and the closer it got you could tell it was big. by this point wed quit talking and were just staring at this thing coming up the road to us. then it gets close enough you can tell its a person, wearing a black cloak with the hood pulled up over his head and white skin... at this point ive just about climbed on top of Rons head. because were WAY out in the middle of nowhere and theres no 'normal' reason someone should be out here in the middle of the nite walking around. im not afraid of animals but people can be sick. Ron tries to say hello!, no response. now hes close enough to tell hes mumbling some chant in a language i couldn't identify, im trying to convince Ron we gotta go, like now... he says no, he could need help.... calls out again- hello! are you ok? no response, keeps chanting and walking towards us... ive gotten up next to the truck with the door open and my hand on my gun... Ron tries again- "are you ok? do you need help?" he never acknowledged us at all... keeps walking past chanting... were standing there looking at each other and i watch him to make sure hes continuing on and then i go to screaming for our dogs... i was ready to get outa dodge. by the time our dogs come to us Ron tells me "well i have found slaughtered goats with candles and pentagrams in the woods before" so i guess he was out there doing some cult or satanic ritual or something... i was SO freaked out. the guy was heading deeper in the woods and we'd gone miles down roads without seeing a car or house, then down several old farm roads and even come though a locked gate....
another time here in FL, i was hunting a mobility impaired area on management land that the coon club used to get a special permit to hunt. it was early fall, nice weather about midnight or so... and i was hunting alone. i was hunting my old doc dog and a 7mo pup out of my max dog. doc had been trailing up this creek and id heard the pup open a few times so id moved my truck closer, parked on a powerline and was listening. Doc located and started treeing and id heard the pup start whining and squeaking and carrying on like she wanted to tree so i rushed in there to her to encourage her. when i got in there i leashed them up and was shining the tree and encouraging the puppy and all of a sudden i heard the loudest howl/scream sound id ever heard. and it was close. Doc hit the ground like hed been hit over the head with a log and my puppy almost knocked me over trying to get underneath me. i was immediately covered in goose bumps and every hair i had was standing on end. i heard limbs breaking and i grabbed the dogs and we were in an all out sprint to the truck. poor old doc normally had to be picked up on to the tailgate normally, because he was getting old. but when i dropped the tailgate this time both dogs slammed into the dog box doors in a panic trying to get in the dog box... i jumped in the truck and got gone. ive heard bobcats and panthers, coyotes, foxes and owls and all that but this wasnt like anything id ever heard. a few years later i was watching one of those bigfoot shows, not one of the "big foot hunter" type shows but more of a scientific, fact vs fiction, is it possible type shows and they were playing recordings that could not be identified by science as being made by a known animal. every hair stood up and i got covered in goosebumps again. i dont know what that thing was but apparently theres more of them out there
a couple funny stories to go along with it where i got scared...
i was going to hunt an area in the WMA close to a grave yard that had a little creek right behind it. pulled up there with my best friend, shes not a hunter but she would go with me from time to time. she already told me she wasnt wild about the grave yard, but i wanted to try it because the walking didnt look too bad... anyway it was COLD, so she was sitting in the truck with the heater going while i collared my dog. i walked around and shut the truck off so we could listen when we turned her loose... as soon as the lights went off my friend screamed bloody murder... scared the hell out of me lol
another nite she was with me we were hunting a young dog i had that was really something BUT he chewed like a BEAVER... so we would have to stop and listen or stop and get the ol' quick track out to find him if hed shut down into chewing mode... naturally hed treed in the worst area of the lease i was on and we were making our way in there and stopped to listen.... as soon as i turned my light back on to continue forward, out of a hollow log about eye level shot out a HUGE moth and went straight to my light (which was also my face)... i let out one big holler cuz i just knew id been had. big foot had reached out of the darkness to grab me and kill me. i realized pretty quick what really happened before i went into panic mode. but it was too late for my friend, she was in full panic. she was screaming like something had a hold of her... all she knew was i never scream and when i had she just knew we were both dead LOL we still laugh about those two times...
