    Dan's post got me to thinking of scary things that happen to all of us while in the woods. My most scary thing was simalar to Dan's but ended up a whole lot better but was partly caused by me. When I was about 20 years old that would be 1983 I thought I was invinceable, and I was so good I didn't need a flashlight to get in and out of the woods. I was hunting private land and was walking out of the swamp and my uncle always told me that if you ever get shot at you will hear the bullet before the shot and he was right, While walking out of that swamp with "NO" light on (STUPID) I hear a bullet whiz right past my right shoulder and then BANG. I hit the ground and shouted and by time I got the nerve to stand and look for the SOB I never did see anybody but that was to close me and the start of why I love to bowhunt more than guns any day!!

    I don't think that I would ever go anywhere without a flashlight after something like that. That would definetly scare the crap out of me.

    Fricking idiots out there shooting at sounds instead of identifying their targets. I tell you, they should just have their licenses taken away. Man you sure were lucky. I know that come gun season up here, you better have a light on. I've heard shots go off in the dark just before light. Can't get over that mentality. Where were they for hunter's safety class?

    That is scary stick, just glad it didnt hit ya. I had one similar years ago at a local bow club i belonged to. I was walking the practice course shooting 3-d and was approaching the tower platform when i started hearing bullets wizzing by my head. I hit the ground and started yelling and they stopped comming. ended up it was a guy that had a get away cabin close by with a pond behind it. he was shooting into the water and the bullets were richocheing off the water and into the woods where i was at. I can still hear them cutting leaves in the trees as they went by.

    The scary things in the woods around here are weed crops. There are a lot, and the growers put up some nastey traps. Thats why I try to go in with a buddy or places I've been before. They also sell and make meth out in the woods its crazy.

    I've had similar experiences but It didn't involve a flash light. My experience involved an a hole who decided to trespass and shoot at a deer on my dad's land and that bullet hit the exact tree I was in but on the opposite side. That SOB damn near got his *** kicked by a 14 year old at the time. I was steaming!!

    I'm glad you made It through the whole ordeal there Walt. It's good to have you around!!

    Tell ya what scared the heck outa me once , I was on my way to meet one of my hunting buddies for a lunch break and on my way though the thick brush he was in there waiting.
    As I was passing by him he reaches out and grabs my arm real fast and pulls me in , I didn't know what to think but it just freak me out.

    Scarry crap Walt! That's one thing I never have done and never will do, enter the dark woods without a flashlight. Glad it didn't turn out worse.
