    Yep, we should make an action figure and patent it. We could advertise it as having real reflexive lying action.

    Last year my wife and I were looking at some land to purchase. We had visited once and walked the boundaries and checked out the pond and fell in love. A few days later we went back, with an offer in hand, to walk the wooded area and found 2 huts similar to this tucked into a thick area. My wife lost her mind and forbid me to buy the property.

    Did you happen to take any pictures of the huts? This was found in Western Iowa. Not far from Nebraska...

    Just the other week went to take my dog for a walk at the game lands. Drove to the back parking lot and there was a truck and a suv with the door open and a guy standing behind it. Next thing you know a woman pops up her head. She stands up straightens her self out and sits in the car seat. I go about my business headed down the trail with my dog turn back to see them going back at it. They didn't waste any time.

    Me and 3 buddies were night fishing a boat launch/access that was next to an Indian burial ground on Leech Lake. We had a side by side and as we were leaving me and friend were sitting in the box facing backwards. I have not seen anything like this before in my life... But I will swear until the day I die that we both saw an Indian Chief ghost standing in the cemetery with his arm pointed at as (signaling to get out). We saw it at the exact same time, looked at each other immediately, and both yelled WHAT WAS THAT. Had it only been me that saw it I would have dismissed it as something else, but we most certainly saw a ghost/spirit that night.

    Haven't been back to that access since and never will.

    I found a scene of a suicide while heading out fishing one day. That was by far the creepiest thing I have seen in the woods.

    Not creepy but I had a sugar glider land on me once at about 4 am and I had to check my pants.

    There is a place in East Ky I hunt where people say devil worshipers hang out. Lots of satanic spray paintings on the rocks there. The place does have a creepy vibe at times.

    Never seen anything creepy...but there's an ancient trail that goes up a long a steep hill between two bluffs, you can see it cut deep into the ground from thousands of years of use as it zigzags up the hill. I get a REAL creepy feeling and the hair stands up on the back of my neck when I use the trail at night...I don't like it.

    I saw a water mocassin nearly as thick as my forearm while scouting deer one summer in SC. I never want to see one again.

    Ok in all my years I've seen some very creepy and strange things.. but some of you guys have mine beat by a mile!.
    Scary is my two bear encounters. Creepy is being in the woods with no weapon but my gutting knife all alone at midnight. Gutting my deer after waiting to retrieve it with flash light in my mouth. I look up to find several sets of eyes 30 Yards away around me watching. I just started making as much sound with that flash light clenched in my teeth as I could and kept gutting the deer. Had an owl sweep in and grab my foot while turkey hunting. Had anotber at dusk barely miss my head as it swooped in and killed a feral cat walking up the road in front of me.

    I did see some black white faced range cattle one time that looked like floating skulls in the dark. Startled me a bit.

    I saw an escaped inmate from the county jail run right by my stand. Shortly followed by a gazillion law enforcement people. Ruined my hunt.
