Remember walking through some damn field larks when I was a kid. Every other step 'FLUSH' and away one went. Scared an 11-yr old pretty good.

Last year I got barked at by some coyotes but that pissed me off more than anything.

Walking up on a covey of birds at night has to be a more memorable one.....talk about making you jumpy.

None this year so far.

Once as a smaller kid I watched a b rated bigfoot movie late the night before opening morning waiting for dad to get home to go to the lease. The next morning every broken twig gust of wind or crunching leaf could have been bigfoot scared

Not really scary but did make my heart beat a little. I was walking in the dark, I usually have a flashlight but don't use it. I heard something in front of me took a few more steps and it sounded closer and then it grunted I knew it was a hog. Flipped on my light and there was about a 150 pound coal black bore standing less than 10 feet infront of me I got my 270 off my shoulder as fast as I could and chambered a round but never got a shot. I think he was just as riled up as I was.

not in Texas but in 2002 my brother and I ran into a young boar grizzly while hunting blactail in agonagh. Armed with nothing but bows 300lb bear charged from 50yds only to stop at 10yds stand up on his hind legs and then tore off up the hill.

skipped the hunt the next year after that one and when we did go back we brought guns, haven't been back with a bow since

walked to my ground stand using only the moonlight to see. Stepped in and set down on medal chair. Something banged the bottom of the chair and I hightailed it out of the blind. With no flashlight I had to stay outside until the sun came up. I just knew there had to be something the size of a grizzly bear in my stand. At first light I peaked in and saw the monster. A very small armadillo.

Couple of years ago at an old stand, I had about a 300 yard walk up a sandy road to the stand. About halfway to the stand I had a sow start paralleling me early one morning about 20 yards out in the brush. Pitch black, no flashlight, it could have been a lion for all I knew. lol. I guess she couldn't hear me walking in the sand.

Got in stand, heart racing, waiting for day break. She stayed out in the brush rummaging around until the feeder went off, and out she walks.. felt like an idiot lol

Ring tailed cats....me too. I was climbing up into a tall blind, through a hatch in the bottom of the blind. I stuck my head up in there just to make sure there were no owls or such. But an entire family of ringtailed cats were on the other side of the upright trap door, where I couldn't see them. When I got my upper body through the hole, the ring-tails shot out from behind that raised trap door and scared the absolute ____ out of me. They ran in circles around the inside of the blind and then jumped past me, in the gap between my chest and the sides of the opening. It all happened in probably 3 seconds.

Last year, i kept a big plastic tool box under my tower stand filled up with corn for the senderos, as i got tired of buying bags of corn for it. One morning before daylight, as i walked up against it to get in my tower stand, a dam coon came flying out by it touching the front if my boots! That dam coon chewed a hole in it and was feasting on corn on the inside of it. Guess he didnt figure out he was in trouble till i was next to it. He let out that dam growl thing they do. Scared the crap out of me.

About 6 years ago in Colorado, I was taking a friend Elk hunting in a fairly good spot. We walked in, I dropped him off at his spot and proceeded to mine. I had walked maybe, 500 yards in a burn area and down into a shallow depression about 3 acres in size.
I get half way through and the smell hit me, Elk, strong as could be, I walked maybe 30 more yards and the ground exploded. Apparently I had walked into a herd of bedded elk somehow and all I could do was stand tall and covered my face and chest with my arms. I could see them cresting over the bowl edge in the moon light pretty good, looked like around 30 head, how I didn't get ran over is beyond me.

I've had several but just last Sunday I got bird dogged by a very healthy angus cow for over 700 yds before picked up by another hunter. I was about to use my rifle as a bat and put some parts under a warranty test.

Back in the 70's I was walking to my stand, full moon so I didn't have a light. While walking through the woods I saw something hanging from a tree that looked like a human body. Needless to say the brakes came on rather rapidly. I remember moving left then right and finally saw that someone cleaned a deer and what was left of the deer was in front of a yaupon bush. Can't remember for sure but I'm pretty sure I spotted my drawers. It was also the last time I went out without a light.
