Was in the deer blind looking out the windows and could hear something coming but couldn't see it a minute later it head butted the blind twice, I stick my head out the window to see what it was and it walked around and was attempting to put its head in the blind after a few minutes of whispering and motioning to go away eventually pulled my mask off and yelled to go away.
What is yalls oddest visitor you have had while in the blind?

There is a family that lives across the road from my deer lease, and they have three dogs that often come to our side of the road, probably looking for food in our camp. Last year, I walked to my box blind (almost 1/2 mile from camp) for an afternoon hunt. A few minutes after I got settled in, the big black and white mutt appeared on the edge of my clearing, a couple hundred yards from my blind. He walked back and forth across the field, and finally came over to my blind and curled up about 10 feet in front of me and went to sleep. I let him be, and almost forgot he was there. About an hour later, a nice 8 point buck came into the clearing and I shot him. The dog jumped up at the shot and ran away. I've never seen him since.

There is a doe that is 5 or 6 years old now, that was born and raised very close to our cabin and has gotten used to people. I've had trouble with her while pig hunting from a tree stand at night. If she gets wind of me, she will stomp and snort at the base of the tree. Shining a flashlight at her sometimes work, other times I have to drop something on her.

She also comes to the sound of the feeder being filled. I guess she has learned that there is always corn spilled.

I had a red-tailed hawk land on top of my tower blind. I banged on the roof, he dropped a turd as he flew away.

Couple weeks ago, I was about half asleep in the blind. Heard a weird scratching noise on top. Then, BAM BAM BAM. Scared the carp out of me. I shook the blind and a wood pecker flew over and landed on top of the feeder and started banging on the top of that. Dinner bell I guess. Had 3 does walk up about 5 minutes after.

Last year, I had about 10 cows show up at the feeder. Thought the hunt would be over but waited it out. At about dark, the cows spooked and a heard a hogs came running up to the feeder. It was interesting watching the hogs chase off the remaining cows. Ended up shooting 2 pigs out of that group.

Should have given it a big ol' open hand slap across the nose......probably would have made less noise than trying to "shoo" it away..... clap

My problem has been coons. 3 or 4 times now, I have had raccoons climb the ladder to the tree or tripod stand I was in. It sounds weird to be hog hunting in the pitch black dark and hear something coming up the ladder.

The coolest visitor I ever had while hunting was an owl. I was in my tree climber in E TX deer hunting. I had worn my gillie and was looking out over a scrape and all of a sudden the owl landed on a branch right next to me. I could have literally reached out and touched was that close! Coolest thing that ever happened while hunting.

I was sitting in my tripod about 25 yards from a feeder and well hidden in some cedar. I was totally decked out in camo and had my crossbow laying on the front rail ready to kill any pig that showed up and this little wren landed on the bow string and started dancing back and forth. It stayed about 30 seconds before it flew off. I've also had squirrels get uncomfortably close when I'm up in a tree stand, a shriek owl who just knew there was something wrong with "that bush" next to his perch, and way too often the dang donkey comes around to raid the feeder.

They didn't come to my blind but I had 3 Sandhill cranes come to my feeder every day for a week, just south of Falfurrias.

I had a hawk fly in on top of me as I sat in a tripod once. As it few toward me from a couple hundred yards away we made eye contact. It few directly at me. I think it could see my eyes and thought I was an easy target. At about 15 feet, I waved my arms, this sucker had both landing gear down as it came to a stop in mid flight about 3 feet from me. It's reversing thruster sounded like a
Jet taking off.

Got so frustrated with cows one time I reached out and smacked one on the arse as it went by. Big mistake, she ran off, stopped at 25 yards, turned around and spent the next hour staring at the blind.

Couple of dudes pretending to be lost, opening morning of pronghorn season in Abbott, NM, many years ago. People out there go plumb nuts out there trying to shoot a pronghorn.
