I realize I am a grown man, armed. But my lease situation is I am usually the only who goes and spends the night.

I get a little bored after the sun goes down, have a fire and cook dinner. My mind starts playing tricks on me, hearing things. This happen to anyone else?

Only afraid people answer please. I'm not uneasy about meth tweakers or zombies, mainly little girl ghost.

When I bow hunt on Ft Hood I get there about 2 hours before daylight so I can walk to my blind and let things settle down before daylight. You can't have a handgun for a sidearm on Ft Hood and there have been a few times when I was way out in the boonies and it was very dark and my mind tried to wander. Never actually was scared just a weird feeling like I was being watched and was basically helpless with just a bow in the dark.

Also when I was in Afghanistan this last time we did 90% of our foot patrols at night so when I first came back I was kind of uneasy in the woods at night. I guess my senses were so keen I was hearing every single noise stopping and looking around haha.

It's normal. Humans are not normally solitary creatures. It is instinctive to be hyper-vigilant when you are alone in an unusual environment. My guess is that the unease gets better if you've been there a couple/few days.

I have spirits/ghosts where I hunt

makes the hair on your neck and arms stand up

several friends reported the same feeling when I let them
hunt in the canyon

if you think you're being followed or watched... probably
a spirit is trying to communicate with you and you may
be a sensitive

I get the willies and try to avoid certain spots when I am alone

I have a habit of taking embarrassing pics of a buddy of mine. I took this one at our lease in East Texas. I didn't see anything behind him when I took it, but it was there in the pic when we looked at it later. Look between the campers.

I was walking around looking for hogs in Erath county a few months ago I heard what I thought sounded like a Mountain Lion scream. Kind of freaked me out for a second but I got over it and didn't get eaten.

Not scared of much, but it's no fun camping alone. At least it isn't for me.

My lease is in West Tx so the only thing I really worry about is rattle snakes. Black Widows, brown recluse. Lether gloves and Chippewa boots make me feel good though

Yep, setting in a pop up blind around 12:30 am hunten hogs (by myself of course). Heard a noise behind me, dark as hell, shifting of rocks then a slow low growl. Had 45, 308 & 223 with me. Still stayed in blind for another 20-30 minutes.

My take of ghosts, spirits, etc. if it can put its hands on me or hurt me, I can do the same to it. Don't worry me that much. Tweakes are another story, they are really unpredictable.

I'm very alert, all senses running 100%.

But I am not afraid. I will fear no evil, and I am the most lethal predator on the continent.

Chippewas and a shovel and I am good. Was alone a couple weeks ago and the copperheads were attacking but I won and took 3 of their army out. Delayed my dinner a bit.
