Dad, back some years ago, said he was hunting with my BiL (who is scared of the dark), and it was pitch dark and they were walking the mile back to Dad’s truck, when a panther (dad’s guess) yowled and screeched. He said he turned to my BiL and said “you think that was a panther”,but the BiL was gone. Dad said there was a glove on the ground and another glove about 40 yards away but no BiL. He had dashed all the way to the truck and was inside with the doors locked. I should kid him more about that than I do.

Not scared but highly concerned. Went for a hike late one night near the house in the hills on north side of San Antonio. Come out of the bush and got lit up by a sheriff patrol. I don't know which of us was most surprised. We had a very interesting conversation.

I was hunting pigs at night, by myself, in a popup. Heard some rocks getting kicked around behind me, like an animal stumbeling then a long growl twice. The window was closed in the direction of the sounds. Had the AR 223 and 45. Still didn't have the guts to get out to see what it was for several minutes. Still get goose bumps when I think or talk about the adventure. Did leave the area quickly.
Kind of silly with all that fire power.

Had an owl attack my foxpro last weekend around 7:00 AM. Pretty cool to see. As far as being scared, not really. Although I've heard some really weird things out in the woods that made me move quicker getting to the blind.

I have been swooped by owls more than once. I suspect it happens more than we realize and if you are not paying attention, you can easily miss it.

While sitting in a ground blind, I heard a rustling inside the blind with me about 2 a.m. I figured it was field mouse. Then I could hear the sound passing under me and so I turned on a light and saw a 2 foot long copperhead slithering between my boots...just passing through. That unnerved me enough that night that when I saw him exit the blind out one side, I went out the other.

Spooked a few times maybe but never scared.

About the only thing that would scare me in the US is if I came across some some
Meth heads or something drug related. they would probably out Gun me and be stupid enough to shoot at me.

Wasnt varmint hunting, but was out at the place late one night. Just had to go check cameras before the honeymoon so I made the drive, got there around midnight. Sort of spur of the moment and I was still dressed for work. Put my pistol on and started walking. I had a little larry light flash light and that was it. Couldn't find the first camera in the dark so went to the second one. Stumbled into the first camera on the way back out and ended up hitting the fence line(which meant I was headed the wrong way). I may or may not have broken into a trot at a couple points throughout that walk. Only other time I have been concerned is when we had a truck idling in the driveway of the place. Got a call from sister in law saying someone was in the driveway and as I came out the front door an amount of engine noise I can only equate to a nascar race flew by. I was convinced it was Red Dawn all over again for a good 30 seconds. I do enjoy telling my non hunting buddies to watch out for the bears when they go to use a tree somewhere. lol

I was climbing into a brush blind in the dark one time in S. Texas and stepped on an armadillo. I'm pretty sure I jumped about as high as the armadillo did.
