Yesterday morning, my husband and I were hunting a stand next to a creek bed. While he was hanging a stand on the tree where my ladder stand is so we could hunt together, we heard some noise coming from the other side of the creek. It was getting pretty light out because we were late getting in the woods. Anyhow, he was in the tree and I was still on the ground waiting for him to get set up and had both bows on the ground with me. I thought about knocking an arrow when I heard the noise but had just lost a deer a few days back and wasn’t confident from where I was standing that I could make a good shot. As the noise became louder I saw 3 brown blurs getting closer to me… I thought they were fawns as they came charging my direction nearly 15 yards away and luckily decided to go back in the creek bed. As I peaked around the tree to watch them, I heard growling and rustling of leaves… it was actually 3 VERY large coyote. All I could think about was that I had no arrow knocked and my husband’s bow was on the ground still. Luckily they ran back the way they had came from and never even saw me on the ground. When I got in the stand I looked up at my husband and shared that, that was NOT my favorite moment in hunting! I actually almost screamed and my husband couldn’t believe that I didn’t but I figured it really wouldn’t help my case if I shrieked.

So this crazy experience has got me thinking. What is the craziest/scariest thing that’s ever happened to you in the woods?
