    I was hunting turkey and not seeing much. I was calling every few min. when all of a sudden I saw this blur . It was a big tom cat. It came on a full run and attacked my hen decoy. I was stunned to see a cat and a turkey decoy rolling on the ground. The cat left as fast as he came.

    Had the same thing happen with a yote once. I guess he liked the taste of foam because he took a big chunk out of the decoy.

    Ive had a couple of strange things happen in the woods!
    The one that comes to mind the most happened about 3 to 4 years ago,i was up on a ridge looking down and on the ground and heard something walking up behind me, turned my head and seen something black. started to turn slowly to shoot a turkey and at about 12yards coming around a giant oak was a black bear the first ive ever seen while hunting i looked at him he looked at me and then ran!
    I forgot i even had a bow in my hand.
    Where i hunt we do not have bears!

    Saw a mountain lion/cougar once on our place.....I live in Okla. It was from distance though, 100yrds, but my cousin who hunts with me at times had a huge one walk past his stand at about 20 yrds. He won't go out on our place without a pistol now.

    Back in the 70's when I was hunting in our bottom land I saw an unexpainable light moving through the tree tops. Still gives me chill bumps to this day.

    A couple years ago, I'm sitting in a ladder stand, during an afternoon hunt. I was being entertained by a chipmunk running back and forth, right in front of my stand. After about an hour of watching him, something "falls" out of the tree in front of me. That something, ended up being a hawk. Needless to say it was the end of my entertainment. Was pretty cool to see up close though.
