What's the scariest thing that's happened to you innawoods?

Summer of 2015 I had a guy follow me and my friends while backpacking through the Sawtooth Mountains in northern Minnesota.
It was raining for about three or four days straight and my friends were getting really pissy about the weather but really pushed ourselves through the terrain once we noticed that sometimes on the trails we kept seeing the same guy behind us, but he would never pass us or make a camp in the same campsite. It must've been five days of seeing the guy about 100 yards behind us without him passing, and then he stopped appearing after a group of a dozen or so college girls passed us in the other direction. It was kinda weird. The youngest of our group kept saying somebody was in our campsite in the middle of the night but nobody wanted to go see.

Not /x/ stuff, but this is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me.
I hiked in Colombia once, and I must admit we went to a red zone without considering how fucked up it could be.
We were walking innawoods with a group of friends when suddenly a pick-up passed by our side screaming “¡Viene la guerrilla! (The guerrilla is coming). We ran as far as we could, and eventually got to a safe place. I had never felt so scared in my life.

My friends bought a huge chunk of property in southern Colorado in the San Luis Valley. I went out for a month to clear 10 acres of forest for greenhouses to be built. I was there by myself the entire time and had to stay in a tent because there was no infrastructure yet. One night I was sitting on the edge of this overlook before bed and the entire canyon below me lit up with a huge flash of light and then was gone immediately. I was kinda freaked out, but got over it and just went to bed. A few days later I was talking to a rancher a couple miles down the road and he said the morning after the night of the flash he found 3 of his cows in that canyon with all the blood drained out of their bodies and their eyes and some of their organs were removed. There weren't any tire tracks or any sign of struggle whatsoever near the cows. And let me tell you, this property was in the middle of NOWHERE. Needless to say I was pretty freaked out the rest of my time out there. Lots of weird shit like that was going and the entire area just had a very weird "vibe". I'm normally a very pragmatic person and not interested in the supernatural at all, but after my time in the San Luis Valley, I'm not so sure anymore.

>fence off trail
>fine you $200 if you're behind the fence

>>1514735
I don't want to get a $200 fine to use my local trail. And yes, the park rangers and game wardens patrol the spot. And yes, even at night and on off seasons, since it's on game lands and they want to discourage poachers. I even ran into a game warden on that trail in the middle of a snowstorm on superbowl sunday evening a couple years ago, since they saw my parked car and wanted to make sure I wasn't a poacher and not staying overnight

But no, when some cityfaggot yuppie falls off the waterfall because they wanted to take a selfie on the edge suddenly their friends' ee fees get hurt if the paramedics don't send out 20 people to go fetch them. And then the paramedics aren't there when someone actually needs them in town.
They should do what NH does and charge inadequately prepared people for search and rescue.
>>
>>1514866
its not edgy at all, hows a fucking mistake of a not prepared dumbass a reason to close a trail? Just put warnings, so its under peoples fault and they cant sue the goverment.
>>
>>1514783
actually spooky
>>
>>1514893
It really isn't. I could see a reason for closing the trail while they get the dead bodies out, but fuck that too, honestly. People need to see more corpses. It's a natural part of life, after all.

I was in Estonia camped in a field hidden from some gopnik highrises across the way. Had been paranoid about bears while in this country and had incredibly realistic dream while innatent of a bear sniffing the back of my head from outside through the fabric. Woke up covered in sweat despite the cold night and heard something scamper away, was probably a fox.
>>
Was tripping on our good friend fungus at night and walked down the same 50-100 meter stretch of trail like 10 times. Legit every time I thought I went down it the same path and scenery just started over. Like the forest dun't let me leave.
>>
>>1515434
At one point some dude walked up the opposite way fairly briskly and was puffing, was like he was going through the same thing and trying to escape.

I was with my friends and the friend at the front of the line started jogging at one point, I never asked why but I guess he was trying to get out of there too.

Nothing, unless your caught, biggest I've had was a 78 dollar fine, was walked out of the park like I was a child. I'm always going in closed down trails or parks, so one caught out of hundreds is cool.

Recently spent three nights camping on a mountain with some friends. We set up camp near the treeline. Every night there was a flickering light up on the peak. We were maybe 10km from the nearest settlement in any direction, and didnt see any signs of other people the whole time. No remnants of a fire up there either.

Years ago, hiking the Great Glen Way. There's four of us, two inexperienced (including me), and two with more experience. We've had a good day's hike but getting pretty tired. We've just passed through a small town. It's beginning to get dark and it's a still night. That means the midgies are coming out. If you've never been to Scotland you can't imagine the misery these fuckers cause: they don't suck blood or carry diseases, but they swarm around your face and itch and are just generally infuriating. The insect repellent isn't doing anything and we don't have bug nets. Eventually me and the other noob have had enough: we decide to just call it a night and pitch the tent right now to get away from the bugs. The others go on a bit further hoping to get away from them.

The midgies are so bad that we aren't even paying attention to our surroundings. Just trying to pitch the tent with one hand while covering our faces with the other and screaming profanities. Eventually we get it up and dive inside, zip up, and set about trying to kill all the bastards that gone in with us. Finally we're sealed inside our little quarantine. We settle down for the night.

1/2
>>
>>1515661
After a while, we can hear footsteps approaching. We're not far from the town and we didn't pay much attention to where we were pitching the tent, so we could still be pretty close to the trail. Anyway, the footsteps are getting closer, but only very slowly. Ten minutes pass and they still don't sound much closer. Eventually they get closer and closer until it sounds like whoever it is must be right outside our tent. But they keep going: the steps are totally regular, but they're coming from the same place, like he's walking on the spot. We're lying there in the tent wide awake, listening to this wondering what the fuck is going on. We can't open the tent and look out, or we'll get eaten alive by midgies. In some ways getting stabbed in a tent seems like a better option than going out into that midge storm. But this sound is starting to really unnerve us now. Eventually it starts to fade away, but it comes back again. This goes on for an hour or two before eventually we drift off to sleep.

In the morning, all's quiet at first. Then that fucking noise starts up again. Right next to us. Fuck it. We open up the tent and step outside to see what the hell's going on.

We're pitched next to a field. In the field there is a cow. The cow is eating grass. The chomping sounds exactly like footsteps. We are idiots.

I was hiking in a small-ish forest patch a bit outside Stockholm. Just wanted to go mushroom hunting but just hiked around looking at mushrooms. Wandered a little deeper into the forest and heard a creepy rustling sound coming from the uphill. I stopped and thought it would be another person since I saw man-made wooden trench like things there before. I stopped and started looking upwards.
Something was moving fast. It would stop and move. I only caught a glimpse of it twice. It wobbled left to right and was hunched over weirdly. Only saw the top of it's hairy head and hunched over hairy back. It seemed to be spying on me or something.
I stared at it for a while and took my knife out in case a rabid cunt charges at me. Nothing happened so I moved on.
The thing seemed to follow me for a bit but then I moved towards it to find out what was going on and it disappeared into the deeper part of the woods. Found broken trees and random burnt patches up there. Didn't freak me out, just confused me. Like a random patch of woods was just rotting in the middle of summer

I was camping in the bush by my house in Southern Ontario. I have a camp set up there so when I go for an overnight I can spend the day hunting squirrels & rabbits instead of setting up. Heard some unusual groaning noises throughout the day. Felt a little uneasy about it but I didn't look too much into it. Woke up in the middle of the night to the same groaning sounds and then something sprinted by my camp. It was probably just a deer or something but your imagination runs wild when you're alone in the bush in the middle of the night.

I've hike that trail to the overlook at the top. To be honest I was always surprised that so many people attempted it. It's not an easy hike at all. When I did it it was kind of washed out and there were parts where I was literally climbing with hands and feet all on the same surface. Awesome overlook though.

Also I agree fuck NY and fuck NJ so fucking hard

If yer ever in Oregon then head to Bohemian mountain: a massive rock outcropping with a spectacular view of Eastern Oregon and an old abandoned mining town a thousand feet below. One can see crystals twinkling in the rocky terrain on the assent to the ridgeline.

The place is known by locals for its, well.....let’s just say it has everything from “midnight light shows” to swelling cacophonous swirls is “tee-hee” laughter that what one can only imagine are pixies or some other wise and harmlessly mischievous inter dimensional forest entity.

It’s fucking wild up there. And beautiful.

one time I was hiking along GR-2 in France, and I was approaching Paris. I had been going for about a month, and met very few people on the trail. My primary interactions were with people in towns that I went through, who asked very few questions.

One night, I was pushing through after sunset, and I see a pair of glowing eyes moving towards me. I strike a defensive position, but I am unarmed because yurop lollll.

As the beast approaches, I begin to get a better view of the outline of this creature. It is plump, low to the ground and moving quickly. I flip on my headlamp, and see that it is none other than Lena Dunham who is approaching me, crab walking with great speed.

I cast off my back pack, and as gets within striking distance, I jump into the air, performing a flip, before bringing by heel down on her face, splitting it wide open. From there, I decided to call the authorities, who handled it from there. Weird chick, that Lena.

I mean, they were probably more afraid of me than I was of them, but fuck, that still was pretty scary. Would do it again though, but would want to bring a dog or a companion with me. Problem is, I don't have a dog and my friends don't like wild camping.

I was hiking a 12 mile loop to see some water falls in Big Basin one time and misjudged how long it would take and ended up hiking in pitch darkness with 3 miles of strenuous terrain to go. It was bad enough to hike with just enough light to see 10ft in front of me i started hearing steps that was in sync with me. I thought it could be a person but i had stopped several times already and never once did someone pass me. With a mile to go, i distinctly heard the steps being out of sync to mines. It was like split second faster. That last mile constantly pointing the light behind me trying to catch eyes reflecting still gives me the heebie jeebies.

Autumn 2018, Tatry
It was such a warm autumn, normaly, there would be much snow at the higher parts, but luckily there wasn't any.
I decided to hike at Zawrat, very popular trail at the season, but at the time, it weren't many people, almost none.
I went from mountain safehouse, and i haven't met any people for like 5 hours, and suddenly pic related.
A crow eating a sandwich, a backpack which it opened, left by someone at the middle of a narrow trail.
When i got closer, bird fly away with a chocolate candybar, up to the peaks.
I came closer and i saw that next to that opened backpack is a graveyard candle.
Crow took out some things from that backpack, like a wallet, which he opened too some medical bills.
I checked it, and through he may want to commit suicide, because i heard about very simmiliar things about that place.
I was looking for the body, but i didn't find anything.
I through he may go at the Orla Perć, and do something from there, but decided to just wait.
Half hour later, i saw someone coming down.
It was some 16 year old student, who ran from the school, and he was suprised, that something ate his sandwiches.

Not woods story, but country side.
I was at my home about 10 miles out of town near the wine vineyards and the local river. There were lots of vicious coons and other critters out and about, so I was used to hearing the usual noises. I started to notice some every large coyotes in the area, and started to bring my great grandfathers Winchester with me when I went out side to do my degenerate teenage pot smoking. I wasn't going to let my cats get killed and I did not want them getting comfortable wandering onto my property (no fencing at all).
Well one night I'm sitting on the back steps in the breeze way, which was atttached to a vacant building next to my home, and was open on both sides. I was already paranoid due to the cannabis, and hyper aware of every little noise. I hear a rustle inside of the vacant building, and then the deepest, loudest growl I've ever heard. A cougar mixed with a bear is what It sounded like. Out of no where, something fucking SLAMS into the door from the inside. At the time, I weighed maybe 150lbs and there was no way in hell I could've hit it that hard even sprinting at full speed. I immediately cocked my rifle and then realized this little carbine probably wouldn't be sufficient, and quickly ran inside. The next morning, I went to investigate - worrying it might still be inside. There wasn't anything living as far as I could tell, but what i did find told me whatever it was -it was big. The inside of the door (which I was 3 feet away from) was caved in. As wide as the frame and almost from the floor to the ceiling. This was one of the few times I felt true fear.

Around freshman year of highschool, a good friend of mine and my girlfriend joined me on a camping trip up in the hills. It was a legitimate site with lots of trails and a creek and generally a nice place to hangout for the weekend. Well we went on a night walk down about a half mile away from the camp, just chatting and having a good time. One of us brought up cougars, and how they are in the area and that we should probably be careful
>yeah that'd be fucking scary! I mean we got knives but a mountain lion? It'd fuck us up!
Immediately after we continue, a huge fucking buck leaps out of the bush less than 8 inches in front of me, it was close enough that I could smell it. For that fraction of a second, time slowed to a stop and I as convinced that this was it - I was going to get my throat torn out and my girlfriend would have to watch me gurgle and bleed to death as a cougar mauls me. While we laughed it off, I honestly almost shit myself. I always had this macho preconceived notion of "i'll die with a fight!". It was a very sobering experience of how little I would actually be able to do when caught off guard, in the dark, on a hill, in territory that isn't mine.
We walked back up to the tent and didn't do any more night walks for the rest of the trip.

What did your parents say? This can't be the end of the story.
>>
>>1520690
I was living with just my mom at the time, father had passed away a year or two prior. She didn't know what to make of it. The vacant building wasn't ours so we didn't have to deal with the damage (it was already run down).
That pretty much is the end, that's why it still spooky to me. Besides the raccoons going ballistic and the occasional coyote coming too close, there was never anything else like that. I know for a fact there were hogs in the area, but I'd only seen them by the river and the house was at least a mile away from that, and I've never heard a boar make that kind of noise before.

There is one that sticks with me even now, its not a major innawoods one as it happened at a camping site in North Wales.
I was young at the time and it was on the usual annual familyncamping trip. Now the site is small, only a few fields and a dogwalking field in the back, and some trees and scrub. There is also a small stream further back into the trees.
>https://www.google.com/maps/@52.9374632,-4.2570372,131m/data=!3m1!1e3
The campsite on google maps

Anyway, it was night and as usual I was off playing in the fields when I decided to head to the stream. To get there I usually entered the dog walking field (the one that looks mowed with some hay bails) and headed to the NW corner to cross the stream there and enter the copse of trees.
As I closed with my crossing point I didnt feel anything was wrong but as I got there I started feeling a bit spooked, like I was being watched. Still I pressed ahead and was going to cross when I heard a snarling growl from up in the trees. I looked up and saw a pair of green eyes, almost glowing, staring down at me from very high up.
I turned around and booked it out of there strait it was but it scared the shit out of 9 - 10 year old me.ht back to my family. To this day I do not know what it was, but it scared 9 - 10 year old me shitless.

After getting back to civilization I Googled: "blood-curdling scream in the woods animal?" Led to a NatGeo article and had a video with vixen fox calls. Perfectly matched the sound I heard. I felt really retarded after that.

I’ve never had anything real spooky happen to me but I end up freaking myself out every time I look up at the stars when I’m /out/.

My Grandpa is mildly known for UFO encounters he’s had. Published a few books, gets invited to speak places/on radio etc. He used to be a proper Wyoming mountain man a billion years ago before he became an engineer, and he has these stories about encounters out there, with the beings laying out his life’s plan for him and shit.

I’m very much a skeptic in most things but never sure if I should believe him or not; he’s an honest, rational, sane man in all other aspects, and other members of my family claim to recall certain aspects of these encounters when they were present.

He’s also told me that one day, they’ll show up for me. And most of the time I don’t believe it at all, but when I’m out innawoods looking at the sky by myself, I find myself thinking “what if it’s tonight?” and freaking myself out.

One night, I was thinking that, and two hovering lights showed up in the sky, rapidly getting closer to me. After a certain distance, it stopped and shined it’s light directly on me. I was about to shit my fucking pants hard enough to bore a hole in the rock, until it got closer and I realized it was a helicopter. No idea what or who they were looking for.

Another night I saw a weird ass moving crescent light during a meteor shower, no one else saw it, but for all I know it’s a standard phenomenon. Still not sure what to believe. Maybe my grandpa’s nuts. Maybe it’s already happened and they wiped my memory. But it sure makes being /out/ alone at night nerve wracking.

2 buddies & I were night diving in the Puget Sound hunting for prawns. It was ~01:00 & we were ~100ft deep, in the pitch black. We like to do this thing where we get in a circle, turn off our lights, then stir up the water, & watch the bio-luminescence float around us like floating stars in a black watery space. Only this time after we turn off our lights, the water glows just enough to reveal a 4th person sitting w/ us. We were at a dive resort so it wasn't so odd to see another diver, only that it was 01:00 & we'd seen no one else prepping a dive at the dock. He was also alone which was odd considering the dangerous conditions of a night dive in those waters, plus he had no fins or gloves.

We wore drysuits because it was so cold but this guy was in a wetsuit w/ exposed skin & we thought that we saw a giant gash in one of his legs. The 3 of us all noticed him & we were too scared to move. It is absolutely terrifying when someone just appears 100ft underwater at night. I can hear my buddies panting into their regulators. The guy just simply smiled at us & waved before swimming away.
>>
>>1523113
Fuck bro that’s terrifying

My initial assumption was you found and old corpse or something
>>
Well, various redneck cousins/ friends of the family have dumped old cars and other things in the woods by some land my family owns. Always wanted to take a friend out there to see how scared they get

especially to the what little is left of an old Boomtown that the forest just ate. You know, some sheep walls. Without telling them the history of it. One time I saw the foundations of a house, that looked modern that seemed to have imploded.

And a wall of brambles that looked straight out of a fairy tale next to a small water fall and little pond.

it'd creep my paranormal believing friends right out

>>
>>1518832
Yeah. Place is full of Israelis. Camping in India is actually really hard to do like in the US due to the forest departments in most states having put in some fairly strict restrictions over the last few decades. Many states mandate you take a guide with you, and getting a permit is annoying. Honestly, I mainly camp illegally and hope the forest guards dont show up. Gotta be careful about the wildlife though. Heard leopards around camp more often than I would like.

There's debate over this. It calls for "White Ash". Been lurking since '06, and I think this remedy showed up on /k/ around 2010. Originally it was White Ash tree, then around 2013 when all of the pastas started going around, it transitioned from White Ash tree to White Ashes from a fire.

A couple of years ago I was chilling in my room, probably playing vgs or something, when a friend texts me "I'm going to the forest, wanna come?" Because I live right on the edge of the forest and don't go often innawoods at night I say "why not." We meet at the bus stop and start walking into the forest chatting and putting on some shitty music to ward off the darkness. After some 20 min we reach the big grass patch owned by the scouts of our town and start looking for wood. We google "how to make a fire" because we are incompetent but manage to get it started. Buddy starts playing his guitar while I try to get some pics of the fire, the city lights and of him playing because why not, good memories. One of the pics looks like his soul was leaving his body and he still uses it today as propic from time to time. We start talking about movies and shit, hear some loud noises like screams but decide it's just foxes and keep talking. He starts telling me about skinwalkers stuff he read on /x/ and how much it freaked him out. It's almost midnight and we start hearing footsteps coming towards us, I don't think much of it but fren gets spooked saying it's the skinwalkers and we decide to leave. We basically just throw dirt on the fire and left. The next morning he text me that he is going back there to check if we burned down the forest or not. We meet there and find out that there are sheep a couple meters from where we made the fire.
Basically we got spooked by sheep.

There's an intresting story I saw on a youtube video about the Superstition Mountain range. A guide/hunter/whatever you want to call him said while exploring the entrance to a small cave, he saw a huge mound of red clay (described like the clay dirt you see in Georgia). When he sat on it to take a rest he said he got progressively tired and he felt that time moved extremely slow around him. Almost like being stuck in slow motion as when he tried to move (to keep himself from nodding off). He said he reckoned it took him a good couple of minutes just to hop off the dirt mound.

Anyone have any good Southwestern USA stories? The Native American folklore (i.e. skin walkers and such) scare me shitless.

True story.

My buddy Mac and his future wife were from SW Arizona and were prospecting/camping just across the border in California’s Imperial County. They had a legal claim in the Cargo Muchacho mountains and had camped there regularly when they worked the claim.

This time they were further SW from their claim in some part of the desert they weren't familiar with. The Tumco mine area. They were North of Interstate 8, West of Sidewinder road and East of Ogilby road. They were prospecting late in the afternoon and decided to pitch camp right where they were. Open desert, no posted claims or signs around. It was summer and hot out, they hadn't seen another soul in the area the entire weekend.

About 0300 they were awakened by the sound of footsteps approaching their tent. It was easy to hear the footfall crunching the dry gravel as the steps came closer, directly towards their tent.

Mac slowly cocked his single-action revolver and loudly stated that they “didn't want any trouble”.

The footsteps paused for a moment, seemingly changed direction and then proceeded all the way around their tent, then back off the same direction they had come.
>>
Mac and spouse didn't sleep the rest of the night. Just held each other with gun at the ready. (He said it was the most frightening thing that ever happened to him. It took him a while to get over it, but he eventually did).

Later, at first light, they cautiously exited their tent. They packed quickly to leave the area but Mac had to see the foot tracks. He knew by the sound it was a human biped, not an animal, hence the verbal warning earlier.

He described a hobnail type boot with tread and construction that was common for the time. It was enormous, bigger that this author's size 15 (us) EE and a stride that he couldn’t match (he was 5 foot 8 inches).

They hadn't seen anybody the entire weekend. They had camped in a small ravine that had no previous foot or vehicle track. Mac theorized they had passed the person earlier and he had followed them to their camp with dubious intent.
>>
Mac never camped in a tent for the rest of his life. He would use a fly on occasion and eventually modified his pick-up to be an open air camper where his sense of visibility/hearing/smell would be unimpeded.

Mac was the ultimate outdoorsman, taught me a lot about outdoors in general, mantracking, hunting, prospecting. He continued in the outdoors until the last part of his life.

I took Mac's advice. I'll use a bivy for bugs. I'll use a fly for wind or rain, but haven't used a tent since he told me his story.

Tent’s give the user a false sense of security and a very false sense of privacy. Cutting your own senses off doesn't mean the world can't see your tent and know exactly where to find you and even what direction is best to approach you so that you see them last.
I understand alpine conditions, wind, rain, snow, etc being a very different kettle-of-fish. In the desert ? I'll be on my tarp.

Northern Minnesota, camping on in-laws 40 acres next to legit ghost town, not rundown buildings, but old basements and sidewalks of a 1900's mining town. Driving in at night, always swore that there was always somebody stepping off of the dirt road into the trees just outside of the headlights range. Camping there was spooky af. We had a 12 person tent for 4 of us. On three separate occasions woke to see what I would call spirits in the tent looking at us as we slept. First time was a woman in a white dress holding her empty hands out to me when I woke up out of a dead sleep at the foot of my sleeping bag. Second time wife woke up to see a ww1 soldier kneeling at the foot of my sleeping bag, she said he was praying. Third time wife woke up and screamed, swore that there was a little girl that looked straight out of "The Shining" standing over her. Prior to this I never believed in the supernatural. All happened in the course of a summer. Lot's of other weird happenings, other family members seeing little girl skipping through the field on the edge of the property, about 5-6 people witnessed at the same time. Locals would stack stones in the middle of the road, would see them at a distance, walk towards them to ask wtf, they would jump in vehicle and take off without an explanation. Exploring the ghost town there was always a really depressed feeling hanging over the area. One time we were around the campfire (about 14 of us) and some homeless looking guy with a husky/wolf came walking up out of the darkness. Claimed he was a neighbor, nobody was buying it, but we played it cool and the sheriff was called. Turned out he lived on the other side of the highway (30min walk in the dark) and was known to be a thief. I was so glad the day I learned that they had sold it to someone else and we would never have to go back there.

>>1519676
This is actually my biggest fear. I carry a shotgun with me and the camp fire keeps the boars away, but when I sleep and the fire has gone out, not sure if I could get my shotgun, unzip the tent, get out, turn on flashlight to see where they are, and shoot (to scare them away) before they can jump me...

My friends don't like wild camping either, but the faggots are "totally in" for a day trip... Which means I can't get shitfaced and enjoy the comfy night.
>>
>>1529501
Scorpions aren't too bad. Been stung several times, usually while working, not paying attention.

Never had a snake in camp or really at night.

Tarantulas are pretty docile, you really have to fuck with them to get bit. People keep them as pets.

Velvet ants are down right painful a/f.

Been bit in the face by cone nose bug twice now, probably die from Chagas disease.

I'm allergic to bees, so any hymenoptera sting is sketchy. But reactions have dwindled over the years. Desensitized.

Don't be a fag.

Nah he’s 100% right. If someone has malicious intent, being in a tent is a pretty bad fucking place to be. And someone who has no malicious intent has no business silently circling someone else’s camp. If I had been in a potentially dangerous situation like that while totally blind, I’d probably be scared shitless to sleep in a tent, too. Double so if I needed to protect my significant other.

Literally an hour ago with my 0 iq went down a bike trail (completely surrounded by shub, some houses occasionly) covered by shrub after finishing a super late night shift. Iv seen soooo many big black bears on this path at day but for some reasons thought I could do it at night (it leads to my neighbourhood, shortcut kinda).

Half way in I pussied out at a crossroad and tried to find my way back to the main road. Ended up at this church. Right after taking this pic I sensed something looking at me in the dark bushes near the cross so I said hey bear and something took off (didn't seem to big but idk). Never road a bike up a hill so fast and after a detour eventually found the main road and got home (turned out to be faster too and all downhill with light, i'm retarded).


Pretty lame story ik but at least it's real unlike the other gay shit here.

Cute deer. I went with some bros and set up a tent in the forest when young, in the morning a bigass moose had went and died 10 feet from our tent. Would have fugging crushed us if it died on the tent.
>>
>>1539653
Why would it die like that? I wish I could die on will.
>>
>>1539669
It could have been mauled and managed to swim away before collapsing, or maybe it just had a heart attack from smelling humans. It was close to a very wide river and we didn't spend much time investigating the moose before leaving, and probably wouldn't be able to flip it over if we tried. We also didn't want to try in case it carried disease.

Nothing scary, just spooky.
Once while hammock camping in the back 60 acres of my grandpa's forested property, about a fifteen minute walk into a section of the woods that didn't border any other inhabited property all farming fields) I noticed a peculiar sight as I laid awake about 12oclock midnight, a distant orb of light, coming deeper from the woods, from a direction I know no one lives (like I said, fields n such).

It bobbed left to right and at first I thought it was someone with a flash light, until it began to raise too far off the ground for it to be a person (this was Florida; absolutely no hills to justify such an increase in height), and what's more the intensity would change from an orb off light so bright I couldn't mistake it, to a pinprick so dim that I could only actually perceive it if I looked off to the side of it, (yaknow how you're able to perceive light better from your peripherals).

It must have moved back and a forth a hundred feet or so, and what was also odd was that at no point could I perceive a beam of light extending from it like what one might see with a flashlight, it was as if it was a distant star, cept passing through the trees.
>>
>>1540219

In these same woods some years prior, I and some friends had spent a weekend our Junior year of High school, our first actual camping trip.

It went pretty well, roasted some marshmallow, cooked some chilli, sharpened some pine branches into spears for funzies etc.

Until later in the night, round 1'oclock or 2'oclock in the morning. At this point in the story what happened comes to me second hand from my friends as I was sound asleep when it occurred; they swear that around this time, they awoke to such a brightness filtering in through the tent's walls they mistook it for daytime, but we're so sleepy they went back to bed. When next they awoke it was the pitch black of darkness, round 2-3oclock in the morning.

Now like I said I wasn't awake, but I've been camping in those weeds before and had similar stuff happen since, but every time I open my tent to see what it is, I find out that it's just the moon shining bright on a cloudless night.

But because I wasn't awake I can't be sure; they claim it was as bright as if a headlight was shining down on them, but maybe it was just the bright moon.
>>
>>1518102
I have been here before. You hike up the back side of the cliff to a ridgeline summit that has two peaks. We are watching a cloud bank roll in towards us as we climb higher. We summit one of the peaks just as the cloud bank slams in to the back side of the mountain below us. The cloud gets pushed up and up until it clears the saddle between the peaks and streams 1000' straight down the face of the cliff. We are up above this, watching the abandoned mining town disappear in the thick fog that is filling the valley.
>> Not very scary at all, but pretty damn cool...
>>
>>1540235
... and we are never even touched by the dense cloud / fog from our perch on the summit less than 100' above.

>you could tell there were a few man made ponds that had dried up as there were some flimsy metal bridges spanning these craters in the ground
>very spooky vibe to the place, we decided to book it out of there when we saw what looked like a pack of wild dogs running along the limits of a collapsing wire fence. It was odd seeing these dogs, coyotes weren't uncommon but they looked too big idk
>years go by, go off to college, come back my freshman year for the summer for work, reminisce about the old bird sanctuary with my dad. He tells me that the guy who originally built it killed himself in it after his wife died and he was diagnosed with cancer. We didn't get past the sanctuary/massive bird cage but apparently behind that complex there was a massive house that also sat abandoned where the guy apparently killed himself
>zoom back to beginning of story, am off of this country road near the sanctuary and decide to go check it out again.

I live in Hawaii. Me and two other buddies drive up to the top of a mountain at night to camp out and watch the sunrise in the morning. We're pretty as high as you can go on the island, place is deserted. We hike a couple hours through a native forest to get to this huge ominous misty swamp. We're just hiking through the forest at night, talking about college and girls and what not, not much to look at in the dark. I'm super out of shape at the time and I'm just huffing and puffing in the high elevation (used to only sea level), but my friends stop dead in their tracks and swear they heard what sounded like a woman screaming. We get spooked and stop dead silent for a while, complete silence. Usually air is filled with insects and toads calling, felt pretty eerie. Never heard anything again. Trail is literally between two fences because the state has thousands of snares set up everywhere to curb the boar population to protect native plant species. Will never know if it was some hunting dog caught in a snare out there or actually a woman screaming or nothing at all, friends were dead serious on what they heard. Anyway we camp in the swamp and got a nice sunrise and got to check out some cool rare native birds in the morning but the feeling was definitely eerie that night.
>>
>>1544439
I'll add that the place is super spiritual to Hawaiians. Apparently a pretty somber place, when Europeans bought up all the land a lot of the natives got kicked off and had to relocate to the mountains up there. Ask any old Hawaiian, they'll talk about the "strong energy" up there. Never bought into supernatural stuff, pretty skeptical, but the stories of that sort people have stem a lot from the area. Stories usually revolve around pissed off Hawaiian spirits towards non-natives, which we are. Or the spirits recognizing natives as "descendents" but giving off an unwelcome "why-would-you-want-to-be-here" vibe. Sacred place but turned into a refuge away from their actual homes. Again, never bought into any of it but still set up the spooky feeling I had in the area.

This is surprisingly common. I paddle board a lot during the summer and there's this place locally known as Fag island. It's exactly what you think it is. Cruise in front of it and you'll see a bunch of shady men stalking around in the bushes looking for a mate. It's like a local containment zone. They all meetup there and you don't have to deal with their degeneracy elsewhere.

Forest preserves around urban areas are always like this. One of the nearby ones was known for Mexican hookers, and there was another one known for fags. We had some BMX trails off innawoods near the fag one and you park the car and see middle age man getting into random car with another middle age man and really hope it’s just a drug deal.

Oh and one time at that forest preserve, some random nutjob ran up on a pair or fags and smashed their brains in with a rock and killed them. Was on the news and everything.

Fagsmasher was a beast though. It was 2 on 1 and he murdered both guys with a fucking rock.

Don't stress out dog, it's not the worst thing and it wasn't malevolent. It's you and nature and nature will provide. In this case it provided you safety, either physically or mentally. You're still here and not dead in the mountains, I'd say you had a positive experience. I'm not religious nor do I always believe in paranormal things but I really doubt all the 'atheist intellectuals' know what the fuck they're talking about. No one knows for a certain if 'spirits' and whatever else exists or doesn't exist. We can't explain why we're here or how, so don't rule things out because of another person whose in the same boat. Don't let it weigh on you, just accept it as it was and is and move on from it.

I never really thought of that, he never even touched the fire the entire time. I was the one gathering logs and putting them in the entire night.

>>
>>1547398
>visit a psychologist
Ask yourself this: Is this the ONLY strange thing like that that's happened to you? If it is an isolated incident I don't think you're schizophrenic. You may be an atheist but as Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
>>
>>1547398
Don't visit a psychologist unless you absolutely feel you need to. Or at least find one who isn't an idiot (as most are). Some things happen and don't make sense, other people who haven't experienced it can't relate or will pretend to. Don't confide in others too much about it, you need to internalize it a bit too.

Not only is this insanely rare, but if a bat is in the aggressive stage of rabies it will wander aimlessly regardless of time of day. You're not more likely to get bit by a manic bat in the middle of the night than you are to have one attack you on a trail in the middle of the day.

While I've never really been "innawoods"(I don't live within walking distance of any woods and no car) but once when I went about 100 yards out in-between two large lakes I found a deer skull, I was tryin to take its tooth out to put it on a neckless, and a dude yells "Hey!", I was scared so I look around a bit, didn't see him. So I ran across a fence (opening was a couple of yards behind me) once I was out in the open I say "Oh, uh hey!" but I didn't get any response. Not that scary but still did kind of freak me out for a minute. If I'm going to be completely honest, it was likely in my head. I've heard voices THAT I KNOW in my head say hello to me, but this time it felt pretty real and it wasn't someone that I knew. Again, not that scary but I did avoid that part of the woods for the rest of the day.

>>1547355
Well, I can imagine that having an imaginary friend is pretty normal, talking to yourself for hours on end is not really that normal at all. I would probably talk to a counselor about that, but I guess that I'll try it myself and if it sticks than whatever. But the important thing is that it doesn't impede on your day-to-day lifestyle.

There's a lot of strange shit in these hills. A lot of locals don't go camping up there alone, including myself. There's something wrong about the mountains here once the sun goes down. Things are watching you, screaming at you to get out but daring you to stay. I've lived in these hills all my life but they still rub me the wrong way.

Odd thought here but could it have been the spirit of your FAL? A lot of cultures have stories or legends about objects that are loved by their owners or just so old that they gain sentience and a conscious understanding of the world around them, the Japanese call the Tsumogi's.
How old is your FAL and who owned it before you? Whats its history? You never know, and it does make sense if you think about it, the FAL kept whatever it was at bay.

I went on a solo backcountry trip to fly fish a brook trout stream in May. It was like a six mile hike from the trail head to the "wilderness" area.

This was the middle of the week, and I didn't see anyone on my hike in on day one. I was definitely totally alone out there; I didn't see a single soul the entire time I was out there.

I made a camp at a dry spot little clearing not too far from the brookie stream with a tiny tributary to get water from near by. I set up my tent, gathered a bit of wood, hung my food bag, had a snack, and then set out to go explore and find a route up to the headwater where the local fly shop told my I would have the best chance of finding a concentration of pools to fish.

It took me about an hour to hike up to the head waters. I fished for an hour, caught a few brookies, and then headed back.

Next to my camp was a muddy little trail that lead to the feeder creek I had been using for water. It was a hot day, so I crushed the three liters I hiked in with. I walked down to fill my water bottles before heading out to fish. When I returned from fishing, I had an empty bottle or two, and it was getting dark. I was planning on drinking and having a fire that evening, so I wanted to get my bottles filled to have water to guzzle whilst drinking whiskey.

On my way down the muddy path to the feeder creek, I noticed something peculiar. There were massive dog prints in the mud. They looked fresh too. They were 100% dog prints because the toe pads were all round and they were way too massive to be a coyote or a fox.

At first I thought "Whatever, someone must have walked through with their dog," but then I realized I was fair off of the main trail. It would have been unlikely that someone would have been able to spot my camp while walking their dog and even more unlikely they would have been out there that far from the trailhead that close to dark.

I also knew no one was camping because no one else was registered on the backcountry log for that day.

What really struck me though, was that these massive dog footprints were completely unaccompanied by human footprints. It was so muddy that human prints would have been left clearly; mine were.

It wasn't a good feeling to know that I was out here, alone, with a strange stray dog. What made me start feeling spooked is that this area I was in has a legendary dog-man creature attributed to it. Now, I don't believe in the paranormal, but I had that thought in the back of my head. To top it all off, my headlamp decided to shit the bed that night; all of my LEDs burnt out simultaneously.

I had a very uneasy feeling all evening, and definitely heard something large moving around my camp just after dark fell.

I saw no other signs over the course of the next few days, but it was certainly odd.

once found a statue or something covered in a white cloth sheet in the middle of nowhere. I guess we didn't see it move or anything but we were quite scared since we didn't see it on the run in, and the setting had a lot of tension.

>we were escorting Japanese tourists on a canoe/ hiking trip, after they went to sleep on the first night the staff all hung out for a bit
>even though we were in the middle of nowhere, a truck playing music, covered in hot chicks singing drove by slowly at like midnight-ish.
>we followed it since we were in the middle of nowhere and we couldn't imagine where the truck was going, we ended up going the wrong way and following a road leading us up to the top of a steep little mountain
>the road led into the driveway of an abandoned cabin with a well maintained garden, we looked around but couldnt find any evidence of the gardener or anything of interest, although we could see/hear the light and music of the truck slowely traversing the mountain roads below us
>we got bored, returned the road, and found the thing covered in the sheet
>it looked just like a person, and we didn't see it on the way in, so we tried autistically talking to it and walking around it for 10 minutes before booking ass back to the campsite

Nothing horror worthy, just more paranormal.
I was about 8 or 9, going through the woods in daylight with my grandparents and some other people I guess.
As I was behind everyone I went near the end of the forest where a field was.
When I got there there were two human like figures in front of me with their backs turned on me, heads not visible, so presumably looking at the ground, with their hands bent behind their backs. Their attire was dark, SWAT-like. They were sideways jumping in sync from left to right until they make a big sideways to the left, disappearing in the tall, dry autumn grass.

Used to have a recurring dream in childhood of being stood at the edge of a field of corn, where it bordered some woodland. As I looked out over the field I'd see a dark figure, slightly hunched over in the middle of it with it's back to me. It would begin to turn around and I'd feel a strong sense of dread before waking up.

Many years later I was out walking in an area of mixed country and farmland near where I lived at the time. Just wandering around and smoking a couple of joints. I turned a corner round a hedgerow and found myself with woodland to my right, looking out over a field of corn.

An uneasy feeling came over me and I felt like I wasn't alone, but there was nobody in sight. I turned back around (I basically never do this) and walked briskly back the way I came, straight home. It was only later that I remembered that dream I used to have (my mother and father remember me describing this dream to them when I'd wake up in the middle of the night).

I was pretty spooked for a while and didn't go out alone again for like a month. When I did I went back to the same spot. The field looked different somehow though, and there were some vegetables growing there this time, not corn.

Anyone ever encounter the shadow children? Some time ago i took a road trip across the southwest and had stop between Zion and Grand Staircase. I was making good time. I was near two rock formations that sandwiched the road with my back to some large bushes as cover. I decided to just sleep in the drivers side so i can watch the road and be quick to gtfo. But throughout the night i kept getting woken by flashes from headlights and on the rock formations i can make out shadows of kids running across the road. The worrying thing was that while i could hear the cars and see the headlights shining, i couldn't feel the vibrations from them. I normally can but these that illuminated the kids running across the road felt weightless. I only ever saw them at the cusps of falling into sleep.

While you may be right, and the original OP was larping, I wouldn't be amazed something like this would happen. While it wasn't a consensual and organized thing, human hunting happened in the 1930's during the Spanish Civil War, the upper classes would go and hunt peasants for pure sport or to repress them.
>the joke name Reforma agraria (agrarian reform) identified the horseback hunting parties by which they killed insubordinate peasantry and so cleansed their lands of communists; moreover, the joke name alluded to the grave where the corpses of the hunted peasants were dumped: the piece of land for which the dispossessed peasants had revolted.

Aw yeah, a lotta times in most trails I've gone through in Myakka, The boars demolish shit. Almost everytime I've done a hike there a couple of small ones come up and run a couple circles around my group, small enough so they're underneath the Sable? Palms and we can't see anything but the rustling.

That would imply they believe in a God. Most of 4chins is more comfortable believing in demons than Jesus.

Me again, forgot to add one of my friends dad's used to be forest service way back in the day (actually helped build some famous overlook/park type thing deep in the woods of Western PA) was told this story. He said his crew had some weird superstition about never yelling back at each other while working unless someone was called by name or identified themselves

Trying to be subjective, but if any of this stuff is real, how much of it do you think is caused by Natives trying to curse the land before the white man took over it? When you listen to the Natives talk about this stuff, they speak of it as something tangible, not some myth. Those Navajo Ranger dudes fucked with my mind when they said they will investigate Bigfoot sightings the same way they investigate a robbery.

Also this one sounds like a BS story, the pic in the end and the rocks petting the doggo. We all know that first time we saw an arm coming out of a damn rock, it would be looking down the barrel of the shotgun.

I don't think PA has the Navajo tribe active, though I'm curious about native myths about the area now

Nah but they had other tribes. And the natives are all the same, they don’t draw a clear line between the natural and supernatural like the white man.

I've chalked the voices down to ravens, and the tree knocks down to either moose or deer scraping antlers against trees but it was still TRÈS spooky at the time
