What did we experience. Tried to rationalize it to a black bear, but this doesn't really add up. Black bears are usually pretty skittish. Our loud entrance should have scared any bear away. Beyond that, the first "Hello" should have scared any black bear away

Then the breathing. Never heard a black bear breathe like that.

There is a possibility it was a human messing with us, and was hiding behind a tree when we jumped out looking for him. This doesn't really seem plausible though, as they would have known we were hunting and had guns. Seems pretty stupid on their part to ambush a group of hunters in the dark without even calling yourself out

Only saw 1 deer that entire day. Had seen 20+ 2 days before while scouting the spot.

Checks a few bigfoot and skinwalker boxes, but really not sure. Left that day with no deer. Never went back to the spot
Maybe it climbed a tree when you scared it and you just didn't bother to look up.
If there was something there you would've heard it running away unless it started climbing a tree.
Also a good point. We did shine the flashlights up around the trees briefly but saw nothing
>call himself a hunter
>shits himself at the sound of animals
Stay in the city champ
