HAHAHA!! great story!
I will say the flush of a covey of quail or pheasant in the middle of the night while walking into a deer stand has made me give pause to use some toilet paper.

It's been several years ago but I was sitting at the corner of a wooded lot. I saw a few birds out in the pasture and was calling to them. I called several times with not response from the birds. For some reason I glanced to my left to see a bob cat stalking me. Thankfully he took off when I moved..

I’m with Dennis in that a flush of quail in the dark will get the heart rate up in a hurry.

I have a property where (im guessing snipe) I will step on about 6-8 nests on a 600 yard stalk. Everytime I get the explosion from underfoot. The first 20 times or so I'd have to stop a moment and gather myself back up...now its common enough that it hardly phases me.

The worst anything has unsettled me is when I was putting a stalk on some hogs at 11pm and went under a tree late August. Wrapped myself up in a huge orb weaver web. The worst part was that I could see the spider dangling from the lid on my cap in the moonlight.

I didn't spook the hogs by whimpering...but they did alert to the sound of my shirt sleeves hitting my rifle as I was in full kung-fu mode. I still got my kills. I looked like a haunted house decoration.

Yes. Yes. Yes. My fright pose after they flush is usually with one leg still in the air while I spin on the other and arms clinched around my chest

I too, have done some fantastic, yet completely useless Kung Foo moves on spider webs in the woods. I have not trained in the was of the Master Foo'er, so it must be a natural thing that resides in me. I have had several coyotes and a few bob cats put the stalk on me when calling. Kind of makes ya want a tree stand for turkey hunting at times.

Just wait till a field mouse crawls up inside your pant legs. I know someone who had that happened to them once and talk about literally jumping out your pants. I never laughed so hard in my life since then.

It wasn't the turkey woods. I was spring squirrel hunting , sitting at the trunk of a pecan tree. I have one of those squirrel calls that you hit the bottom of to make it call. I was hitting the call on my leg,after about 10 min. I looked to my left and an owl was flying toward my leg. I waived my arm when it was about 20 feet away. Now I watch my movement when using this call.

Years ago, I was squirrel hunting on a place my uncle owns, and I was camo’ed up really well. I had a squirrel limb out over me, and when I shot at it (and missed), it jumped off the limb at me. It happened so fast that all I could do is put my arm up. The squirrel hit my arm and latched on. I was screaming like a school girl and beating my arm and squirrel against my leg to try to get it off. Finally, it let go and scampered off, and I was barely able to make my way back to my truck on shaking legs. My underwear were still clean, but I really don’t know how.

I've had that happen while sitting all camo'ed up in a ground blind deer hunting. I watched an owl for an hour or so and it kept a looking right at me. The just before sunset, it swooped down coming straight for my face. I calmly became a raging lunatic and it retracted landing gear and did a go-around. I guess it was looking at the whites of my eyes and wanted to taste them.

I shot a squirrel with a pellet gun when I was a little kid and was trying to find out where he went I went around the other side of the tree and seen his tail sticking out of a crack in the tree and blood dripping I thought he died there so I grabbed his tail and pulled him out and he was very much alive he ran up my arm over my head and jumped off then disappeared I was terrified and went back home lol
