odd happenings in the stand
 
A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO I WAS IN MY STAND AND A SMALL FALCOLN THING TRIED TO ATTACK ME. I SAW HIM LAND ON A LIMB ABOUT 10 FEET FROM ME AND HE SAT THERE WATCHING ME. I NEVER MOVED ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR MY EYES, EVIDENTLY HE THOUGHT THEY WERE FOOD AND TRIED TO CATCH THEM. I ALMOST JUMPED OUT OF THE TREE! HIS TALONS WERE WITHIN INCHES OF MY EYES. ALSO, I HAD A 4 FOOT BLACK SNAKE CRAWL OUT OF A KNOT HOLE THAT I HAD MY STAND HUNG OVER, HE ALMOST GOT IN MY LAP BEFORE I NOTICED HIM..........I MOVED MY STAND!

About two weeks ago, I was at full draw on a good bow buck. He was about 45 yards out and on his way into my range. I like them within 30 yards. I drew on him at about the only chance I was gonna get without him seeing me, and I was just waiting him out at full draw. He stopped for a moment, as time stood still. Out of nowhere, a muzzleloader fired and that buck hit the ground right in front of me. Off to the south I see an orange-clad guy who was feeling the emotion that I was just a moment away from experiencing! I nearly cried. Anyway, he saw me a minute or two later.

We'll haven't had anything just scare me out of the stand yet, but the last time I was out I had a bird land on my arrow. I had just finished installing a new bow holder. It was one of those that attaches right to the side of the stand. Once I got it secured, I put my bow in it. I had an arrow noc'd and was awaiting any sign of deer when this little bird just landed on my noc'd arrow. Once it realized that I wasn't part of the tree it took off. The only other experiences I've had are the stupid squirels that come up and just look at me. They'll get within a few feet and just stare at me. I've wondered if it's better to try to scare the squirels off or just leave them alone. The do make a lot of noise and I figured that if a deer did come in, the squirels would spook them off. On the other hand, I've read a couple of posts on here that said the deer are used to the way the squirels sound and it doesn't bother them.

Bees. Climbed a tree with the climbing stand and when it warmed up a little, the bees, from a small hole in the tree, started swarming, underneath me. I finally had to abandon ship. I jumped out at 12 feet and it wasn't pretty.

I did the honey bee thing too. They were eating me alive once the sun came out. I got out of there in a hurry.
I also had a raccoon in my stand one morning and he wasn't the sharing type. I had to throw sticks and rocks at him to get him evicted.

I was about 20 foot up in my climber on a windy day. A tree up the ridge from me started to give way and was falling right for me. It caught a large limb at the last second and landed ten foot to the left of my stand. Scard the piss out of me, but I didnt have anywhere to go, lol.
