Haha funny thread but so much truth in it. People get used to living in a city so much that they even don`t realise the nature itself anymore. I bet they`re not even thinking or seeing anything about nature when they walk through forest.

As for dogs. They certainly can feel your presence and smell your scent but most of the city dogs won`t bother with you because they are used to people and don`t acknowledge you as danger. On larger distances it also depends on the wind. Further if you have a feeling being watched in the woods, that`s because you probably are watched by wild animals. The question is can you see them? When your awareness is heightened you will see most of them and by that I mean bit larger animals such as squirrels, deer, birds, hedgehogs, foxes...etc...They all get highly alerted by human presence and will either freeze and observe or rapidly move to the safe distance and observe which in latter case you will probably hear them. The point are being observed all the time in the woods, just not by other people...well most of the time
Whether or not by otherworldly entities also, I cannot say

Finally, if any of you have the urge to increase your all around senses and awareness I would recommend you going into the woods alone in the cover of darkness.(Spring time is ideal for this experiment) But not like far away from home or closest settlement so you don`t lose yourself...flashlight or fire doesn`t count...And I can guarantee you instant success and the discovery of senses you never knew existed in you

You know, I don't even pay attention to all you people with your frantic, conspiracy-filled paranoiac lives any more, or your need to hide or the need for stealth. It could be said you were prowlers. It has just become a lifestyle these days. I have lived in a time when there were freedoms and people of the caliber that could be trusted in about every way. (except loaning them your exotic car I lived Pre-1984 Orwell. Born in 1951.

I do believe a lot of people have no idea of normal behavior, never having experienced it, or knowing anyone with basic moral behavior. The instructor, Television, has been inundated with every perversion that can get past the censors. And in doing so, the public has accepted these behaviors as main stream. It's nothing to see pervs of every sort, morally bankrupt as role models, and deviates as just normal Joes. In other words, the Whole world has become a convoluted mess, offering up every debauchery as wholesome behavior.

I am glad to be the age I am, thus I will miss the Age of societies Decay in earnest.
As the rise of technology has been stellar and in the blink of an eye, so goes the fall of behavior, morality and civilization. A decade to rise....... less to fall. I only pity the children born that will have to live through this collapse.

On US national forests they already have hidden cameras so they can watch the faces you make while you poop in the woods. Your tax dollars hard at work.

Are you calling me a pervert ?

Why ?

Because I don't litter, because I protect my hard to find fishing spot from those who would destroy it.

Screw you.

the game wardens that do there job are usually looking through binos several hrs a day leaving an impression around the eye.
I was told of one of the bosses that always checked this on his staff to see if they were working but would never let them know what he was looking for and then he would just follow the ones without indications and catch them slippin up.

Seems like the right thread for this story:

One day while tramping quietly through the woods (and off the trail) I spotted a girl sitting on a log. She seemed rather upset and she kept taking frequent sips of beer. If I moved she would probably hear me so I figured if I waited a couple minutes she would move on like everyone seems to do. She sat there and hammered down 3 beers before pulling out something from a box.
Then she squatted and after relieving herself sat back down. A big smile came across her face as she hollered "YESSSSS!" loud enough to scare several nearby squirrels who scampered up the nearest tree. After she left I went to see what she was up to. As you may have already guessed there was a used pregnancy test kit in a paper bag. Being a young girl you know what the results were by her reaction.
There's more human drama going on in the woods than we may think.

And she has no idea that you, a complete stranger, shared in that moment with her.

I love how we're all connected with so many other people without even realizing it most of the time.

I can relate with your story. I have been backpacking many times in the woods where groups of other people rarely would walk by, but when they did they did not even notice me, nor even others I was with.

My buddies and I while hiking out of The Yosemite Backcountry during the early 90's as teenagers walked by 2 girls who were sun bathing naked on some Granite slab. All we seen was two sets of white buns and their pony tails sticking up. It was a nice view though after being in the mountains with just the boys all week.

We were Just a 100 feet away from them, yet they never even noticed us. We just continued on the trail but with our own adolescent, forbidden and animalistic thoughts. ~$heopleNation

That man is me.

Wait..don't email this thread to FBI or something hear me out, I am about to teach you city folks a lesson.

I like fishing and the kind of fishing I like is where no one will bother me. NO ONE.
When I come to a spot other people visit, I find cans of beer, garbage, cigarettes, plastic bags, honest to God I would jail those of you who throw garbage in pristine environment. It shows complete intellectual immaturity to throw garbage in such a place.

Long story short I go through great lengths to find strictly my own spot, I go way out of bounds, hiking for hours. So when I am about to go "off road" I make sure no one can see me entering the brush, and likewise that no one can see me returning to the trail. Since I go through great length to be away from other Anglers, I don't want to give people ideas where they too can go.

When I am returning to trails, this is the funniest and creepiest thing, I see half the time people walking on trails, often with their dogs. All I do is remain motionless by a tree, not even moving my head, only my eyes.

People are OBLIVIOUS

Dogs ???

You'd think a single dog would "feel me", spot me, smell me..nope, not a single one, even those who run through the brush all the time. I guess these city dogs are not really dogs but toys/pets.

Here is the lesson that I realized myself.

You are always being watched, bears, cougars, crazy woods people, guys who protect their fishing spot, wolves, bigfoot, hunters, trappers.

For all I know, when I am watching people on trails, something or someone is watching me watching them.

Creepy, but I believe it.

You didn't happen to be outside of my window last night? No? Good... On another note I can't blame you. Humans can be pigs... Strange though my dog is ocd, if she as much as hears a squirrel from the second floor on the 3 acres we live on. No joke she can hear me or my wife coming from about a 1/4 mile away. Strangely she doesn't get too upset when humans show up to knock on the door any more. When we lived in a city she was a maniac but I think the woods and people who behave in a normal manner have mellowed her out.

At the very least a Voyeur. It doesn't strike you that your behavior is a lot out of the ordinary ? Spying in secret a bit, ok a lot, perverse. ? Well if you see no problem with this, perhaps while spying on people, were they to catch you what do you think they might think of you...? After all, why do people go into the wilderness? Primarily to escape the Waco world in which they must live. You can't tag this eclectic or excentric. It is neither. I'm interested how you will respond now..... with more insults? You have your audience....... right here on ATS, hundreds of thousands, and more. a reply to: TryAndStopTheFuture555

For the record, when I visit the woods I will carry other people's trash out with me. What ever I can carry or stuff into my purse. Sometimes I bring a small grocery bag and put what I can in it. I used to smoke, (3 years free as of new years day yay me) I would put it out, shake out any remaining tobacco and put the butt in my pocket to dispose of latter.
I'm a naturalist and keep my eyes open for birds, plants or trees I can study. In the city as a woman I always watch what's going on around me and know who's around but I'd bet I've missed a few of these lurkers in the darkness. Creepy.

ATS T and C rules prohibit me from telling you what I really think of you.

I think you are sad and alone,

I think you don't ever get out to go fishing, maybe you can't even afford it

You are making it seem that I am not using trails but always hiding by the trails, when I clearly pointed out that I ENTER and EXIT trails unseen.

Instead of thanking me for pointing out that even in woods there are people watching for whatever reason.

You showed up to call me a pervert.

Again, t&C rules prohibit me from telling you in your face things you really should hear.

Being a bigfoot researcher myself, I had long ago concluded that the main thing the human eye is attracted to is motion. If you've got a person who is wearing browns, greens, blacks, greys, forest or earthy colors, and they remain still, it is unlikely they will be seen. Of course the distance and angles of view make a difference, but it happens all the time that a person can miss something that is only 10 feet away. I only know this to be true in a wooded environment, but perhaps other environments would produce the same results. If you were wearing a bright pink shirt then the eye would most likely pick up on it, even if you remained motionless. As far as being able to "sense" other people or animals, I've found that the feeling where your hair stands on end, especially on the back of the neck, is fear-related. It is a primal instinct. Most people will probably not ever have such a feeling. I think that sensing other people is something that few experience as well, unless their body/mind perceives the possibility of danger. Try it. Walk up behind someone that you live with, and I bet they will not perceive you, as long as they do not hear you. But if it were a stranger and the possibility of danger was present, someone will be more likely to sense another person. That is what I've learned from experience anyway.

The only times that my hair has stood on end were when I had "strange" experiences. I have had three paranormal experiences, two of which caused my hair to stand up; and I've had a bigfoot sighting from roughly 40 yards away, which caused my hair to stand on end. I've never experienced that feeling any other times. These events were unmistakably abnormal, with no possibility of a natural explanation. Although the bigfoot sighting was natural, in that it was a living, breathing animal as opposed to something paranormal or alien. I've never really had any UFO experiences, so I don't know if that same feeling would be present.
