Not really an award winning thread, just wanted to share an interesting experience I had a couple days ago.
So I'm sitting in the woods with my little sister and younger cousin, and we're shooting bottles with my bb gun.
My cousin runs home to use the bathroom. My sister and I are talking, when all the sudden, I hear some really odd noise.
My sister stops talking, just staring at me, indicating that she had heard the noise as well.
It was breathing.
Heavy, husky breathing, coming from somewhere in the distance behind us. We both stand on the rock we were sitting on, turning around. She stands
behind me. I'm holding my gun up in the defense, though I know that if it's a big animal, a bb gun won't do much.

For some reason, the paranoid side of me thought; what if it goes after her?
Because she was crunching leaves and twigs as she left the
So, I drowned out the noise of her walking by making amazing howling dog noises. I am awesome like that.
Anyway, I slowly back out of the woods, my gun raised towards the direction of the hefty breathing.
As I step out of the woods, I cocked and fired my gun into the trees at least five times in a row.
I turned to my sister and said; "Well, y'know what that means. Let's get the hell outta here."
We speed-walked back home.
She told me she was barely able to see the animal from outside of the woods. It was big and black.
The breathing made me think of a boar, but here's the thing; we were right in between a school's property and a residential area. What would a boar be
I thought of a bear. I live in Tennessee, after all. But... a bear in a residential area? That's weird in the city, even for us rednecks.
I thought it was rather interesting.
Sorry if I put this in the wrong place, mods. Feel free to edit.
