Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
I lived with my freind from school in his mom and dads cabin one Summer. It was in a heavily wooded valley that was said to have some strange animals living there becuase it was so hard to access due to steep angles of the hills around it. I hunted it a lot throughout the years and had been aproached by several deer that were curious and one time while squirrel hunting I heard a swooshing sound. I was about half way down the side of one of the hills and the sound was coming from up higher on the ridge. It sounded as if it was getting louder when I realized that a great horned owl was coming at me and was going to pass almost over my head at about 2 feet above me. He never flapped his wings as he had momentum from gliding down hill and he rotated his head back and forth as hr went past me as if to be searching for food. It was AMAZING to see
him that close. he probably had a 6 foot wing span.

I also had a large bobcat walk up on me once which I saw coming through the woods, thinking it was a large house cat untill he showed himself from behind a tree about 20 yards from me and looked straight at me at which point I pulled my arrow back on the bow and took aim at his chest my heart pounding the whole time. He looked away as if not seeing me and slowly walked off.

One night when I was at the cabin alone with our 2 new puppies that we had for about a month I took them out the backdoor to let them piss before we went to bed. The cabin had a deck that extended out toward the front of the cabin and the ground dropped away toward the front maybe 20 feet or so. We had a spring coming out at the top of the hill and the spring flowed past the deck and down some rocks untill it emptied into a bathtub that my freind had put there to catch water so he could take a bath in it, albeit a damned cold bath but that is what he did. Well the pups didnt walk off the deck out into the back grassy area they went right to the corner that overhung the spring and stopped. As I watched them suddenly the hair on both their backs stood straight up and not thinking I tried to call them back and they were just frozen so I went to the corner to see what they were looking at and as I got to the edge of the deck I heard this very low gurgling growling sound that scared the hell out of me. I slowly backed away and the 2 pups followed me and I backed all the way into the cabin and went and closed every window, latched them and locked every door which we NEVER did. My buddy came home late and had to pound on the door to get me to let him in and could not understand why they were locked untill I told him what had happened. I have seen and heard a lot of things in the woods being an avid fisherman and hunter but NEVER have heard anything like that "thing" that was trying to get a drink that night.

I tried looking for tracks and evidence of whatever it was but never found a thing. My freinds mother had told me after hearing what happened that she had seen what she thought was bigfoot tracks around the cabin one Winter.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
I was in my early 20's tent camping with my boyfriend at Placid Lake in Montana. In the early dawn, I was awakened by the dog growling with the fur on his neck standing straight up. It wasn't quite light, but I heard someone/something trying to unzip the tent opening. I was terrified and layed there frozen with fear. I tried pushing at my boyfriend trying to wake him up. He wouldnt move or make a sound. The dog continued his deep growl, and I was bracing myself to take on whatever was trying to get into the tent.

Suddenly it stopped, and I heard no footsteps or anything moving off. Just complete silence. I stayed perfectly still thinking that whatever it was was just still right outside. I must have layed there for 30-45 minutes, but it felt like forever. It was now getting lighter and the dog settled back to sleep. I continually tried to wake up my boyfriend, but he would NOT wake up.

I do not know what it was that night, but I remember stories my grandpa used to tell about the area that would keep me awake at night.

It still freaks me out to think about it. Hands down the scariest experience I've had. Almost like something REALLY bad could have happened that morning. I will never tent camp again.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
My first exposure to porn was finding playboys in the woods when I was around 11 or 12. They were laying near some couches someone dumped there. We just thought it was funny at the time. I don't recall seeing any unusual creatures, which I guess is surprising since I used to go fishing a lot near wooded areas and play in fields. One time when I was out catching bugs in one of my favorite areas I came across this board of plywood. On it was a message written "Stay away, nature boy - signed The Angel of Death". Next to this was a picture of a black figure with wings. At the time I was pretty young, maybe under age 10 so this freaked me out. Right next to this area there was a building with a small radio tower. About halfway up this tower there was a Chucky doll hanging by a noose around it's neck. Chucky was one of those characters that really scared me as a young kid. I didn't go near that area anymore unless I had some friends with me...

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
My brother and some of his friends were creeping around in the woods one late summer playing "war games" ....

When all of a sudden they heard some strange chanting noises in the distance. My brother and his friends got very quiet and decided to investigate what was going on.

They crawled up to the place close to the chanting sound and peered into the clearing.

They were hidden around many low lying bushes. My brother said he will never forget what he witnessed.

There were about 10 people standing in a circle wearing long hooded red and black robes.

There was some kind of "alter" they were standing around and chanting. My brother said it was very difficult to tell what was on top of the alter, it was small in shape and they were definitely going to stab it with a big knife.
He said one of the hooded people had a knife in his hand and raised it up above the object on the alter.

My brother and his friends became more terrified and quickly left the area as quietly as they could....

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
once i was camping in western new mexico with some buddies.
this is a mountainous area and it had snowed the previous
night. that morning, one of my buds had decided to make
buscuits in a portable oven i had packed. we were traveling
out of a jeep if i recall right.

i was peeing the morning pee, near a appx. 14' wide creek that was pretty active with snow
melt, when a full grown wild boar hog pranced up to the
opposite side of the creek. he was about waist high in height
and was staring in the direction of my buddy and his biscuits.
i could smell them too, as i was caught in mid pee, i
remember how i did'nt like biscuits.

i did'nt like this hog either because he had very big tusks.
he then proceeded to hurl himself into the creek, but the creek
was too deep for him to get footing. all i remember is his
snout, sticking out of the water, and going around in a few
circles as he was washed about 20 yards down stream.
luckily, he got his footing and exited on the opposite side
of the creek from us. he just shook the water off and ran
back into the woods and we never saw him again.

i don't know if he wanted a biscuit, or just wanted to
murder all three of us that day. i've always thought
that that was a close call from a very brutal hog attack though.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Went hiking into the woods one night because I had a dream the night before with some whispering voices telling me I needed to explore these woods. I had never really taken dreams seriously, much less followed instructions received in one, but there was some overwhelming force pulling me to those woods.

So the next day I began hiking into the woods, at around 12:30 at night. About 30-40 minutes into my hike, I started hearing distant machinery. It was unlike anything I've ever heard. It wasn't logging equipment, like chainsaws and hydraulic splitters, it wasn't your typical 3-phase electrical motors powering mills and lathes like you'd hear in a factory, the best way I can describe it is it sounded like a living, breathing, moaning and groaning giant machine that was ripping apart some type of animals that were screaming sounds that I still can't drink out of my mind to this day. I kept traveling towards the sound, but seeing absolutely zero light anywhere in the distance, nor behind me at this point.

I continued for another 10 minutes, moving cautiously to the terrifying noises, questioning my logic a couple times and turning to head back home, but then changing my mind and deciding to continue on to satisfy my curiosity which had never been stimulated to this degree. Then it happened. Silence. What must have been 120db of maddening horror went from a a screeching roar to complete silence. I've never been more scared in my life, I thought for sure I had lost my mind, and it was just absolutely terrifying. I heard footsteps and whispers, many many whispers. The footsteps were getting closer, breaking all kinds of branches and twigs on the ground. And it was growing vast, it wasn't a singular point of sound, it was literally surrounding me 360 degrees.

I'm not ashamed to admit that at this point I was laying on the ground in the fetal position, saying prayers and trying to block out this madness and wake up from this nightmare. But it wasn't a nightmare and the whispering was now discernable for the first time. They were saying "light" over and over. Just then, I remembered that I had packed a lantern in my backpack so I quickly dug it out, and felt my camera in there too. I was thinking that in case my lantern didn't work, I could use the flash on my camera as a light. I discovered I had forgotten any matches, so the lantern was a no-go. What happened next cannot be described, I feel as though it would break and damn my soul if I tried. So I will just post the picture that I snapped there in the woods that instant, and let you decide what it is you're looking at.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
The strangest thing I've ever seen in the woods, I saw not too far from where I'm sitting right now in East Texas on our land... a Hyena.

No kidding.

I know this land... we've got 400 acres here, & I've seen coyotes, bobcats, deer, even a very out-of-place (these days) Red Wolf once... all kinds of things over the years, but obviously, this was a first.

I was a kid, and had hunted & played here since I could walk... we knew & know it very well, as it's been in my Family for 80+ years.

So, nothing surprised us... it's our place, after all.

And then one day, while hunting with my Dad & little brother, there about 75 yds in front of us, in about 1" tall grass and facing us, was a friggin' Hyena.

Classic build... long front legs, shorter back legs, a 'mane', big round ears... head at first lowered & then up on a long thick neck as it noticed us and turned to run in the opposite direction and disappeared.

No-one took a shot at it, and we never saw it again.

Where it came from is still unknown... we later found out that miles away, a man that kept various exotic animals had been ordered by the State to have them relocated to a proper place... a zoo, sanctuary... whatever.

Keeping exotics is not unheard-of in this area... my next-door-neighbor (1/2 mile down the road) currently has 2 black bear, wallabies... and various other non-natives.

But instead relocating them, the aforementioned man in a fit of *screw you guys!* released them all... I do know that for years there were tons of sightings of a chicken-killing black panther.

But to my knowledge, we're the only ones that ever saw a Hyena in the East Texas woods.

About 10 years ago, went with a couple of friends to pick up magic mushrooms. That was in Green Forest, south of England. After two hours inside the forest I got lost, and was really hard to know your way, just trees and more trees, you could barely see the sky. Suddenly out of nowhere, a bunch of kids about 10-12 yo appeared and just stared at, I stared back and kept walking.... they scared the shit out of me... very weird.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Not really weird, but kinda funny.

I was in a treestand during archery season one year. I was a little bored so I was watching a squirrel busily going up and down in the trees gathering his nuts. He was sitting on a branch for awhile as the sun was shining directly on him. I think he dozed off and all of a sudden he fell to the ground, about twenty feet or so.

And this is the truth. He hit the ground and lay stunned for a sec. The he raised up and looked around as if to say, I hope nobody saw that. Then he ran up a tree and disappeared.

He actually looked sheepish, if it is possible for a squirrel to emote.


Another time in the stand...

I was sitting there and felt a movement of air. As I turned my head to look, a large owl swooped directly at my head veering off at the last possible second. Nearly fell out of the stand. Scared the crap out of me.

I have long brown hair and it was in a ponytail. The owl mistook my head for a squirrel and almost got me. Had a 4 ft. wingspan.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Ok a silly story about the woods. I took my family camps many years ago. We were pretty young, and our kids were 5,7,and 9. The campground was pretty deserted since it was a primitive place, but two young couples pulled in late as we were putting the kids down to bed. Seconds later they cranked up, I mean really loud Doors music. It was deafening.

I didn't mind so much. My wife and I shrugged and drank by the fire, snuggling. We waited until the fire burned down, but they partied on for hours.

Finally around 2am, they shut it off. I was a little pissed, but glad to finally relax and get some sleep.

Then at 6 am, the kids still sleeping, I hear obvious loud lovemaking with wild abandon. I start snickering, and my wife looks over at me hard, and then she busts out laughing. We both are just guffawing as the couple is hollering and rutting. My youngest wakes up and wants bacon and eggs and asks what the heck is going on.

It was a crazy weekend. Humans are the weirdest animal in the woods.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
I used to live in very rural Georgia - out the back door I had a neighbor several acres away - out the front the next neighbor was a couple miles away.

The land was on an old saw mill which shut down in the 40s and we had a lake in the front yard. We cleared the land and moved in a new double wide with an open floor plan (the kitchen open to the living room).

One day I was sitting at the table paying bills when a man with a sack on his back walked through the living room. At first I thought it was my son wearing his back pack, but then I realized my son was at his father's. As that notion dawned on me, the man disappeared.

And then one day sitting by the lake fishing I saw a turtle head pop up in the center of the lake - biggest damned thing I'd ever seen - like dog size - and the ripples covered the entire lake. Musta been the biggest snapping turtle ever and explained where my missing ducks had gone. The turtle had prolly been in that lake since the saw mill was built in the 1800s. Needless to say, the kids were no longer allowed to play in the water, lol.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
We were all around the fire around seven of us on a clear night. I alone looked up at just the right time to see an ENORMOUS shrouded, winged creature fly over us, silently. It was right over the tree-line and because of the fire I could tell that it was no beastly owl or anything. Besides I've never seen a bird this big in all my life in these parts. This was a creature. None of the others saw it, and I kept my silence, though kept looking up hoping it would take another pass.

This is the term Castaneda used for that which aligns man with the thought center of service to self.

In Active Side of Infinity, Don Juan tells Castaneda of the Earth being invaded in the mists of time by creatures of condensed darkness, the so-called Flyers, which use man as food.

The idea of flyers is so strange. Many years ago, my son and I were walking at twilight in our suburban neighborhood, and we saw / sensed a huge flying thing ... as wide as a house, pass over our heads and fly by. It was about 25 feet above the street, and about 40-50 feet wide. Grey in color, it was an organic creature. We thought it looked somewhat like a pterodactyl.

Neither one of us got the feeling that we were its food, but felt it was seeking its dinner, but thankfully we were not it. My sense is this was an astral creature who preyed on astral energy, and we had witnessed a bleedthrough of some sort.

Stranger still, a few months ago, we both saw a smaller version of this here in the rural area where we now live. It was also gray, and maybe 12 feet across. We were driving on our two lane country road, and it flew overhead. We both described it immediately as a flying manta ray. My son had seen it earlier that same afternoon, flying straight up, near the trees at the edge of the road as we drove by. So we were driving slowly and scanning the woods to see if we could spot it on our return trip. Suddenly we were surprised to see it fly directly over our car at full wingspread, maybe just ten feet above us.

This creature was definitely physical. But again, perhaps some kind of dimensional bleedthrough may have occurred for us to witness it.

So strange. Nice to have a witness with you when you see something so odd.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Went hiking into the woods one night because I had a dream the night before with some whispering voices telling me I needed to explore these woods. I had never really taken dreams seriously, much less followed instructions received in one, but there was some overwhelming force pulling me to those woods.

So the next day I began hiking into the woods, at around 12:30 at night. About 30-40 minutes into my hike, I started hearing distant machinery. It was unlike anything I've ever heard. It wasn't logging equipment, like chainsaws and hydraulic splitters, it wasn't your typical 3-phase electrical motors powering mills and lathes like you'd hear in a factory, the best way I can describe it is it sounded like a living, breathing, moaning and groaning giant machine that was ripping apart some type of animals that were screaming sounds that I still can't drink out of my mind to this day. I kept traveling towards the sound, but seeing absolutely zero light anywhere in the distance, nor behind me at this point.

I continued for another 10 minutes, moving cautiously to the terrifying noises, questioning my logic a couple times and turning to head back home, but then changing my mind and deciding to continue on to satisfy my curiosity which had never been stimulated to this degree. Then it happened. Silence. What must have been 120db of maddening horror went from a a screeching roar to complete silence. I've never been more scared in my life, I thought for sure I had lost my mind, and it was just absolutely terrifying. I heard footsteps and whispers, many many whispers. The footsteps were getting closer, breaking all kinds of branches and twigs on the ground. And it was growing vast, it wasn't a singular point of sound, it was literally surrounding me 360 degrees.

I'm not ashamed to admit that at this point I was laying on the ground in the fetal position, saying prayers and trying to block out this madness and wake up from this nightmare. But it wasn't a nightmare and the whispering was now discernable for the first time. They were saying "light" over and over. Just then, I remembered that I had packed a lantern in my backpack so I quickly dug it out, and felt my camera in there too. I was thinking that in case my lantern didn't work, I could use the flash on my camera as a light. I discovered I had forgotten any matches, so the lantern was a no-go. What happened next cannot be described, I feel as though it would break and damn my soul if I tried. So I will just post the picture that I snapped there in the woods that instant, and let you decide what it is you're looking at.

Here's the pic...

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Must of been 15 years ago or so my girlfiend and I drove way out into a wooded area in rural southwest Va. We parked at an overllook on the Blue Ridge parkway to make out. As we were moving around to find a more comfortable position she screams and says there's someone staring into the window. I turned around and saw nothing. I could see she was really frightened and I got out and walked around and found nobody. Later in the morning we saw " I watched you " written on the back window of the car.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
Another -

When I was a kid in elementary school a friend and I were exploring the woods behind her house and came across a circle of benches made of logs surrounding an altar made of logs.

It was creepy and it scared us and we ran. Interestingly enough, the land was owned by a church and a few years later they built a giant Baptist church on the site. Over the years I met a few people who attend that church and there is something not right about them - Christian is not a word I'd use to describe them and the church is rather cult-like.

I assume the church founders were the ones responsible for the altar.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
My 3rd weird forest story:

I was in high school with 2 other friends. We drove to the mall at about midnight because we heard the rumor that the Luby's restaurant in the mall stayed open later than the rest of the mall, and we had the plan to somehow sneak into the mall and run around at night.

Well we got to the mall and Luby's was already closed, so we started driving back home. On the way back there was a stretch of the highway that was slightly elevated with a lot of forest on either side. Driving past this part we all noticed a bright orange glow reflecting off these low hanging clouds to our left. This glow was coming from inside the forest.

We all thought it was a forest fire and we were looking for an adventure that night, so we decided to drive into the nearest neighborhood and see if we could somehow get closer to this fire.

Driving around in the neighborhood, we could not find a road that headed in that direction of the woods. So eventually we ended up parking our car and just walking into the woods. We had no flashlights or anything, but the orange glow off the clouds was illuminating the surrounding area somewhat. We basically just walked blindly in the direction of the source of the glow. At this point it was probably about thirty minutes after midnight.

After walking through the woods for awhile, we came across a makeshift road in the forest. It was composed of planks of wood lying one after the other. This road appeared to lead directly to the source of this glow. So we walked along the side of this road, in the direction of the glow.

Ahead of us the road curved and ended at this glow, it was enormously bright and there was a strange metallic grinding or roaring noise. We started to get nervous so we took cover in the woods and approached the destination through the woods, so that if anyone was there they wouldn't immediately see us. We came up to a clearing, my friends crouched down and I climbed a tree so I had the best vantage point.

What we were looking at was basically a clearing, at least a football field in diameter, with a gigantic crater in the center. It looked like a classic moon crater, raised on the edges. There was a HUGE flame coming out of this crater, this flame must have been over a hundred feet across and the flames were as high or higher than the surrounding trees. Standing around this crater were approximately 15-20 men in yellow hazmat suits. In the center of this flame I could barely make out a rectangular black object maybe about the size of a refrigerator. In the background of the clearing, behind this flame, were several large trailer houses.

Occasionally a load metallic grinding or roaring would be heard from the crater, and the flames would leap even higher into the air. I climbed down the tree so I could tell my friends what I had seen. We contemplated just walking out there and asking these men what was going on, but we were young and scared that maybe these people would kill us because we saw something we weren't supposed to see.

Eventually we left, and we spent the whole night theorizing about what was going on in that strange scene in the middle of the night in the woods. If it was just regular people doing some ordinary legitimate work, why do it at 1 in the morning?

Several days later I was telling a friend this story, and he didn't believe me. It was during the daytime and we decided to go back to the scene. We basically retraced my steps exactly, parked in the same place and walked through the woods. We found the road and followed it to the clearing. When we got there we discovered that everything, including the crater, was completely gone. It was simply an empty clearing now. We looked around for clues and found nothing.

I posted this story on a paranormal forum many years ago, asking if anyone knew what these guys were doing. No one could give me an answer, apparently it's very odd that these guys were doing whatever they were doing in the dead of night.

A burned-out gas rig that fell into the Earth. Happens every now and then in the drilling business. Millions of dollars lost, and sometimes lives as well. Some craters take weeks to burn out, some burn out rather quickly. The haz-mat guys were prolly EPA, and after the well burned-out, the drilling/operator company cleaned up their site to EPA standards.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
I have a story...not scary or paranormal, just came across something very "weird", as the title of this thread asks.

While in Ohio in 1996, I drove deep into the mountains of southeast Ohio, parked and hiked into the woods, well away from any trails. I was a very long way from any town, and certainly miles away from any dwelling, and several miles into the woods from where I left my truck. As I tromped through a thick area of the woods (I wanted to make my presence known to any wildlife well in advance), I spotted something bright yellow on the floor of the forest. I walked up to it and discovered a 4-inch diameter pipe sticking straight up out of the ground, about 6 inches above the surface. It was metal, painted bright yellow, uncapped, no smell or odor coming from it, but extending very deep into the ground. The bright yellow paint made it obvious that it was not very old. All the trees and brush immediately around it had obviously been there many years though. The pipe was in the middle of a very dense area of trees and brush that extended for miles.

There was not a single trace anywhere of any construction, roadway, path, structure, dwelling.....nothing but very dense forest and a lot of ground brush, and I was many miles into the hills and mountains of southeast Ohio, a very sparse area. It appeared to be an air vent but as I hiked all around the area at least a half mile radius, I found nothing but dense forest and not a hint of what the "air vent" was connected to.

Any ideas on why a bright colored pipe would be protruding 6 inches above the ground so many miles into the woods and mountains?

Possibly a part that fell from an aircraft? That's my guess.

Re: Wierd things you have seen in the woods.
About eight years ago, myself and a friend of mine went to visit an old abandoned cemetery about thirty miles outside of Phoenix, in the middle of nowhere, middle of the desert. 10pm, middle of August. We brought flashlights, since it's pitch-black out there, away from the light pollution of the city.

Well, we saw the usual scorpions and tarantulas that come out of the desert at night, but the one thing that really weirded us out was this cardboard box that had been dumped in the front corner of the cemetery, just dumped over the wall. There was blood on the outside of the box and when we looked inside, there was just this congealed bloody mess. We couldn't really tell what it was, but my friend said it looked like an aborted/miscarried fetus. We heard a rattlesnake after that, so we left.


I also have another story, not mine, but my brother's. He was camping up in the Minnesota north woods with his girlfriend and a couple of other friends, about twelve years ago now. They were out in the middle of nowhere, really isolated woodland, practically at the border of Canada. They'd made a fire and were sitting around it, eating and talking, when this old woman just walked out of the woods, from out of nowhere. She said she'd seen their fire, and did they mind if she joined them for a little while? They were a little weirded out, but they said sure, you can sit with us.

She said she lived in the woods, but didn't specify where. My brother said she looked like she was about 80 years old, and had a really strange looking face. She was wearing a tattered old dress and had a necklace with all sorts of charms on it; one of his friends who believes in weird stuff said that he thought the woman was a changeling. Anyway, she sat with them for about fifteen minutes, then said she had to be getting home. She thanked them for the company and then just walked off into the woods again.
