I woke up to the crack of gunshot
About 2:30 this morning, I'm sound asleep in my bed in rural Pennsylvania and I woke up to the sudden "crack" of a gunshot. Freaked me out.

I know precisely what gunshots sound like and this one sounded as though it was within 100 years of my house.

I got up, went downstairs, looked out the windows. Nothing. Pitch black.

I turn on the porch light, look, nothing.

I go to the back door, turn on the back deck lights. Nothing.

So now I'm up. My heart rate is skyrocketed, my adrenaline is pumping.

I can't get back to sleep so I brew the morning pot of coffee, grab a cigarette and head out to the front porch to smoke.

It's so quiet. Crickets.

I watch carefully when I'm outside and movement toward the ground catches my eye, to my right. A fucking Bobcat.

I look right at it. Fucking thing stops and sits down! I'm looking at it. It's looking at me.

With that, a sound I can only describe as a heavy tree or tree branch breaks in the woods maybe fifty yards away and crashes to the ground. Scared the shit out of me' my fists clenched reactively.

The Bobcat takes off running. I go back in the house. Adrenaline pumping again.

What a way to start my day.

There's some real shit that goes on deep in the woods at night. In the pitch black darkness.

Makes a man realize how small we actually are.

Re: I woke up to the crack of gunshot
So a falling tree branch HAPPENS to fall and runs off a dangerous bobcat?

You are being protected.
We aren't cut out to be socialists.We are the people who couldn't be constrained by Europe. We are the malcontents, idealists, speculators, dreamers, inventors, debtors and criminals who would not be chained. We don't play well with others, we are brash, outlandish and cunning. let us do what we do best; let us be Americans.

Re: I woke up to the crack of gunshot
I don't think a Bobcat would attack a full grown man. Kinda doubt it.

They are NOT big at all. Slightly larger than maybe a good sized house cat.

Brazen though! Sat down and looked right at me, maybe 25 feet away.

I hope God protects me. It's a comforting thought.

Someone might be hunting/poaching.

I just woke up at 3:45 here in suburban Pa. to the sound of someone knocking on my bedroom door... only no one is awake in my house.

Now I'm up too.
