I have had many different experiences when I've been hunting. I once had a nuthatch(bird) sit on my gun barrel and sing to me. Another time, I had 2 stellar jays sitting one one either side of me wanting attention. Checking out my stand area for deer, I've had a rabbit come down an old logging road and disappear to the right of some rocks and than an Ermine(weasel in white winter coat) follow his tracks and then come back and hop around my feet, then jump up on the rock next to me. He acted like he was going to crawl up my arm so i looked down at him and said" well hello there" and the look on his face was precious, like he was thinking "OMG, the rock just talked to me". I didn't spook him though, he continued to hop around my feet. I've had an 8 point buck touch his nose to my scent lure and a 6x7 bull elk come to within 30 yards away from me to check out a deer scent lure. I talked to him too and he stayed for around 15 minutes. He finally turned and walked away and his body was so big and long, that I remember thinking "Holy Cow, is this train ever going to end". A 2x2 young mule deer buck once saw mw walk into the woods and go to my stand and than he went 60 yards away from me and laid down and was there for 2 hours, when I got up to move to another stand, he came down the hil toward me and stood there nibbling on a small pine tree. He was almost close enough for me to touch. I just love being out in the woods.
