Hunter or hunted

About four or five years ago I was on a hunting trip with my grandfather. I am nineteen now, so I must have been fourteen or fifteen at the time. I had been hunting for a few years by this point and I had grown up on a lot of a few acres and my grandparents lived close by with fifty acres that bordered public land and some old logging land. So I have spent a very good portion of my life in the forest and was no stranger to the wilderness.

This all takes place in northern Idaho. Id rather not disclose exactly where, for the sake of the residents of the area. I will just say that this all happened a little over 1o miles north of the largest ski resort in the area, so if you’re from around here you’ll know the area I’m referring to.

Mysterious Flying Creature

This happened 2 years ago when I was 17. It was New Year’s Eve, and we were all busy partying at our farmhouse.

My cousin Joe suggested we go out into the woods to do some stargazing after the celebrations. Joe and I had a lot of common friends since we attended the same school, so we got two of our friends to come with us.

One Time In the Woods

I grew up on a farm surrounded by woods, and where there weren’t woods there were fields. Our property was edged by two creeks, the smaller feeding into the larger. The larger creek was dangerous, as some parts were only inches deep while other parts were as deep as twenty. I saw many things in that creek and most of them with my best friend John.

I am no stranger to being in the woods, and I know that woods can be inherently creepy to those who spend little time in them. Forests are full of eyes watching you even if you can’t see them, but for the most part, they go unnoticed by our senses. Sometimes though I felt something or someone watching me. I refused to ever go into the woods alone at night because dusk and dark were when the feeling of being watched was most pervasive.

The Thing in the Caves

I’m not really sure where to begin with this story, but here goes nothing. I’m a 21 year old girl living in a part of England known as ‘The Black Country’, it’s called this as it has a large history in mining, although all these mines have now been closed for a very long time. I often walk my dog, a chihuahua, through the fields and woods near my house. The event I’m writing about happened last month, but I can still remember it as clearly asif it just happened.

It was around midday, and it became time for me to take my dog lady for a walk. As we’re walking through a small woods behind my house, scattered with rubbish and unwanted belongings, my dog often ventures through the bushes and trees, as she’s so small this is no problem for her, but I usually have to find another way around. As we were walking along a stream, I realise I hadn’t seen her for a while, so I start looking in every small place she could be.

What Was the Creature

This happened in my hometown in Maine, in this town, there are a bunch of bike paths that lead through a huge forest just along the outskirts of town, the edge of the woods is about a five-minute car ride and about a ten-minute bike ride, in this woods is where this horrifying experience happened. I was riding my bike near my friend’s house with my friend in the country because I love bike riding through the woods and in the country and the peace and quiet but I haven’t been to those woods or to my friend’s house since this incident because of how traumatizing this was. My friend and I went back to his house until nine o’clock when I had to be home. I told my friend I was leaving and I left.

It was pretty dark and I was a little scared to ride home alone but I put my earbuds in and starting listening to my favorite music and it calmed me down a bit. I started to ride home and I decided to go through the woods as it was longer and I was enjoying cruising with the summer breeze on my sweaty face and body, I also enjoyed the peace and quiet as in town by where my house is, it is very loud and obnoxious.
