    I'm not sure how close to the water you are but one thing you may want to do is check (during daylight) and see if there's any beaver activity. A beaver makes crazy sounding noises and the brush moving sound you're hearing may be beavers dragging limbs to the water.

    From his expression in that pic, I suspect he may have sat on one.

    Love me some GNP. Spend 2 Weeks in Montana every summer.

    Last year I camped two nights In an area where they drop off the “problem” bears in SW Montana. Saw my fair share of Griz that two days. What sucked is I didn’t know it was where they dropped off those type of bears!

    We had them at Rio Hato, in neighboring Rep de Panama. Rio Hato was a training area for Mech Inf, (M-113's). Often the first time hearing them the gunner would fire a burst of .50cal to quiet them down. (Prior to Canal Zone give away.) 193d Inf Bde.

    I was sitting in my car at work and this wouldn’t load. So, I stuck my phone in my pocket and start d walking in. I had forgotten about this and about three minutes later it started playing. I almost had an accident, you know the kind that requires toilet paper and a change of britches.

    High school & friend & I, hunting on his Dad's ranch, on Medio creek in south Texas. We were hiking back to camp ,full dark,full moon just rising. We're following a old ranch road, little dew starting to accumulate.
    We make a turn in the road, Stop Dead in our tracks : there's a large shimmering light (guess about 50+ yds) moving back & forth in the woods covered road.
    We're looking at each other & watching this get closer &closer.
    Needless to say, hair starting to stand, tension building, we'd both made conscious decision, it was getting too close.
    We raised our Rifles , Trigger pressure building, seem like remember time standing still, THEN, as fixing to fire : MOO, MOO & cow turned and walked into the woods.
    Think it took a second to start breathing again. :yeah::lol5:
    Note : neither of us were foreign to be out in brush country of South Texas at night,either on foot or horseback.
