So I’m walking out of the woods one night after sitting till dark deer hunting. As I come to a clearing I have the very felling you mentioned. Someone or something is watching me. I took a few more steps and stop and I swear I hear foot steps and they stop too. Now I’m on high alert !!
I slowly make my way out to my truck and go back next morning to find 5 wolf tracks in the snow, 2 circled to my right and the others to my left within about 25 yds. Never did see them but it sure made me more cautiousness about my surroundings from then on!!
