Description of event: While bowhunting in late nov or early dec of 2002, i fell asleep against a tree stump. about an hour later i was suddenly woken when i heard a crashing sound in the brush behind me. the woods were very dense, maybe 50 to 100 feet behind me is where i think i heard the noise. i heard heavy breathing almost like a a grunt of some sort. at first i thought it might me an elk so i grabbed my bow and looked around the stump. there was a smell in the air, kinda like a really dank stench. not too horrible though. i was alittle creeped out. i sat still for about 10 minutes and the breathing stopped and all became quiet again. i packed up my stuff and got the hell out of there. i had a feeling something was out there. it could have been an elk, but i was eating lunch before i napped. i don't think and elk would wander that close and dissapear like that. anyways, it scared the hell out me.
