Scary cigar break last night.
So last night I had the place to myself for a couple hours & figured it was the perfect time to smoke a stogie.
Typically chilly night like it's mostly been around here for the past week and a half except there was no moon so it was dark. Anyways I spark up the cigar, I was smoking it for less than 5 minutes when I hear yipping, sounded like a drunk man being goofy and loud, it was around midnight & thought it was one of my neighbors since they party every once in a new moon apparently. Then another yip joined in and it was clear as day that they were howling then another and another and another until it was a cacophony of howling. If I had to guess I would say I heard at least 8-9. I thought "cool, I've never heard that before & that's one of the perks of being in the country", didn't think anything else of it.
Another 10 minutes goes by, I hear crackling in the leaves near my house, chocked it up to a branch falling, squirrel having a bad dream lol.. whatever, I grabbed my shotgun anyways.. I'm glad I did because there were more creaks and cracks right afterward and growling, those effers sounded big, more like big dogs than coyotes that I've seen they growled 3-4 times. I hollered, stomped on the deck, smacked the railing, they kept it up.. holy shit, they're stalking me. I wanted one to come on to my deck to get a look at it (maybe get a trophy if it came after me). After the last growl I lost my nerve, went in turned the flood lights on.. a bit more crackling in the tree line and no more growling. My adrenaline was pumping.
Random I know but cigar related. Any of you guys have any experience with coyotes/wolves/wild dogs?
