Was looking at my first hanging adventure last year in Glacier Peak Wilderness and reminded me of the family herd of deer that hung within 10 yards of my hammock (at about 2 a.m.).
Noise woke me up, raised myself up and scanned with my red headlamp and spotted all these pairs of eyes staring back!!! The quietness of the hammock didn't scare them and they kept eating and eventually walked away. Of course initially I thought a bear was sizing me up!
At a different location the following night I hung on some trees next to a grass field. Same thing happened and 3 deer actually laid down and slept within 15-20 yards of my hammock for about 2 hours.
Only in a hammock!!! loved it!
Here is a picture of the first time I hammock'd (?) @Glacier Peak Wilderness
p.s. yes those are kangaroo skin five-fingers on my feet that I hike in.
I have since SOLD ALL my tents and done about 25+ days in my hammock...both motorcycling and hiking trips. Won't turn back now but will add a ridge line so I can store a camera in the future.
