I know many people have recommended not setting up a hammock on a game trail to avoid getting run into by one of our woodland friends, but has anyone ever actually been run into?
I had a strange experience this past summer. I was relaxing in the hammock, still awake. Probably around 11:30 at night. I could hear sounds of various forest critters scurrying around the underbrush. I suddenly heard some fast soft thumps coming my way before something connected solidly with my backside (meaning my butt). It wasn't heavy, and it didn't seem to slow the critter down in the least, as I heard a few more quick thumps moving away. Judging by the height of the hammock, I'm assuming I was hit by a varying hare. No one was harmed in the collision, but it was one of the stranger experiences in my long time in the bush.
Has any one else had similar run ins?
