I had this experience several years ago. Ive had a ground blind built of sticks and brush in the same spot for close to 20 years. I just keep building it back up year after year. Opening morning several years about an hour before dawn, I got in the blind as quietly as possible and sat down on my seat. After about 10 minutes of dead quiet I stretched my legs out under the brush at the front of the blind and had a huge porcupine take an extreme dislike to my left foot. Talk about nearly dumping in your pants! That darn thing pulled me right off my folding seat. After a couple of minutes complete fright I finally kicked enough of the brush out with my right foot and whacked it on the head to let me go. Good thing had my steel toe boots on. Geeeez!

I had the most horrible experience a long while back. I have been using this nice spot with a lot of bushes pulled up to rest and get warm for over 15 years. One early morning while I was resting there getting warm, a horrible monster sat down by me and then shoved his big paw right towards my face. In a purely defensive mode, I locked my teeth into his hoof, but it was as hard as stone. I held on until this monster whacked me upside my head and I had to let go. I then wandered away dazed, but not hurt.
