    Weird noises

    I was sitting in a stand Wednesday evening. This stand is on a ridge and where I baited bears last year on my Private property. This particular stand is across the line on Sylamore WMA. While sitting there about 5:00 pm I hear a noise like a huge bird (owl, or eagle) flapping its wings. You know the sound where they take flight and you hear the wppsh woosh woosh sound from their wings and the leaves rustling through tree limbs. The longer I listened the more I could hear what sounded like acorns or some type of mast falling on the ground. The noise was in two spots not far apart. And lasted until I climbed down around 6 pm to hike back up the house. I have no idea what made the noose except maybe a bear or two shaking some trees to get acorns or persimmons to fall to the ground.
    Anyone ever heard something like this or seen a bear shaking trees before?

    I agree Turkeys. This is the best thread of the month. All hunters in agreement.

    I agree with the suggestion of turkeys in this case.

    My dad and I saw a bear 30+ feet in a white oak breaking little limbs off eating acorns about 20 years ago. It was making lots of noise thrashing those limbs around. He heard us in the leaves and was on the ground in the blink of an eye. Came down the tree like it as a fireman's pole. It was an unforgettable sight for sure. They are pretty adept at gathering food. I wouldn't put it past one to attempt to shake out a few acorns on smaller trees.

    I walked up to a large white oak while squirrel hunting one year and killed 5 out if it in just a few minutes. It was loaded with acorns, but I noticed alot of limbs broken out in the ends. None if the other trees around it looked that way. When I went to pick up the squirrels, I discovered piles and piles of bear dung under the tree. You could also tell where the bear had climbed up and down, marking the tree very well. It looked like the bear had spent alot if time here, I would have lived to witness the him working that tree.

    You very well may have been listening to a bear. Slip over...in the daylight...and see if you can find a tree that's marked like that.

    The sasquatch has been known to mimic many other animals so yes this most certainly could be the work of a bf. Blurry pictures have proved this truth over and over and over again.

    Turkeys.
