in response to andy. naturalist big whoop. paranoia has nothing to do with it dude, check yourself for paranoia with your fear of snakes, tigers, getting the sniffles, and have pebbles fall of the cliff. i'm 34 now and been hunting since i was 12 and all the times i've been in the woods alone i was never scared and that includes being right next to bears. this has been the only time i was ever scared. and a cat will come out from any direction not directly behind sorry cats think differently from the creepy guy in the woods.
