Well last night I was trying to fall asleep. All of the sudden I hear a long meow, followed by a hiss, a bang on the window and a thud. Went to a window and I see a feral cat laying on the ground. Poor little guy was scared of me and did a running limp to who knows where.

Sitting up last night with my ole lab sharing a piece of meat loaf with some spuds. She and i look at each other rather quickly due to a odd and loud noise outside the back door. I grab a flash light and head out the door. not but 12 feet away at the bottom of the steps stand two buck white tails eating the tall grass i have yet to knock down. I noticed today that their antlers where hitting the bottom step making the odd noise. They never ran away.. Ohh well I will see if they are there tonight.

I've been hearing at night a new sound that I've never heard before, it's some kind of critter, just no idea what it is.


Nothing supernatural, I hope. How far are you from the Barrens?

Rich, I'm about a mile or so from the largest state forest in NJ. 115,000 acres of pine barrens.

Just might be the jersey devil, but it sounds like a small creature.

Pissed off house wife next door???

115000 acres.. how sweet.. Now do tell the truth.. Would it be safe to go in there or do a lot of the scum of the area hide out in there. Why i ask. 400 yards from my back door is a 14000 acre park. Short of the wild life (bears, cougars(four legged not two), deer, elk and moose) it's safe to go in there.. I love it here. I just sat on the back step watching two deer (possibly the ones from last night) eat the field grass and a wolf go running past the yotie that was spieing on a duck to go catch.. Man the wife life here is fantastic..

A lot of the scum are buried there "they say". Many bodies have turned up in there, but years ago. Seems that the Philly and even NY city mobs used it as a disposal area for those they did not want found. I know some of the stories are true. My best friend was stationed at a state police barracks in the area in the late 70's early 80's.

Besides that, it's a great place to visit. Lots of critters, deer, turkey, coyotes and now even bear.

I've been lost many times riding on the sand roads that all seem to look the same. Pre GPS days.

What's that Brown guys name that teaches tracking? He is supposed to have grown up in there.

Would it be safe to go in there or do a lot of the scum of the area hide out in there?


I loved the time I spent in N. California in the 70s, but I'm told now, if you go hiking, you might trip a set trap of some kind.

This is pretty much what i was thinking for Jersey boys place... I know there are lots of areas in British Columbia That you don't go into alone for all the "herbal Medicine" that is grown out there..

I don't want to knock this thread too far off topic, so I have started a new thread titled"Is It Real". The original thread will resume after this commercial.
