Get it all the time. Spent all my childhood up till now in the outdoors, Hunting,fishing, and camping. Have always seemed to have a strong connection with my surroundings, feel at home while in the woods.
 I seem to see a Hawk of some kind or another before I kill something. Last fall I had a Coopers Hawk land on a branch not 5ft from me and walk back and forth makeing a chirrping sound the hole time. He must have done this for 5min or more the whole time looking at me. He then flew down and too the west along a deer trail. I kept looking donw that trail and not 15 min later a big doe and her twins came down that trail and she gave me a nice 5yd shot.
 This has happend more than once. I don't get a shot every time, but do see game of one kind or another after a hawk has been seen. Also have a lot what JC said in his post happen.
 Just keep your mind open and they will talk with you. We are all connected in the Web of life, it only makes sense that we can understand oneanother in one form or another  :readit:    ;)  .............Raven

Interesting discussion.
Ferret's remarks remind me very much of the perspective of the Native American's who believe that the animal gives up it's life to the hunter as opposed to the hunter just taking the life.  From a personal point of view, hunting has an emotional and spiritual connection.  Thus, there are times when the animal that shouldn't be there somehow just is and the arrow that shouldn't connect, sometimes just does.

I absolutely believe in sixth sense (who was it that called it Hunter's sense?)

I use to deny it, ignore it, laugh at it. Since I accepted it as real, things have been much different.

Got to open your mind as they say.

CK...nope! My sixth sense told me I wouldn't!   :D

The plan is ongoing, though!

After a lot of years in law enforcement you develop a type of 6th sense when something is just not right, same thing in the woods. I suspect you hear, see, smell something subconsciously that is just on the back burner of the mind untill you see whatever it was you picked up on. You are not crazy it happens a lot if a person is really atuned to where they are.
