A white goat walked right up under my stand. And one other time I had a cow that escaped from a nearby farm walk past my stand.

Shot 2 deer off a stand just off a green field in about 3 1/2 days of hunting. Figured I'd try one more time, heard what I thought was a deer coming through the brush..and saw my first--and only--armadillo.
