Yes it is true. On the opening morning, I was walking (sneaking down the trail) to some bugeling that was up ahead. I came around some brush to be greeted by an Alien. He was close enought that I could count his freaking Eye lashes. ( I would say inside of 10 Yards).. I froze and we had a starring contest for about 2 Min. I said something to my dad just loud enough for him to hear me. I asked him if we wanted a spoting scope. He laughed, and we let the alien walk off.

I was about 500 yards from camp. But about a 3hr horse ride from the trucks, and there was no way that I was going to shoot a spike that early in the hunt and that far away from the trucks. But yes the oportunity was there, tempting me.
