While boon docking, what wild animals have you come across at your camp site?

Bison and deer. Alligators in Okeefenokee. along with various sea birds such at the beach in Fla.
Most fun was a couple of disgruntled marmots who kept growling at us every time we passed their den

I'll bet you don't do any cooking outside ; or go outside for that matter; without a 9mm on your hip.

We dont boondock but we do much off-road in the Wrangler. If there are critters, we see them. Too many to mention.

But we camped in zip.nuthin in tents, back when. Black bear in camp simply licked out the fry pan and moved on.

It all depends on where you are boon docking.

Fox, coyote, raccoon, possum, Lynx, deer, skunk, rabbit and a whole host of others ---- oh wait that was at the S&B in Michigan.

But as for camping ... the RV park we stayed at not that long ago was right down the road from a wild cat preserve. They would assure campers that the noises were from there and they were caged. What they did not tell the campers was there were also mountain lions that would sometimes come down and sleep on the picnic tables where they had tents pitch right next to the office. And don't let your cat or dog wander around alone cause there is also fox and coyote that like to eat them.

While camping and 4 wheeling in Utah, one son accidentally got between a mother and baby badger. That was a bit scary, but the most frightening was a young elk who dashed out of a woods and nearly leaped into my son while he was on his 4 wheeler. Nobody was going fast ( well the people anyway) but that Could have been serious.

I tripped over a sleeping seal once while camping on the beach in New Zealand. Scared both of us half to death. He went "ARR,ARR,ARRR!", and I went "YAHHHHhhhhhhhhh!".
