    My grandpa once told me that they would go out and target hawks(when it was legal) because of how much of a predator they are to quail.

    I had a screech owl smack me in the back of the head before light one morning while in the tree stand. It sat on a branch in front of me. I figured it was a accidental bump, but then it flew back around the back of me and did it again. Only thing I could figure was when I took my hat off that I had folded up, it did look somewhat like an owls face in the back. Guess he thought I was a competitor.

    Had a bald eagle buzz a stand I was in on the bank of a small river. He was about 15 feet away, and BELOW my line of vision. Heard his wing flaps, then turned and watched him. He looked to be cruising the river for food. Awesome experience.

    I have also had a lot of luck calling in owls when calling for coyotes at night. In fact usually call in far more owls than coyotes.

    I have one particular stand were owls love to buzz me or check out if I am viable food source. It is quite entertaining.

    I was hunting along a woodlot when a strange feeling crept up my neck. I turned around just as a great horned owl glided two feet over my head. Took my breath away. A barred owl did it again last year, just at dusk. Interrupted hawks twice that were after a squirrel and a grouse and shifted their course close enough to touch.

    While turkey hunting owls and hawks of various species have made themselves known quite frequently, even trying to "kill" and fly away with decoys!

    I had a grouse sit in the crook of a tree 10 feet in front of me. On the way home, one flew into my antenna. He may've been following me.

    I have had a red tailed hawk and a red shouldered hawk land on a branch about 15 feet away and just sit there for 10 minuets. I have also had a owl fly over my head at dusk walking out of the woods.

    I had a red-tail swoop down and hit my turkey deke one time. It was an inflatable, I dont know he didn't pop it.
