Anyone notice if wild animals act differently you toward you (hypothesis: from your smell they know you are not hunting them to eat.) Last time I went hiking, I was almost stepping on animals because they would just walk way (not run.) I used to hike around woods all the time and never recall wild animals being so uninterested in me before (they usually ran before I even saw them, only seeing a glimpse as they did so.)
The bunnies usually let me get 8-10 feet away on my hike before they run away.
When I walk with some friends and their dog, we never see bunnies.
Now that I think about it, last fall I didn't see many bunnies on my hikes.
I ate meat for every meal last fall.
