      Sometimes i've been awakened by herds of deer leaping over me in the night. they could have easily gone around, but apparently enjoyed too much. ;-)

      Actually, in three years of hammocking I have never had a wildlife encounter while in a hammock. Bugs are easy enough to deal with using netting or or non-deet reppellant (deet will leave you on the ground if you're not careful.)

      Ain't got no mo' mojo, but I got plenty o' banjo.

      Subject: [Hammock Camping] Pros and Cons

      Hi,I'm new to this group and love backpacking and stealth camping and
      I've heard all the pros about hammock camping, but what about the cons?
      I've read some people on other sites are worried about bears and flying
      bugs eating you alive in a hammock. I'm thinking of purchasing a clark
      hammock as I don't have the time now for a DIY hammock. Every form of
      camping has it's pro's and con's, lets hear the con's. By the way I've
      had bears come right up to our tent look around then leave, so what's
      the problem others have had or think they might have in a hammock?
