Near death experiences

Ok, post videos about the time you came close to death and survived in a dramatic or interesting way. Here's something that happened to me last night. It really made me jump.

How did you survive that . It’s actually had your arm in its mouth 😂

How I survived dynamite from a griefer, then a shootout with those npc's. Then my horse crashing into me at the end.

I don't have a video but I once got rammed off a cliff by the angry Deer that seems to spawn when you are near the edge, went flying, broke my back over a tree branch, flipped around it and landed on my feet.

Two memorable incidents:

 

The first was the last time the daily for rowing a boat came up, I was in Lagras for a little fishing and a rowboat glided into view, so I waited 'til it got near in a shallow bit of the channel, waded out a little, lasso'd the NPC in the boat, and hopped in.

As I was just barely in the boat a gator snapped and just caught my character's leg a glancing bite, very close call!

 

The second was yesterday as I was loading a deer on my horse in the woods around Ringneck Creek and a buck came out of nowhere with obvious intent to take me out, but something about the animation of stashing the carcass on my horse saved me from getting hammered by the charging buck, which then ran off. I promptly took a couple of shots at him, but missed due to all the trees.

These buggers have rammed me off cliffs, and thoroughly stomped me from time to time.

Deer are big butt heads in this game... Hehe..

One time I got on my horse and an bull elk came out of nowhere and rammed into my horse, the horse just reared a bit and the elk ran off leaving me there like "what the hell just happened?"

 

Now this is what happens when I try to help people out.

 

 

What makes me mad is that this was a perfect cougar, I hardly see perfect cougars anymore... Grrrr

Wow, you are too nice. I would have put the cougar on my horse and made the stranger walk.

I didn't realize that Buck/deer are (or can be) that way IRL:

^^ My (obviously wrong) assumption has been that, because they usually run when you get closer, they don't attack people--just other deer, etc.

I've actually had one chase me around a tree a bit when I saw him coming at me out of the corner of my eye.

It's why every hunter knows not to walk up on a downed buck without extreme caution and your gun ready. Darn things will go all fainting goat on you, play possum for a moment, and when you get close they'll lash out. They are especially vicious during the rut, and if you see one hanging about during that time it's best to leave him be and keep a huge distance between you because the crazy things lose all sense of self preservation sometimes and will charge at anything, even vehicles.

Any animal with a rack or horns can mess up your day real quick, but really most animals of any reasonable size have pretty good defensive capabilities vs humans, I have a healthy respect and give them plenty of room IRL.

I survived but I wish I'd waited to see what happened. Muscle memory took over.
