Well since I am in N.Lwr MI I can say there are some trespassers up here still. Most of the time they just need to be told to leave .
Had someone drawn on me they would most likely would not have a good morning.

Finger was not on trigger.
I aimed at the direction of the noise / shadow. Was not there when I aimed flashlight. I did hear movement in the distance but the pines are so thick could not see that far.
I found it interesting that I was able to draw and aim the firearm with the right hand faster then I could draw, turn on, and aim the flashlight with my left (flashlight was clipped on sling with a on/off button/switch on the back).
Thanks to those defending, but I'm happy I posted, as I think I made a mistake, and even if the feedback might be considered harsh, it is fair, and good to have. Much rather get tough talk on an internet forum then in RL with a LEO asking questions.
I more careful with a rifle in the same way (would not aim at a shadow just because I heard something). I always feel somehow under prepared for a SD (2 or 4 legged) situation when hunting, and have not thought through the variables. It is great to be able to post and get thoughts.
I'll keep this thread for thoughts on while hunting and there is a shadow.
Here is a new thread for the Home SD option.

I have a feeling if it was a game warden, it would have been "shining." For several reasons I made a mistake, and in a way, it comes down to a different / higher standard when hunting.
Please don't make to much fun of me, but I've been attacked by a deer (was not wearing anything like a scent, just walking the woods, and I was actually stalked / challenged twice by the same deer in a 5 minute period). So I'm thinking SD even in the woods.
It is not that often you are walking around the woods at 3:30 AM with no light. I did not think about it in advance, in hindsight, light up, hand on pistol. Maybe still an argument about shining, but one I think could be more easily defended.
