For the past month or so, I've been seeing things and hearing things around the yard after dark. One night, I saw a flashlight shining at the deck door, until I went over to see wtf it was, which is when it was pointing at the ground by the dog pen out back then just disappeared. Another time was when the midnight train went through town and riled up the coyotes. I wanted to go out and see if I could see them, so I grabbed my Mag Light and shined it out towards the fence row, southeast of the house. I didn't see anything, but off to the west in the bean field, I heard "COME ON!!!... COME ON!!!...", then the sound of someone falling in the beans, followed by "oh shit..."
Tonight, I have my east window open to let some fresh air in. Starting at about 9:30PM, I heard what sounded like someone trying to climb through the bushes. I went out to the garage to find the baseball bat, and a car took off from in front of our house. The car went down the road a little ways, stopped, backed up in front of my neighbor's house, then took off really fast into the subdivision. I grabbed a piece of steel pipe out of the garage, then came back in and resumed what I was working on. A little while later, I heard the sound again. This time, I went running out the garage door, around to this end of the house, looking for something out of the ordinary. As I stood at the east end of the house looking for movement, I heard the noises again, but over behind the shed in the back yard. Since I was alone and had just a steel pipe and a Mag Light, I decided to not go investigate over there.
Again, I came back to my room and resumed my task at hand, and a while later, guess what...
This time I quietly went out to the front porch, pipe over my shoulder, flashlight over the other, and waited for any noises. During this time, a county sherrif drove by. I couldn't determine whether I should have been relaxed or more paranoid. Regardless, I continued to wait for a noise. When I heard what I was waiting for, I jumped up, ran to where the sound came from, and looked all around the area for whatever it was. I found nothing.
So, back in my room, I kept hearing it. I was getting sick of hearing it, but not clearly, so I turned my music off and waited. My music has now been off for about an hour, and I've not heard it once.
perhaps its someone nearby doing something normal, the wind is carrying the sound? Just make sure that you have the implement nearby and beat the shit out of anyone that comes near!

it's probably drunk farm boys wandering around the swamp

Just so you know, that wasn't me that said it.
