Footsteps in the woods/u/Skruttlutt

This is an experience I had a few years ago which made me believe in the paranomal and I hope you find it as interesting and creepy as I did. English as second language so I'll try my best. So I went out a very early morning around 5 am to take photos in the forrest since I have always liked the "vibe" of the forrest, especially during mornings since it has a kind of calmness to it. I live in central sweden where we have many deep forrests everywhere where much of it is "untouched", think plenty of moss and old trees. This particular forrest I went to was quite near my home, however since I lived on the countryside I was very alone with no other soul around. During this morning there was also fog lingering in the treetops from the surrounding rivers which looked really cool to be honest so I was soo ready to take some cool photos.

I went into the forrest after parking my car along the road that went beside it and started walking straight in. After maybe 100 meters I stopped to take some photos, mostly of dead trees and mushrooms and things like that(I was 20 and felt very artsy). After a few minutes I started hearing knocks on trees. Probably a bird I thought since we have woodpeckers around here so hearing that wasnt unusual. The strange thing is that I started looking for it since it came from a tree that was right beside me but could not find it. Unlucky I thought, I wanted to see if I could get a nice photo but I decided to move on.

I continued walking into the forrest when I noticed something. The knocking or pecking seemed to follow me as I walked. It continiously knocked on trees close to me. At this point I didnt think too much about it, however that would change after a while. I stopped at a spot that looked really nice to setup my camera on a tripod in an attempt to maybe snap some cool photos of the surrounding area and treetops. I sat down and continued to hear the knocking on a tree just a few meters behind me. At this point I started to feel a little weird since I had really noticed how it seemed to follow me. A few second later while changing my camera settings I suddenly heard several very loud, clear and heavy footseps behind me that rapidly came closer and closer until it was right behind me, my whole body frose. I have not til this day experienced chills like that through my entire body. After what felt like several second I flew up and turned to what I thought was some kind of big animal, but nothing was there. For context beside a few trees this area was not dense. Just a few trees here and there but mostly moss and grass.

I picked up all my things and started walking really fast back towards my car and thats when the knocking started again. It followed me again and I just knew something was "mocking" me so I even said out loud "yes I am leaving". I knew that whatever it was it did not want me there. I continued to hear the knocking until I came back to the spot where I first started hearing it and it just stopped. I did not. I went straight back to my car and went home.

Before this I was sceptical to the paranormal but it really changed my views. Since then I have only had one more experience but this is the one that really scared me.
