Default Earthquake got me thinking

How little we are and how small our problems are.

NO! Not that at all.

Our neighbors to the west had an earthquake the other day that we felt here. It was a relatively small quake like a 2.0. We have small shakes all the time most are never felt.
It brought to mind a time my boy and I where calling coyotes way east-central Montana. Sitting in a sagebrush flat MILES from what could be called a county road capable of normal traffic. In the middle of the call on a dead spot ( caller muted ) we both could hear a "Whooshing" sound in the west and it moved by us. No trees in Montana and there was no wind going on. We felt what was like a semi going by on a road. After when we were talking about it we did both notice birds flying out of the brush in front of the whoosh.
We discounted all the possibility and the fact we were a 1/4 mile apart we ascertain it was an earthquake. Thinking about it more over time I think I remember others when I was out hunting. The only time I felt them was when My butt was in contact with the ground or in timber and hear and saw the trees moving.
We had a fair-sized on a wail back early morning at home.
It freaked the cats out which woke us up and we felt the bed move and dishes raddled. The window was open and the very distinctive"Whoosh" sound was herd by my wife and myself.
Anyone else felt them out hunting and what was going on with the wildlife at the time?
You decide !!!
