COUNTY: Cook County
LOCATION DETAILS: Between Adel and Boyette Town Road
NEAREST TOWN: Adel, GA
NEAREST ROAD: Val Del Rd.
OBSERVED: Been hearing a lot of knocking in the woods close behind my house. It's very loud, and has a repeated pattern like as follows: one loud solid hit, 3 quick taps, then another loud solid hit. Both my father and I have heard this as we are just walking outside.
The scary incidents have happened to me 3 different nights in the weeks prior. Tonight was the most scary as I had at least 3 around my house. I have been knocking back and whistling, to no avail, but sitting out on the back patio I can hear the walking, limbs being broken as it walks. Then everything is quiet, as if they have reached the edge of the wood line and are watching me.
A few times I've sought to entertain them, I'd do silly stuff or whistle a tune. The night before I was met with three limbs being cracked within 30 mins. This was too frequent to be natural. I have tried to get trail cam video, no luck. But the nights when I'm by myself and I go out as per usual. They're already there and waiting on me. Tonight I tried something different, I decided to just casually sit facing the woods and talk to them. I'd just say that I was their friend and I meant them no harm. As I talked, the woods lit up with noise. I was being approached from 3 different directions. But the largest one concerned me, I could hear limbs breaking as it got closer. I had a flashlight but was reluctant to shine it until I was freaked out, the thing was too close. I lit it up. What I could see appeared to be a very large animal not quite to the edge, and colors making it almost indistinguishable from the woods. But the eyes, oh man, they shined bright green. I would've thought it to be a critter only they were spaced about 5 inches apart and I could make out the outline of something squatting, just starting right at me not even blinking. This thing was huge, it nearly made me run seeing it. I turned the light off and went the hell inside. I checked again an hour later, and still could hear it walking around out there.
This is something that has happened to me numerous times, and every time I'm alone I can get a response from them. But if I have someone with me they do not show. There are definitely bigfoots in Adel. And I have some that come to my backyard. There's been only one incident of the house being smacked during the night. And I've noticed that every night as they approach, all the neighborhood dogs go crazy. Now that I've seen them and know what to look for, I see and hear their presence all the time. This is definitely a hot bed. I just don't have the technology to show u definitive proof.
ALSO NOTICED: The first time i encountered them, I was shocked to find the eye shine coming from ground level. It was bad weather that night and poor visibility. I thought it was a small animal, but decided to video it anyway because I was seeing a face. When I walked closer I could tell it was a bigfoot lying flat on the ground watching me through the shrubs. I still have that video.
OTHER WITNESSES: My father has heard the knocking. I will try to find the videos I made. And will try to get something new and promising. They will almost always show up now if I'm out there.
OTHER STORIES: Yes
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Dusk, and at night . Moon lit night. Weather was clear. Unmistakably bigfoot. This is happened 3 different times and it's increasing in its magnitude of exposure on their part.
ENVIRONMENT: Small creek running next to house. Several acres of forest behind the house. It's part pine forest, there's a large pond way back there off our property, and as it gets closer to my house it turns into thick spots of oak, pine, and several types of small foliage. There is a very dense deer population in this specific location also. Each time I've had the bigfoot approach the house, they are coming in on one of two trails we have leading out into the woods. They're coming from far back near where that pond is, I imagine.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator B. Christian:
I contacted the witness and had an in-depth conversation about his experiences over the phone. I arranged a meeting at the property where he has had the encounters.
He claims there are at least four individual bigfoot ranging in height from six to eight feet and one large individual that is at least ten feet in height and perhaps five feet in width. He has only had one daytime sighting. This was in 2017 where he saw a bipedal figure, all black in color, standing approximately 50 meters into the wood line. The witness never was able to get a good look, and the observation lasted for less than a minute. This observation was reenacted by myself and the witness during a visit to the witness's residence. Through this we determined that the figure in question was approximately six feet tall, and that the clothing worn by ourselves could readily be identified at the same distance the figure was seen.
During my visit, the witness and I walked through the forest behind his residence at length and he showed me various tree breaks and tree bends. The height, type, and branch width of the breaks rule out any human or weather-related explanation. Additionally, the style of breaks observed is congruent with other tree breaks and tree structures that I have identified here in southern Georgia.
The witness also permitted me and another investigator to conduct an overnight investigation on his property in late March of 2020. Nothing was visually observed, although we did hear two distinct sets of bipedal footsteps approach us from two separate directions and then withdraw.
The witness lives in rural southern Georgia, an agricultural area of low population density characterized by farmland, conifer plantations, mixed deciduous forest, and swamp in roughly equal measure. Additionally, the witness is only two miles from the Withlacoochee River, a 141-mile-long north to south tributary of the Suwannee River, which possesses a floodplain greenbelt that ranges in width from 1/8 to 1 mile wide that is essentially devoid of human habitation and visitation.
The witness also informed me that his cousin who lives in the area also observed a bigfoot walking across a back pasture near a pond on his cousin's property. The witness is reaching out to coordinate a meeting between myself and his cousin to document his observation in greater detail.
The videos taken by the witness were from a security camera that he installed on his back deck to monitor his backyard in the hopes of catching a bigfoot on film.
I reviewed the footage he has, and while there is definitely some kind of movement occurring behind the wood line of his property, unfortunately, the resolution is such that no features can be distinguished.
However, the witness does have a video that shows a small animal, either a cat or an opossum, being grabbed by what strongly appears to be a hand and forearm that reaches out from behind a bush. The arm and animal disappear for twenty minutes, then the animal is placed back out of the bush and then runs off, seemingly unharmed. I cannot obviously declare that the video shows a bigfoot hand and forearm, but there is nothing else I am aware of that could do what I saw in the video as no other known animals have those same proportions or possess that level of appendage manipulation. I also had the opportunity to go the exact site in person and physically measure the distance the hand and arm reached out. The length of the presumed forearm and hand, as measured from the assumed elbow joint of the unknown animal was six feet.
The videos provided by the witness are saved on his personal computer and uploaded to a private YouTube channel. The resolution unfortunately is low, and as such lacks in the detail required to definitively state that the movement seen in the footage is indeed a bigfoot.
The witnessís description of his multiple sightings and observations, combined with his video footage he captured and my own observations and experiences at that location lead me to conclude that he and his family have a resident population of bigfoot within the area.
