Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TF Zamiski:
I spoke with this witness by phone on 12/9/12.
He is a fan of the Finding Bigfoot show and an admitted skeptic but now leaning toward believing in their existence. Earlier in the evening after setting up camp, around 5:30pm he did a couple wood knocks. They spent the evening at camp watching deer.
The screams woke him and his friend up from a sound sleep about 2:30am. He is unsure of how many vocalizations he heard but there were several over a 4 to 5 minute period. The sounds came from perhaps 40 yards away followed by the snap of a limb.
After searching for vocalizations he found the attached multimedia link, number 8 in the series of recordings with the pictured gorilla was close to what he heard.
He plans to return with night vision and recording devices in the spring.
