OBSERVED: Figure that was slightly slouched that was hairy and about 9-10 feet tall. I could hear leaves crunching and then I whistled to make it stop. It kept going so I whistled again louder then it stopped once it was behind a trailer. I whistled again to get a response in which I did not.
OTHER WITNESSES: None.
OTHER STORIES: Yes about 3 1/2 years ago when I was in the woods camping (cooking hotdogs) I heard this growling noise and then saw a figure that was about 7-8 foot tall looking at me then I said heyy!! and it ran away. I tracked it the next day and found foot prints in the same area next to the pond which has tall dirt mounds.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 9:00 there were tall poles with
spotlights for security.
ENVIRONMENT: Oak trees and near a pine forest with a pond.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Brumfield:
The witness (H.M) had a second sighting in a 3.5 year period at the same location, behind his home. The first sighting occurred in early fall around 6:30 pm. The witness was cooking hot dogs while camping. HM heard a growl coming from behind about 10 yards away. Following the sound he spotted a large figure about 7-8 feet tall watching him. HM thought it was someone playing games, he called out “Hey”, the creature then ran into the tree line. At the time no real visual description was seen just a tall bulky figure. The next day HM went to where he had seen the creature and he found possible footprints, comparing his boot size (13) and adding an additional 6", made the foot depressions 18” long. Due to heavy leaf litter no casts were made.
The second sighting took place March of 2013 around 9 pm. HM had been outside and heard something heavy crunching leaves. He was surprised to see a large 8-9 foot figure standing under a security light watching him. HM described the creature as very large, around 500 pounds, arms past its knees, dark brown in color, a side view of a chest 1 ˝ foot wide, with a slight "beer belly" The hair/fur was described as about 3-4 inches long and fluffy like. The head came to a point, sort of oval. The witness whistled at the creature which turned to look at HM, then moved off to the wood line with a long stride. No vocals were heard and no tracks or other evidence was found. The creature had been walking behind some trailers that sat close to the edge of the woods, near some trash dumpsters. It was apparently using the trailers for cover. His mother confirmed this event with me, although she didn't see anything.
The area has a 3 mile strip that is populated then turns into acres of timber. There is an elk farm just a few miles down the road. Plenty of deer are present, along with many water resources.
