(Show Printer-friendly Version)

YEAR: 2014


MONTH: November


STATE: Illinois

COUNTY: Macoupin County

LOCATION DETAILS: From Carlinville head west on Illinois Route 108. Just east of Hagaman turnoff is where I sighted it.


NEAREST ROAD: Illinois Route 108

OBSERVED: This is the second time that I have seen Bigfoot in my lifetime. Both sightings have been in the same vicinity. Here is my story of tonight's sighting. I was going home from work from Carlinville and was driving west of Illinois Route 108. As I approached a hill that was just east of the Hagaman turnoff I noticed a tall reddish brown creature crossing the highway going north. It was at least 7-8 feet tall and was in the standing position. As I approached the area that I saw it cross I looked in that direction and it was no where in sight. I want to add that there have been many sightings in this area. It is in Macoupin County, Illinois and both of my sightings were in an area known as "Hagaman Bottoms". There is a creek there and it is a wooded area. The sighting occurred at around 5:15 p.m. and it was still daylight but it was getting dark at this time due to daylight savings time ending this past weekend.


OTHER WITNESSES: Just myself and I was driving home.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Around 5:15 p.m. It was just starting to get dark and it was gloomy/cloudy. No rain or snow during this time.

ENVIRONMENT: Trees, farm ground, creek. Town named Hagaman near by with many residential homes.
