OBSERVED: I was climbing down with my climbing deer stand when the strangest howl came from directly behind me. I grew up in a swamp I know what all the night animals sound like. This was blood curdling. I have heard it before and did not see a deer there the rest of the year. I quit hunting that marsh this year after that howl. I did not have a deer picture since 11-23-14 in that area.
ALSO NOTICED: No
OTHER WITNESSES: Just me
OTHER STORIES: Nothing except tree knocks
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 5:50pm wind was blowing hard it was pretty well about dark
ENVIRONMENT: Creek bottom running into a marsh, the old folks use to talk about Cullen Baker had a cave close to there.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Brad Bacon:
I spoke to the witness in a phone interview and can include additional information. The witness is a life long resident of the area. He is familiar with all types of wildlife and admitted he knows well the sounds a Sasquatch will make as he has heard them all his life. According to the witness, they have always been in this area. He reported that when he was young he and his family knew they were around his homestead by the watermelons they would take, and by the remnants they would leave behind. The witness also commented that as a teenager, he and his friends would take their dates over to Fouke, AR to the house from The Legend of Boggy Creek for some scary fun.
The witness said he had never felt any reason to be concerned until his hunting experience. The witness had hunted this area before but this was the first time that he felt it was made clear to him that he was not welcome to be hunting in that area. The day of our conversation, the witness said he decided to "man up" and return to that area and said he was rewarded by getting a deer earlier that morning. Like most witnesses and hunters, he confided that he had been ridiculed for his belief and therefore rarely discusses the subject. He contacted BFRO because he felt like we would want to know. I thanked the witness for his report and he said he appreciated the opportunity to discuss the subject credibly. I found the witness to be candid and credible as well.
