It was getting dark, so I decided to head back to the truck.I had a small head lamp you can get from had to walk back on the game trail to get to where I parked the truck. On the way back I caught movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked and saw orange colored eyes shine and a jet black figure that stood every bit of 7ft tall. He was just standing there watching me. The whole encounter lasted 5-10 seconds when he just turned around and walked away.I couldnt make out alot of the figures of the face due to the lamp light but I know what I saw.and the eye shine. Before I got back to the truck I knew he was there, I could feel him watching. And I heard a power break from a tree being broken.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Rich Meyer:

I contacted William and talked with him at length about this experience. This is actually not his first nor last encounter at this location. The area has the cover, food and water that would be needed as a large predator moved through. William and I will be visiting the area and keeping up research to figure out if this is a family group living in the area or just passing through.
