NEAREST TOWN: Henderson
NEAREST ROAD: County Road 262
OBSERVED: Iíll explain our most recent encounter below, but first Iíll tell some additional things that have been heard around where we live.
My wife and I live in a rural area in East Texas about 10- 15 minutes from a town of about 13-14K people [Henderson]. My wife and I have heard howls on 2 different occasions. Once together about a year and a half ago. It was in the afternoon about 4 or 5 P.M. sitting outside with our dogs. Classic Bigfoot howl that sounded a good ways off. She also heard another howl about a year ago at a different property about 3 or 4 miles down the road. Her father and herself were loading up a hog in a hog trailer and she heard the same howl that we had heard together a few months before, but much louder and closer.
The first sighting that she had, which was about 2 1/2 years ago, happened at night while she was letting our dogs back in from using the restroom. The dogs were unusually on high alert while she was trying to call them in. She saw and then heard a very large, dark bipedal ďthingĒ running through the pasture behind us. From the sound she knew it was extremely heavy, and it was too quick for a person. I examined the area that night and the next day but the ground was too firm for tracks. I firmly believe she saw and heard a Bigfoot that evening.
That brings me to her most recent encounter. On 3-4-22, about 9:20 P.M., I get a text from her while sitting in my recliner while she was in the bathtub that she sees red eyes outside the bathroom window looking at her! I wait for her to finish getting out of the bath to talk to her. She explains to me that while she was standing up to get out of the tub, she had the feeling of being watched. She looked over to the window and saw the red eyes looking at her about mid way up the window. After she saw them, she immediately looked away due to being startled. The motion light on that end of the house came on when she looked away, and when she looked back, whatever was there was gone. I asked her if she noticed the light coming on and off before she exited the tub and she said that she didnít recall it coming on, but wasnít really paying attention. She said she wouldnít have noticed the light due to her being on her phone while in the tub, and most of, if not nearly all of the window in her line of sight is blocked by a large plant thatís by the window. The motion light is very sensitive and responds well to the slightest movement. After she saw nothing was there, she immediately closed the window and curtains.
Now to give some context, earlier before she got in the bathtub, I sprayed some coil cleaner on the A-coil in our house to clean it. I turned on the A/C to help the cleaning process. By then she was already in the tub and was complaining to me of the smell going through the house from the coil cleaner. So I went to the bathroom and opened the curtains and the window for her so she could get some fresh air.
She told me that she didnít feel threatened by whatever is was looking at her, just startled to see red eyes and something right outside the window. She did not see the outline of a body, just the eyes. I asked how far apart the eyes were, and from what she showed me, it came out to be about 6 inches apart. Further apart than our eyes are for sure. She said that she did not hear it run away, and did not smell anything unpleasant, except the coil cleaner.
After hearing this, I grabbed my .45 and walked outside to the window to examine the area. I had her go to the window on the inside so that I could get a little more information out of her. Understandably she was pretty shaken up at this point. When I get to the window she showed me approximately how high the eyes were off the ground and where they were positioned. Now keep in mind our house sits off the ground and isnít on a slab. She said the eyes were just below the bottom sash bar of the window. When I opened the window earlier, I opened it up as far as it would go up. Iím 6ft tall and going off where she said the eyes were, I estimated them to be around 6ft 8 to 7ft off the ground. Now the angle that the eyes were in window, was perfectly in line to look through that plant I mentioned to examine my wife in the bathtub. Talk about freaky. I did not notice any footprints on the ground around the window or handprints on the house.
I have been a believer in Bigfoot for years due to stories Iíve heard from certain people and things Iíve heard in the woods in past experiences. My wife has not been a believer but going off of the things that she has heard and now seen with her own eyes, she just might have changed her mind.
