DATE:    1994  

TIME:     Early Morning 

LOCATION:   Cleburne County, Alabama 

TERRAIN:    National Forest 

OBSERVED:    About 14 years ago my wife and I were at a lake in the middle of the XXXXX National Forest in Alabama. We were fishing in a small boat at the end of a slew early in the morning, we were the only ones at the lake, I think it was on a Wednesday and we were all alone. We heard something scream, it started out as a howl and turned into a long high pitched scream and it was so loud it echoed through the mountains. It made the hair stand up on the back of our necks. But that is not all. About a year before that My stepfather and I were hiking around the same lake, we liked to fish at a spillway way on the backside of the lake, and about 1/2 mile into the hike we crossed a fire brake about 20 feet wide, now keep in mind that we are a pretty good way back in the woods, we have crossed rocks thorns and briars and all kinds of rough ground. And right there across the dried mud in the fire brake is a set of foot prints dried into the mud, they were not huge they were about the size of a full grown man but they did look human, I just couldn't understand why a man would be this far back in the woods without shoes on. And over the years there is one thing I have thought about a bigfoot would have to grow up, so maybe it was a young bigfoot 

Activities of Witness:   My wife and I were fishing. 

Description of Creature:  We did not see it. We only heard a scream. 

Other Notes:    My stepfather and a friend were doing some primitive camping and hiking near XXXX Lake (Same Lake as in the above incident) and in the middle of the night my stepfather thought he saw his friend stoke the fire and put wood on the fire. He thanked his friend the next morning for doing that in the middle of the night to keep the fire going and his friend said that he slept like a rock all night and never got up. My step father cant see that well without his glasses on but he said he could see good enough to tell that someone did stoke the fire that night. He could see someone standing moving and stoking the fire.

Other (Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:    I once worked with a man in Alabama that after we became friends, told me he and his whole family were picking huckleberries at XXXX Lake, (Same Lake as in the above incident) the huckleberries grow wild all over the area.
He and his wife and two children were picking away when they all heard something in the trees. They all turned around to see a hairy man standing there. He said it was a little taller than a man and as soon as it saw them it ran off into the woods. It scared them so bad that they left.
