DATE:    April 18, 2006 

TIME:     1:00 pm 

LOCATION:   Yell County, Arkansas 

TERRAIN:    Very mountainous surrounded in hardwoods. This is also a very rocky area, mixed with small streams and rivers. 

OBSERVED:    I have been actively searching and researching this creature for a few years now, and I decided to take a ride to this area for this purpose. There have been numerous reports in surrounding counties over the years, and also in the Ozark and Ouachita National Forests. I arrived at the location around 12:45 in the afternoon. I was making the climb to the top in my SUV when I saw an observation deck to the right. I pulled off the small road and was walking to the deck, which overlooks miles and miles of country, including the Arkansas River, Lake Dardanelle, and some of the Ozarks. I noticed a group of people on the observation deck, talking and taking pictures, so I stopped short (about 200 feet) and just went as close to the edge of the cliff as I could to see what I could see. I immediately heard very loud and clear "gibberish" coming from over the edge and somewhere down the side of this mountain. I could not see anything while looking down this cliff because my view was obstructed by pine trees and large boulders. The incline was very steep and no man could have successfully climbed down unless he had the proper equipment. But as I stood there in awe, the "talking" took place for at least 5 minutes. I assumed there were at least two creatures communicating, and I remember thinking then and now: what else could it have been? They made grunting sounds and there were no high pitched sounds at all. I kept looking but just could not see anything. After cursing myself for not having my hand held tape recorder with me, I finally continued up the mountain and drove around. This was the only event that took place with me on that day. Of course, the area would be excellent habitat for these creatures, as they would have unlimited sources of food and water. Wildlife include bear, deer, coyote, bobcat, and nearly every small game animal. Also unlimited fish in the waterways surrounding the area, along with fruit trees in certain areas.

Activities of Witness:   On my days off work and many nights too, I take rides around my county, and sometimes I go for longer drives (like this one). Gas prices though, have limited my traveling lately, but I do spend quite a bit of time in the woods in my county (Pulaski), and I often travel to Saline and Perry Counties where part of the Ouachita National Forest is located. I like to travel to areas where recent sightings have been reported. My main reason for traveling to XXXXX that day (which is about 90 miles one way) was because of recent sightings in and around the nearby area. 

Description of Creature:  N/A

Other Notes:    I still think that there may be continuing activity in our woods behind our mobile home. I submitted a report to you about three years ago about a pair of red eyes watching me. I have had continued "events" over the past few years in these woods. Just two nights ago about 1 am, I was awakened by a loud crashing through the woods, just inside the tree line I think. I laid there and finally got up and went outside and could clearly hear bipedal movement just inside our woods. It stopped abruptly after our outside light came on. I checked the woods where the sounds came from yesterday after work. No tracks could be found because it is so rocky under the leaves, but I did find three young, green trees broken off about six to six and a half feet up. the trees stand about 30 feet tall and have a diameter of about five to six inches around where they were snapped and hanging to the ground. If you need any more info, feel free to email me as I love to talk about these animals.

Other (Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:    Yes, the Ozarks is an area for continuing reports and that particular area in Arkansas is well known for different types of evidence over the years.

Additional Notes and or Follow up Comments N/A
