Lawrence County Indiana
Densely wooded forest with deep hollers, steep hills, sink holes, caves
I was squirrel hunting in late afternoon, and ended up hunting farther
away from my truck than I had planned on. Subsequently, it got dark, as
I was heading back. I didn't have a light, and was only barely able
to make out the faint trail that I was following back towards "sally hill".
It was as I was approaching the southern base of the hill, (it's like 908
ft tall) walking quietly but rapidly, when I heard what sounded like two
baseball bats (wooden) being struck very forcefully together 3 times, with
about a 2 sec interval between the strikes. These sounds came from slightly
above me, like from a bench of the hillside maybe 50-75 yrds away. They
made me stop in my tracks, and my hair stand up, also had a very strong
feeling of dread/fear, and felt the need to walk more quietly. About
30 min later, after having walked constantly, and in the same direction,
I once more heard the same thing, (exactly!), once more from the same side
of the trail, and STILL pretty much even with me!?, maybe only a little
farther away-75-100 yds? Then approx. 15 min later, I came out at the end
of a dead-end gravel road, and just needed to walk the 1/2 mile uphill
to get to my truck. I heard nothing more unnusual. After reading
up on other sightings, etc.. I have since remembered seeing "stacked" tree
limbs against a tree, just the previous day, approx. 6 miles due north
of this site, also of natl. forest property. At the time I passed it off
as something kids would do, like building a "fort" in the woods, not so
Activities of Witness:
Early season squirrel hunting
Description of Creature:
Didn't see anything, howenver whatever struck those two "large, cured-not
dead wood or puny" pieces of wood together, did it with alot of strength/force,
as well as with a deliberate pause in between. At the time, I got the feeling
it was an attempt to communicate with another, (me?-maybe it mistook me
for another, walking quietly, and with no light, for over an hour in the
dark, and from where there are no houses or roads for a few miles)
I have heard of reports west in Martin Co. as well as in n/e Lawrence Co.
