OBSERVED: In January of 2004, several hunters were sleeping at their camp which was located at the mouth of a canal entering a large lake area, all surrounded by deep cypress swamp.
As they always did when the weather was moderate for that time of year, the front door to the camp was left open in order to get a cool breeze through the camp, only the screen door was closed and locked.
the early morning hours, the hunter who was sleeping in the front room
with the opened door, was awakened by a loud thumping against the camp.
As he came too, he realized that the thumping was the screen door being
pulled and released. What he saw was a very large creature, stooped
down fumbling with the screen door and was now staring at him through the
screen. He described the creature as being much taller than the door
frame and was stooping down. Being very much alarmed he woke the
rest of the camp up shouting then they all heard something moving very
fast alongside the camp headed back into the cypress swamp.
Activities of Witness: Sleeping in bed with door opened towards the lake.
of Creature: Taller than the door
Notes: The previous
owner of the camp, would not venture out after dark, acknowledging that
something was always in the area.
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
Yes! One sighting and encounter reported to GCBRO, several miles
north from this location. The time of year seems to be significant
in these reports from this area. All late December through January
Notes and or Follow up Comments:
I just submitted a report from St. Martin Parish dated back to January
of 2004. One of my guys was able to attend a hunt out of this camp
which controls roughly a thousand acres of swampland. Itís private
and the folks who own this land have had it since the beginning of time...all
are extremely wealthy etc...you get the picture...this has been private
land for ages and gated at every canal and passageway. Very few people
outside of them, and maybe some cajun outlaws hunt the property, the canals
are gated with iron bars and locks so no fishing is allowed either!
Well after the day hunt, the camp talk started around the topic of strange things in the swamp. Well the now owner of the property started with his BF story which I reported. This was told to my employee who relayed the story to me.
