My mother in law, my husband, 3 of my children, and I were all walking
on the trails behind (and at the top of) XXXXXX Hill. We were walking
north on a small foot trail, to go east on a trail that connects XXXXX
and XXXXX, it's like an ATV trail. As we approached the ATV trail (it was
very grown in with trees, bushes, and tall grass,) we heard something to
our left in the bushes, and at the same time, a whitetail deer jumped out
of the bushes and ran right in front of us. The deer looked spooked, but
it wasn't making any noise. So the deer ran off into the bushes to
our right, and there was still rustling noises to our left, which quickly
stopped. We were wondering what was chasing the deer, but we kept
walking. We didn't really want to find out. As we walked, we
heard a noise like a knock or a thud (like a rock being hit on a tree,)
and we heard a branch break. The noises were still to our left, and
maybe a minute or two apart. I had the feeling like we were being
watched. We heard like a bark or a grunt, and it smelled like sewer.
When we turned east on the ATV trail, my step-son started barking back,
to see if it would do it again. It didn't. We walked about
100 ft, and to the left of the ATV trail, there was a spot in the bush
where there were broken trees leaning on each other, and the grass was
packed down, or flattened underneath. It looked like a half ass made
teepee, but you could almost not see it. There was also like an old
broken white bucket by the shelter type thing.
Info: Rabbit fur on
the ATV trail.
Activities of Witness: We were spending time outdoors. Enjoying the nice weather, doing family things, fun things with the kids.
of Creature: We couldn't see the
creature, but we saw it's shelter, and it's dinner that escaped.
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
Yes! 10 years ago I saw an actual bigfoot, in the next town over.
I was with my friend, and they saw it too.
