Please describe your encounter:

“I was in my cabin and decided to sit on the back deck looking into a wooded area that I put salt blocks out for deer near my pond. I heard there was a nice 10 point whitetail buck that was roaming around my place and thought I may get a glimpse of him. I sat down and was watching the woods when out of the corner of my eyes was a large object coming from the left of my property. I stayed still thinking it may be a bear since there have been a few sighted close by. I then seen it was upright and had the block and kept on going without any hesitation through the woods. These are dense woods and now that I think about it, I am wondering if the noises that I have heard thinking they were coyote haven’t been bigfoot screams at night. I have never seen any prints nor did it leave any today but I wish I had a camera at the time.”

Describe the creature with detail:

Follow-Up: 12-3-14

I called the witness and spoke with him for about 30 minutes. He seemed to be very credible. He is 46 years old and is an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He has been hunting since he was 10. On October 12, 2014 around 3:00pm on a cloudy day, he was setting on his deck looking back towards the woods where he has a salt block for deer. He then saw an object coming from the left of his property. When he first saw it, he thought it was a bear since some have been spotted nearby. He then saw it was standing upright and was walking along the edge of the woods following a deer trail. It took about 15 steps and then drifted off into the woods back into a holler. He doesn’t think that the creature saw him. He estimated it to be 40 to 50 yards away. He described the creature as being around 7 foot tall and the color was like a burnt orange color. He said it was a little lighter than dark brown but a little darker that tan. The hair was not short but had flow to it. He said the width of the shoulders was around 4 feet. The length of the arms was longer than most people, maybe 3 ½ to 4 feet long. The legs were really bulky. He could see lots of definition in calves, quads and hamstrings. It had an arch in the shoulders and the body did not bounce up and down as it walked. He did not get a look at the feet. He only saw the side of the face, could not see any features of the face or any hair on it. He noted that the face was kind of dark. The head was ape-like shaped and was thicker than a primate head. He did not notice any kind of smell. This is a getaway cabin for the witness, which is on 6 acres, that is surrounded by 2,000 acres of forest. He would like for us to come out and do an investigation. This is the witness’s second sighting. The other was in Portsmouth, OH. He has believed in Bigfoot since a very young age. He did a school report on Bigfoot in 6th grade.

    I agree I am from Lexington and I had an encounter at the edge of Daniel Boone state park in either 84 or 85 it scared the crap out of me and my girlfriend.

    Kudos to Wes for sourcing his blog materials now. It may seem like an “anal” thing as one person wrote, but it it’s just a good practice and it shows your honesty.
