A listener writes “In Sept of 2015 my friend bill and I we’re going to go up to my in-laws cabin. To do you a little drinking over the weekend and a little Scouting Around for the following hunting season.
They own approximately 80 acres of prestige Wilderness and open acreage. This property is located not far from a small town called Gleason Wisconsin pretty much in Central Wisconsin. I brought my dog Nova. Bill came alone, I got there Friday around noon, Bill showed up approximately 3:00p.m. we didn’t do much the first day. Just sat around and drank some beers, ran into town had dinner came back. We then just sat on the front porch of the cabin and enjoyed nature, nothing happened was simply a beautiful evening. we retired into the cabin about 10. The Following day Sat. after breakfast, that following morning I grabbed my rifle which had a 3-point sling on it and went into the woods he was going to grab his and follow along eventually. That day we both spent most of the day tromping through the woods looking for deer signs deer tracks so we knew where to set up our stands for the following hunting season. During the early evening we seen a fox, across the field other than that we just saw a couple rabbits, couple squirrels here and there nothing in particular Nova loved running through the woods and as always. collecting wood ticks. But things were are about to change, which we do not know, we decided to cook on the grill on the outside by the fire we had dinner about 6 and nova started barking to the east where the wood line started approximately 50 to 75 feet away. we did not see anything hear anything I felt kind of uneasy.
Bill didn’t say anything about it.For some reason I felt I needed to keep Nova chained up, so I put the chain on her. so she wouldnt run off. she usually didn’t, but I just didn’t feel right something was wrong and I could not place my finger on it that evening after cooking some hamburgers and some hot dogs on the grill we called it a day and it been a long day already. As we laid in our separate beds Bill told me he had been feeling uneasy around supper time. But I did not tell him that I felt the same way, bill is kind of nervous person so I didn’t want him to freak out on me. That night we were both awakened by a large loud scream that seem to be coming right outside the front door of the cabin. I’m quite familiar with the animals here in Wisconsin. I knew it wasn’t a cougar, I know it was not a fox or a coyote. it only happened twice and then it stopped just like that. we didn’t here, anyone walk up or anything walk up or walk away for that matter. it was loud enough to wake up us both out of. A deep sleep. The following morning Sunday after breakfast it was now approximately 12 in the afternoon I just had to leave early as I usually do I grabbed my AR-15 with my sling on and Out to the Woods I went. there’s a trail to the right which would be to the west of the cabin I took that into the woods approximately 35 yards and took another deer trail that went to the South approximately 50 yards and followed the trail as it went around to the left.
I got what would be about 20 ft into the tree line and approximately straight across from the cabin, but at least 60 yards away from the cabin I was stopped in my tracks. By loud gunfire coming from the East. Shotgun and rifle firing constantly and then I heard it a loud screaming I cannot even explain what I heard. But as the shooting was going on the screaming intensified . the screaming was so loud it seemed like it was right next to me, I started walking to the East and got about 25 ft when I heard something behind me running snapping twigs and rustling up leaves, before I could even turn around something hit me on my right side and knocking me to the ground, as I got up I look to my left and saw nothing and look to the right and I saw what I can only describe as a huge black figure approximately 7 – 7 1/2 feet tall and in it’s right hand it was pulling another little (creature) all I can say is baby creature which was about three foot tall and it was trying to keep up whith the taller one. it was running in the direction of the screaming and gunshots. which were coming from the east of me.
I looked and saw that bill was out of the cabin, with his rifle and a pair of binoculars, which I found later was focused on the creature. We followed What Tracks we could to the property line. still I still have to go in for MRI. they believe I tore my rotator cup that has never healed from that day. All Bill could tell me was see I told you, I told you, I told you. there was something wrong last night that was a @&*%/!”g Bigfoot.”
