I have Had two sightings years ago. One was in 2005 at night while calling coyotes and the other was in 2014 in broad daylight in the mountains of VA while cutting timber in a very remote area. This after noon while bow hunting here in Surry County NC i had something strange happen. After setting in the stand for a hour or so i started to hear heavy footsteps. At first i got excited thinking that it may be a mature buck, especially as heavy as it sounded. After 30 minutes or so i realized that it wasn’t a deer. The sound moved around me and in front of my stand. I then heard two very loud wood knocks, almost like someone hitting a oak tree with a baseball bat as hard as they could. After that every thing went silent. I have thought about emailing Wes about my earlier sightings that took place years ago.
