Tonight I will be speaking to Frank and Frank grew up in the woods. His family had encounters with these creatures going back to the 1950’s.
Frank contacted me, he has agreed to come on the show and writes “Wes my name is Frank, I live in mid-Tennessee. I have had a lot of encounters me an my family, call when you can.” I spoke to Frank in great detail about his encounters growing up. He had two visual encounters and talks about encounters his family has had. Frank talks about being followed in the woods for several miles and feeling like he was going to be killed.
Frank said “We had a small wood stove and me and my brothers spent many days collecting firewood. After we had the encounter and saw what we saw. We spent days going deeper and deeper into the woods and getting more and more firewood.
We got up one morning and there was a huge pile of firewood and broken branches next to the house. We were all confused….so many things happened on that property and around that property…I don’t know”
I will be interviewing Jami, he writes “Wes, I feel like it’s time to share my encounter as ️maybe one of your listeners will relate or have a similar experience.
My experience happened in late August/early September at dusk. I guess I should start by saying my father lived with us during his bone cancer and strangely relates to him in a way I’d never expect.
So this experience happened several months after my father passed away but I’ll share how this all comes into play later after dissecting it over and over in my mind that day. On that particular day I remember entering a turkey trail and looking up at the sky and saying a prayer to My dad, to God for a sign. Forgetting all about that we hiked the trail and made it to a creek that feeds into a lake called, “Shenango”. My wife was photographing mushrooms, flowers and nature. I noticed our beagle harley acting odd as she was whining, shaking and wanted picked up. I guess it was my thought she’d been stung with a bee or stepped on a thorn. I picked her up and no sooner had I picked her up, we heard a vocalization.
Jenny and I stood motionless in shock just listening. We communicated with our eyes only as I think we just couldn’t speak at that moment. The noise was as I think ️back something of prehistoric nature, primate like but also louder than anything I’ve ever been so close to. We actually watched a puddle in front of us ripple and a vibration inside our bodies. I’m not sure how or why but the vocalization became more of a warning type nature. We watched trees about 75 feet in front of us shake and thud. Jenny and I made a silent agreement to just leave. As we turned to leave still carrying my dog, it made a loud lung filled aff wuff aff type of sound.
Almost like it was prompting us to leave. We headed back up the trail and the entire time we felt it almost on both sides of us and it felt like more than one. I briefly turned and saw only shape and mass, no detail. Jenny and I made it back to our truck and still the entire way home didn’t speak. When we got home we started researching animal sounds, nothing matched so we entered Bigfoot vocalization.
The very first entry was a recording called,”the Ohio howl”. As we listened we realized it was exactly what we heard and after researching the recording found out it was recorded in Wellsville, Ohio only 40 miles from where we had our experience and it was recorded by Matt Moneymaker as we found out is from a show called Finding Bigfoot.
For weeks I would dissect this encounter over and over in my mind, every nuisance and it hit me one day on my way to work. I was driving my truck and I retraced that day of my encounter and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I remember my dad saying if you lose something go back to the beginning. So the beginning for me was entering the trail that day. I remembered saying a prayer/thought to my dad for a sign. This is where it gets very strange for me because one of the last memories for me of my dad was weeks before his death he asked me to take him outside in the deck to listen to the birds and look at the trees and then he said he was done and wanted me to take him back in the house.
I then asked him if he wanted to watch a movie so he chose a movie from a stack of movies my sister from Maryland gave him. He chose a movie and I put it in the DVD player. I remember watching him watch the movie thinking it could be the last time watching him smile and laugh as his Cancer was getting worse. It hit me that the very last movie my dad watched was, ” Harry and the Hendersons”. A bigfoot movie. If my dad wanted to get my attention in any way, it would have to be big. I realize now this experience is in no way coincidence. The experience then takes on a new layer for me and only gets weirder at this point. This is when my life changed more even after this huge experience. Jenny and I took our friend Roger back to the exact location to show him where we had this encounter. We showed him and started hiking out. Getting closer to our vehicles we heard what sounded like a dog bark, man mumbling and a whistle. Jenny got the dogs as we had both on this day. Nothing came out of the wood line so Roger and I went to the ravine edge to see what made the noise. We watched something very large covered in hair rise up and bolt in the opposite direction away from us. So for me this thing became very physical but it also had this strange connection to my father who had passed away.
This whole experience has changed my life in ways I can’t explain and I’m on what I call a journey for answers which has taken me in some really amazing places. My research has taken on a life of its own and the things Jenny and I have found is and I say this because I see other peoples research, very different. We have recordings, prints and tree branches twisted out of the trees. Shelters, nest like and things that really make you stop and think, is this thing something more…”
