SC EP:444 Hunter has intense encounter

A listener writes “I had a very intense encounter with an angry Sasquatch in 2007. It completely changed who I am.

For the better part of 11 years I’ve done armchair research on the subject and just recently went back into the woods. I’ve only heard one encounter that comes close to what happened to me that day, not that I think it hasn’t happened to anyone else but that it has and they’re just not coming forward like me. I’d like to tell my story and share my experience with you.”

Spoke to the witness and he said “I never believed in bigfoot, I didn’t care about the subject. If they existed it was a Pacific Northwest problem in my mind. The day I was turkey hunting in Mississippi changed my life. I saw what I thought was a black guy walking towards me. An African American family owned most of the land around that hunting lease so I assumed it was my neighbor. As this thing got closer I realized it was not a human. This thing was massive, it went nuts. It was looking at me, I saw everything. I reached for my gun and that is when it went really crazy. It knew what that gun was, no doubt in my mind and it was not happy I was reaching for it. I thought for sure I was going to die.”

    If you listen to witness accounts it’s obviously some sort of primate. From Lee shroud survivor man to several others talking about monkey sounds,chimp, baboon. What else looks somewhat like an ape and makes primate type sounds other than a primate?

    Another great show! ?? I only wish Wes had asked him, in fact, I wish it was standard to ask guests if they have seen anything else peculiar or hard to understand in the woods. I think ther are other things, in addition to Sasquatch, that people want to unload about and is keeping them awake over! . In much the same way Wes asks the standard question about “what do you think Sasquatch are?” Not that the show is build around the question of “Have you seen any peculiar or hard to understand things in the woods?” Thanks for another great show!

    My heart broke for this man when he said how many funerals in such a short time. And it reminded me of you and Woody’s encounter. I can’t imagine how tough that must’ve been. 🙁

      Hey Tyson,

      It was episode #260

      —Bill Robison

      Ps when I was looking for whigh episode this one was I thought it might be 249 which ended up being the one about the guy in a kayak who had a Sasquatch charge into the water at him… and he’s the guy who Wes used in the opening mix where he says something about ‘its eyes looked like I just want to kill you ‘ and ‘it looked human but it wasn’t’ and it’s a great episode to re-listen to too.

    A Human. THANK YOU Kerry ! You are the MAN !

    Only an Other Manner of Human.
    And isn’t it fascinating How we will find excuses for what we see that is out of Our Paradigm ? As I even KNEW of these things ! But when I seen one I dismissed it as a Very Large Gorilla. And I shuffled it to the back of my Mind because everyone Knows there is no wild Population of Gorilla’s in Northern Michigan ?

    • Kerry A

      No I don’t think there is Jay, however, nothing surprises me anymore. What I do know is there’s a wild population of humans that EVERYONE should know about.

      • Tommy

        Kerry, I totally agree with you on a couple of points: There IS a PTSD element after encountering these creatures, and it’s deliberate. There is something more to these creatures then just muscle and hair, something ‘telepathic’ is the only way I can describe it, and even that pales to explain it..No monkey I ever heard of causes that type of reaction in humans.. Great show, Thanks Wes, and thanks to your guest Kerry!..Peace Tommy

    LAST!!! WOOHOO!(jk) I don’t think I could ever respond first being from the east coast. Y’all crack me up with that being first! Great encounter, Wes! Please tell him thank you for sharing his personal encounters! Great job! Until the next… I’ll be waiting eagerly!

    Kerry,
    question for ya, You spent 7 years there, being a hunter i know the work that goes into setting up a place like that to hunt, building those blinds, setting up and checking cameras, etc.. etc…, that being said, after the encounter i am sure that it put an immediate stop to hunting there, and probably even setting foot in the woods for some time, i’m sure you were close with that family and they knew your passiom for hunting, did you tell them what happened, they had to know something bad happened for you to just stop going there, would love to know, thx.

    The old man was really sick the last few years I hunted it so I only ever came by and dropped off meat to his daughter and left. I’d hear from my friend now and then how much they appreciated it but that was it. He passed away in 2008. As far as going back to talk to anyone there about it, no way, completely out of the question. I wanted nothing to do with that area ever again. I have thought about going back recently to film but trepidation still gets the better of me. The one thing I do remember me McGee telling me that didn’t really register till later was how they couldn’t keep animals there. Someone kept stealing their dogs he said….. Yeah, and made a meal out of them I’m sure. I’ll go back eventually and shoot my own episode of Bigfoot Odyssey. I think it will help me finish the chapter than ruined me for so long and move fully into the new chapter of my life that being written because of it.

    Fathers Day can be hard for people who have lost their fathers. My father I and talked often about Sasquatch and things he experienced hunting and camping. They are some of my most cherished memories of him. Thank you Wes, for this great forum to share our life experiences with the Sasquatch phenomenon!

  9. joe r

    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it, I am retiring next November and I’m going to dedicate the rest of my life trying to film one of these creatures in high definition, so keep that in mind when you’re ready to go back there I’ll load up my new Winnebago and I’ll go out there with you, being a lifelong Deer Hunter I can appreciate just how you feel, as much as I have loved to deer hunt my whole life I can’t imagine what happened to you, it would devastate me not being able to go back out in the woods again.

      Not hunting anymore really didn’t bother me. You have to understand my whole frame of mind changed. I stopped being an introvert and started being much nicer to people, not that I was a meany, it’s more like being forced into humility. Don’t get me wrong, I was a wreck for a long time. It robbed me of my peace and the lifestyle I was use too. A lot of good came out of it but I had to make that choice. I could have felt more sorry for myself and turned more inward and I’m glad I didn’t. I don’t think my psychological state could have handled it. Getting it out and being able to be involved in the subject has been the best thing for me. You are welcome to join us on any trip we take Joe.

    Wes that was another EXCELLENT show, great guest, heart pounding encounter and interesting discussion!! I look forward to watching Kerry’s Sasquatch Odyssey. Thanks!!

    My question is , since the gov. knows these things are out there why are they running all of these ads on tv and radio trying to encourage people to take their whole families into the forrest?

    My dad thinks he just “discovered “ SasChron on his own recently! ? He just announced he was about to listen to episode 444 and put it on his new Bluetooth headphones. It’s really sweet. I’ve been sharing episodes with him for YEARS , and referencing stories from ‘Wes’s show”, and trying to get him to listen on his own. When he told me about this “great new show” that he’d “just discovered “, I was like, “Dad! That’s WES!” “OH! Is that who that is? Well, damn. He’s really good.” I just had to share that! ? He’s 76 and completely adorable, clever, curious, and hilarious. I’m lucky to have him. ❤️

    Thanks for sharing your encounter, Kerry. What an amazing story. I appreciate your ability to recall all the physical details of this creature. Very scary!

  14. wolfheathen

    I loved your clear minded and thoughtful description and opinions. Self awareness is INDEED key to the perpetuation of their isolation along with the actions of our own fearful governing bodies. Other human tribes have famously kept themselves hidden as well.

    The need for such large creatures to exaggerate their countenance I think shows how much fear they also have for us. We destroy forests and are everywhere around them.

    Kerry, I think you mentioned you were wearing a face screen? Was it on the whole time? Has to be strange for them to see one of us with no visible face.

    Thanks so much for sharing and Wes, for having Kerry on!

    Stay safe and all the best to ya!!

    • Kerry A

      I pulled it down when I stood up and heard the footsteps and I think it was still around my neck when I got home. Them being masters at hiding, he had to know exactly what I was doing with a face screen and black grease under my eyes. I really think they had a problem with me calling the turkeys to me. Doug from MBEST told me before he ever heard my story that if you want to find Sasquatch in MS, find the turkeys. That gave me a bit of a chill when he said that.

    I wonder if the family that lived there and owned the land had seen them.

    Should we be getting concerned that humans are being run off from the out doors? That makes me a bit mad. I don’t want any creature taking over our forests, our parks, our country. Doesn’t the Bible say that WE have dominion over the Earth?

    • Kerry A

      I get it and I totally despise these things but it took them 7 years to get rid of me and I believe it was for a reason. I was already taking deer out of there 3 months out of the year. Once I went after the turkeys, I think that was the straw that broke the camels back. They tried to scare me off before but I wasn’t getting the message. I went after turkeys and it got serious but they didn’t hurt me. I think they are a type of human but still wild. They want to come around us as much as a deer or other wild animal does but, piss one off and it’s a different game. Purely survival, I don’t think vengeance is in the equation.

    Kerry
    Your attention to telling us the details of your encounter painted a vivid picture in my mind.
    I believe the Sasquatch of the land accepted you as part of the land, too. I think you woke the Bigfoot from his slumber and his attitude reflected his mood.
    You, both, showed respect for each other’s situation, at the moment, and moved along.
    Your hunting on your property didn’t impact their food sources, helped them in many cases by taking your kills.
    During that seven years Bigfoot never agressively escorted you out of the forest.
    Thank you SASQUATCH CHRONICLES

    Yes! This is by far my favorite episode. Just gentlemen really explained it very well in detail. I almost thought I was there. I like going back and listening to the older episodes. But there’s something very authentic about this story.
