The encounter took place in Florida. John writes “September 2020, a few friends and I decided to go camping at a piece of property that has been in my family for about 80 years.
We have been to this piece of property numerous times and never expected to see anything other than a few deer and possibly a bear. My grandfather used to tell us as kids, “Never ever under any circumstances go out after dark.” Any way getting to the point. My buddies and I got to the property early that morning, and we set up camp before going deeper into the Forrest on ATVs and Jeep’s. We were out probably until 8 or 9 that evening just riding around. Once we got back to camp we started to cook something quick for dinner.
Once that was wrapped up it was probably 11 or 12 everyone started to head to their own tents. My buddy David who had ran into the woods to use the bathroom made his way back into camp and kept looking over his right shoulder back into the Forrest. I asked him what’s up and all he would say was he didn’t feel good about this spot and was going to go home in the morning. Around an hour later we started hearing what I would say was a low hiss kinda like what an alligator would do. But this could be felt in your chest my hair was raised on end then the Tree knocks and this putrid smell kinda like rotting flesh came into our camp making me vomit it was so strong. I grabbed my spot light and started shining the light into the trees and I saw probably about 20 yards from camp this large ball of light. Then a couple more about 40 yards to the left of the first. We didn’t know what it was so we grabbed our rifles and made our way into our tents figuring what ever it was would probably make it’s way from camp once we settled down. About an hour after that we heard only what I could describe as a demonic scream.
I stepped out of my tent and turned on my spot light and Wes I’ll be honest I pissed my pants I was so scared. About 10 yards stood a family group of 4 or 5 creatures that stood about 10 feet tall the small ones were about 6 1/2 feet tall they screamed and whooped and threw rocks and it got much much worse. This is the most terrifying experience I’ve ever had and I haven’t gone back to this property since. I can’t tell you everything through email because this story would take about an hour or so to fully describe what I saw that night.”
