Justin writes “In 1991 and we moved back to Ohio. It was a your typical warm night in August sometime. The corn was fully grown. Me, my cousin and her friend were out riding in my 66 Chevelle.
We started down the hill on county road 1281. The road dips into a shallow valley where Buck Creek runs through it. And crosses and set of railroad tracks before heading up the other side. I crossed the tracks and started up the other side. As I crested the top I noticed eye shine. Not yellow like racoon or like deer. This was different and had my attention. As I got closer I noticed a dark shape in the bushes. This is a gravel road. And I was only doing around 15 mph. These eyes where a lime green in the headlights.
I got within 40 yards of this shape. And that’s when it stood up. Black muscular and had a salt and pepper V of hair on its chest. It casually stepped through the bush and walked down the edge of the corn field at us. It got with in 20 yards and went into the corn. Now when it went into the corn, it side stepped into the corn. And as it did it gave me a look of don’t mess with me. He stood about 2 feet above the corn as it disappeared into the field. He was between 7 ½ 8’ tall. I vividly remember seeing his legs disappear into the corn. Massive calve muscles hair was thin. Black about 4 inches long. The foot pad was a charcoal grey. He was wide at the shoulders.
It was like a dream, slow motion. My brain was having a hard time processing it. After it walked onto the corn. I turned to my cousin and her friend. Did you see that! Tell me you seen that!. They were already crying and my said take us home now. To this day she will not talk about it or acknowledge it even happened.
It changed my life forever. Took me 15 years to go back out there at night.
And I was shaking so bad. At the edge of the woods. I took a couple steps into it and it was like I left it all behind me. I still don’t like the woods at night. Or being out in the woods by myself.
