Witness Observation

I went squirrel hunting a half mile into the woods. I thought all morning that I could feel something watching me. I began to hear the sounds of something big and strong on the move, something just out of sight, the sound of breaking limbs, shaking trees. Through a gap in the leafy cover near the ground, I saw the hairy, reddish-brown legs of an animal that appeared to be walking upright.

I got the heck out of there and I haven't been back. I've got a reputation for being a real good hunter. For a long time, I didn't tell anybody and when I did tell people, everybody made fun of me, so I haven't said too much else about it.

Too many other people have seen it. A lot of coon hunters have been talking.

Sounds

Time and Conditions
