Witness Observation

I had been out hunting and started back to the pickup since it was getting dark. I was following the railroad tracks when I heard something walking behind me. Thinking it was a bear, I stopped and looked back to the west and noticed it was walking on 2 legs, moving back into the woods. After a minute or so, I started walking to the east again, a little faster now. I had gone about 50 yards when it started throwing rocks at me. By now I was getting spooked and broke into a run. It was keeping up with me moving through thick vines and briars and I was on the tracks. When I made it back to the truck, I got in and sat there a few minutes. I didn't see it any more so I drove on home.

The thing looked like a very large human, but had fur like a bear. It was about 7 feet tall with a long torso and long arms. It was a dark color but hard to tell for sure looking back into the sunset.

Physical Evidence

I didn't go back and look for footprints, the ground is swampy and full of vines and briars.

Sounds

It just made a grunting sound, like a hog but much deeper and louder. There are some big cats around, wolves and bear, so I always figured the sounds came from those animals, but now I'm not so sure.

Additional Observations

There was a smell like a dead cow. Very strong but it didn't last very long, sort of drifted by me.

There was an old man that lived by the lake. He had shot one of them and they kept coming back and throwing rocks and sticks at his house. They found the old man dead one day, from a heart attack. Some of the loggers up here tell some pretty strange stories about creatures in the woods around here.

Time and Conditions

7:00 am - Getting dark.
