Describe what you heard / found / saw
My two cousins and I were camping by Caster Creek and atapprox. 1 a.m. I was awakened by the sound of one of my cousins yelling. I looked around and saw a 6 to 6 1/2 foot tall ape-like creature standing beside our tent. Being dark, I could not see what color hair this creature had. However, I can tell you that it did have long arms and a massive chest area. At no time did it make any threatening move toward us. After about 30 secs. it turned to its right an walked out of sight. Being teenagers, we did not bother to wait til daylight to pack up and leave. Have not been back to that area of the creek in several years and do not plan on going back.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was in June of '84, if I am not badly mistaken. Deep in the woods off of US Hwy 171 in west-central Louisiana.
