Additional comments
I am a highly experienced hunter/trapper, and have spent most of my life in the woods, I have seen allntypes of animals, deer, bear, etc. I have never encountered anything like this before. I had a gun with menat the time but I panicked when I saw the creature and quietly walked in the opposite direction fornaproximately 2 miles. Then I decided to go back and investigate the area where I had seen it. I did notnfind anything because it was very dry and there were alot of leaves covering the ground at the time. A yrnprior in the fall, in the same vicinity, My father and I were cutting firewood and left the tractor in thenwoods while we went to have dinner. When we returned to get the tractor, we heard an erie noise thatnseemed to follow us up to the tractor in the dark. It was aproximately 50yrds away from us the wholentime. It was breaking branches , and seemed like whatever it was, it was very heavy footed. We got to thentractor and by this time it was behind us. We never saw it. but something was out there. I asked my dadnwhat it was, He said he did not know. He wanted to get the tractor to the edge of the woods and take thencar home. I went there the following day with a high powered rifle, to look for tracks. But again it was andry day out. I did not find any evidence.
