Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
I was walking around far northern minnesota right after fishing. I put my things away and decided to gonfor a walk.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
While walking I noticed a large personlike animal. It must have been around 7'8' to around or over 8'. Inwas terrified. Not knowing what to do i yelled, hey buddy need some help. There was no response, but he did start looking from side to side. So i quietly hid behind a small bush. He started walking to his side looking around curiously. Then he came closer to the bush sniffing around. He yelled out a viscous roar and started to run. I picked up my .44 magnum and shot it in the air. He gave out another viscous monsterish type roar and covered his ears. He started to run. His run was like a waddling/stomping run. Scrambling for my camera I struggled to take a photograph and he escaped. My 35mm camera was out of film so I couldn't even get a shot of the scenery. I started to look around for him and lit a road flare to see better. The footprints i saw must have been around 2 feet big. It was very cold and the flare went out so I went to my truck and left. I have told local authorities about it and they just laughed. I also told numerous friends/family and they did the same.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was mid January. Around 15 degrees farenheit. Around 12-2 A.M
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
Not that I have heard of. But I haven't researched it yet.
