Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Limb Line fishing with brother and father on the Quiver River
Describe what you heard / found / saw
I was very tired of riding in the row boat checking the lines for fish so I decided to fish in the larger holenof water that we had set lines in while my brother and father went to the upper hole of water to checknthe fishing lines up there...... It was about 11:00 or so I didn't have a watch because all of the water, mudnand stuff. I was sitting on the bank fishing when the whip pore wills birds stopped singing. . . .I didn'tnthink anything about it until after I saw what I did........ this part is difficult for me to tell. I smelled anodor like rotting fruit. It was pretty over powering so I started to shine my flash light around behind mento the woods and could see nothing. Later about ten minutes late I heard water splashing and flashednmy flashlight that way and saw something that made me freeze with fear. ...... It was a large bodiedncreature with maybe 4 inch hair and it stood maybe 7 and a half feet tall it was looking at me alreadynwhen I shined the light on it because when I spotted it it was looking at me. After a while it picked up anrock from the bottom of the river the whole time staring at me. When it stood up it calmly walked awaynstopping briefly a few times to look at me.... I told my father the next day and he laughed and asked If Inwas on drugs...I only told you since then.
