Another Bigfoot Report From Mississippi
Recently it seems Mississippi has become a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings. I recently done some video work for Brian Sons of Onyx Knights Paranormal Cryptids group, on a video that he recorded of some possible bigfoot in Mississippi and on some sounds recording from the same area. (Video Here).
Just a few days ago video News report surfaced about a possible Bigfoot visiting an old school play ground in Mississippi. This news report also showed a track casting made by one of the locals.
All these reports coming from Mississippi is helping others come forward with their sighting. A couple days ago I was contacted by Don, who wanted to finally tell of his sighting from many years ago.
What follow is Don's sighting.

Don said -
"I was watching a local news program here in Madison, Ms. & they mentioned someone had an experience with the Bigfoot. So, I told my wife I would contact someone & tell
them what I saw, which I had never done.
Back in the 1960’s & 70’s I bass fished all the Ms. river lakes. One morning I was fishing to northwest end on Lake Chotard, & heard a muffled crash back in the willows. I looked up
immediately & saw this large black or dark creature, much taller than a grown man, hurrying away from me with his head turned looking at me. This has been a long time ago & I never told
anyone what I saw until much later. What I saw is firmly indelible in my head. I never did go back to Chotard, as much as I liked to fish there.
Now, this has been quite a few years ago, but I’ve told you just about everything, But I will try to add to some of the questions you’ve asked me. (Tom - I had emailed and ask some questions about the creature).
This sighting was, the best of my memory, was about mid morning morning on calm, early summer morning, no wind & I was fishing alone, as I commonly did. I hunt & fish a lot so I
have a pretty good idea the size of things in the woods, I wood say the thing was 7’ tall or more, it was about 80 to 100 yds. from me. There was no smell other the the smell of willows blooming in the swamp. But one thing that stood out, it had a big head.
It must have stepped on a limb that snapped causing me to look up, but that was the only sound it made (It’s pretty wet back in the swamp).
This sighting date is not going to be very accurate, but I would guess it was in the 60’s right after I got out of the army."

Thanks for the report Don and thanks for coming forward and telling what you saw.
I have included a general map of the area at the top of the page.
According to theses reports, It appears Bigfoot has been calling Mississippi home for a long time now. This sighting may be many years old, but it is still important in showing a history of sightings in this area.
I encourage others to come forward and report your sightings, it does not matter if it happen years ago. It still needs to be documented. There is a link at the top of the page to report sightings.
