Describe sighting in detail:
I was deer scouting, gun season nearing, was in a hollow called Dark hollow, coming off the top of ridge, what is known as Pine Ridge, at the end of an old logging/mining road. Just as I was about to step off the embankment to the logging/mining road, I hear a loud Woosshhh, so loud, I'm sure my eyes crossed and short moments later woosshhh, so I yelled loud as I could, wanting to warn whatever it was, that I was there, so thinking it possibly might be a bear, elk or big cat I shot a round from a 30/30,trying to show it along its merry way, and again, woosshhhh. I shot another round, 3 times I shot into the embankment trying to warn it that I wasn't there to play. And I fumbled my cell phone about to call my brother, try to get him to drive up to closely where I was and try to scare it away, which he was trick or treating with his daughter and couldn't. So I had to man-up and get to my vehicle on my own, legs shaking I backed away from the direction the woosshhing sound was coming from, I kept the embankment between me and the creature and looked back about 50 yards with blurry, watery eyes and seen the thing just standing there, upon arriving to my vehicle. Never will forget that day, was also getting foggy and misting rain.

Describe the creature -
I only seen that it was darkish brown and approx 6 to 7 feet in height, this was roughly 50 to 60 some yards away, about 35 minutes till dark. About 4 hundred pounds of weight. No special features, what I mean is no muscular or bodily features.
And seriously, between the fear from its sound, my eyes were really watering, not crying but as in nerve damage from the fear.
The sound was like the "wo" sound wolf and followed by the long "shhh" sound, like shhhhh and fadeing. woosshhhh.
Have you been back there?
