Describe sighting in detail:

Had just got to sleep after chasing a coon away from camp, camp pharaoh. I heard a howl but not like a coyote, then 2 whoops about 10 to 15 seconds later. I tried to get my phone turned on but heard it no more.

The sounds came from the valley below somewhere.This was in the garden of the god's area. I am not sure what it was as I am an avid hunter and used to run trap lines and never heard those sounds accept on TV. I have heard bobcats, coyotes ,and even wounded deer. I really can't say what it was but different and my nephew took a leak and stayed close to the tent with me close by.

- End Report -

I was checking out some information about this area and there was a report back in 2007 of a man doing cougar research when he was interrupted by wood knocks. He described the knocks as "aggressive and loud". This 2007 report was followed up on by the BFRO. This is the same county as this current report of howls and whoops.  According to the BFRO website, there has been 270 report encounters from the state of Illinois.

This current report and the 2007 report are near the "Garden of the Gods Wilderness" area and also The Shawnee National Forest.

A big thanks to Bruce for sending in his report. If anyone else has encountered a possible Bigfoot in or around this area, then please contact us.
