Artist rendering of report.
A few days ago I got in a interesting report from our local area. I know this area very well and have done quite a bit of Bigfoot hunting in this general area. There are several other reports from this area as well. I personally have found tracks and stick formation in this general vicinity.

It is my understanding that this event has never been reported until now. So, I'm very happy to document this sighting.

This report is what is referred to as a second hand report. One this is told to someone who then tells it to folks like me. Some may not like these types of reports but one should also consider the time frame in which it occurred,who handed it down and the location. Many people have no idea there are places who document sightings and that was something far less available back many years ago. It was kind of like if you did see something, who were you going to tell, type of thing. So most either told no one or only told a select few.

With that said here is the story as told to me by Charlie.

"I have a story you might be interested in.  It is not my story but it is my aunts story.  It is probably 20 years ago or maybe a little older. It happened on Smith right here on the property we still live on and I believe it was Bigfoot.

I will tell you what she told me. Just keep in mind that she had never heard of Bigfoot and bears were not common here back then.

She lived in a single wide trailer. There was an above ground pool in the backyard.  The pool was only a few feet from the base of a pretty steep hill. At the top of the hill there was a large level area.  It used to be part of my grandma's cow pasture. The hill was covered with small trees and weeds but there was an old trail going up the hill. The trail was there when I was a kid. We used it frequently when I was playing with my cousins. But to the story she told me, she had come out the back door of the trailer and was cleaning leaves out of the swimming pool.  She heard what she describes as a hoarse cough. It startled her because it sounded close and she looked in the direction she thought it came from. That's when she saw a dark figure crouched at the top of the hill where the walking trail is at that I mentioned earlier. 

She had no idea what she was looking at and was frightened. So she started making her way toward the back door but still keeping her eyes on the figure.  As she got close to the door, it stood up and turned and began walking away toward the woods. She said it was covered in dark hair and it arms were long and hanging down.  It stood on two legs and walked out of sight. She don't know how long it was crouched down on the hill watching her at the pool.

This would have been about 1988.  We live in the same place and  we always had strange things going on around here. When I was a kid, I never saw anything, but when we played up in the woods we had small rocks thrown at us but never was hit by them. I remember throwing them back in the direction they came from only to have them thrown back. It was almost like something was playing with us.

A thanks goes to Charlie for sharing this story.

Knowing the area, and seeing as how this came from one of his family members, I would say that this was a Bigfoot.

In this area there are not many homes and a whole lot of forest.
