I got the following report via Facebook Messenger. The person wishes to remain anonymous, so for this report we will just call him Pete.

This report comes from the Black Mountain area in Harlan county Kentucky. Black Mountain is an excellent area for Bigfoot and is home to numerous Bigfoot reports.

Black Mountain is the highest mountain peak in the Commonwealth of Kentucky with a summit elevation of 4,145 feet  above mean sea level and a top-to-bottom height of over 2,500 feet.

Here is the report:

- Start Report -

Name: Pete (Real name on file)
State: Kentucky
County: Harlan
Date:  9/2012

Describe encounter in detail:

It was in Harlan co KY. on Black mountain.

I like Ginseng hunting as a hobby. Spending hundreds of hours in my life doing so.   

I am use to bear, foxes and bobcat at times will follow you to see if a person throws something down they could eat.

I was Ginsenging and heard an animal following me. It was staying a typical 50 to 75 yard behind me. No big deal.

It followed me a little longer than normal.

So, I went up a rock ridge out of sight to get a look at whatever it was.
I seen nothing.

As I came back off the ridge the knocking began. To be honest, I thought it might be a pot grower.
I put 3/4 of a mile between me and the knocking which had stopped. I turned down a ridge and jump up some rough grouse.

The knocking began again.

I know of nothing that could hear or see that from that distance.

Each time it was 3 to 5 knocks. It makes me think it had to had a thumb, whatever it was.

First a thanks goes to Pete for telling us about his wood knock encounter, so thank you Pete.
Even though Pete did not have a visual sighting of what was making the wood knocks, it seems the Bigfoot was following him. All of us who have done Bigfoot research understand that yes indeed Bigfoot will follow or pace you.  Wood knocks also have a definite feel to them and anyone who is outdoors very much would understand it was something out of the ordinary. Wood knocks are also thought to be a known behavior of Bigfoot.

Now, I have also had several encounters while hunting ginseng. I have also found numerous stick formations and tracks while out hunting ginseng.

Here is a few links to a few more ginseng hunting Bigfoot reports.
