Bigfoot Report from Trigg County
I got this report in a few days ago and I wanted to share it. It has taken me a little time to get to it as I have been really busy. What is really interesting is that this is near the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.  A famous locations with a storied history of unusual events.

Here is the report.

Describe sighting in detail:
I was fishing with my wife, 16 yr old daughter, 5 yr old daughter and infant daughter on Sunday May 10th. The day prior, we had spent a wonderful day on the lake where we beached the boat on a large open gravel bar where we were able to fish, swim and relax. This was the first time my wife and infant daughter had been out of the house since the pandemic started. We had such a good day on the 9th, we all wanted to do it again. The wind had other plans for us however and the lake was too rough for us to get out on. Wanting to find some type of option, I took my family to a secluded spot I knew would not be totally wind swept. After a drive down a 2 mile long gravel road - which is the only access in and out of this location, we discovered we were the only one utilizing this access - which I expected as it is fairly remote.
Regrettably, we were not able to find a place on the bank where we could all get out and enjoy ourselves. We did however find a small spot where I was able to build a fire and cook some hotdogs. My 16 year old daughter got out of the boat and fished a bit, the rest of my family stayed in the boat, which was beached and tied to a small tree. The area we were in consisted of a small area of rock and gravel, a 3-4 ft cut bank where the water levels fluctuated and then a wooded hillside which crested about 100 ft up to the ridge. As I started cooking, I heard what I thought was walking in the woods by multiple people. As I had my back to the hill, I asked my wife and oldest daughter to keep an eye out. There were no hiking trails in this area and while it is not totally devoid of human traffic - it was odd to me in my 20 years of experience in the area that people would be walking up there. We ate our hotdogs and at one point my oldest daughter asked - " do you still hear those people?" I replied I did not and we all decided to push out and maybe fish a bit on the way back to the truck and just call it a day. As I was about to push us off, we all heard a knock. 
We all looked at each other and my 16 year old asked " What was that Dad?" I jokingly stated it was probably some kids messing with us BUT they say Bigfoot did that. Even though I had been interested enough in Bigfoot to watch the TV shows about it, I had also been in the woods my whole life, had never seen anything that would lead me to believe in Bigfoot and I considered myself a skeptic. In the spirit of being funny, I just looked down, picked up a stick and knocked back on the tree the boat had been tied to. Immediately, we heard another knock from o more than 100 yds down the bank in the opposite direction from the first knock. This caused some surprise but I was still convinced we were being messed with by people. We did however choose to move slowly down the bank in the boat instead of blasting off to another fishing spot. Approximately 50 yds down the bank into a small inlet, as I was scanning the hillside, I noticed a place in the trees where the sun was blasting down through the canopy and in that spot, stood a reddish brown, 7-9 ft tall, very broad chested hairy creature. We locked eyes for a split second - the eyes were deep and inset, hooded nose, hairless area where the forehead, cheeks and mouth were clearly visible - and after that split second where I questioned to myself " am I really seeing this" I yelled and pointed - " Holy *@$%, there is Bigfoot. " I am convinced now had I been quite it would have stayed still, but after I yelled it moved in behind a tree.
By this time, the boat was very close to the bank and the rocks and logs that can destroy a prop, so I moved the boat out and spun it so my wife and oldest daughter could see. My 5 year old was rattled by the excitement and laid down in the bottom of the boat. As I was spinning around, it moved away from the boat a short distance up the ridge, BUT, as I was basically spinning the boat in a circle, it was confused and then seemed to turn back toward the direction of the first knock, DOWN the ridge. It was absolutely trying to move away from our direction of travel. I was able to get a good glimpse of it as it was pulling itself out of a creek bed at the bottom of the ridge and then up the next hill. It was the fastest thing I have ever seen moving on land and in the woods. My wife and daughter were never able to pick up exactly where it was but as it moved up the hill, several small trees were shaking wildly, my oldest daughter was able to witness this. We took a moment to gather ourselves and the boat drifted down the bank. My life long passion for fishing took over and I actually suggested just going to the other side of the lake and fishing a bit so we could collect ourselves before we went home. My wife was really shaken by this but agreed - just to simply get out of the area and as I was fixing to hit the throttle on the boat, both my wife and 16 yr old looked at each other shocked. At the same time they asked each other " was that a growl" ? They both heard what they described as a guttural, frustrated, high growl or scream. That ended any chance of fishing and we went home. I spent the evening researching and trying to figure out how to come to grips with what had happened.
I did contact Charlie Raymond of the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization and he responded to me around midnight. He was able to get down some months later and investigate the sighting, those results are posted on his youtube page -

Since then I have become very interested in figuring out what exactly is out there, how they are existing in this area and how I need to adjust my world view to continue to co-habitate with them in the woods. I have since had additional experiences and documented numerous tracks, knocks, screams, whistles, claps and possible structures in addition to having one more sighting at a range of about 150 yds.
