Was It A Bigfoot whistle?

I got an email from our friend JM. He has had several interesting things happen around his home that may or may not be bigfoot related.

In the email, JM offered a spring and summer update to what has been going on around his residents.

Here is the email.

"Hi Tom,

I thought I would drop you a note of the latest activities we have had during the spring and summer.  My wife, still a non-believer, likes to kennel her dogs up around 10:30-10:45pm and then go out and sit on the front porch and listen to the sounds of the woods in the evenings before bedtime.  A couple of times she has come in and said I hear something whistling in the hole between the house and her Mom's house and she will say it's a new sound I haven't heard before.  I started playing possible sounds on my phone of animal that could make a whistling sound in Kentucky and it was no, no, no and then I played a bigfoot whistle someone had recorded and didn't tell her and she said that's it!  I said well according to the person who put this out there it is a booger whistle. She was quiet and then said, well I don't know what it was but that was the sound I heard.  It is the same place that my son heard the Samuri chatter back in December.  

My wife also will come in at various times and say it's weird out there tonight?  How so I will ask her and she says it's just dead quiet, no frogs, no crickets, nothing but eerie silence.  This happens a few times a month based on her comments.  At times she will open the bedroom window and we will both listen and it's just dead quiet.  The other night her Mom had a niece spend the night with her and she has a dog and they decided to take her out to use the bathroom on a leash and she's a large golden-doodle and when the door opened, she dragged the niece nearly into the ground barking and growling at something just inside the wood line.  It took the niece and my wife's Mom both to pull her back from that area and to another part of the yard.  My wife's dogs were out and joined in the barking but wouldn't pass through the wireless barrier we have for them.  My mother-in-law commented that whatever it was it didn't move, she was listening for steps and branches breaking and leaves crunching as it walked or ran away, she said I was listening for a deer or bear to walk off.  She's hunted and lived there for nearly 40 yrs.  She also commented that it was absolutely dead silent, no sounds whatsoever.  I told her usually that means a predator is nearby.  She said I fully expected a person to start walking in that area but heard nothing.  I thought to myself, frogs and crickets and other critters don't go silent completely with a human in the area, nor do they do so with a bear or big cat.  My mother-in-law will have no part of boogers being real so I didn't say anything.  I later talked to my wife and she said I know that silence sound and it's creepy and she also said the bugs don't go silent with people around.  I asked her well we've had bears and other predators in the yard and never heard this silence and she said yes, then I asked what was it?  She said "I am not saying it was a bigfoot but it's some type of unknown animal".  Okay...

Oh, one other thing, my brother and son-in-law like to fish Fern Lake in Middlesboro and the last time they were up there about a month ago at dusk they were in the head of the lake and heard owls start calling.  In the process they noticed a couple of them didn't have that trill sound at the end which they thought was strange, then they heard one start a call and then it devolved into the way they described it as monkey chatter.  They looked on the internet and found where owls will sometimes make a similar sound so they are like, well that was strange.  A year or two ago they were up there and I was with them on one occasion and it was dusk and we saw what was an orange light on the bank across the lake.  We heard no ATV's or walking just an orange light about 6-7 ft in the trees on the bank and both times it was in the same area.  We never could figure that one out.  This last week my brother and SIL were fishing and it was 6-7 in the evening and no one else was on the lake and they were nearing the head of the lake and they heard, well a siren goes off in the woods that was loud and long and ended with a weird one hoot like an owl.  Then they heard walking back in the woods and withing 5 minutes 3 tree knocks and then nothing else the rest of the evening, it was normal.

This last one happened in 2021.  I went fishing with a police officer I am friends with at Fern Lake and we had no unusual activity and were headed down the lake hill road which is rough and winding and curvy.  It was just about dark and we were getting near a cutback curve but there are houses around it and something walked across the road in front of the truck from the left to the right.  It was about 2-3 foot tall; it was grayish white and TWO legged and it had no hair we could see.  It walked by and we drove by where it entered cover and I looked out my window to try and see it and it was gone and after about ten seconds of stunned silence I said, did you see that?  He said yes, what was it and I said I have no clue but hurry up and get around the curve in case it comes out on the road again, but we slowed down and didn't see it where it should have come out.  We both were at a loss to explain it's looks but it being on two legs is what threw us for a loop. I know this sounds crazy but the closest thing we can come up with looking like is a grayish Yoda with the mange.

Well, that is all for now,


Thanks for the update JM, and I keep trying to tell people that there is more "weird" things out in the woods than just bigfoot.
