Three 1960's "Quickies" From Minnesota

Just for the fun of it: Three short encounters from Minnesota from the 1960s. These appeared as "fillers" in various publications and there are few details known.

In fall of 1968 in La Crescent, a man thought he heard one of his friends approaching the duck blind in which he waited. He stood up to caution the guy to be quieter. Instead of his friend, he found himself looking at the middle of a huge,black, hairy chest. He dropped his shotgun, which set off a shot and the tall hairy creature ran off screaming.

In 1968 or early 1969, Larry Hawkins, a student, while driving down Highway 52 south of Rochester, thought he saw a person crouched beside the road. Thinking they were in some kind of trouble, he pulled over to offer aid. That was when he realized the "person" was covered in hair, looked apelike and had very big shoulders. It got to its feet and ran up a steep hill into the woods, leaving behind a dead rabbit.

As Larry bent over the rabbit he could see no blood on it. Suddenly he heard a roar from the woods. Deciding it was better to leave the rabbit, he got in his car and drove away. He claimed to have reported the entire incident to the police but they refused to take him seriously.

In the fall of '68, a deer hunter claimed he was sitting on a stump in the woods about 10 miles north of Floodwood. A creature about 4 1/2 ft. tall jumped down from a tree around 125 ft. away and walked into the woods "on its back feet". At first he thought it was a child, but then realized  it was "something I had never seen before". but did not actually say what it was or if it was covered with hair.


"I'll spark the thought; what you do with it is up to you."
