Friend Not Foe
Witness: James (last name on file)
Location: Private property.
Date: Fall 2009
Time: Just after dusk.
The witness called this morning (6-5-2019) after hearing Don Neal and Don Adkins (fellow researchers) on a local radio station mention Bigfoot reports in the area. James, the witness, is 80 years old. He began the conversation by explaining to me that there have been dozens of sightings by other witnesses in the area over the years.
His encounter happened one evening while James was tending to his strawberry patch in his backyard. He “felt” someone standing in the shadows on the other side of the fence so he called out to it, “It’s Ok, you can come closer if you want? I won’t hurt you.” After calling out to it a few times in a peaceful voice, James laid down his rake, thinking the rake may have been scaring it. The creature then stepped over the fence and slowly walked out of the shadows. It stood only about ten feet in front of James. James is 6 foot tall and the ground sloped down to the creature. “We stood eye-eye, so I’d say it was about 9 foot tall,” explained James. It was VERY muscular with grey hair. It had a conical shaped head, with long hair on the sides and the hair almost looks cut across the brow ridge. It was large, slightly slanted eyes, solid black with a red shine to them at times from the light (a security light behind James, on the house). The nose was wide, hooded and flat. It had a large mouth with thick lips. The skin sorta matched the hair in color. “It looked more human, than ape,” explained James. It never made a sound or movement, however it did stink, like rotting flesh. James does not remember the sex of the creature when asked, because he remembered it as too hairy. After about a minute of staring at each other, James turned and walked back up to the house. He looked back and the creature was walking away, towards the back of the greenhouse on his property. A few minutes later James laid some potatoes from his garden on the back rail of his porch. He checked them before he went to bed and they were gone.
of the encounters James mentioned occurred about 45 years ago. A man
was laying in his bed one evening and saw a Bigfoot face look in his
window, so he shot it with a double barrel shotgun. There was blood
all over his porch. The following night, something randsacked his
walkout basement (another possible Bigfoot)?

Hunter's Close Encounter
Phillip (full name on file)
Lyle (full name on file)
father suggested they hurry inside the house. Lyle grabbed a shotgun
and flashlight and went to the backyard to confront whatever or whoever
made the sound. At one point he thought it might be a person playing
a prank on them. He wanted to confront them if that was the case. He
slowly and quietly crept up the hill behind his house without turning
his flashlight on. As he entered the forest he heard a twig snap in
front of him! When he flicked on his flashlight and pointed it in the
direction of the twig snap, a very large upright creature ran off through
the woods. It was about 40 feet away from him, covered in black or dark
hair and “it was definitely not a bear or a person,” explained
Lyle. It was running away on two legs without any doubt. Lyle only saw
the back of it for a few seconds. It could be heard breaking branches
as it retreated deeper into the forest. He does remember the horrible
smell that it left, it was indescribable. Being a retired nurse, he
had dressed many wounds and encountered discussing smells, but nothing
compared to this stench. It had a unique order all of its own. “It’s
hard to put a finger on the exact smell. A skunk smells good compared
to this,” recalled Lyle. He did not shoot at it; instead he thought
it was best to return to the house. The next morning he went to the
location with his shotgun. The ground was disturbed, but no obvious
tracks. He did notice a path of small broken branches about eight feet
