Ginseng Hunter Chased by Creature
Witness: Bill (last name on file)
Date: October 2002
Time: About 9:30am
Describe your encounter:
“Back in 2002 I was on the mountain hunting ginseng. It was early Oct, clear crisp morning. I was on Pine Mountain and had covered a lot of ground. All that morning I felt that something was following me. From time to time I could smell a foul scent in the air. I could hear something walking ever so often but I couldn't see anything. About four hours later I found a really nice four prone and started digging. In the thicket behind me I could hear something moving through it, and it would shake it violently and making loud grunts and low deep growls. As I stood up it got louder and charged through the brush. I turned and ran down the mountain and moving pretty fast, I came to a group of three inch thick trees that I hoped would slow it down.
I could hear those trees snapping and breaking as that thing was going through them. I could hear it right behind me which made me to push even harder to get away. I came to a drop where a logging company had cut a road below. I never slowed down, I leaped into the air and it seemed like I dropped in slow motion. I landed on a slope and slid down into the ditch beside the road. As soon as I jumped upon the road I looked up and saw a large reddish brown head on a set of very broad shoulders. It was very muscular and had reddish brown hair all over it. It was massive. I kept running hoping it wouldn’t give chase. I did notice as I was running on the road that it did stop. However I didn't stop. I returned to the location only one other time about nine years later.”
When he finally saw the creature it was approximately 30-40 feet away.
The hair was reddish-brown and he didn't see facial features.
Shape of the head was slightly pointed or coned.
He estimated the shoulders at about 3 1/2 foot wide.
The visual sighting lasted maybe 3 to 4 seconds.
The exact spot was located between Greasy Creek and the Cumberland River.
Billy has been a long-time friend and he is very credible.

Original text message:
saw a bigfoot in Bell County Kentucky in 1994. I was camping in Cannon
Creek. I crawled out of my tent early one morning. We were the only
ones camping at the lake. It's one of those lakes where the road drives
right into the lake. We were camping on the other side so you could
throw a rock from our campsite to the other side of the road. I looked
over at the road and something was down at the water. At first I thought
it was a bear then it stood straight up like a man. It was like 7
or 8 feet tall. He paid no attention to me or our campsite. I'm assuming
he was getting a drink of water. He turned around and walked away.
I woke the other campers and told them what I had just witnessed,
but they didn't believe me.”
Phone interview on August 3, 2017:
The witness was 14 years of age at the time of the sighting. He is 39 years old now. Over the years nobody believed his story, thus he stopped sharing it. Recently he decided to Google Bigfoot sightings in KY after rehashing his sighting with his mother, so he sent us a text.
was tent camping with some cousins at the edge of Cannon Creek Lake.
Two tents were placed at the junction of the road and lake. They were
the only ones camping at this location for two nights. On the morning
of the sighting, Michael was the first one to wake up. As he crawled
out of his tent he looked through the (still smoldering) campfire and
noticed a large creature hunched down by the water. He could not tell
if it was drinking. It was large and dark brown. At first he thought
it was a bear. As Michael stood up, the creature also stood up. The
creature also turned away in the opposite direction as it stood upright.
It "very casually" walked away on two legs. It had long arms
and walked slightly hunched over. “It never looked in my direction
and walked slowly, like it didn’t care. It had dark brown, matted
hair which looked like it was wet,” explained Michael. It walked
up the road and disappeared into the treeline. The overall shape was
similar to most Bigfoots: long arms, wide shoulders and stood about
7 to 8 foot tall. However the arms did not have an exaggerated swing,
it walked slow. The entire sighting lasted less than a minute. They
did not go look for tracks and they did not leave immediately, because
his cousins did not believe him.
