I met the witness in person on July 24, 2018. He was very sincere,
intelligent and credible in my opinion. After listening to his encounter,
he presented me with a map of his sighting.
The witness was 31 years old at the time. It was a calm, clear evening
with a full moon. He was in his tree stand when a fox ran directly
under his stand. Soon after the fox, Phillip climbed down from his
stand and quietly walked through woods. He wanted to check a nearby
soybean field for deer. As he slowly and carefully emerged from the
treeline into the field, to his immediate right at only 10-12 yards
was an 8 foot massive, hairy creature. It was covered with medium-length
black hair, wide shoulders and long arms. Phillip could see the moonlight
between its arms and body, also between its legs. Unfortunately he
could not see details of the face due to the position of the moon.
The head was more round at the top, with no neck. The creature did
not move and didn't make a sound. Without hesitation Phillip calmly
walked straight across the field to his jeep which was about 100-150
yards away. He said he did not feel nervous, nor threaten by the creature,
just an innate instinct perhaps to leave immediately and walk at a
normal pace away from the area. On another occasion, in the woods
located at the bottom of the map, Phillips discovered huge, human-shaped
feces with hair. Some of the feces were old and dry, but when he found
a wet, fresh pile, he felt nervous and left immediately.

Lyle (full name on file)
City: Lewisburg (Hollow Bell)
Date: July 1991
Time: Between 8:30 and 9:30pm
On February 2, 2016 the witness was interviewed over the phone. Lyle
is 64 years old and a retired nurse. I found him highly credible.
Lyle’s father was visiting from Ohio and they went out to dinner.
They returned home about an hour after dark, around 8:30pm. As they
pulled into the driveway and exited the vehicle, they heard an extremely
loud reverberating “shriek." Initially the unnerving shriek
sounded like it was coming from every direction. The witnesses’
property was in a hollow surrounded by knobs. When the vocalization
occurred for the second time, they could tell it was coming from the
back of the property.
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
The witness has agreed to video tape his testimony and submit it. He
mention since his encounter, he spoke to an ole timer who mentioned
that what he had encountered was “The Critter,” which many
locals had nicknamed the creature.

Homeowner Has Possible Bigfoot Encounter
On March 1, 2015 the witness, Nick Bryan, observed a tall, wide silhouette
of a creature around 1:30am on his property. The next day he finds a
trackway of large 16" footprints which approached his front window.
The prints were in a straight line with a 6' stride. Location: Russellville,
Phone Interview: 1-5-2014

Philip contacted us after seeing our recent article in the Daily News.
He is a 72 year old retired Systems Engineer. On a very clear moonlit
evening, Philip had climbed down from his tree stand after a day of
bow hunting and headed down a path approximately 25 yards through the
woods to a soybean field. As he entered the bean field, at his 3:00
o’clock position, he noticed a dark silhouette of a massive figure.
It was only 20 feet from him! Philip pretended like he didn't see it
and kept walking at fast pace, all the while keeping his eye on it.
The moon was directly behind it so he could not see its face. It had
really long arms, very broad shoulders, no neck, a thick build and he
could even see its fingers. He said, “It looked like the image
on our website except much thicker, like a gorilla with a smaller waist
and longer arms.” The head was not pointed like most people describe.
Philip is 6 foot tall and he estimated the creature at about a foot
taller than himself putting its height at around 7 foot. It made no
sounds or movement. When he initially entered the bean field he could
see the silhouette clearly due to the moon behind it, however as he
walked past and beyond it, then it blended in with the tree line.
Just prior to leaving the tree stand, Philip observed a fox which ran
under his tree stand away from the bean field. The next day, Philip
returned with a high powered rifle to look for footprints. He did not
find any footprints due to the hard ground and a grassy area next to
the bean field where it was standing. When I asked him how come he didn't
stop when he first saw it, he explained, “it caught me totally
off guard and there was nothing I could have done anyway because it
was so close. I just kept my eye on it and kept walking at a fast pace
across the bean field towards my jeep." To this day it still gives
him chills to think about it. He explained to me the whole situation
is surreal and it still seems like a dream.
