Please describe your encounter:
My father and I were going hunting at LBL and I had already harvested a deer. So, I figured that I would just stay in the truck; due to harvesting a deer earlier I didn't want to go out in the woods really early. So my dad went into the woods after we ate breakfast and I dozed off. I woke up after about thirty minutes with my stomach hurting. I sat up and rubbed my eyes. I looked out the windshield into the graveyard ahead of me and there it was. I thought, "thank god that it's walking away from me". So I lyed back for a couple of minutes in shock of what I just saw. A moment later, I sat up and it was gone. I was pretty glad that it had disappeared.

Describe the creature with detail:
about 6"7 to 7"0 with shaggy hair that was very dark colored like a cross between brown and black. It was also walking partly slowly.

Additional Info:
nothing really accept that it was in the Jenny Ridge Graveyard and think that seems strange.

Your first name: Brad

Which county? Lyon

Estimated date? July 1999

Estimated time? 10am

What city, or nearest city? Grand Rivers

Length of time the encounter lasted: 2 minutes

How many witnesses? 1

Please describe your encounter:
I went to the edge of a small bay on Lake Barkley (near Davenport Bay) to do some fishing. I cast a lure into the water when movement across the bay caught my eye. I looked up, saw a figure in the bushes stand up, and run up the hill. I was familiar with every animal native to the LBL and this was something I had never seen before. It ran upright on two legs with the arms swinging at the sides. It ran like a human. I watched as it disappeared over the hill. A minute or so after it disappeared; I realized my lure was still floating on the water. I'd forgotten all about it. I tried to make my way around to the other bank where I had seen the figure but the brush was too thick. Over the rest of the summer I returned to the same spot several times but never saw it again.

Describe the creature with detail:
I would estimate it stood only about 6 ft. It was covered from head to foot with brown fur. There was short hair on the head. The fur didn't look shaggy or unkempt, it looked smooth and shiny. I could see the muscles moving under the fur. I didn't see the face, I only saw the backside. What was the strangest of all was that it had what can only be described as an hourglass figure. The legs and arms were long, but not overly muscular. This leads me to believe that it may have been a young female.

Please describe your encounter: Me, my cousin, and two girls were riding bikes on the hillman ferry campground bike trails. we stopped at a rest site where there was a bench or two cut out in the woods beside the paved trail. shortly afterwards there was a huge crashing sound on the ground about 15-20 feet away in the blinding thicket! everyone jumped like the world was ending,got on our bikes and raced around the corner over the creek bridge,i stopped,they kept going. I turned around and slowly rode back over the bridge,around the corner,and sadly, i could not see anything. i will never forget the sound. may sound stupid, but to me it sounded like a car being dropped to the ground ! maybe they will see this and want to tell their side.

Describe the creature with detail:
didn't see it, sorry

Additional Info: Loudest sound out of thin air ive ever heard. maybe the other three smelled something, i dont recall. i could drive after 1981,therefore i didn't take a bike camping anymore.
