Red Glowing Eyes Just Staring At Me

Josh in Alabama wrote in to Darkness Radio to tell of a Bigfoot encounter he had:

“I was born in Alabama and for the past 30 years have lived in a number of rural communities outside the Birmingham area. I spent most of my childhood roaming and exploring the woods and mountains, although I've never flat out seen a Bigfoot, I have had things happen that I look back on now and it makes me wonder. I say now because of an incident that happened to me right at the end of this last winter.

I bought a new .22 Browning pistol and was going out just about every night deep into the woods to shoot beer bottles that littered nearby trails. There were two main trails. One was an access road that ran alongside the interstate for putting up, taking down or just maintaining the billboards and the other was a really long trail that led to a clear foundation and a parking lot. That in of itself was really odd to me because of how remote it was but given all the spent shells in the area I assumed it used to be some sort of old lodge or hunting club that was torn down.

On the nights leading up to what happened, I had killed two hare and deer for sport. Shame on me, I know. I had seen countless more. The remains would always be gone the following night which I attributed to coyotes or other wild animals, even though I found it a bit strange for an entire deer carcass to disappear without a trace overnight. Well, one evening I got the feeling I was being watched. I looked in the direction from which I thought I was being watched and all I saw was what looked like two orange security lights side by side way off in the distance. So I kept walking. After only a few steps I could hear leaves crunching 30 or 40 yards off the trail in the woods and up the hillside pacing me in the same area where I felt the gaze. When I looked back in that direction, the two street lights I had seen were now clearly red glowing eyes just staring at me. I could now see a branch directly above the eyes which gave me something to tell how close or far away it was and that it looked to be about 3 and a half to 4 and a half feet tall. I assumed it was just a deer but couldn't figure out how the eyes were reflective with no light source when I pointed my flashlight away or why I could see both eyes simultaneously when you typically see one or the other at a time since deer eyes are on each side of their heads.

I started up the trail after the animal, being sure to keep an eye on him. When I turned and took a few steps, it was gone. No galloping or leaves crunching or fading away. Just a few brisk steps and then nothing. When I walked up the hill to where whatever it was had been standing, I saw the branch that looked to be 3 to 4 feet off the ground from where I was standing was closer to 11 or 12 feet off the ground. After analyzing the surroundings and the event at length I was left scratching my head because whatever I had seen was either an optical illusion which I couldn't account for or a beast I only caught a glimpse of standing no less than 8 feet tall with red glowing eyes. I was always the type to poo poo any Bigfoot stories up to that point but when it happens to you personally it's a whole other story. There was no odor associated with it which I know often accompanies these kinds of sightings.”

NOTE: I just wanted to note that most Bigfoot encounters are not associated with a foul odor. Very few reports that I and others have received mention this...more sightings in warmer climates and swampy conditions will state that an odor was present. The presence of bright or glowing 'red eyes' is a characteristic mentioned in many encounters. Regardless of the time during the night or day, this distinguishable brightness by red eyes is difficult to explain...unless a determination of 'supernatural origin' is accepted. Lon
