Possible Bigfoot Encounter in Northampton County, PA

“I live in Northampton County, Pennsylvania. I was walking on the opening day of spring turkey 2015, 3:30 AM, and bumped some deer bedding down off the main trail across from a field. I saw 4 to 5 white tails jumping away and snort/wheezing about 25 yards in front of me, off to my left. I was a little startled. I wasn’t expecting to bump deer bedding down so close to the trail. Well, as I’m standing, watching the deer go off, I heard distinct heavy foot bi-pedal foot falls in the field off to my right going away from me towards the wood line. I can’t remember how many, maybe 5 or 6, but they were heavy and I could hear the thudding as they went. It was like a truck was going through the trees and it sounded like it turned diagonally, to its left while going up the mountain.

I have encountered big bears up close before, in the Catskills, not in PA yet, although I’ve seen plenty of bear signs, and they never made heavy bipedal foot falls nor do they make so much loud noise crashing through the woods. Bears can get big and make some noise but not like this. Anyway, the crashing through the woods went on for under a minute but I was frozen with fear for about 5 to 10 minutes. I only had my .12 gauge with 3 turkey loads and no other firearm. I had rushed out of the house because I wanted to get to my spot early. Well finally I was able to walk to my spot and nothing else happened.

I don’t know what it was but it had to be really big. No smells, no vocalizations, and no visual. Just a little freaky. Maybe it could have been a very large bear that was creeping up on those deer. I don't know but I did hear of a hunter seeing one during this past 2017 in deer season near the same public game lands I had my experience.” AK


Huge Creature Chasing a Pack of Hogs

“I had my own experience I guess you could call it. It was at Camp Shelby, Texas. I had been driving a track recovery vehicle back from the field, taking it back to the motor pool and was late at night, between 1:00 and 3:00 in the morning and there was a pack of hogs that ran across the road in front of me. They were probably 50 to 100 yards and I had all the lights on that VTR. But just like 3 to 5 seconds behind those hogs was something huge, black and hairy looking, and on all fours! And on all fours, this thing looked taller than the vehicle, or at least over my head and me in the cockpit! But I didn’t know what the hell it was, so I floored that vehicle I was driving!!!” HH
