A young man in north Alabama recalls his encounter with a Bigfoot while in the woods near his house. Other members of his family have also heard activity in the same area.
I recently received the following account:
"This was in the spring of 2005, when I was in my last year of high school. It was a clear, pleasantly warm April morning in north Alabama. I went outside and walked out into the woods. I was probably about 100 feet from my house. There are a lot of small and large pine trees in the area. It's very hard to move around in parts of the woods around here. I was enjoying the nice weather and when I heard a loud CRACK behind me. I thought it was my dog at first, but as I was turning I realized that he couldn't make that loud of a noise.
What I saw terrified me. I had never seen anything like it. It was at least 7 feet tall, dark, bipedal, and clearly much stronger than a human. The sun was in my eyes so I couldn't get a good look at it's face. It was moving right at me through the thick pine woods.
I have never run so fast in my life. I have never ducked and jumped so many trees that fast without tripping. I ran out to the road (50 ft) then to my driveway (35 ft) and up onto my lawn (40 ft). The whole time I could hear it snapped branches. I listened to it snap branches as it moved farther out into the woods and out of my hearing. My dog didn't go out until that afternoon.
I had never even heard of Bigfoot before. I found the BFRO website and read about Bigfoot for the first time.
In August of that same year, I was outside in my driveway. (I didn't go out in that part of the woods for another year or so.) I has shocked to hear eerily similar snapping sounds and loud shuffling from the same area where I had seen it before. Then I heard incredibly loud wood knocks. Three at a time. Then a break. Then another three. Then it stopped. Complete silence. For whatever reason I picked up the biggest stick I could find near me and whacked a tree three times with it. The sound it produced was nothing close to what I had just heard. That night I read about Bigfoot wood knocks for the first time. I had never heard of them before.
I apologize for my rambling, but I have a few more stories. My aunt and uncle and their kids live a mile or so up the road. My other aunt lives with my grandmother on the same driveway. My uncle was going out to feed to goats for the night when he heard massively large wood knocks coming from the woods, accompanied by incredibly loud breathing. He's a big guy, probably about 200 lbs. He ran back to the house and never feeds the goats at night anymore.
My last story come from my aunt and uncle. One night, their dog was acting strangely. He is a Texas heeler and is incredibly protective and will chase just about anything that comes onto his property that he doesn't recognize, including deer and other large animals. Anyway, my aunt and uncle both heard a loud snap that they say was as loud as a gunshot. My uncle took the dog and went to see if everything was alright with my other aunt and grandmother. As soon as he got out the door he swears he heard distinctly bipedal walking in the woods. He tried to get the dog to chase after it but he refused. This same dog now has to be leashed and caged because he attacked several UPS guys.
I'm not a believer. I'm a knower." MC
