NATIVE AMERICAN 'WAR DRUMS' Heard by Western Pennsylvania Hikers

A western Pennsylvania resident and his girlfriend were geocaching in a PA State Game Land. As they were hiking through the woods, they both began to hear unexplained rhythmic drumming.

I received the following account from Kyle & Cam at Expanded Perspectives.

"I've got an incident of hearing drumming in the woods. To this day, one of the oddest occurrences I've ever experienced. In the summer of 2014, my girlfriend at the time and I decided to go Geocaching. I had gone out a few times before with friends and really enjoyed it. She was new to the whole concept. So I looked up a geocache close by, logged the coordinates into my GPS, and off we went.

This geocache took us out into the State Game Lands in Western Pennsylvania. So we parked in a designated parking lot and began our hike into the woods. It was the afternoon of a hot and humid Pennsylvania day and the location was only supposed to be about half a mile from the car. 

As we are following the GPS down a clearing with woods about 100 feet to either side of us we began to hear drumming to our left. Kind of far off but it still seemed like we should be able to see the origin of the sound. I asked if she heard it too, which thankfully she did. We both thought it was pretty strange but after about 10 seconds it faded out and we began our search again.

After walking about 50 yards further, the drumming returned, louder this time. It sounded like Native American war drums. We stopped and peered into the woods, we saw absolutely nothing. The only excuse I could think of is that maybe there's a Boy Scout camp nearby, which is a flimsy explanation at best. We listened for a few seconds, then I grabbed her hand, did a 180, and power walked back through the clearing, the drums fading with every step. We didn't say anything to each other on the hike back, just got in the car and left.

As we drove down the dirt back road lined with trees, I looked for anything that could be the source of the drumming. There wasn't another living soul in the area until we reached the main highway." T

Witness notes: This https://youtu.be/u8VX2ot6xs4 is the closest match to what we heard.

NOTE: I have been made aware of a similar phenomenon reported in PA State Game Land #244 a while back. This is in Jefferson County, PA. The Iroquois Nation dominated the region in the 17th century. These were predominantly made up of, what was referred to by the settlers as the Mohawk. Their great chiefs were Cornplanter and Guyasutha. This tribe was the most numerous, powerful, and warlike of the Iroquois nation, and comprised the Indians of Northwestern Pennsylvania. Lon

In this episode of Phantoms & Monsters Radio, we present Carrie and Greg, a married couple living in Summit County, Ohio who have been dealing with a 12-year saga. Namely, there are monsters in their yard. Cryptid canines are a part of their everyday life. Join us for an intriguing look at the evolution of their ordeal...what they have experienced and what they have learned from it.

Carrie and her husband Greg moved into their Summit County, Ohio home in 2003. Greg is an Executive Chef and Carrie is a School Nutrition Specialist. They have three children and a ten-year-old granddaughter. They are avid outdoor enthusiasts and spend as much time as possible camping, scuba diving, and hiking with their two dogs Liberty and Ripley. Their experience with the canine cryptids began in 2010. 

Early on, Carrie and Greg's son witnessed a large, dark creature over six feet tall lurking in the tree line.

The lone rooster began to squawk and the creature let out a fierce growl, then all went silent. He heard what sounded like something jumping back over the fence, and the rooster squealed as if in pain. At that point, he grabbed a gun and flashlight and ran outside, searching the fence from the front porch with his light. He saw the rooster but it appeared to have something dark over its middle. It slowly dawned on him that the “something dark” was the muzzle of a creature with two glaring eyes.

“Whatever it was,” he said, “it seemed to look through me. It turned my blood cold and I was paralyzed with fear. I’m a hunter. I’m used to being in the wilderness and encountering bigger animals. Those animals don’t scare me as this thing did. When I encountered this thing the first time, I got the feeling that it wanted to hurt me. After researching something I’ve never believed in, I’m convinced that this thing is a Dogman.”

Loud howls and the sound of something walking on two legs in the gravel driveway plagued the family for years. The family kept a detailed diary of their strange events.

The Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team was contacted in early 2022. Their ordeal has continued for almost a dozen years, and the intensity of the encounters has prompted the family to seek help. We are actively conducting a full-scale paranormal and cryptid investigation. This interview is your chance to relive this family's experience.

HUMANOIDS 'Demonic Things' Recently Seen in Red Pheasant Cree Nation, Saskatchewan (PHOTOS / VIDEO)

A bizarre series of sightings have occurred at the Red Pheasant Cree Nation (Plains Cree First Nations band government) in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

On the Facebook profile of Jeffery Meechancez, two photos of unknown humanoids have been posted. There is also a video of a humanoid walking at another location. There was also a suggestion in the comments that the elders and medicine people conduct ceremonies in order to rid themselves of these 'demonic things.' The locations of concern seem to be the community center, where the humanoid was seen on the roof, and at the local high school.

A relative, named Madeline Meechance, also stated:

"A couple years back I had a dream/vision these black demonic figures exactly what’s on this picture were descending down onto Ochiese (O'Chiese First Nation) they also had black wings and as they were descending down on Ochiese the whole reserve was covered in black fog/cloud. In my dream/vision I was terrified seeing this I ran to the family telling them and gathering family. My interpretation of this dream/vision is that too many bad things going on reserve the drugs the deaths everything that has no negative sh*t in life. Time to bring the elders and the community together to fight together to bring light and positive to the people and the home fires and our culture to fight off these demonic things as they are trying stronger by the day feeding off the people that are stuck in addictions and hurting the ones they love and families fight and amongst one another it got so powerful now that it’s showing itself in daylight now that’s the scary part and it’s no joke as these things can physically attack people now. Smudge up my family as well all in the community. I thought I’d share this as it freaked me out seeing this picture and my dream hit me to recall what my dream was I hope u hear what I write as this is very concerning and if nothing is done to fight these things I pray for my community."

BIGFOOT or SWAMP APE Vocalizations in Florida? (AUDIO / VIDEO)

This video was found on Facebook and forwarded to me. The calls and overall sounds are intriguing. Are these vocalizations from one creature or several? The location is said to be in Florida, but specific details are not given.

Could it be a Bigfoot and/or Swamp Ape? Or possibly something else? Lon

NOT DEER or SHAPESHIFTING COYOTE? Bizarre Encounter in Central Texas

A Central Texas resident is walking in the rural countryside with his dog when he suddenly encounters two large coyotes crossing the road. What occurs afterward is quite unexplained.

I recently came across the following account:

"So this happened a week or so ago, and I can’t stop thinking about it. My family has a small farmstead in more or less the middle of nowhere Central Texas, to the southeast of Austin. But very rural, all dirt roads, only a couple neighbors within a mile or so.

I usually walk with my dog in the thick woods on our property, but sometimes we walk along the dirt roads because it’s like we have them to ourselves. Maybe 5-6 cars will pass by our place on the county road in the course of a given day.

We were walking along the dirt road back home when we heard something crash in the woods off to our left. I looked closely but didn’t see anything, and just figured it was an animal or a branch falling. No big deal.

A few more steps and two coyotes burst out of the woods and cross the road right in front of us. This is weird because it’s late in the day for coyotes to be active, but more so because they look huge for coyotes, almost like wolf-size (we don’t have wolves here anymore), and one of them looks kind of hunched over like it’s hurt or it’s a bipedal animal loping along on all fours for some reason. Note (and this comes into play in a second) that I saw absolutely no antlers or anything. My dog starts to act out of character.

OK, so these big, possibly injured, coyotes run into the brush on the other side of the road. My dog and I kind of stand there for a bit, but then move on. It’s the country, and there are coyotes, whatever.

We round a corner and here comes one of the coyotes, crossing the road again, fast. It scoots under the fence and I watch it run across the pasture past some cattle, who are totally unbothered by this big predator running by them. I call my dog back to me because I know the second one is probably about to pop out and I don’t want her getting in a fight (that she’d lose).

Here’s where it gets a little weird.

Sure enough, out runs the second one, it’s the hunched-over and injured-looking one. It hits the fenceline, where there’s a bit of low scrubby brush. I wait for it to pop out on the other side and start watching to see how these cows are gonna react. But it doesn’t come out, it kind of just disappears into the tiny patch of brush, which doesn’t seem at all big or dense enough to conceal it.

We slowly move closer to the fence/brush to see if this coyote is hurt or hung up in the fence or something. All of a sudden, one of the biggest, most majestic bucks (male deer) I’ve seen around here pops out of this fence line and runs into the field. His antlers are huge, and he’s a big boy, taller and more muscular than most of our Central Texas deer.

He runs along a bit, then just turns and watches us. We got closer to the fence to see what was up with this coyote, but there was no coyote. And absolutely nowhere a coyote could’ve hid. The deer is still watching us, and I don’t know what to do so I just shout “good morning” and say something like “um, we mean you no harm”, and walked home.

So yeah. Big injured coyote kind of morphed into a big healthy buck more or less before my very eyes. I guess it was probably a deer all along, slumped down and slinking fast away from a coyote. But that’s weird because (a) I saw the coyote twice and it definitely looked like a coyote, and definitely, had no antlers, (b) a big buck isn’t going to run away from a lone coyote.

Things are crazy out here in the sticks sometimes, even in the middle of the day." A
