'NOT DEER?' 'DEER GODS?' West Virginia Hunter Horrified By Human-Like Buck!

A young man is deer hunting on private land in West Virginia with his father and uncle. While in his stand, he observes a buck with human-like eyes. When he attempts to shoot, the craziness begins!

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

"This happened in West Virginia about ten years ago. I have done my best to stuff my memory of it deep down but I accidentally watched a video on YouTube that basically re-traumatized me. What the presenter said really freaked me out and brought up this memory and now I don't know WTF to do with it. She discussed 'deer gods' and interdimensional being encounters!

When I was 22 I went out hunting with my dad and uncle. We each had our own deer stand and blind in the private hunting ground that my uncle owned. About halfway through the morning hunt, there was this big buck that strode into my view, but he didn't look quite right. Not in a sick or mentally ill way. His eyes were more...human-like? The eyes looked like they contained a lot more intelligence. I put my gun to my eye to aim and the buck stopped cold. I swear he was looking at me. He knew. Then when I took the shot.. my trusty gun would NOT FIRE!. In a scramble, I checked my gun. It was fine. But it wouldn't shoot! The deer just stood there and kept staring at me. Then, on my second check of the gun, I got a really weird and eerie feeling. When I looked back up, this thing was standing on its hind legs and staring at me. I froze. It started to charge, running on its hind legs, full speed, directly toward my stand!

I left everything and fell about halfway down the ladder. I know I screwed up my ankle that day and I didn't care. I was terrified. I could hear the footsteps running towards me and I ran as fast as I could. Maybe like a fourth of the way to my dad's blind, I looked behind me because I was still hearing the footsteps right on my heels. But there was nothing there. The running steps chased me almost until I got to the blind. My dad thought I had been shot or something because of how I was behaving and breathing. He carried me to the truck and when I calmed down he told me that he'd heard other similar stories in the area.

I haven't gone into the woods or hunting since. That was ten years ago and until now, I haven't known WTF to do with my experience. I've been kind of watching and listening to paranormal shows since then, trying to make sense of it.

Just last week I watched that video on YouTube about deer and their relation to death, gods, Fortean theories, and the like. Since watching that episode, I've been messed up thinking that I was trying to kill a 'deer god' and that's why the buck chased me. She had some great points and a really interesting interdimensional theory. It might have put some pieces together for me. But should I go back to those woods and apologize? I'm paralyzed in fear to this day about it all and I'm not trying to make enemies, especially with some wild god. What should I do?" Q

NOTE: This is a first for me. 'Deer Gods?' 'Interdimensional Deer?' What are your thoughts? Lon

A Tennessee family, who lives near the Land Between the Lakes, experiences a variety of unsettling phenomena. As time goes on, the husband gives a detailed account of the activity, along with updates. I will also detail a very bizarre incident in which the witnesses experienced an abomination while at the Land Between the Lakes Recreational Area.

Over the years I have received many requests to post and talk about the strange and unexplained activity in the Land Between the Lakes area. I'll let you decide how dangerous this region is.

If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer each.
