GRAY 'THING' IN THE WOODS Seen by Campers Near Table Mountain, Washington

A group of campers is set up near Table Mountain, Washington. On two occasions, a gray human-shaped figure is seen and heard near the campsite. Was it a crawler humanoid or something else?

I received the following account:

"A few years ago we were camping near Table Mountain, Washington. We were cooking dinner and hearing noises all around the campsite, but I still think it was just the noise of the river, though it did sound like boots sloshing through the river. I also heard faint drumming noises, at this point, I wasn't scared but my friend was and I decided I'd have fun with him by shining my flashlight and pretending I was seeing something.

The third or fourth time I did this I saw a gray human-shaped figure hunched over the ground between two trees, with very long limbs, it bent upward, and its head was gray and large. I noticed two eyes and no features, it seemed almost to use its elbows a lot then it just vanished. My friends said I did a double take and all my color drained. I sat down and kept saying it was a deer. I wasn't scared I was just like, "Yeah I saw something."

At various points for the next hour, we kept hearing movement and I also smelled a rotten egg-like odor floating around the air. That odor was in the tent when we got in but I didn't think anything of it. We then started talking about the various events of the day that involved this weird activity. We eventually went to sleep.

Earlier in the day my friend and I went on a brutal hike up Table Mountain leaving our other two friends to prepare firewood. On our arrival, I went into the tent. My friend says he thought he saw a man in a gray t-shirt (keep in mind it's December and it's cold) by one of their bags on the way in. Apparently, they were in the tent the whole time. My friend seemed to get scared at this point, I said it was probably just a hiker. I found out later that while they were in the tent they heard frequent footsteps around the campsite, so frequent and close to the tent they thought we had returned and were walking around the campsite. This part of the story could be explained but if it's people I think that's even scarier because I've spent months of my life camping. I know it's common practice to make your presence known upon arrival to your campsite, and I know that you don't poke around a habited site that isn't yours.

I'm confused as to why my friends in the tent didn't go tell whoever it was to take off, maybe it's good they didn't. There are some weird people in the woods. I do remember feeling a totally different vibe upon our arrival back to the site after our hike. These are some of the details, I'm more concerned with the gray 'thing' I saw in the woods that night. I was never scared just confused and found the quickest thing I could use to explain it away, I didn't see a deer, I see deer every day where I live. I don't really know what I saw." T

JERSEY DEVIL - WINGED LEGEND FROM HELL! | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #JerseyDevil

During an interview several years ago, I was asked for my opinion of the Jersey Devil and if I had received sighting reports related to the beast. Most of the reports I received were confidential, and I have received reports of other phenomena in the Pine Barrens of southeast New Jersey.

There is a stigma attached to the Jersey Devil. People are wary of reporting this creature. I'm not sure if the reluctance is because of the fear of ridicule or if the legend has some ominous bearing to it. Anyway, I will first offer a synopsis of the legend and then add a few reports that I have received from the area.

Please listen to the following accounts I have received from witnesses who believe that the Jersey Devil exists, and then decide for yourself. I hope that you enjoy the presentation.
