Minnesota Deer Hunter Experiences 'GLIMMER MAN' At Two Locations

A Minnesota deer hunter recalls two incidents where he encountered shimmering beings, or a 'Glimmer Man' while hunting. These incidents occurred at two separate locations.

"I informed my best friend that I wanted to move to the more classic big woods to hunt. After some persuading, I convinced him to start exploring the Lake Itasca, Minnesota, ASCA area, which by the way is the source lake of the Mississippi River. We soon found numerous miles of big woods and settled in the area of our opening day hunt of 1977.

While exploring that area the day before opening day looking for where I wanted to hang my tree stand, I had an experience that while spending countless hours in the woods I'd never experienced before. A tree fell in the woods. Yes, it does happen, however, what set this apart was that it was a glorious blue sky, no wind kind of day, just very calm breezes. The other strange part was that it fell about 25 yards away from me and I was looking almost directly in that direction when it fell and it was a live tree about 16 to 18 inches in diameter. There was no teetering. It fell over as if pushed by a powerful force.

Now to the weird part. As I was looking in that direction I could see movement except there was nothing there to see, just a shimmering sort of thing. I stood there for a bit then walked over to this now fallen tree just could not understand what had just happened. After a while, I decided I needed to get on with finding where I wanted to set up, so I continued along that ridge line. Several hundred yards east of there I found the tree I was looking for overlooking a yellow grass swamp that I had just known was the spot. I did not mention any of this strangeness to my friend or his brother because they were both terrified of the dark and the monsters who lived in it and I really wanted to hunt there. I got a beautiful 225lbs dressed out buck the next afternoon.

We moved out of that area the next year due to the political issue of local indigenous people who had taken over that area and had incorporated it into their White Earth Reservation, so we moved several miles to the east and found some good new spots. Our friend's little brother was not the best woodsman and one day he did not return to camp so we set off looking for him. We had about 8 inches of powder snow so we tried to find his tracks to follow. My friend went one way and I went another. After several hours of not finding his tracks, I caught a nice buck track so decided to incorporate still hunting him and searching at the same time. I came down the ridge line into a lower area bordering an Alder swamp where the buck tracks then led back uphill.

As I rounded a brushy area off to my left, I heard what sounded like a herd of elephants crashing through the woods. Again these are big woods so visibility was somewhat good however even though the sounds were coming from a very short distance away. There was nothing to see except once again just a shimmering of movements with an added twist. I will not say there were footprints left in the snow but they were more like depressions spread wide apart and heading uphill shimmering loud crashing depressions and nothing else. It was late afternoon, so I chose to turn around to head back to camp. Of course, my little brother was there waiting. I never hunted that area again because I didn't need to.

I never could really quantify any of this until I saw the “Predator” movie. I cannot tell you how watching that movie made me feel. As stated above I continued to pursue my outdoor passion because I believe I know what many of these creatures are and I believe that I am protected by the blood of Jesus. In fact, I go into and out of my deer hunting areas with what I call severe dark, two hours before a light even begins to show. I wear all-black clothing and carry in my camo or blaze clothing to change into at my tree stand I do this because I've been shot at too many times over the years. I do fear idiots. I do not fear dying but I do not want to die from idiots."
