    well sure if I saw one I would believe. I watch the shows about em. But reports are not enough for me. If reports were enough I would believe in ufo's, nessie, unicorns, and honest politicians

    I have never seen one, BUT, one morning while bow hunting in a new location, I walked an old drag road to the top of a small mountain. Being in a national forest, I suppose it was used by Forest personnel for some reason. Next to this drag road was a small creek and then a huge laurel thicket, so thick, in fact, that you couldn't see very far into it. After hunting most of the morning, I decided to return to the truck for some dinner, which I had forget to take with me. I was probably a mile or more from the main road, and while quietly slipping back down the road I heard a noise. I had this feeling of being watched, a weird feeling indeed. Then I heard the sound of something or someone walking in the laurel thicket. When I took a few steps, it would take a few steps. When I stopped, it stopped. It seemed to be parelleling me for some reason. I am not afraid of the woods, and have seen most north American animals. but whatever it was unnerved me. I cautiously watched the thicket and kept walking. About 3/4 of the way back, the thicket opened up to big timber. I had already decided that whatever it was, I would have to confront it then. It stopped short of the open woods, and never showed itself. It sounded too big for a cat, and a bear wouldn't have had that kind of patience to follow along at a distance, anyway around here bears will run at the sight or smell of a human. Evidently it never meant me any harm. So what was it? A bigfoot? I would like to know. rockhound

    The hurting of animals was disturbing.

    As for bigfoot I remember as a kid going to see In Search of Bigfoot. I'd love them to actually exist, but as you know I would need solid proof, not people saying they saw one. How many people have hunted for these? Even if they're super elusive there should be more proof by now.
    Ronzie,

    Many of the reports were given by hunters. They absolutely were going to shoot, until they got a good look through a scope. They said the creature looked so human, they couldn't pull the trigger.

    Roy,

    After posting so much about this subject, I had to drive out to where most of the things have happened. Climbed up the steep trail part way. Everything was very still and quiet. There were several large rock formations above where I was. When I turned to face about 45 degrees left from the top of the mountain, I started hearing a woodpecker knocking on a tree. Sounded like it was about 100-150 feet from me. I turned to face the sound and the woodpecker stopped knocking. I turned back to keep looking where I had been looking. About 5 seconds later, the woodpecker started going at it again. This time I didn't turn around. The woodpecker started knocking progressively louder. About 7 or 8 raps at a time. It got so loud that it was all I could do to look like I didn't hear it. It got so insanely loud, that I couldn't help but turn to look. The second my body was turned, I heard something move quickly from behind one of the rock outcrops around the opposite side of the hill. That dang woodpecker stopped knocking at the same time. Didn't knock again the whole time I was there. Funny thing, HUH?

    Here are some older pics of how steep this mountain is and all the trees there are.

    Reb - sounds like a blast, hope you get lucky and get a few photos! I love that area you are heading to - if you don't find any critters you just might find a little gold!

    Ronzie , Jeff Gordon- OK got it, you don't believe in them and I take that as a big no, you have never had an encounter. Thank you.

    Produce guy - how long did you have that thing in your view? Did you get to see it walk? Thank you for sharing the experience.

    Rockhound - that is kind of a creepy encounter what ever it was! I don't like any thing (or anyone) to be stalking me, which is what it sounds like that thing was doing to you. Maybe it is a good thing that you did not get to see it! Thank you too for sharing.

    Mike - what a beautiful place! That country looks mighty steep to me, and judging by the timber I am guessing that it is fairly high in elevation too. That is strange the way the woodpecker behaved; I wonder if it was not reacting to something else, that was keeping hidden but keeping an eye on you?

    Those guys on Finding Bigfoot are laughable - it ought to be a clue <to them> that they are not even getting near any ordinary wildlife most of the time, that they are making way too much noise, motion etc and not once have I ever heard them say a word about the wind direction. You know well that all animals must have food (sources) cover and water, and these guys rarely even take that into account.

    I think you are right Mike about the game trail cams too - as you pointed out, bears can smell the plastic, and there are electronics inside, which also have a smell that even a human being can smell. It is not a natural scent, would be a danger signal I think. Maybe an older, mechanical camera made of metal, rigged with a trip wire might have better luck but again scent could very well be an issue. Thank you again for sharing the pics and experience amigo, I am jealous of you (again!). Anyway even scientists state that Neanderthals are thought to have a sense of smell equal to that of a dog, which is a couple thousand times more sensitive than our own. A wild breed of humans is very likely to have that ability.

    Thank you all for your posts, including folks whom are not "believers" clearly even you have an interest in the topic or you would not be reading this. I guess I should add a story here too.

    When I was a teenager, several friends and I got together to investigate a story about a haunted spot. The story was that in the 1920s, a family had gotten into a fatal wreck at a nasty curve on PA route 92, the car ending up down in the creek (which would be a good sized river by western standards) and all were killed. This particular curve in the highway was so sharp and had caused so many fatal accidents that the state eventually cut it off and straightened the highway, so the old highway now runs off into just woods, no homes or anything is on it. Supposedly, if you were to go park on that old cutoff on a night with a full moon, you would see four sets of glowing eyes come up out of the oxbow of the creek (also cut off by the new road) and float across the road, before continuing on up the hill.

    So we went out in one car, and sat there several hours on a full moon night. Nothing was happening, and I was about to tell my buddies I was ready to quit, when suddenly the driver sat back in his seat, his face very white; he quickly started the car and took off! I yelled at him to stop, saying what is the matter with you? He said didn't you see that? About that time I heard the heavy footfalls of something running up behind the car, and grabbing at the back of it. He hit the gas again and took off, and would not stop until we got to town.

    In town we enlisted several other buddies with flashlights and headed back, but on returning to the spot only found huge wet footprints and some beaten down brush where something had come up from that swampy oxbow. My buddy told me that he saw a huge man-like thing come up from the pond, stepped right in front of the car (I was of course looking the wrong way!) and it just "loomed" over the car. We did find scratches in the paint on the rear of the car too, which were much larger than a man's hand span. But only he had seen it, the rest of us had been watching down on the pond looking for floating ghostly eyes. He said it was ten feet tall if it was an inch, and the wet footprints were a good two feet long. I don't know if that was a bigfoot or what, but do wish that I had simply looked forward when my buddy spotted it.

    Thank you again to everyone, keep em coming!

    Austin - thank you for sharing that - can you recall that smell, I mean do you think you could say it smelled like "_____" (your word, I don't want to suggest anything)? Do you think your buddy hit it? Thank you in advance,

    Roy,

    I thought you, of all people would pick up on what I was saying! I must have been close to a juvenile or female or something. I firmly believe that the woodpecker I heard was no woodpecker. I think it was something imitating a woodpecker to draw my attention away from something I was close to or looking at. Now, with that in mind reread my post. It will take on an entirely new meaning. There are a lot of animals that, if you get close to their nests, they will make a lot of noise, play like they are injured, and do all kinds of things to draw you away from their nests. At first, it sounded EXACTLY like a woodpecker hacking away at a tree, but when I didn't look at it, it kept getting louder and louder, until it became a caricature of what it was supposed to be.

    If I am correct, then I am close to either a cave, or someplace they spend a lot of time in the Winter. When I go there during the Summer Months, I haven't seen or heard anything. I can almost get some reaction at will during the Winter Months. My goal is to see one. I don't care if I get a picture, or if the one I see kills me. I just want to see one up close. If I can do that, I could die a happy man! LOL Treasurebedamned!

    Best - Mike

    Howdy Mike,

    Maybe it's a lost gold mine where they are holed up. Imagine that, finding a lost gold mine, and getting thrown over a cliff by a Bigfoot. Wonder if it's happened already to someone else?

    YO ORO! Yeah. it IS fun, in the mountains; and YES, there is GOLD in the hills... BUT! MOST of it is owned by the FEDS... I am convinced that a DANG US Forest Service Ranger is dressing up as a BIGFOOT to keep ppl "in line". AND! The "Indians" had legends of "STRANGENESS" from SNP to the PEAKED MOUNTAIN (Massanutten); the ppl ("Indians") fed the "Strange Ones" BASKETS OF NUTS, hence the word... MASSANUTTEN. I have seen lights (pre-resort days) from my home town of Shenandoah, Va. flying & hovering around that mountain range, and when I rented a place with another guy in the resort area, later... you could "feel" spooky eyes watching, as you drove up to "the Lodge" at night... for coffee, HA!

    I wish, but probably not. I have panned the creek that runs along one side of this mt. Very little color. If ya gotta go, at least go in an interesting way! LOL

    I have to say that the whole woodpecker thing was kind of freaky. I was standing just a bit uphill from the middle picture. To think that something was watching me, and trying to draw me away from from something by imitating another animal. Shows some intelligence.
