Bollinger County, Missouri

This happened in 1976 in Bollinger County, Missouri on Hwy 72 we live on a farm that was connected to my Uncle's farm by some pasture.

I was coming back to our house when I saw these sets of footprints going into the woods. Having been born and raised on a farm and being around all types of animals so I had no fear. I just started following them into the woods and after i got a hundred feet
or so into the woods I smelled something that was worse than a skunk and had the feeling of being a watched. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I had a feeling that I needed to get out of there.

The footprints were like human but very large no one would go barefoot in the woods.
I did not see anything but I know something was there and it was Sasquatch with the prints and that smell.

Now, looking back on it, what I did was not very bright, but I was only 13 years old then and following a set of prints into the woods anything could have happen to me.At that time I never heard of Sasquatch, but I wanted to find out what made those footprints.
