There is nothing else that what I saw could be. It looked consistent with most sightings that I have heard
about. I'm 26 years old and your the first I've told that I didn't know. The area was heavily wooded. We
called them Mountains but there more like large hills. The creature was standing in the middle of a gravel
road on top of a hill about 100 yards from a lake. The creature was large and hairy, Long hair, no neck.
I was building a deer stand overlooking a shell pit. When it started getting dark we carried the scrap wood
back to our tractor and trailer parked a short distance away on the gravel road which led to our house and many others.
We were parked on the top of a hill that leveled out at the top about 30 yards. As I loaded wood I happened to
look to my left and there it was standing in the road staring at us with its arms held slightly out from its
sides. From where I was standing it had Lake Eufaula as a backdrop and I could see about two foot of hair
covering it head to toe, blowing lightly in the breeze. At that time my brother and I stood in amazement arguing what this thing was.
He said, "Do you know what that is?", and I said, "Yeah, that's a gorilla." That being the only logical
animal that even slightly resembled what we were looking at. And my brother said "NO That's a BIGFOOT." I proceeded to tell him there was no such thing. But I knew that this was no gorilla. It was just dark
enough not to see facial features but it was a perfect silhouette against the blue water. It was tall
and stood upright. How tall? It's hard to say when you're scared to death. It had no neck to speak of
but lots of hair. We didn't hang around to long before we turn tail and ran. We came back later for our tractor and trailer.
