Sumter County, Sumter
South Carolina 2005

I live in Sumter, South Carolina and I would like
to be anonymous, but I have a report I would love to tell you even if it didn’t make it to your web page. Several friends of mine and I were hunting down in a patch of woods that was registered hunting grounds and it seemed to be around 10:30 a.m. or so; we were in our separate deer stands when we heard a grunt unlike any we have ever heard before, so Mike (one of my friends) radioed me on our 3-way radios and said "what was that?"

Well it was sort of uncanny to me at the moment, but as soon as I
realized what it was, we saw the dark creature standing before our eyes. It was directly in the middle of the field. His arms were bent back like the bigfoot creature in the Patterson film and it stood to about 8 1/2 feet tall. Roy (another one of my friends fired his rifle to scare the creature and it hurried off into the woods.

The next day, I returned to the hunting ground with my camera, it was about 11:35 a.m. and went to the area where the bigfoot creature had rushed off, and found the footprint, so I pulled out my digital camera and snapped this photo. Please help me with any information you can,
