This may be slightly ot, but the bfro website you provided is very interesting. I lived in texas, cass county to be exact and i never knew so many
bigffot sightings occured there....even some were in my town and the neighboring one! There are also many sightings in the neighboring counties. I
didnt know east texas was that active with sightings...very interesting. I dont have any sightings of my own, but me and my friends did come across
something strange one night, never could figure out what it was so here goes.
There were somewhere between 10-15 of us all boyscouts around the age 0f 13, and 2 adult leaders. 9 miles outside of Linden Texas. We were trying to
earn our survival merit badge, by bulding our own shelters an such, that night it also dropped below freezing....what luck. We were all awake around
2am, when we started hearing something running through the brush, more like crashing, but we blew it off. This continued on for 30 mins on and off.
Around 2:30-2:45 we heard s tremendous thunbing on the ground as iff someone was hitting it with giant sledge hammers quickly and repeatedly.
The ground slightly shook and it was verly very close, we all took off for our leaders tent, when we arrived he was loading a shotgun....he is in the
military,has been for 20+ is an experienced woodsmen and knows so much about that land it's borderline freakish haha. He had no idea what it was but
recalled a few instances with happenings such as this . we all gathered spotlights and headed out towards the sound. it stopped when we were around 50
yards from it(estimate). We got to the area, there were broken branches all over the place a stnech like a wet dog, and other disturbances in the
brush. I have pictures if i can find them, my freind also has pictures. this hapened 5 years ago so ill have to do some digging. We never saw anything
unfortunately. Sorry for the long post
