Here are some fossilized footprints of pterosaurs:
From your description I don't think they are a match, but at least you have something to compare it too.

Awesome thread, thank you for sharing your experiences and the additional reports from various sources you have posted. I believe you, and I believe there are a great many creatures which are still unknown to us which have survived from millenia ago such as Sasquatch/ Yeti etc and Loch Ness creature which I believe are surviving creatures from previous times. Also the reports of Mothmen sightings has always fascinated me and present day dragons (which are also probably prehistoric creatures).

It seems like most of these giant bird (or reptile) sightings were from the 1970's. I think that if they did exist they are probably extinct now. With so much habitat destruction in the last 40 years, and so many more people around to see things if they still exist, it seems very likely to me that they died out.
I think that for most people they really do have to see something to believe. Some years ago I was oblivious to some of the things that exist in this world but that are not acknowledged by the majority. I still had internal doubts about the existence of sasquatch until I saw one with my own eyes, so who am I to tell someone that what they experienced did not happen...However, in your case I will say that since you did not have visual confirmation, there is room for reasonable doubt. If what you describe is accurate, then it is very likely you were dealing with a large flying creature of some sort, although its identity may not necessarily be what you have concluded.
Most people do not realize the area of unexplored and uninhabited terrain we are dealing with on this planet, or that for undiscovered creatures to exist is not really a big stretch. There is certain evidence to suggest such things exist, and if this is the case, then some of these creatures have existed right under our noses for who knows how long...That is truly remarkable when you think about it. For a bird of some type, even a large bird, this is entirely plausible imo.

I was born in those East Tennessee mountains. I can remember some mighty strange things happening when I was young.
Whether or not it was a Pteranodon, I have no way of knowing. That being said, I have no doubt you've encountered one of those "special" animals that make our ET mountains home

Whoa whoa, hold on.
So you never actually looked to see this creature?
But assumed it sounded like a dinosaur , even though no living human knows what a dinosaur actually sounds like?
And then made a thread with the headline "Visited by a Pteranodon".
I know you know this is frivolous. Don't do it again.
