Thanks for this. Living rural down here, I know several people who claim to have seen something. Most of these I wouldn't trust with a water pistol,
and their stories tend to mutate in the retelling in proportion to the amount of alcohol they consume. I've never seen anything myself, but I've had
those weird moments when you feel eyes on you, and you just shake it off.
There is one guy I used to go target shooting with who said he saw something while turkey hunting. He would name off what he was positive it
wasn't such as another man, or bear, boar or deer, but when I'd suggest skunk ape he'd just smile and tell me "You said that, I didn't."
He was a sober guy, an older Vietnam vet who did data and communications contracting, and a solid, well grounded man, who was not prone to flights of
fantasy or flying off the handle.
He never would tell me what he thought it was, just what he knew it wasn't. I think since so much of his work depended on his reputation, he didn't
want it getting out that he might have seen something most people won't even consider as possibly real.
