Description of incident: In the wintess's son's own words:
"Well, when I was about 12 years old my father would always go hunting. He would get up before first light and be out there before the sun would come up. One morning my brother and I got up and my dad came back from his hunting trip early. We thought he had shot a deer so we ran out to greet him and he hadn't shot a deer. We asked him why he was back early and he said that he had heard something out there that scared the crap out of him. His story goes, he was sitting on on top of a ridge before the sun came up. As the sun was coming up he could here the birds singing. As the sun crested the next mountain over he heard something let out a loud scream. The birds went silent and he heardaway in the creek below. The hair on the back of his neck stood up and he went to his truck and left. I asked him to describe the scream and he said the best way to describe it would be if you were in a metal room and there was a large metal table in the room and drug the table across the metal floor. Years later when I was working weekend duty in the military I was discussing and Bigfoot with a coworker. I told him the story and he said there was sound clips on the internet. I got on the internet and found most of the clips to be cougars, monkeys, owls, etc. There was one that I pulled up that sounded exactly like what my dad described. The hair on my neck stood up!"
Comments: It is interesting that this report comes from the Junction City area. As far as I know, I have as yet to hear of any Bigfoot activity coming from the Junction City area. I am not saying that there is no Bigfoot activity in that particular area; there hasn't been any reported from that area. At least to me or the WVBS. It might be an area worth checking into in the future.
