Experienced bow hunter recalls being scared by an unknown scream/howl near Austin

YEAR: 1992


MONTH: October

DATE: 20

STATE: Indiana

COUNTY: Scott County

LOCATION DETAILS: take I-65 to Austin IN go west on 256 turn left on Boatman Rd turn right on York street, fallow the road till it turns into gravel and then dead ends at the river in the middle of a field. It is the deep in the woods on the right


NEAREST ROAD: Boatman Rd , I-65

OBSERVED: It was bow season in October 1992, around 5:30 in the evening. I had just climed out of my deer stand and heard movement about 20 meters in front of my stand. So I decided to just sit at the base of the tree to see if if the deer would come out of the brush, and hopefuly get a shot at it. After waiting for about 10 minutes it got pretty dark in the woods. Too dark to take a shot, so instead of spooking the deer, I decided to wait for it to move out so that I might have another chance at it the next day. It was making alot of noise, kind of unusual for deer. I must have set there for another 20 minutes when I heard this loud high pitch scream, or howl. It lasted for about 3-4 seconds and it was very close to my left. Needless to say, it scared the crap out of me! I have never heard anything like that before! I grew up around the woods and I have been hunting for many years, and never heard that sound before or since. I have been in the military for 16 years and spent my share of many different types of wilderness, and this sound that I heard I will never forget.

ALSO NOTICED: nothing and I hunted these woods for years



TIME AND CONDITIONS: between 6:00 - 6:30 pm. dark in the woods, but you could just see the sky through the tree tops. and it was around 55degrees

ENVIRONMENT: the area is called the Austin Bottoms, because it is always flooded, 1000's of acres of woods, alot of farm land. many branches of the muscatak river run through it. lots of game


Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Eric Lester:

I spoke to the witness, an Iraq war veteran, over the phone about what he heard that evening. The scream/howl was so close to him that he jumped up and ran while the howl was still going on, and he didn't stop until he was out of the area and back to the road, about a half-mile away. When he initially started running, the scream/howl ceased. It was described as rising in pitch, extremely loud, and similar to the howls found on the BFRO website.

The area is described as being extensive forest interspersed with many swamps. The Muscatatuck River runs through this area.

He hasn't been back to those woods since.
