Report # 25043 (Class A)
Submitted by witness on Thursday, November 13, 2008. Campers see animal observing campsite in Cohutta Wilderness (Show Printer-friendly Version)

YEAR: 2001

SEASON: Fall

MONTH: October

DATE: mid

STATE: Georgia

COUNTY: Murray County

LOCATION DETAILS: near Cohutta Wilderness

NEAREST TOWN: chatsworth

NEAREST ROAD: 411

OBSERVED: it was autumn, and 4 or 5 of us decided to go camping. we went to the chattahoochee national forest in murray county ga.we had been there many times before, and seen many kinds of wildlife bear, deer, turkey and wild hogs. we set up camp and built a fire beside a creek. we sat there talking and telling stories and such. well around 11:oo p.m we started hearing strange noises like a high pitch shrill .someone in the group said it could be a panther since they have been known to scream. we sat there about another hour or so with the noises happening around every 20 minutes or so.then we heard limbs moving and twigs cracking from the other side of the creek. so we all looked that direction and just could make out the brush and trees at the edge of the creek. it sounded like whatever it was started getting closer.when all of a suuden we all seen limbs from the magnolia trees moving and out step this figure into the fire light.it took 2 more steps, then we all could plainly see it.it was around 6'5'' or 7' tall with a huge broad chest maybe 3' wide. one of my friends got scared and dove into the tent and made a bit of noise,but it didnt seem startled. it looked at us and then squated by the edge of the water. it appeared to be doing something with its hands,all the while keeping a dead stere on us.then we all pretty much paniced, and it calmly stood up and walked out of distance of the light and our flashlights.

ALSO NOTICED: later that morning two of us heard the same shrills/screams but it sounded like multiple animals

OTHER WITNESSES: yes at least 3 others

OTHER STORIES: yes me and someone else who was present have heard screams and seen trees about 3'' to 5'' in diameter snapped in what looked like a path in the national forest and the cohutta wilderness

TIME AND CONDITIONS: it occured around mid night and the lighting conditions werent that good but we could plainly see when we shined our flashlights

ENVIRONMENT: riparian habitat at the edge of a large creek in some what of a vally with very high hills on either side

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Morris Collins:

I met with the witness who submitted the report, as well as a second witness to the incident. Both were adamant as to the details of the encounter.

An additional detail from the on-site interview was that one of the witnesses was a pre-teen who had been crying loudly earlier in the evening. The group began hearing screams from the top of the ridge and up the mountain from the stream side camp site. There were 2-3 that were 15 to 20 minutes apart prior to hearing something moving down the hill and toward the camp site.

The creature came down the hill side and stepped out in front of a tree that overhung the creek. The stream was about 30 feet from the fire, and about 4 feet wide at that point. It squatted by the side of the stream in full view of the campers. Its hands were in the water, and it stared back at the campers with no fear. The encounter lasted approximately 1 minute. The creature then stood up and walked back around the tree. The witnesses could hear it moving back up the mountain and away from the stream. The head was rounded and sat on the shoulders. The eyes were amber in color. The arms hung almost to the knees and the legs were muscular with big calves. They could clearly see the feet on stream edge.

This report is interesting, in that it could have been the crying of the child that drew the attention of the animal. This has been noted in several reports where children are present during sightings.

The witness had another incident in September of 2008 while camping near this area. They returned to camp and heard something run away. The second night they felt something was lurking around the camp all night. They heard wood being broken during the night and found 3 inch diameter pine trees snapped off about at about 4 foot in height in a pattern that suggested a trail.

Report # 19129 (Class B)
Submitted by witness on Tuesday, May 15, 2007. Camper reports possible knocks in daylight near Conasauga River (Show Printer-friendly Version)

YEAR: 2005

SEASON: Spring

MONTH: April

DATE: 20th or 21st

STATE: Georgia

COUNTY: Murray County

LOCATION DETAILS: I have to dig out my old GA topo maps! They still have the lat long on them for the campsite. I just have to find them again! But will email them to you when I do find em!

NEAREST TOWN: Eton, Dalton Georgia

NEAREST ROAD: 411 an 76

OBSERVED: Three years ago I was up in the Cohutta Wilderness in N Georgia doing some hiking and fishing by myself. I set up camp at the remnants of an old logging camp, basically just a clearing. It was right next to a small river called the Conasauga river. As soon as I started setting up camp I started hearing what sounded like a big thick stick repeatedly getting wrapped against a tree. I don't remember how many times it was but I remember it going on for a minute or two.
I low crawled down to the river and peeked out from under some trees and looked upriver where the sound was coming from but did not see anything. The sound stopped and I went back and finished setting up camp.

After I set up I waded across the stream and went to where I thought the sound came from and found nothing but a bunch of beaver chewed trees. When I saw those chewed trees I attributed the noise to them. After that my entire trip there was quiet. I was by myself and was about 8 miles from anything resembling civilzation.

ALSO NOTICED: Not that I remember.

OTHER WITNESSES: No I was by myself.

OTHER STORIES: No

TIME AND CONDITIONS: I would say around nooninsh!

ENVIRONMENT: Heavily wooded with a mix of evergreen and leafy trees. It was an old logging camp. It was a clearing but the trees were starting to take it over again. Nothing is left of the camp but a few railroad rails and a small concrete foundation.

A & G References: Georgia DeLorme grid 13

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Morris Collins:

I spoke with the witness on two occasions via phone and email. He has sinced moved to Alaska but was able to locate his map so that accurate coordinates were obtained of his camping location. The coordinates are at the rivers edge, at the end of the "Tearbritches Trail".

He decided to file a report after coming across information on the Internet about bigfoots and wood knocking. He stated that although there were beaver sign in the area, the sound did not resemble a beaver slapping its tail on the water.

Subsequently, there has been a Class A sighting 12 miles WSW of this location in Whitfield county in August 2007 that is currently under investigation.
