DATE: Winter 1992, Deer Season
LOCATION: San Augustine county, Angelina National Forest.
TERRAIN: Heavy Timber
OBSERVED: I had went hunting with my grandfather one Saturday Morning. I was 15 years old at the time, and what I saw I to this day have not told my grandfather about it. I know he would give me a hard time about seeing all types of "Boogers" and stuff so I have kept quiet about it. Until now, and I am sharing it with you. My grandfather had previously went and placed up the Deer stands in which we could hunt from. So before daylight, I was escorted by my grandfather to my stand, since I didn't have any idea of where my stand was at, much less know my way around that stretch of woods. I had never hunted there before or since. My grandfather is one of those bee on your stand a good hour or more before daylight types, so I must have gotten on the stand around
5:00 am or so. My grandfather would return later to pick me up so we could go home, he said to be careful and off he went to his hunting location. Anyway, just as daylight was starting to break, and I could see out oh a good 100 yards or so into the lifting dew mist. Some movement caught my eye, and I focused in on what it could be. I saw something that was HUGE, and dark in color crawling on all fours. It came crawling out of the water, which is Sam Rayburn Lake. At first I thought it was a bear, but it looked like a man down on all fours, and was definitely a dark brownish/black in hair color, and was like I said HUGE! I have been told by several people that there are'nt bears in this part of the country so until recently, I have passed this off as maybe just a bear sighting. I have learned that in some of the local areas surrounding this area that there has been reports from other people of a bigfoot type creature, that has been seen on a couple of occasions. So I am now near certain that what I seen was a Bigfoot possibly trying to sneak up on something by crawling on all fours.
