COUNTY: Knox County
LOCATION DETAILS: Bazile Creek State Wildlife Management Area. Along Missouri River
NEAREST TOWN: Santee
NEAREST ROAD: US 12
OBSERVED: Approximatley 40 yards away standing on the edge of a ravine. Hight difficult to estimate because of standing a little down hill. somewhere around 7ft. Gray hair over entire body. muscular very thick neck. Was standing very erect, turning head side to side as if trying to smell for something. Looked directly at me and I ducked down. When I looked again nothing was there. I heard a scream the previous day but attributed that to a bobcat. A friend of mine was in a deer stand approx. 1 and 1/4 mile away as the crow flies down from the ravine in the direction in which I thought it went. He told me that I wouldn't believe what ran by his deer stand. He described to me the same thing I saw. He was very upset.
ALSO NOTICED: As stated earlier. The previous day I heard a scream It was very long and loud almost like a womans scream. I thought someone fell off of one of the cliffs in the area. When I described the scream to people the said it was a bobcat. It may have been. i don't know if this is related or not.
OTHER WITNESSES: A friend of mine hunting with me. As described above. He will not talk about it. For fear of being ridiculed.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: it was about an hour before sunset
ENVIRONMENT: Edge of ravine approx. 250 yards from river. Moderate to Heavy wooded area. Chalk rock cliffs and marsh area.
