OBSERVED: I'm part of a paranormal group,we were out last night, I heard 3 knocks, didn't think nothing of it at the time, thought people in the woods playing around, but my partner went to take pics in the woods, sat on a park bench, and said he heard some snorts, we thought just a deer or something. Then we sat to do an EVP session, before we started the recorders we heard something kill a deer, then it sounded so close we decided to maybe get out of there, we started to leave and got some eye shine, thought maybe coyotes, but looked at the pics, the eye shine is well over the 3 ft peas growing in the farm field, what's weird is I went out today, and there's nothing in the field disturbed, no blood, no body, no trace of anything?? I know there are no sightings this low in Wisconsin, but still kind of weird! I was thinking you might want to have someone you guys know come check it out, maybe they can find more than i did, it happened Sep. 1, 2012 about 10pm off Fitzsimmons Road in Oak Creek Wisconsin, please email me, I can meet someone and show all I know. Love the show!

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Robert Barhite:
The far southeast corner of Wisconsin. while quite populated, has seen an increase in the number of sightings recently. The area where the incident in question occurred is isolated and has no light sources. The witnesses were in the process of unpacking recording equipment to conduct an EVP session when they heard nearby snorting and what sounded like a deer being killed. The snorting came closer, so they decided to leave the area. As they left they saw eye shine above the agriculture growth in the field which was about three feet tall at the time.
Photo taken of the eye-shine in the field:
He returned the following day. If your over the little hill in front of the pea field, you can't see the road, so if the eyes were that far back the eyes had to be up high. The tree knocks came from further to the right in this comparison photo taken during the daytime of the same field:
Milwaukee County, Wisconsin is located in the far southeastern part of Wisconsin and according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,190 square miles (3,081 kmē), of which 242 square miles (626 kmē) is land and 948 square miles (2,456 kmē) (79.70%) is water. To the east is Lake Michigan.
The area where the sighting took place is rumored to be a haunted area from the 1950's. Its a wooded area with some upscale housing developments, and about four miles to the south are Renak-Polak Maple-Beech Woods State Natural Area, Nicholson Wildlife Refuge, and Gorney Park. Paranormal groups investigate the area, which led to the reported experience.
