Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Rick Reles:
I spoke with the submitter, the son, about the sighting his mother had on their property while deer hunting. It was 1:30 PM. Son was less than a mile away, also hunting, when his Mom saw the creature, and called him, very frightened. She saw it rise up up from a 4 point stance. It appeared to be looking over some tracks on the ground, in the light snow cover, stood, and looked at her. She described it as 600 pounds or more, large head, pointy ears on the side, and much larger than a bear. The creature had fur, and she seemed to have startled it, as she came upon it suddenly and was only 20 yards from it, when it stood up. She was scared, turned and ran to her tree stand and called her son.
He arrived, and scouted the area. He saw broken branches, tracks in the snow, and noticed bad smells. He had the eerie feeling of being watched. He has smelled these smells before in the area.
His mother said "I have never seen anything that big before in the woods".
These two are very experienced in the woods. They have seen bears, wolves and mountain lions. This was nothing they had ever experienced.
Report #48085 is one of two reports close to this location that I investigated prior.
