Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TK Bell:
The witness and his wife go walking in the early mornings daily. One nice calm morning around 6:30 am they were walking and they heard a whack sound and then after about four seconds heard a second whack sound. He looked to his wife and said what was that and her reply was I donít know.
The terrain is woods, small creeks, farm land and deer can be seen walking down the gravel road. Located in the same area as the Cardinal Marsh
He was down at his neighbors, and asked if the neighbor had heard anything like a whack sound on a tree or wood. Neighbor said yes that it had sounded really close to the property and was really loud in about the same area as they were walking.
He has hunted with a bow for many years and never seen anything unusual or smelled anything out of the ordinary, or heard that sound before.
They have heard of several Bigfoot sightings in the Cardinal Marsh Wildlife Area.
