Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Rick Reles:
I spoke with Del Kerly at length about his encounter. He was deer hunting on 46 acres of woodland near where he lives. From his stand he saw a tree shaking violently in the woodline. Through his scope he saw a large black haired creature, back in the woods and swaying side to side. It had a cone shaped head and seemed over eight feet tall. Del reported a smell like wet dog also. Some of the hair had a reddish appearance. He saw it for several seconds through his scope.
Other incidents from this property include:
-His nephew had "softball" sized rocks thrown at him from the woods, while hunting.
- Stick structures, of odd, unnatural appearance have shown up on the property.
-The deer movement on the property has changed, as they seem to be hiding.
-Del has found large footprints.
-He got a strange picture of what appears to be an arm, reaching in front of his trail cam near salt licks he had place for deer.
