Campers hear something "running" through camp & find very large footprints
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Granite County
LOCATION DETAILS: Sand Basin area
OBSERVED: We were in a hunting camp and something spooked the horses late at night. This is not uncommon here but something was different. Something came running through camp and made the strangest yell I've ever heard. We thought it was probably a bear or what have you, but the next morning we found some parcel tracks that appeared to be man shaped but larger. We all wondered if it could be what we thought but needed the meat we were after worse. We just kind of left it at that and use it to scare visiting relatives.
OTHER WITNESSES: We had finished dinner and had been in bed for about a 1/2 hour or so when it happened.
OTHER STORIES: Just a couple of rumors from some local outfitters.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: late at night
ENVIRONMENT: The terrain is high mountain meadow w/ lots of fresh run off creeks etc. It is swampy in spots but good wooded cover very close by. That is why we hunt here--it is REALLY secluded.
