Deer hunter has sighting at dusk near Jubilee College State Park
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Peoria County
NEAREST TOWN: Princeville
NEAREST ROAD: Evans Mill Rd.
OBSERVED: Well I was deer hunting with three of my friends I decided to take a break and rest near this clearing. While sitting on a log this tall thing crossed in front of me through the opening in the woods.
I was about 120 yards from it and it never looked at me. It walked through the clearing very quickly and was gone.
My friends and I had split up. They never saw it and I did not tell many people because I didn't want to be made fun of. After my friend found footprints there this spring I decided it report it.
ALSO NOTICED: None.
OTHER WITNESSES: Three others were also hunting, but were not with me and did not see it.
OTHER STORIES: Yes, my friend found footprints in the same hunting area this spring.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Just before dusk.
ENVIRONMENT: Woods, lots of brush.
