I heard a few in Bryson City NC last week...I rented a cabin in the mountains to get away for a few days... our last night there me and my cousin couldn't sleep and woke up and watched tv in the living room... we heard something outside and I opened the side door and heard something 30 feet or more away from me grunting and screaming and ran thru the woods... I kept hearing whoop whoop for 2 hours after that like it was coming back and forth watching us... my brother and friend heard it as well... I did a call and it responded every time....it scared me to no end

It does sound like you had a Bigfoot encounter. My daughter and I experienced 2 distinct howls and several woodknocks off Aska Rd. In Blueridge, Ga., and from what you’re saying, i’m Sure what you heard was the same. We even had something large running toward us at our cabin. We were so scared of the sounds alone, we immediately ran inside. I wish many times we would have stood there on that porch just long enough to see what this creature looked like.
