Harrison County Ohio (Class B) BFRO

March 2010

In the summer of 2010, my family had met my sister and her family at the end of a bay at Tappan lake in Harrison county, Ohio. We were fishing at a point of the bay where you had to walk approximately 40 to 45 yards to the lake shore. My wife Amy had decided to walk back to our van for another chair and I decided to go with her because the trail was a bit winding through the woods. As we went, we heard a "whooping" sound not too far from our location. My wife asked me what it was and having never heard anything like it at the time and thinking rationally, I said it was an owl. Then, about a year later, while watching an episode of Finding Bigfoot, she heard the same sound that we heard that night at the lake. I wont tell you what she said to me, but she is now a firm believer. We haven't gone fishing at Tappan lake at night since that experience.
