July 2022

My husband and I rented a yurt in Beavers Bend State Park on July 15, 2022. Our Yurt sits directly on the Mountain Fork River. We stayed up until midnight and headed to bed. Around 2 am we woke to the sound of 6 or 7 consecutive howls over a 3 minute time span. It was very loud and east of our yurt. It was then silent. 30 minutes later we heard 3 loud hollering vocalizations much closer in the other direction, to the west of us. We have spent a lot of time in the woods. This is a sound we've never heard before. It was not a bear growl. It was not a coyote or a bobcat. This was loud.
