The colossal thing in the woods

Let me start the story off with a little background. My name is Noah and I live far out in the country, where you have to drive about 45 minutes to get to town. Or to any store, unless you’re going to a liquor store. So basically there’s nothing around but trees, and a small lake. I’ve always loved walking around in the woods, it’s calming. It’s always quiet, with the occasional birds chirping. It was the middle of summer in 2017, and I was 15. Walking around in the woods as I usually do, but things felt weird. I felt a certain stillness.

No sound, not even the birds. I brushed it off, since it wasn’t too bad. Keep in mind it was around 9:30 pm. When the sun was just going down, I would be out there until about 11:30 pm. My parents were always okay with it because they’d grown up there and knew the woods very well. My father even hunted in those same woods. That night I was walking around as usual and heard a loud crunch from behind, with instinct I jumped and turned around. But nothing was there, again I brushed it off as some animal. Like a deer or a coyote as I’d seen them wondering around here before and they never bothered me. I kept walking but something again, wasn’t right. I felt like I was being watched and not just the normal someone looking at you. I felt paranoid and very panicky. What I felt had it’s eyes on me wasn’t human, it was something way more sinister. I decided to go back to my house for the fear of something bad happening to me.

Fast forward about 20 minutes, and I’m back at home. I went to bed as usual, but woke up in the middle of the night. I looked at my clock and it was 3 am. I got up looking outside at the trees surrounding my house. But as I scanned the woods, I saw something; something glowing. Two bright yellow eyes, and it wouldn’t of been as bad if they weren’t nearly 7 feet off the ground! Otherwise I’d be able to assume it’s a wolf or something. But this, this was not something even remotely close to human or animal. I stared, unable to move, then it left. I didn’t sleep that night, I laid awake wondering what it was. The next day I decided to be dumb me and go out in the woods again, it’s Sunday night by the way. Around the same time I went out and walked around. Every so often I heard footsteps behind. Not normal light footsteps of an animal. Huge and loud footsteps. I instantly thought of the thing I saw last night, turned around and headed back home. When I heard another crunch, I looked behind me and there it was….. A huge creature. It had a wolf head, deer legs, huge human like hands but they had claws, it’s arms hung down nearly to the ground. It’s body was fuzzy and matted. It had yellow glowing eyes and sharp teeth. Every tooth was as big as a wolf’s canine tooth. I screamed louder than I’ve ever screamed before, and tried to back up slowly so I didn’t anger it with sudden movements, but I tripped and fell backwards. The creature growled loudly, not any normal grow. it sounded like clicking with the miss of a lion and a jet engine. Very deep and loud. I scrambled onto my feet and ran, I heard it behind me, it was so close I could feel it’s hot breath on the back of my neck. Then it’s low growl again, echoed through the forest, louder than before and I felt a sharp pain go down my back and I screamed in agony, but kept running. I couldn’t run much longer, I was out of breath and I wanted to collapse from the pain in my back. I finally reached the treeline and saw my house. But then I noticed everything was silent again, the creature was gone.

Rougarou sighting in France

So me, my family, my boyfriend, and his family went to Europe for a vacation. Me and my boyfriend who we’ll call John went for a walk in the woods. He and i both loved adventure which is what is one of the things that brought us together. My boyfriend brought a pocket knife for protection. We stayed in those woods for a while, so much so that it was turning dark. We stopped for a while because we were getting tired on our way back we saw something terrifying. A large half man, half dog like creature it was extremely large and muscular it had large sharp teeth, and large claws. I froze while my boyfriend looked toward it not backing up or getting scared. Now he was large 7 ft 6in he was a giant and went to the gym often nearly everyday for an hour while i was a 6ft and skinny teenager. But he had something strange happen to him when he got pissed his hair stood up on edge and his muscle mass somehow grows we still dont know what it is. thats when his hair a stood up and his muscle mass increased. He grabbed his knife, he told me to go to the apartment so i ran and i heard alot of grunts and growls. I got home and a bit later so did john he was badly wounded a large gash from his left shoulder to the middle of his left pec and an scar on his face from his chin to his lower lip. He said what had happened the monster charged at him he moved but it still got him in his chest good. Than he shoved the knife through its face and pulled it back out cutting it’s face in two not before it got him in the jaw with is claw than made his way back to the apartment before passing out, he was taken to the hospital. He’s fine now but for a while couldn’t feel his shoulder or move it well either. Through some research i found out what we saw was a rougarou. If john wasn’t there i don’t what would’ve happened.

The wendigo in the forest

Me and my Friend were sitting at his house on a nice hot summer day being bored. When we decided to go explore a trail in his woods. So we got ready to go on this little adventure. We got his dog to go with us on this walk, cause my friend weird stuff had happened out in those woods. But I didn’t believe him, so we started walking through his woods until we got to a trail. We started walking on it, he kept trying to scare me as a joke but it wasn’t really scaring me. So we kept walking enjoying the sun and the adventure. But than his dog starting whining, and his dog is bigger and didn’t really get scared that easily. So I was just walking minding my business when my friend started runnin with his dog on a leash. He looked at me and said run, I didn’t believe him cause he was trying to joke around with me before, but he looked back at me with a really pale and terrified face and yelled “RUN”. Than a sudden rotten smell got really bad, so I looked back and there it was towering over me just observing me, this thing was not human, it had long fingers, pale skin almost as white as snow, and it stood over almost 2-3 feet. Mind you I’m like 5’8, I was scared so I took off without hesitation, the thing got on all fours and took off into the woods. As me and my friend were running I looked over in the woods next to us, and there it was keeping up with us, running on all fours like some kind of animal, than me and my friend got to the little trail that led to his house so we booked it back to his house, I have never felt so scared in my life.

Than, like a week later I came back to his house and we were bored so I said “why don’t we go back into those woods and see what was really there.” So we did, just me and my friend. We walked through the little trail to get to the bigger trail. And as soon as we got to the big trail, we heard a really distorted, high pitched scream nothing like I’ve heard before, that spooked us to the point where we started running back to his house as fast as we could. When we got back to his house, we started doing reasearch on what it could have been. It turned out to be something like a wendigo. So me and him agreed to never go out into those woods again.

Wendigo Encounter in North-Western montana

I was about 8 or 9 years old when this happened, but I have an eidetic memory and this is still crystal-clear in my mind to this day. Now, for some context, I’m 1/8th Blackfoot (Native American), and not normally superstitious, but this is what convinced me the supernatural is real. I was out hiking in the mountains and I had my .22 rim-fire rifle slung across my chest. I heard a shrill, disturbing, noise from behind me, which I thought was an animal in pain… Most likely a large grizzly bear or puma. Now, I’m still a smaller guy, so I ran like hell uphill to the nearest tree that I could climb easily. That… thing… tried to come up after me, so I hit it in the head with the butt of my rifle, and It. Was. Pissed. It roared at me, and I froze. I spent the next three fucking days and nights stuck in that damn oak, trying to out-wait the bastard. Finally, it left, and I jumped down and ran like hell for the family property, 15 miles to the south. The thing chased me the whole way home. The only reason I’m alive now is because my Great-Grandpa Leroy put an incendiary round from a Barret .50 cal. into it’s skull. It burst into flames and collapsed inward on itself. (He’s a retired Marine Corps Sniper, and still has 20-20 vision.)

My 7th grade camping nightmare

Last year in 7th grade, we took a camping trip for a few days. Once we got there we set up our tents and got into our hiking teams but something about the whole trip seemed off. From the moment we set foot on the camping ground something felt off but I haven’t been camping all to often so I pushed it off. The day went on with us hiking a few hikes and when we got back from our hikes we started a fire and had marshmellows and told stories. After we all went to our tents I was on my phone for a little than I tried to go to sleep. After about 15 minutes, I opened my eyes and saw shadows on the tent wall but I pushed it as being shadows cast by the fire and after that I fell asleep. The next day was the same as the last, we hiked again and did a night hike. When we got back we had to go to bed so after we went to the bathroom we went to our tents and wemt to sleep. Just like the last night I couldn’t go to sleep quickly so after about 15 minutes I opened my eyes and say the same shadows but the fire was out. I closed my eyes for 5 minutes then opened my eyes to see a figure crouching outside the tent. It started to circle the tent until it stopped in front of the tent zipper so I closed my eyes and fell asleep after that. In the morning I was standing outside the tent waiting for my friend to get out and when I looked down at the ground I saw footprints but they weren’t made by a human, but by some animal. I didn’t say anything to my friends or classmates and later in the day, we went on 3.5 mile hike. We were separated into 3 groups, a group of fast hikers being the first group, a group of average speed hikers being the second group and a group of slow hikers being the last group. We were a little more than half way done with the hike when we stopped at a little stream to cool down and look at. I was sitting on a fallen tree when I looked into the forest when behind one of the trees was a tall black figure. I thought that I was hallucinating because of dehydration from running out of water or from being tired so I thought nothing of it. On the way down about a quarter of the way, I saw the same thing but closer to the trail. I was now convinced that I wasn’t hallucinating so I was looking around the whole way back down. The night was fine and the next day was normal and I didn’t tell anyone from my school about this and we have another camping trip coming up and I’m not sure I wanna go for fear of running into things like that again.

Wendigo in my dreams

I live in northeast Missouri, I have all my life. I’ve always believed in the paranormal and cryptids and all that, but I had never seen one before. This happened a few years back. I was around 14 or 15 (I’m 18 now) when my mom brought home a Ouija Board. She told me “Do NOT use it in the house!” and I (being the dumb teenager I am) invited some friends over while my mom was out of town and played with it in the bathroom.

It was one of those glow in the dark Hasbro ones which I didn’t believe it would do anything. Nothing happened. The planchette didn’t move on its own, nothing like that. We ended up putting it away. A few weeks later I started having night terrors. It started with a little girl.

Dressed in all white with pitch black eyes. She would move closer and closer to me and when she finally reached for me, I’d wake up in a cold sweat. Unable to move. That dream occurred for about 3 months. When it stopped I thought it was over.

Scraping on the house

Before we start I will tell you a little about myself. My name is Michael and I live in Northern Canada which is a very cold place during Winter. This happened about month ago when I was inside with my friends watching the game. I live in the middle of nowhere in the woods and have no neighbors what so ever. During a night when the snow was pounding down heavily on the roof. I heard a sickening clawing sound on the side of my home I thought I was just hearing things. I continued watching the game with my pals until my friend Joshua decided to go outside for a smoke. He opened the door walked out and closed it behind him. After a while we heard him scream, the scream was so sudden that I almost jumped out of my seat. He almost took the door of its hinges. He sprinted in and slammed the door behind him we thought he was just joking around but his face was pale white. He was crying that he saw something out in the field by the woods. I went outside with my hunting rifle to see what he was talking about and after about ten minutes I saw it a huge tall pale hunched over creature. It looked like a skeleton with skin tightly pulled over its bones and its ribs and spine were protruding from its chest and back. I shot it point blank. It didn’t even flinch and at that moment I ran for the door as I reloaded my rifle. It has been difficult sleep wise but that thing wasn’t human. Not anymore at least.

The 2 Nuns in the woods

This incident happened November of 2018. I am a hunter. I’m 14 years old and I’ve always thought the believing in ghosts is dumb. But this November would change that
I was up at our cabin because it was deer season. I had gotten out in my blind at ab 3 and when it got dark I decided to leave. I walk back from my blind to the cabin, it’s about a half mile walk. I had just turned the corner and I was going to go on this bridge and my cabin was right on the right. As I was approaching the bridge I saw 2 figures just standing right by the bridge. I think it’s my cousins so I shout their name out. No response. I’m really confused so I start walking towards them and I realized these aren’t my cousins. The 2 figures were at least 7 1/2 feet tall. They were in nun clothing but I couldn’t see their face. I started to get a little scared but then they started walking toward me. I freaked out and grabbed my rifle. They stopped. And I stood there for a good 5 minutes thinking what to do. I mustered up the courage to walk past them. As I was right in between them I looked up and saw their faces looking down at me. I passed them and walked ab 3 steps and turned around. They were gone. I would have heard them too because there was snow on the ground. I walked to where they were standing and saw no footsteps.
No one in that cabin knows this story. I know they wouldn’t believe me so I’ve kept this to myself. And now I’m scared of nuns. It doesn’t help that I’m catholic too.

The old man in the forest

This happened a long time ago. I was 12 and in my grandparents village. We had an cow and an Ox. Usually the son of the Bull(usually just 1) took all the cattle to graze and at night he would take them back. Cows know where to go when going home. My grandpa had a male ox and since my father was and adult and he wasn’t there I took the responsibility. Basically my job was to go around the village with the ox trailing after me calling the people to open their doors. Our ox would grunt to call the herd and all the females came out. From then on I had to take them to a clearing up the mountain and then Later take them to the river. It was easy. The animals already knew where they were going. They were calm and our bull was a gentle giant. Ill i did was ride him and have a thin rope on his horns. If any or the females wandered off all I did was call or in rare occasions poke her with a dull stick in the right direction. My grandpa said that if I see a wold(very rare),a boar or a fox I should stay on the ox. Not many animals dare go near an ox herd.

There is a dark part of the forest where it is vary quiet and even the bravest hunters won’t go. It is very slippery and dangerous. They said that even the deer and boar dare not go there. I was forbidden to go there and honestly never wanted to. It was an early morning and everything seemed fine. I was on the Ox going up the mountain. I was glad he let me because it was a hard trek up. I saw that one of the females was wandering off. I followed her and left our ox and the dogs to guide the herd. She went in the forest. I ran to her and got on tying the rope on her horns. I tried steering her away but she continued. She went in the dark part and stopped. I didn’t want to get off in case she ran back and left me there. I heard a crunch and turned.

A very old man was walking towards us. He looked frail with dirty clothes and a long beard. I was scared so I laid on the ox clinging to her not wanting to fall if she ran. Oxen aren’t like bulls. They don’t jump and kick when scared. They either attack with their horns and trample or run. I was ready to hold on no matter what she chose. Our oxen don’t take kindly to strangers before I took them Out I had to go to every house and have the ox owner introduce me to the animal. That way they saw that their owner trusts me and their Herd leader(our ox) trusts me. I knew she would either attack or bolt. But she just stood there. The stranger came to us and petted her on her head whispering something I didn’t understand. He looked at me.His eyes were completely white. Then he turned around and left. He just disappeared in the trees.
