Steve Winn report 01/21/2017

Since Tom was out in the field last night, and on little sleep today, I figured I'd step up to the plate and give a report on today's investigation.
January 21, 2017 at our bread and butter location:
We haven't been in there since last spring, and it didn't disappoint today. Tom, his son Jacob, and I went in at about 2pm. Rodney was working out of town, and we was waiting on Steve Cornell, but his boyfriend forbid him from going or something.
On the way in Jacob noticed an old junked refrigerator had been moved. It's been there for years...always in the same spot and orientation, but it wasn't like he saw it before. At the gifting area on the crown of the hill, the famous green turtle stuffed animal was gone, and the sock puppet that was last seen shoved into a Y branch at 12 feet high was no where to be found either. The rubber chicken had reappeared, carefully placed in a tree at about 6 foot. There's a long history with the rubber chicken, turtle, and sock puppet disappearing and showing back up at this particular spot. This is also an area where we leave food treats. We made our way in deeper on the other side of the crown. The fallen leaves were thick, but the ground was very soft from the rain we had this week....so we're really looking down before we step.
Right on the old logging road headed down the hill, Tom saw it plain as day. A juvenile footprint in soft ground. The heel is very well defined, and toes are there...nice little left flat foot. Measured at 5.5" x 3" which is right in proportion with larger prints. There's something with little flat feet walking around barefooted in an area where larger flat feet of similar proportion have been casted. This is within 100 yards of Tom's best, up close sighting and the same place where Tom and Rodney had a bluff charge several years ago. Close by was a collection of limbs and sticks stacked within a stand of cedars. We tried to debunk this as dead fall, but it was pretty obvious they were placed. We saw several X's throughout the day that couldn't be reasonably explained either.
On the way down the backside of the hill, Jacob found one of our little chickens left behind at the gift g area in the spring. The little chicken is just a small squeeky toy that sounds like a crow call. It's a small version of the rubber chicken. It was right in the middle of the logging road, and was there for quite some time. It was a good find...located approx 100 yards from where it was last seen. Along the way down the hill, we spotted a 30 foot long by 5" diameter limb thay was perfectly balaned in the Y of a tree. We could not debunk this as dead fall because it would have snapped in two because it would have had to fall from at least 40 feet up and wpuld have snapped upon impact. Upon further investigation, it had obvious signs of being lying on the forest floor. We tried everything possible to debunk, was is was so obvious this limb was placed there. We proceeded down to the end of the small ridge like we always do. There's a very high dollar tree stand at the ridge point that was abandoned after the user got spooked several years ago. They won't even go back to get it....I don't hunt, but it's very high quality and makes for a good observation point.
Along the way between the hill crown and the end of the small ridge, we caught a rock clack, and a knock. We stayed at the end of the ridge for a spell just kind of taking it in. While discussing another strage tree structure, a grunt like sound sound came in from the adjacent ridge to the left....it was close...the next ridge is fairly visible this time of year. Less than 1000 yards.
We made our way out from there with polly 30 minutes to spare before dusk. Jacob and I totally felt like we were being watched on the way out....I kept looking behind us. This place is spooky...day or night.
We got back to our trucks just before dusk...with a little time to spare. We hadn't seen each other in a while, so we was just standing around reviewing the days adventure and catching up a bit. We were maybe a quarter mile from where we just came, and BAM....a big, loud growl like howl came in from where we just left. Dude, we swung out heads at each other like....wow! It was powerful! A few minutes later, another howl, and a small pack of coyotes (maybe 4 or 5) kicked in. Something was going down where we just left 30 minutes prior. Sounded like one was hurt, and the others were trying to scare something away. There was another howl from a ridge over...pretty faint, and they all stopped.
That first howl was close and powerful. The other two was a little further out...but something shut those coyoyes down.
We try to just give you our evidence and let you make your own oponions.
Great day back in the old school area.

August 31 1830

Received this from a dear friend Dated August 31 1830 from the National Journal Washington D.C.  In it is an article which states (Some of the papers have contained an account of an enormous beast. which made it appearance recently in Kentucky, whose roaring could be heard at a great distance and whose voracious appetite was such to give the alarm to the farmers for the safety of their cattle.)

Shelby county KY 2009

On January 9 2017 I received a email and a contact number from a gentleman who resides in Ohio but once live in Shelby county Kentucky in 2008- 2011. After contacting the gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous (name on file) He began to tell me what his family and himself experienced while living in the Cedarmore area of southeastern Shelby county. (this is his own words)  He began to tell me that during the spring 2009 one evening with his family and several friends they had built a fire and was setting around and enjoying the night and around 11:00 we started hearing what appeared to be something in the distance walking around, being surrounded by dense woods everyone dismissed it as deer several hours later after things started winding down we started to pack up that's when  I noticed a figure in the low fire light just inside the tree line ( he stated that the figure appeared to be around seven foot in height and from the out line very broad )as if it was just watching us. Every time when we would try to approach it would disappear in to the woods and then we would have objects thrown at us. Then when we was making it back to the house we could hear it moving along side us at times trees could be heard breaking. after returning to my house and everyone had left . I have to house dogs that cant wait to be let out but that night the two dogs would not leave the house that night. He also stated that several times during the time that he lived there he or a family member would catch a glimpse of a huge figure on the property on a couple of occasions there were we heard some strange howls and large objects thrown at the house during the night  and in 2011 I received a job offer in Ohio and couldn't wait to move. I asked why wait so long to come forward and why did you contact me  he replied really who would believe me and I contacted you because I saw you on TV.  I talked with the gentleman for almost three hours on the phone getting more information on the occurrences that happen during the time he lived there the location in Shelby county name of the owner of the property and contact information of the witness he stated that when or if we get permission to investigate the property he would like to join us to get some understanding on the events. I will be doing a follow up on this report due to the fact that I took notes I took during the interview.
