What The Heck Was That?

What The Heck Was That?

Every year my boyfriend Tad goes squirrel hunting the first few days of the season in Ritchie County. I always meet him there for the weekend. His best friend Joe had a farm on top of Oil Ridge. Joe has passed on, but his son still allows Tad to...
Unearthly Beasts

Unearthly Beasts

I've not encountered any of the strange beasts I discuss herein, but I think their legends warrant further investigation. Beyond the realm of ghosts and outside the classification of man-apes, encounters with strange creatures have been reported across the Mountain State. These bear or dog-like creatures seem to belong to...

Hello, My name is Dwayne. I am 31, married, father of two and probably the most skeptical person around. I can usually find some reasonable explanation for ghosts, UFO's etc.., but I heard something when I was thirteen that scared me more than anything ever had before or since....
Sheepsquatch

Sheepsquatch

I grew up in Gallipolis, across the Ohio River from Point Pleasant. In high school I found an old scrapbook of my mother's with several dozen clippings on the Mothman: I was fascinated that something "neat" had happened so close to the sleepy little town I loved, and I...

Between the summer of 2001 and 2002, we would hear Bigfoot occasionally howl on the hillside here at our Cabell County home. There was even one encounter of him coming down to our mobile home and slapping the side of it. Bigfoot hit the trailer so hard; it shook...
What Followed Me?

What Followed Me?

In the 1950's I often went to my relative's in Wirt County to visit on the week-ends. The procedure was to drop them a post-card early in the week saying I would take the Greyhound bus to the stop where they picked me up. I did exactly that one week...

Logan Bigfoot Seen

I had walked down to the game room about five minutes below my house (which is on a hill up against a mountain). Around 11-11:30pm, as I started walking back home, I heard some kind of a loud noise like a woman screaming. I spotted something on the mountain...
The Picnic

The Picnic

Alongside the New River near Fayetteville an old picnic table is rotting, becoming overgrown with moss and weeds. You can barely still see it, even if you wanted to. Even if you wanted to enjoy an outdoor meal with your family on a fine August day. You might have...
Unidentified Footprints

Unidentified Footprints on the Roof

While driving home one night in Glen Jean, WV, I noticed two shiny eyes in my headlights on the side of the road. As I approached closer, my headlights hit what I can only describe as a black fur covered ape-like animal. It was crouched over on the side...
