This story takes place in Idaho back in 1980.
Two fishermen were heading back to their truck when they saw something big step out onto the trail in front of them.
The men were unsure if what they were seeing was a deer, bear or something else. As if the being sensed it being observed, it turned around to face them. The men claimed it had bright fluoesant green eyes and was 8 feet off of the ground.
They took off in the opposite direction, but the creature followed them. They tried to drive it off by banging sticks together and yelling at it, but the thing remained unmoving, standing in observation of the men.
The men never said if the creature had fur, but these glowing green eyes remind me of Stan Gordon’s book, “Silent Invasion” where green eyed, and red eyed bigfoot were commonly spotted during a u.f.o flap in Pennsylvania. Some were even reported to have exited these landed crafts leading to speculation that Bigfoot might actually be an extraterrestrial being.
