Many years ago my hubby and I were out hiking with a friend through a part of the Daniel Boone National Forest in the north eastern part of Kentucky. It was a really beautiful late Spring day when we were all wandering through looking at the various species of plant life, and occasionally getting a glimpse of some animal life in the area.

Let me give you an idea of this history of Kentucky before I go any further with my story. First of all, the name Kentucky comes from at least a couple of native American Indian dialects. Can-tuck, or Can-tuck-ke, which means “the Dark and Bloody Ground”. NO native tribes ever lived in the Dark and Bloody ground. This is/was the land where spirits and super-natural creatures dwelt.

Of course, when the Europeans came, all they saw was a very fertile and abundant land rich in natural resources and dismissed the various legends as superstitious nonsense. The various tribes that lived in the surrounding areas, that would later become the states of Tennessee, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and Missouri, would hunt and gather in the area, but they would not live there.

Now, back to my tale. We were meandering through this particular area spending the day leisurely taking rest breaks, chatting about various happenings going on in the world and our everyday lives, and stopping to have our packed picnic lunch. We would occasionally come across raccoon tracks, deer tracks, and various bird tracks in the muddy areas as we hiked. As we spent the day meandering down the Sheltowee trail, and occasionally stepping off for a break, or to check out a plant or item of interest we would notice, we encountered nothing unseemly or out of the ordinary, until we headed back that is.

As the day progressed to well past the noon hour and began to make it’s way towards setting we decided to head back towards our vehicles while we still had about 4 hours of sun and day light left. We made our way back along the path we had walked and about a mile or so from the parking area we came across some tracks that were quite out of the ordinary. So, we began to look closely at them and follow them.

Our friend, who I’ll refer to from this point on as C., had some experience with tracking and knew about every track that could be made by the wildlife in the area as he had spent a few years working for the Forestry service. He’d never seen anything like these before. And, since we had spent quite a lot of time camping and hiking ourselves making sure to have field guides for identification purposes most of the time we knew a lot of the types of animal tracks too. we were as stumped as he was.

The tracks were huge hoof prints, much bigger than a deer could make. They were bigger than either C.’s hand, my hand, or my husband’s hand with C. having the largest hands of the three of us. The tracks were very deeply embedded into the ground, over an inch deep. And, the pattern of the hoof prints was very odd because while they were made by an animal that had quite obviously been running through the muddy area, and the soft ground, they weren’t leaving the usual pattern made by a four legged creature. The further we followed the tracks the more obvious the evidence in front of our eyes became, however unlikely or incredible it seemed. The tracks were being made by something running on TWO legs. The tracks weren’t there when we passed through earlier on our hike either, so they were very fresh.

The hairs on the back of my neck stood up as I realized what this meant, and apparently the same thought had occurred to my hubby and our friend – this thing could still be very close. We had spent around an hour or so following these tracks trying to figure our what had left such big, deeply embedded, tracks in the ground and now we were thinking that maybe this wasn’t such a good idea after all. The evidence showed that whatever had made these tracks was very big, and probably weighed well over 200 lbs. Now, our precious daylight was waning and we had wandered away from the main trail for about a distance of a mile. We all decided to show a quick set of heels and made for the parking area and our cars.

For next several days we discussed our little adventure. My husband I are well educated in the “myths” and legends of classical history, and the rural history of Kentucky, and we pondered, read, and discussed about just what could have made such tracks. We found no descriptions of normal animals that could have made such tracks.

So, what made these tracks? We knew from legend and tales of such a creature that could have left such tracks, but saytrs aren’t suppose to exist – are they?

Kris Williams (Ghost Hunters) Q&A – Part 2

Question to the ghost hunters out there.?

I have read lots of comments from people who say that they go on ghost hunts. So I am curious as to how many are serious investigators and how many just do informally for fun. So I have a multi-part question:

1. What exactly do you do?
2. What kind of places do you go and do you get permission from the owners?
3. What equipment do you use?
4. How do you analize your data?
5. Do you give feedback to the owners?


My team and I are paranormal research. i am owner and i fund the entire investigation. I won’t accept donations or outside funding. We are serious about what we do.

1. We investigate paranormal activity and we gather and study the results. we do not charge anyone as we are only doing research and to help those who come to us seeking answers or help.
2. We go to any place that is asked of us to go within a reasonable distant unless things are slow in which case we may go just about anywhere in the US. In the case we are not asked to investigate but have been told of activity we always get written permission to be there.
3. Equipment
EMF detectors and recorders
IR laser thermometers
K-port air probe thermometers
Digital voice recorders
IR motion detectos
Air quality monitors
35 mm digital cameras
DVR cams
IR night vision cams
IR night vision glasses
Mini DVD recorders
4. We analize all our data in a photo lab we have set up all done with date and time set recorded. We then may go back if we have questionable data to see if we can recreate what we can not explain. depending on what we caught and couldn’t debunk we may set of equipment again to try and gain more data setting up a given area with more equipment from different angles.
5. We always give feedback if we are called in to investigate rather we catch anything or not. many times we just go back to explain what it was rather then paranormal.

I been doing this for over 30 years and i do not do it for any other reason then personal. I do not talk people into it as everyone who calls us do most of the talking until the investigation is over. many believe paranormal investigators are con men but we do not con anyone people come to us when they are scared or confused as where they can not call the police and be taken seriously. many times we do not find anything that isn’t normal but it is nice that these scared people have someone who will take the time and find out answers for them and set their minds at ease. Try telling someone who is scared that it’s just normal stuff nothing to worry about and don’t give it any thought and you will be ok does not show them you even care and they are back to being scared and confused that is why we do what we do.
