That's some top-tier spookage if true. Is there any specific history involving cowboys in that area? Like a mining accident or something?

OK, this happened a couple days ago...I am just now working up the courage to write it out. I am well versed in the creepypasta game, so I am going to make some meta comments first.
1. Yes this really happened, who the fuck will believe me?
2. Yes I plan to go back out and do a follow up soon...when I work up the courage. But I will be back and update you guys.
3. Yes, I am aware of the creatures I may be dealing with, I will discuss my theories more in depth after the story.
4. No, I don’t have any more pics than pic related. Deal with it,

Ok, so I was out for a bit of a hike the other day. I was innawoods alone, first mistake right? Well I enjoy being /out/ alone. I like to have no other noise but the crunch of my boots and the sounds of the trail. I find serenity in solitude with nature. The problem is that the feeling of isolation can get creepy in the right situation. You start to the think about what could happen to you and how long it would take to find you… Solitude is creepy, whats even creepier is when your solitude is broken unexpectedly.

I was maybe a fourth of the way through my hike when I saw that there was a side trail that strayed off into the woods. I like following side trails just to see more of the nature, so I generally explore them a bit. I turned down this trail and walked down it for maybe 100m when I saw pic related. It was up an incline and hidden in the trees a bit. I was curious so I snapped pic related and hiked up to take a look.

As you can see from the pic, this is some sort of cage and it had a flimsy tin roof that was almost all the way off. The weirdest thing about all this was that this was a somewhat big man made object way out innawoods. Who put this out here and why? Upon inspection this thing was a cage with four chambers arranged in a square. The two facing the trail were empty. I heard rustling coming from the other side, I walked around to look at the other chambers. Thats when things got weird.

cont.
>>
>>1126759
On one of the backside cages there was a piece of lumber screwed over the cage door. On this wood was painted the words “medicine man”. I can’t exactly explain why, but I got the impression that this was mocking, kind of like when they put “King of the Jews” over Jesus head on the cross. Then I noticed that there was something at the back of the cage, it looked like a human buried in leaves. Sure enough, the thing laying back there began to move.

A fucking human was back there. I was starting to lose my shit a little bit at this point, and my instinct was to run, but i couldn’t force my body to move. It got up and looked at me. It was a native american, he was real dirty and he was wearing some sort of black war paint. He had no clothes on except some old gym shorts and he was skinny as hell. He started walking towards me. My mind was racing, I glanced at the door of the cage, it was locked with a big heavy lock. As the indian started shuffling across the cage towards me, he also started speaking. His voice sounded like rustling leaves and I couldnt understand any of the words, they were some native language. The last thing I want to note is that one of his feet was deformed, it was covered in black fur and his nails looked like a dog’s toenails.

I couldnt move, I was under a spell. This crusty indian came right up to the wall of the cage and tried to reach through it to grab me, scraping the skin off his fingers as he shoved them through the holes in the cage. He didnt even flinch. Thats when I heard a voice behind me say “He doesn’t want your medicine”. When this was said, the man in the cage recoiled and I snapped out of my trance. I turned to see who was behind me.

cont.
>>
>>1126760
It was two people. A clean looking native and a pale white man in a suit. Imagine Doug from house of cards, except hes wearing a black suit, black fedora, and he has no hair. This guy looked weird. The suit man looked at me and said “It appears as if youve tumbled into into an odd circumstance. You may consider it advantageous to skeedaddle.” This guy talked fuckin weird, and everything he said was monotone. I took this opportunity to run for my life.

When I was down the trail a way I could hear the caged man screaming. Against my better judgement i snuck back to peek at the cage. I could see the clean native using a cattle prod to shock to the caged man and the suit man just stood watching. After a minute of watching, the suited fucker turned and looked straight at me and said “Youre breath is loud and has a particular cadence. Leave here now.” When he said this, I couldnt see his mouth moving and it sounded like he was right next to me. I almost pissed my pants, so i ran for it again. This time I really ran.

I got in my truck and drove home as fast as I could. I haven’t left my house since. I live out in the country. This was all a couple days ago. There has been a shitload of coyote howling at night. I am afraid to go outside, but I am planning to nut up and go back to the cage soon.

cont.
>>
>>1126761
I have had a few days to think about what happened. I think the man in the cage was a skinwalker, it seems to fit the lore. The suit man fits descriptions of men in black, but I haven’t ever heard of them dealing with skinwalkers. What he was doing torturing that thing instead of just killing is a mystery to me. I read up on some skinwalker lore and i feel prepared to face that thing. I don’t think its right to leave it caged and tortured, so Im taking some bolt cutters and im going back. If you guys have any info on any of this it would be greatly appreciated. Ill try to update after I have gone back.

Oh and I only have one picture because I took several, but every pic I took after pic related was distorted and blurry. Of Course.

>>1126759
>>1126760
>>1126761
What I find weird about all this is that they seemingly just kept it in a cage out in the boonies instead of taking it to a more secretive location. Like they either couldn't move it or needed it close to the wilderness for some reason.

do you mean mines as in landmines or mines as in coal, etc mines
>>
>>1127047
Landmines, duh. Government claims they've cleared a lot of terrain but our government is corrupt to the bone so I reckon they're bullshitting, have pocketed the money, cleared perhaps 1-4%, and even that was half-assed work by their crony cousins, so I guess real number is even lower. Plus gypsies and remnants of Serbo-chetniks sometimes steal landmine warning signs, plus chetniks don't even know where they've planted them because they were 1) drunk and drugged almost all the time 2) don't want to tell us obviously + they burned the files.

Guess this is spookier than all else, going /out/ for hunting and thinking whether you'll return with intact body.

Has anyone ever been deep in the woods and hear what sounds like people talking?

I just got back from being in the forest on a heavy rain day, we even have a weather advisory. The trail parking lots were vacant so I had my pick basically because it was pouring out and it was Thursday in the afternoon. I walked about 3 miles in and turned around when my dog perked up as if someone was coming. I flipped my hoodie hood off and lifted my knit cap off my ears and could clearly hear what sounded like someone talking but not forward on the trail but in the trees, couldn't make out any words. It didn't sound like an animal and I wasn't near a stream. It was only for about a minute or so but what got me was my dog heard it. When people are coming I put his leash on so he was kinda waiting for me to leash him up. I've heard talking before but can't figure out what it is. I'm more of it has to be something explainable and not monsters.

I have this quite spooky experience from 2 years ago.

>was /out/ing as usual
>the place where I was hiking on is pretty famous for its spooks
>the moment I arrived at the place I smelled the scent of flowers
>there weren't any flowers around and it's a fucking forest
>asked one of my friends whether he also smelled it or not
>he said no
>okay holy fuck, fucking goosebumps after hearing that he didn't smell anything
>that happened during the day

skip forward to the night

>we decided to walk a little at night(fucking bad choice)
>after walking like few hundred meters, I heard whispers into my left ear.
>it sounded like as if it was directly into my ear and I even felt like a gust of wind blowing into my ear as if someone is whispering to me
>couldn't make out what he or it was saying, like it was a fucking weird language
>we were walking in a column formation so there weren't anyone else beside me
>even if there was a person, I could've felt him but there weren't anyone beside me

told everyone the next day and they pretty much believed it too, and one of my friends even saw something like a light and it was hovering higher and higher up into the sky but only spoke about this the next day.

Did it smell like vanilla?? I live in a heavily forest area and in the forest you basically smell pine sap and top soil. But I have also smelled something that smells like vanilla every once in a while.I'm not sure what's causing it.
>>
I don't believe in any super natural shit but I think it's interesting to think about

What are the best ways I could spook some retards innawoods? I was thinking a scary realistic animal mask or something. But how can I fuck with people without them seeing me? Noises, objects etc.

Dont do it friend.
A lot of people, myself included, carry a firearm in the woods.
You could get killed and ruin and another s/out/'s life.

If you are far enoug hout you can get ravens.
I'm telling you, they LOVE to fuck with people.
They will circle your tent making various ungodly noises, and when you catch them in the act they play innocent.
They are cute, but total assholes.
>>
>>1127302
It was more like a mix of flowers. And no, it wasn't like vanilla. The weird thing is that no one else seemed to smell it, only me.
Smelling flowers in a very weird or haunted place means that a supernatural phenomenon may or will happen according to my culture.

I am the spooky innawoods

Always wanted to see something crazy or supernormal in the bush but shit out of luck. Often do pest control in the Pilliga scrub for years now for a little government contract and for decades there's been stories about it, all the people keep saying 'oh don't go there!' because-
>yowies
>min-min lights
>ufo's
>crazy aboriginals
>ghost lady on the highway
>drop bears... hoop snakes, serial killers etc

I ain't seen shit.

i don't know what the fuck this dude was doing in a national forest at night 400 yards off the trail but it would've probably involved bad things happening to my butthole and me probably not leaving the forest alive

Thinking about it now I was a dumbass for shooting, he might have just needed help , was lost or something but at that time I wasn't taking any chances in the middle of nowhere with a random indian guy.

People like you fucks should not be allowed outdoors.
You see someone else, near a trail and blast out of your tent with a knife, a huge flashlight and a FUCKING GUN, START SHOOTING INTO THE AIR AND RUNNING AFTER THE POOR SOUL. WHAT. THE. FUCK.

You were near a trail, dickhead. You wandered off and set up camp. Some guy was trying to do something similar and happened to stumble upon you. You clearly have no maturity whatsoever and act like a scared little kid.

Reminds me of a friend I sometimes hike with. Cant keep his cool if absolutely anything happens, god forbid he ever gets into a truly serious situation. I think he will just start crying and faint.

This is a true story
>be me, be first time in Iceland
>be into my 3rd week, hiking the highland desert called Sprengisandur
>2 days away from the nearest hut, most psychedelic landscape I've ever been to, gray ruble desert, snow, wind, no shelter, every now and then a little oasis with a spring
>following the old horse route that already the viking settlers used, it is windy as fuck and I spot a oasis in the distance, its the only green thing there is
>walk to the oasis, I could use fresh water and a tea break
>arrive, it is motherfucking beautiful, a small artemisian spring feeds into a sand pool, a small creek runs from it and disapears again after around 50m.
>everything is green and full of pretty flowers, magic place, I drop my pack and grab my kuksa and bottle and go to the spring, fill the bottle and drink a cup, tastes great
>theres a stone, shaped like a throne, perfect to have sit, make tea and be sheltered from the damn wind
>the moment I place my ass on the throne stone the show starts
>acoustic hallucinations, I hear strange voice from really close but can't see shit, I see movement, but only with my peripheral view, lots of shit is going on
>pretty freaked out right now, not sure if food poisoning, lsd flashback from the college days or something else
>pack up, 360 and walk away. I remember saying something like "sorry guys, I didn't meant to, just needed the water and the break, I'll be going now"
>freaked some more because I normally don't talk aloud to myself
>walk some 40km more trough the desert. beautiful, strange, totally uneventful

yeah no, 400 yards is not "near a trail"

and some fucktard dressed in all black with no backpack or gear just wandering around in the forest hundreds of yards from the trail in a multi million acre national park isn't just going to "stumble across" me at fucking who knows in the middle of the night with a flashlight, he knew what the fuck he was doing and that i was there and made the conscious choice to continue approaching my tent after visibly seeing it

retards like you are the ones who end up on fliers and missing persons lists with their families wondering whether you were murdered, attacked by animals or whether you committed suicide

do us all a favor, stay out of the fucking woods, it's not the place for city trash with no common sense
>>
>>1128640
Look at how you acted. You blasted off your tent with shooting into the air.
In the extremely unlike possibility that he was someone dangerous (you have been watching too many movies), get out of your tent calmly and talk to the guy, ffs. You have your gun on you should he try anything.
That would only be reasonable if you were in, for example, a forest know to house people who have escaped from prison, drug smuggling routes, etc.

You were just too scared, unable to think and acted like a scared little kid. Think before you act.

You must be seriously gullible to think someone would have gone to the middle of a national park to kill or rape anyone. Much easier ways to do it, seriously. Do you know of absolutely any recorded case where that happened?
If he was indeed out to do something like that, you bet your ass he wouldn't be so easily scared. Would have gone with a shotgun in hand and very well prepared for resistance, sure as hell would not have been scared so easily.

>>1128842
Been watching too many horror movies pal. Just how gullible you have to be to SERIOUSLY believe Jack the Ripper is out to get you in the woods.


>>1128845
>bear spray
Too heavy. I do pack some pepper spray in case of vicious dogs and yes, in case I meet someone violent. Which is surely not going to happen the way you described, but rather accidental running into some private property with some very angry owners or something like that.

I can't believe you are still insisting someone set out in the middle of a national park, intending to rape or kill you, found you, made no effort whatsoever to hide the fact he was approaching (on the contrary, he was shining his flashlight directly at you), was easily scared when you got out of your tent, despise the fact he was supposedly prepared to rape and kill someone?
Are you so scared and emotional you cannot see it does not add up? Look at the facts man, does that make any sense to you whatsoever?

Don't you think it is much more likely some hiker happened to stumble upon you, walked towards you tent to greet you and just let each other know you were nearby in case anything happened, then got scared shitless when you acted the way you did?

Seriously man, think with your head. I know it is difficult to keep your cool when in that situation, but looking back don't you think the most likely scenario was the second one?

Could be this, as there were no flowers where I was either.

What happens is you walk along and you take a step and smell it and by the next step you don't. It's definitely a plant of some kind but it isn't something that's in the air or wind based. It's bugged me for years. Next I smell it I think I'm going to track it down.

One time I was walking through the woods, heard a weird noise behind me, but when I turned around, nothing was there. OooooOooohhhhh sppooookkkyyyyy

Spoiler alert, 99% of the time the imagination is scarier than real life, it's why the best horror movies don't show the monster up close much. The odd sound, moving bush, eyes shining in the night, the feeling of being watched, the strange animal calls, the sense of unease, all at best leftover from our days as cavemen being hunted by far scarier shit than what roams the earth today. That fear, the "oh shit I better leave" response, is merely part of it, an inbuilt survival instinct because the ones who ignored it usually didn't get to live long enough to pass on their genes. Hell look up a fox call sometime, I remember the first time I heard it I almost unloaded into the woods at 3am. Nowadays I know it's a simple part of nature, and even the most badass fox isn't sneaking into my tent at night to tear out my throat.

Basically I wouldn't worry about it.

That's also why 99% of horror movies don't use a fucking fox as the monster. It's more than likely some otherwordly being with the ability to skin you with its dick.

A cougar scream would be a better example, as far as real life goes though. That shit is 20x scarier.

This is honestly my greatest fear when solo camping. Friends think I'm weird but I sleep with my gun in arms reach in the tent just in case. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper though so it still makes me nervous. Wish my dog hadn't died last year. Having her around made me much more relaxed.

> at this point I'm starting to get a little concerned so I start scanning the treeline
> about 30 yards out into the treeline I can make out the figure of a man standing there looking in my direction
> idk what the fuck this guys doing so I pull out my handgun, and yell over to him asking what he's doing
> I don't get any answer but he moves about 5 yards towards me
> I'm not going to have this guy get any closer so I fire off a round into the air and this causes him to retreat back into the woods
> I quickly packed my shit up and hiked my ass back to my car in total darkness

I have no idea what the fuck that guy was doing or what he wanted but I definitely wasn't sleeping there after that.

However weird shit begins happening around my place. several times when me and my friends would chill on my porch we'd hear something two legged walking through the forest (Mind you its legit 4 feet between the porch and the forest) usually when we heard that shit we'd head back inside cause it was 2spoopy4us. Eventually it gets more agressive, footsteps in the woods would be closer, pick up pace, hell one time we heard it run at us and we all ran inside. Eventually it stopped but only after the last event with it
>>
>>1129421
>one night I have a my two best friends over chilling since i had the whole house to my self
>they're both chilling on the porch drinking and I'm back and forth between the porch and the kitchen making some bomb as chicken

>we start eating and talking just chilling on the porch

> We all look into the woods and we notice this thing
>it was hard to see, not because it was hidden it was like it was hard for my mind to comprehend
>you know that weird feeling when you see something and your mind mistakes it for something else and you realize it? same feeling when seeing this thing.
>It was on all fours, crouched on the edge of the woods, pure white but it looked really weird, like its whole body was made from wooden tendrils wraping around eachother.
>sunken holes where eyes should be
>all 3 of us looking at this thing and then it moves, looking directly at us
>all 3 of us slowly get up and as soon as friend 1 opens the porch door we all sprint inside
> commence locking of every single door and window in the house
> we end up chilling in the living room for the rest of the night and we just convince ourselves we didnt see what we saw

after that all of the weird shit dropped off the map, I don't know what happened, only thing I can think of is the city I live in began demolishing the quarry around the time it vanished, for what ever reason they decided that it was a good idea to turn a flooded stone quarry into a park. Never found out what it is, cause nothing matches the description of what we saw. I'm still alive 2 years later, and I haven't had anything spooky happen since that last encounter.

Sorry guys, I thought he was the one who shot. Indeed, you haven't done anything dangerous, but I don't think you took the best course of action either. I don't see how you think your actions could possibly have been a good idea.
LETS SUPPOSE that he was indeed someone set out to hurt you. You pretty much let him know you had noticed him, if were he armed he would have shot on the spot, or otherwise taken action to hurt you.
The fact that he ran away just shows he did not mean to hurt you. If he did, he wouldn't run away just because you screamed.

Kek, I don't even have an opinion on gun control, and it did not bother me the slightest that someone would bring one while hiking. It does bother me that people who do not have the mental capacity to handle firearms carry them. The dude who did shot could very well have killed some lost hiker looking for rescue.

>>1129509
>plan on trespassing
I know it is a troll but still, I do not plan on trespassing but where I live a lot of proprieties are not marked. Very easy to veer into them if you are on a park or something.
Also, it is very common for the dogs that guard those properties to wander the parks, and they can be dangerous.

Not innawoods, but i did some STALKING when i was a kid. Here's the rundown:
1/2
When i was 12 i went exploring an abandoned, rotten, meth shack that was so moldy nobody even wanted to do meth within. A friend of mine had introduced me to the location so we could play air soft in the buildings courtyard, but eventually we decided that it was time to explore the building.

After entering through a vacant door frame connected to a bathroom, the first thing to notice was webs so thick that i had to clear the door with a stick. The spiders had been living off of flies produced by several dead vermin like possums and rats, old and new corpses. Did the animals stink, who knows. The smell of rotten carpet and wood overpowered everything else, more nauseating than rotten fish. We moved deeper into the house, past the bathroom and into the main room. -Keep in mind, this is only one of 3 abandoned buildings on this property. This room was gross, a blotchy mess of melancholy modern art; black, dark green, red, orange all blending together to form a hideous and wretched carpet. Besides the carpet, nothing else of interest was within this room. Now we could have either left the building, or gone deeper and into the bedroom. Naturally we entered the bedroom to find a mirror about 3 feet tall and 6 feet wide with long dried blood streaked across seemingly intentionally. This was spooky. We didn't bother opening the sliding closet door (i've seen the grunge, i know what's in the closet) Pretty spooky. We called it a night and ended up not exploring the main building for several months.

Now time has passed and the spookyfactor has diminished somewhat, so we would explore the largest and most mysterious building. After entering the door which was definitly not locked, and the window next to the door had definitely already been broken, we were immediately regretful. The smell was 10x worse than the previous building, and there was no light to come through any windows. One thing stood out most of all, the trap door directly ahead of us by the corner of the room. We turned around and noped out momentarily to adjust our shirts for maximum filtration and headed back inside. The room to the right was stank and dark, but uneventful. The next room, to the left of the second room, was just as stank. We had entered the third room with our eyes still adjusting to the low light. I'm sure everyone else was also keeping our vision on the completely dark doorway which led to room four through a black and musky hallway. Out of the corner of my eye i noticed the first furniture in the building and the second red flag. A rocking chair had been placed facing the wall in the verry corner, along with a stool and a glass by its side. Needless to say we didn't enter room 4, 2spoop5me. I headed back to room 1 and made my way to the trap door, one wide of which was already open. With my friends besides me we inched closer and closer, eventually looking into the basement of a building which shouldn't have a basement. After minutes of deciding who is and who isn't a pussy, it became obvious that i would have to be the first one down. We opened the second panel and i began to descend down cement stair into the dark with no flashlight. I saw light, i was looking from under the house out through ventilation/service pannels when i made the ultimate spooky discovery. A teddy bear had been placed upon the wall directly above the wall where the stairs ended and the basement began.

I left, we all left. I never went back and within 1 month the place had been fenced off.

Actually, in defense classes they teach (because it works) that you should only try to pretend you don't see your aggressor if you are not armed and ready to fight them so that you can try to get to a safe area before initiating confrontation which is the ONLY situation where you do that. If you are armed it is best to let your aggresors know you are armed and willing to use force. This keeps rapes, killings, roberies, and more from happening. Someone planning to commit a crime wants the least amount of struggle and fight. Even serial killers and rapists (who enjoy the rush) want to go unnoticed with their crime (obviously) so they are less likely to do anything if you come out guns blazing. The idea that a killer will shoot you if you come out shooting is the dumbest idea one could comprehend. This is not a war zone, you are not trying to be sneaky. It's the same thing as confronting a bear or mountain lion. If you try to hide or run you are dead... but if you stand your ground and look/sound scary aka firing off a firearm you are in the clear. Passive equals death. You aren't thinking clear at all bud.

IF it were a killer and you opened your tent pointing a gun at him that would be the best course of action, yes.
Yelling "go away!" from inside your tent is not. As far as the killer knows you have no weapon on you, are scared as hell and you just gave him time to react while you are still totally unprepared and stuck inside your tent with no way of knowing what is outside.
Were he armed and intending to kill you, no way in hell he wouldn't have shot you on the spot.

Idk what the fuck it was, forest is too small for no one to have not seen it before. But people kill themselves out there, occasional animal attack and a couple murders. It was weird shit man... I've never gone back and still get freaked out when I smell something rotten

The thing shambles out on all 4s and then stood up, not completely erect. Then it rushed into the stream on all 4s again. It was 5 years ago so I don't remember everything. I just remembered being afraid and making a split second decision to charge it with my car.

I think about it from time to time but since I don't talk to my ex anymore and I never told anyone else... I don't have anyone to talk to about it. So I just drink a lot to supress the memory. I suppose it could have been worse. I've read a lot of these skinwalker type stories and it always makes me think

I grew up in Logan County way out in bumfuck WV, I've heard of this thing before. It's called the Yellow Thing.
>>
>>1130516
care to elaborate? that's the most bizarre critter i've ever heard corroborated
>>
I posted almost a year ago, maybe eight months? about my encounter in the New Jersey pine barrens, I tried to find the thread in the archives a few weeks later to copypaste it because I had done a decent job of writing it out and

the OP's pic was black and white and some old stone gazebo-type structure, does anyone happen to know if that one was archived somewhere?
>>
>>1130563
On a phone so I won't type much now, I'll try to come back and go more in detail when I get home from class. The Yellow (Yella, around here) Thing is either a literal creature or an omen of bad times. People have gone hunting with buddies, seen it, and then someone got lost on the trip and never found. There's a lot of abandoned mine shafts around WV, so people could just fall in and never be found it heard though, so idk if it's really a weird werewolf like some people think. I've heard it referenced more often by old timers as an omen. My grandpa survived the Buffalo Creek flood, and said there had been sightings the weeks leading up to it. A couple books about the Hatfield's and McCoys mention Yella Things sightings during the worst parts of the feud, when kids were getting executed and shit. Most descriptions kind of inagine it as a ragged "yellowish" bear with bald patches that are pale and slimy, and dirty dark yellow fur. For some reason I've always inagined it looking like a Yao Guai mixed with the Cheat from Homestar Runner lol, but that's just me. Appalachia is pretty cool and creepy though, I'm a history major so I try to get a lot of local folklore and tales by interviewing the older generations. WV still has a lot of folklore and shamanistic rituals, we've really only been "civilized" in the last couple generations, my grandpa is in his early 70s and said there weren't paved roads or sewage or phones well into the 1950's.

>Didn't tell them any details about it as they are complete assholes

It didn't sound like any frogs or birds or anything. It doesn't bother me much anymore, but I had trouble being in the dark or alone for about a year after that. I've tried to remember the last sound that made me bolt and I really can't no matter how hard I try

>took pitty in this guy since he was a closeted gay in Ukraine and they do fucked up shit to homos there
>asked him why he couldn't just stay in Finnland but apparently he's got a daughter
>the next morning he gave me a bottle of self made wine sap, told me to have a nice hike and went his own way
>two days later the scary stuff started to happen
>always had the feeling like I was being followed
>hear distant footsteps all the time but it could be explained away easily as animals
>some time I heard somebody faintly sneazing like 500m away

>the same night I built my tent and drank half a bottle of the tree wine to ease my nerves
>like 10 minutes later I felt light headed and nauseous

so this fuck roofied the wine and followed me around for a few days just to steal my stuff.

>As we walk the base of a cliff, an empty half-gallon jug falls from above, just missing me. Can't see top; figure it's kids
>Get to climb, stash gear & head up. Me first, friend seconds

>One dude points us down the trail. Start pulling rope, but dude grabs my hand & again points down the trail
>Head out, leaving all gear behind. One of the dudes heads out in front of us
>Big ol white POLICE lettering across his back

As we got to the trail head, there were cops EVERYWHERE. Some local had shot his pregnant girlfriend, and they'd found his carjacked van in the trailhead lot. SWAT teams were searching the woods & expected a gunfight. They held us in the lot for a couple hours, until finally they let us head back down & collect our gear, with an escort. Turns out the guy had jumped, and the empty jug was probably a 'test throw'. He made a real mess, but thankfully chose a spot a hundred feet up-trail from our gear.

Ok, I made it back out to the skinwalker cage. Time for an update.

So when I went back the cage was still there, but no one was around. I took some pics though, and I'm convinced what I saw last time was real. This is the cell that held the skinwalker, the lock has been removed, so I could look inside. The cell next to it was locked with apparently no one inside. Weird. Also, the lock in the next door cell was shiny and new even though the cage is rusted out.

I will show you a pic of the floor of the cage next, what I found surprised me.

damn picture was posted sideways...

So I looked on the inside of the skinwalker cage... and theres fucking bedding on the ground. I didn't notice it the first time, probably because the skinwalker was buried under leaves. This proves someones been staying in it. Obviously it could be some hobo, but I am not anywhere near civilization and I have never seen any other evidence of hobos.

Ok so that was all the evidence I had, the bedding and the hole. I'm pretty spooked right now because I know I wasn't dreaming. I heard every single rustle in the underbrush as I walked out of there, and now I'm holed up in my house considering buying a gun.

This last pic is another curiosity I found not far from the cage that I didn't see the first time. Obviously this trailer has been there for a long time... but I wonder if that was how they got the cage out there in the first place.

Full disclosure, I haven't posted all my pics, I have a few pics left that just show the cage, in case I ever have to prove that I'm the same guy who posted everything else.

Today I was innawoods and just hiking around and I heard a loud tree knock. It happened right in front of me in a very large tree. I stopped and looked up to see if a branch may have broke and was slapping the side of it. While I was looking up it happened again. I have heard sap freeze and thaw in trees but that is more like a "ping" This was a "WHACK". I looked up the side to see if the tree was cracking or splitting but didn't see anything. Now I need to figure out what causes it. I do know that if this happened but wasn't close to me I would have probably freaked out.
>>
>>1131271
No path from the trailer. It has saplings growing through the middle of it, so it hasn’t moved in a while. There are several little trails in the area, I followed most of them, didn’t find much. There was a lot of the tin roof material from the cage all over and pretty far from the cage and lots of tin cans and other food trash

I know for a fact a book about the Hatfield's and McCoys written by a family member mentions it, but beyond that I think it may just be local. Appalachia has some dope monsters and folklore though, look up the Crooked Man. There's a Hellboy comic about him.

I don't know if y'all have ever heard a boar roaring, but it is creepy as fuck, especially when its dark and the boar is about 6 feet long(from the front hoof to the back if it's strung up.

I used to walk around the woods and the railroad tracks in the dead of night when I was in middle School/high school. Someone asked me why I'm not scared that I'm gonna stumble on some creepy guy or something, and I tell them that I'm that creepy guy that people tell about seeing in the woods.

For example:

>Be me, sophomore in high school at the time
>Enjoyed walking around the rail road tracks at night.
>They go right next to some redneck house
>I actually know them a little bit, but I don't ever make noise or use a flashlight going by their house because I know that they'll probably shoot me before I can tell them who I am
>They're having a big redneck get-together
>Considering sneaking and stealing some booze
>Nah lol, I'll just stay quiet. I pass by them they don't notice me,
>Hear twigs snapping
>Probably just a skunk
>It wasn't a skunk

There's a haunted house in Barboursville WV. I have a story about it because I grew up there but it really isn't that creepy, but it did happen. I'll type it out if anyone is interested.
>>
>>1134982
yea share!
>>
>>1134987
Okay, sorry it took so long, I typed it all out on my phone and then hit a button wrong and had to re-type fucking half of it. Bville was the site of a decent sized Civil War battle because a small river that's easy to cross runs through it, meaning the armies didn't have to deal with crossing the Ohio which is a lot bigger. So they fought over this bridge literally 30 yards down the road from what was the tiny vilage of barboursville (it's still small, but suburban sprawl has essentially made it the outskirts of Huntington, which is a city of 50,00). The battle was pretty brutal, and back then Bville was far enough from an sort of civilization that any sort of wound was a death sentence. Well apparently a 13 year old boy who was a son of the Millar family in town ran off to join the Confederates in the fighting. He took a shot to the gut. His family found him on the battlefield and took them back to his bedroom in the attic of their house to die. Flash forward 200 years, and my parents get divorced so my mom and I move in with my grandparents right across the street from the Millar House when I'm 12. The house is still residential but is on the historic record or maintained by the local historic society or something like that so there can't be any major renovations done to it. All the kids in school tell creepy stories about the house. An elderly couple live there alone, and are too weak to climb the stairs anymore so they just stay on the ground floor. But people swear that sometimes late at night you can see a pale face peeking out the attic window, which used to be the boys bedroom. They also say that any time you move the furniture around up there, the next day it will be moved back to the way the boy had it when he lived there. I was a huge pussy, I was the kid who had to change the channel if a commercial for a horror movie came on, so I'm terrified by this.
>>
>>1135007
Con't.
One night it starts snowing and I'm excited that I may get out of school, so I look out my window to see how bad the street is getting and THERE'S THE FUCKING FACE looking right at me. I freak out and stay the night with my grandpa, I tell him my room got too cold or some shit. A few nights later I muster up the courage to look out the window again, and I see him again. He was looking up the street towards the bridge where the battle was, but after I'm looking at him for a few seconds he turns and locks eyes with me. He just looks like a normal kid, not spooky or ethereal or anything like that. But like I said, only an old couple live there so it has to be the ghost. Maybe a week later I'm on Christmas break, so I'm staying up all night and playing Gamecube. About 2 a.m I pas out. I wake up on alert, like someone's in the room with me. I click my lamp on and look and he's fucking standing at the foot of my bed just staring at me. His belly is all bloody and has a chunk missing out of it, and he's wearing old-timey Mountaineer clothes. I scream and run past him. When my grandpa calms me down and makes me go upstairs with him to check my room, the boy's gone. My grandpa convinces me I jsut had a bad dream because of the stories the kids at school told, and I calm down and go to sleep. The next night, it happens again. I'm too afraid to move this time, I just lock eyes with him for what feels like hours until I pass out.He doesn't look angry or mean, just sad. The third night, sure enough he wakes me up again. This time manage to choke out, "Are you okay?". And he starts sobbing. He's not making any noise at all but just bawling his eyes out staring at me. After maybe 20 minutes of this I blink and he's just gone. Now my family is super religious, so on the 4th night when he shows up I ask him if he is scared. He nods his head with tears in his eyes. .
>>
>>1135011
Con't.
I tell him it's okay, he just did what he thought the right thing to do was and he could go to heaven if he wanted to. He stops crying when I say that, and just looks at me inquisitively. I have a Bible in my room and I get it out and read to him some, and he starts smiling. I pass out holding an open Bible, my family ws porbably proud as fuck when they woke me up the next morning lol. I never saw him again. My brother is in middle school and says kids still tell spooky stories about the Millar House, but I've personally never seen anything since. I'm not arrogant enough to think I convinced a ghost to go to heaven or some shit like that, but I think maybe he was just scared and confused and wanted another kid to act normal around him. It was definitely the weirdest thing that ever happened to me, and I've never told anyone about it even my wife. It kind of helped me get over being afraid of everything (I think I was fucked up from the divorce, my dad was abusive so I was always on edge never knowing when the next ass beating would come), and hopefully I helped him too. If I ever saw him again I'd like to think it would be like seeing an old friend.

It was a witches raven. She was mocking you. Whatever made the screams were another of her beasts, a Familiar perhaps.
She's out there, up in the mountains, in her witches lair . Like that hut in the movie The VVitch. You probably got too close to where she lives, and she was going to take you out one by one and fucking cook you.

Good thing you left.

This isn't really innawoods, but I grew up in a semi-rural area. So we have about an acre of land that's fenced off, then one of our neighbors had about the same, and beyond that was the county's land trust.

Anyway, a few years back we started hearing this really strange noise. I never saw anything, just heard the damn thing. Imagine a short yell/shout that's almost high pitched. That's about the best I can describe it, I don't know what else to say.

I've thought maybe some fucked up bobcat or mountain lion, and we have wild turkeys in the area and they can make some weird noises.
>inb4 skinwalker
It's moreso the thought of not knowing what it is that freaks me out, and I don't know if I believe in that stuff 100%. Anyway, it's just an unsettling noise that gives off a bad vibe

I had 200 acres of my childroon ruined by an out-of-towner who bought it all up and built a disgusting 5000sq ft mcmansion right in the middle of it. This also ended the farm that had been in constant operation on the hill for over 300 years.

Skinwalkers aren't our enemies. Well they are but they want the same as we do. They're protecting nature. Nobody wants to live somewhere that's haunted by a skinwalker, which prevents people from settling there. We both want unspoiled nature. The only downside is that we're just humans to them, so they see us as a threat as well. They can be reasoned with though. Apparantly if you make it clear to one that you will leave and never come back they might let you leave.

It was not, you've never been around ravens. They do things like this a lot. try going outside.

If a sasquatch charges you, you need to shoot it in its eye sockets. Its chest is too thick. Never run. They smell like wet horse/dog, sulphur, rotten eggs. Carry a powerful led flashlight, they will stop charging if it's shone in their eyes. Please stay safe
