The harrowing encounter was recently recalled during an interview on the 'Sasquatch Chronicles' podcast.
Does an unidentified species of intelligent, bipedal hominid roam the forests of North America ? One man, who goes only by the name of 'Bo', certainly seems to think so.
The anonymous hunter recently spoke out on the popular cryptozoology podcast about an encounter during which he claimed to have had the creature in his rifle sights for the better part of 20 minutes.
It happened back in 1999 when he had been hunting in South Carolina with his father.
"Immediately, when I seen it, it was so black that I thought it was a bear," he recalled.
"I put my gun up on the shooting rail and scoped it. It was going down to the ground and stands up real tall - like a person."
Initially believing it to be someone in a Ghillie (camouflage) suit, he attempted to use the scope of his rifle to look for evidence of boots, gloves or other identifying items of clothing, however he was unable to see anything to indicate that what he was looking at was a human being.
"It looked like something you seen in an army movie when snipers crawl through the dirt," he said.
"This thing had big shoulders and a big back."
A short time later, the mysterious figure walked over to a tree, scratched itself against the bark and at one point even came within 40 yards of him before disappearing into the brush.
Despite having a clear shot, however, the hunter chose not to fire on his target.
