Description of event: My uncles and I were doing a slash piling contract and camping at Fay Lake after work each day. One evening after dinner we lay against a log looking out over the campfire at Fay Lake. My uncles and the dogs had fallen asleep when I was alerted to a noise behind us up on the hill further away from the lake approximately 75 feet. Upon turning to look I saw a large figure near our range teepee I would estimate to be about 7 feet in height. I woke my uncles and the dogs jumped up detecting it and then ran halfway up the hill toward it, then suddenly stopped in their tracks, bellied down, started whimpering, and retreated to us without turning their backs to the figure. After a few more seconds the figure walked off and then back into the timber.
