My Bigfoot Encounter - Lon Strickler
I was fly-fishing for redeye and smallmouth bass on the south branch of the Patapsco River approximately 1 mile downstream from Rt.32 near Sykesville, Maryland. After a few minutes or so, I heard the dog barking and growling. I figured that he stirred up a deer, but when I looked at the direction of the ruckus I noticed a dark hairy creature bobbing up and down in the thickets. I stopped fishing and moved closer to the riffles to get a better look and noticed that the dog stopped barking. Suddenly, I heard a loud yelp from the dog and the creature stood up. The best I could tell is that this “thing” was about 7-8 ft. tall and had dark matted hair. I could only see the body from the chest up because the rest of the body was obscured by the weeds and thickets. I stood completely still and could hear a series of “tick” sounds while observing this creature walk slowly through the thickets towards the woods. I started to follow it and in the meantime I noticed a strong musky scent that reminded me of fox urine.I had waders on so I could only move so fast in an attempt to get a better look at this creature. It simply moved too fast for me. I decided to go back to my car, drive into Sykesville and make an immediate report to the authorities.The local police told me to go back to the area and they would meet me there. The State Police officer told to get back in my car and leave immediately because they didn’t know how dangerous the situation was.

Lon Strickler is a cryptid reseacher and intuitive who writes and mentors on a variety of fortean subjects.
Lon was born and raised in Hanover, Pennsylvania and later relocated to the Baltimore, Maryland metro area in 1976. At an early age, Lon realized that he had the ability to sense spiritual energy and found this useful in the field when conducting investigations. Most of his early field work concentrated on spiritual activity at historical locations in Maryland and Pennsylvania, in particular locations where traumatic events have occurred.
In 1981, Lon experienced a "Bigfoot" encounter near Sykesville, MD while fishing on the south branch of the Patapsco River. As a result of the incident, he included cryptid studies as an important part of his research. He continued to work regularly in the field until 2001, when physical limitations forced him to scale back.
Lon started the 'Phantoms and Monsters' blog in 2005, which has steadily grown in popularity and read daily by thousands of paranormal enthusiasts, investigators and those seeking the truth. Lon was a co-host on 'Beyond The Edge Radio' from 2010-2014. In 2014 Lon and Sean Forker founded 'Arcane Radio' in which they both host.
Lon's research has been featured on hundreds of online media sources. He has also been a guest on several radio broadcasts, including 'Coast to Coast AM' and featured on Destination America's 'Monsters and Mysteries in America' television show.
