A Boone, N.C., man vacationing in Henderson County says he spotted – and videoed – what he believes to be a Bigfoot.
You’ll have to be the judge on this one. Eric Walters just asks that viewers keep an open mind.
Walters said he was renting a cabin along Buck Forest Road with his wife and another couple, and he shot the video on his phone.

An official with an Asheville vacation rental company, however, said Friday the video was shot at a rental cabin at 41 Gold Anchor Lane, off N.C. 9 south of Black Mountain, not in Henderson County.
Gay Weber, chief marketing officer with Carolina Mornings Inc., said the company’s rental sign is clearly visible in the video. Weber also said he’s familiar with the site because he’s been there.
“I’m flattered that even Bigfoot knows that Carolina Mornings is the best vacation rental company in Western North Carolina,” Weber joked Friday.
He said the company has been getting a lot of questions from people who watched the video and saw the rental sign.
“My inbox is blowing up,” Weber said.
He said he has never seen Bigfoot on Gold Anchor Lane, “but it is a great cabin in a beautiful location.”
Walters could not be reached for comment about Weber’s assertion.
