Moehau Man is not dead!
A startled man contacted me tonight about a sighting of a Moehau Man (or NZ Bigfoot) today on the Coromandel Peninsula while out tramping (hiking). Name withheld.
I’m still trying to make sense of what happened this morning, so bare with me as I will probably sound completely bonkers here.
This morning I was deep in the bush in the Coromandal, middle of fucking nowhere, at least 2.5 hours into my trek. The only people I saw were contractors cutting the bush back on the sides of the gravel road leading into this particular track. No other cars parked in the dead end at the start of the track. I have a habit of hunting rivers for crystals, stones and spending time next to the river deep in the bush away from everything and anything.
This particular walk I ventured about 10 meters off the track to explore the river. I was crouched down, completely silent sifting through stones. Facing the river with my back to the track, which ran parallel with the river, I felt the presence of someone, turning around I saw a black figure walking in the direction of the start of the track (keep in mind I’m 2.5 hours up the track) – I found this odd as there were no other vehicles at the start of the track, so where did this person come from as I know that four hours into this hike the track ends and there’s no other connecting tracks or loop? As they walked away I noticed them brush past a large fern branch, which swung rapidly as they went past it, similar to that old “hold the branch and let it go to hit ya mate in the face” trick.
I stood there for a good thirty seconds almost frozen and consumed with a charge of unknown energy. I thought fuck this I’m heading back to the track and getting away from whatever it was. I kept my eyes on the fern for some reason. When I got back to the track, the fern was at least 13ft above the track and I couldn’t reach and grab it (I’m 6″4 with a arm reach upwards of at least 9ft) which tells me that black figure, I saw walk past and body brushing past the fern, was over 12ft tall.
My instant reaction was to head the opposite direction to the “being”, which was deeper into the bush, but after five steps everything was telling me to get the fuck out of the bush. My guides, my soul, my higher self, my guardians, my intuition, my inner, and everything and anything was screaming at me to get the fuck out of there asap, I went into survival mode and conveniently had just found a Quarts Crystal in the shape of a perfect dagger.
It was a very adrenaline filled dash for the next two hours out of there, and I felt like something was tracking and watching me until the last 15 minutes near the end. At times I thought I wasn’t going to be leaving that bush alive (or at all) or I’d be having the scrap of my life with a 15ft Maero.
The track was mud, complete mud and chaos after the recent storms, so I would of seen any other hikers boot prints leaving the track, there were none. What there were though were giant “Pig Type prints” (which I have photos of), minus the two rear prongs of a boar print; but these prints were larger than my hand and went for about 20 metres and dissapeared.
Still trying to make logic of it, I thought if I go fast enough I’ll catch up to the person and it will all make sense, almost running for two hours I saw nobody.
Driving back down the gravel road leaving, I asked the contractors who were sorting the road sides trees; if they had seen anyone drive or walk out… I was the only person who had passed them all day. The track and road are the only way in and out, by foot or vehicle.
I got home and done some research and found articles regarding Moehau Man or did I see a Maero? Part of me feels it was a multi-dimensional “something” due to the way I felt after sighting it and the way it tracked me without noise.
It’s been six hours later and I still feel “shock” and can vividly see the moment. I feel blessed to of witnessed this entity, obviously by accident, but I also feel extremely lucky to be able.
I won’t be exposing the exact location because humans being humans will more than likely want to hunt, track, trace and do what humans do to anything of the unknown and hurt it for their own gain.
But if anyone has similar experiences or any input, feel free to join the Korero.
At first I thought of it as a person, but the more I thought about it, it was tall, dark, and has a huge “hunch” or curved top of their back, but moved smoothly. I saw it for all of three seconds max through the break in the trees between the river and the track. I can’t 100% confirm head shape or look. But I can 100% confirm it was impossible to be a human due to it size and no sign of anyone else entering or leaving the track I was on.
