Wood Man is a hairy bigfoot-like wild man of the forest who moves silently and rarely reveals himself to humans. Frequently he steals things or causes other minor mischief. In some stories Wood Men capture Athabaskan children or pursue humans and attempt to mate with them. In some tribes, such as the Ahtna, there is said to be only one Woodsman, who is an immortal mythological character. In other tribes, Woodsmen of both genders are said to exist. They may overlap with Bush Indians in the folklore of some communities, but most Athabaskans consider them different beings– Bush Indians are more aggressive, more humanlike, and live in tribes, whereas Woodsmen are solitary, stealthy, and do not kill people.
