Sighting From the Past With Warning

Guest Editor-Blogger: Ann
#105 Archive Section
I really enjoy reading about bigfoot sightings on this Bigfoot Ballyhoo. It’s so refreshing to have information without all the foul language so many allow on their sites. I never disagree with anyone's views on bigfoot but I’ll make one exception on the article below on the color of bigfoot changes their demeanor.

He states that only the dark ones are dangerous. Not true. In 1960 I was chased by a yellowish colored one and darn near got it. I had accidentally got in between her and a youngster. She chased me, threw a huge chunk of wood, and literally raised all hell until I finally got out of there by running over a mile from the sighting area.

 It scared me so bad it was 13 years before I went camping again. I was taking a morning walk with my dog when she appeared from a steep ravine and chased me off. This was at Laird Lake in Curry County in southern Oregon. I know now she was just protecting her young but still people need to understand these creatures are completely wild and can be dangerous if the situation is right.


Thank you, Ann. I wish more people would be honest about how scary these bigfoot encounters can be. Best regards, Linda

Thanks ...

I really don't believe this is a true statement and I'll explain why. I have had 3 encounters and each time, either the Bigfoot had been staying within seeing distance, like almost a stalk [stalking me], watching me to see what I am doing and very curious, or the one terrifying encounter, where the Bigfoot charged out of the woods, coming to within 50 feet from me, like he was protecting his territory.

All 3 could have gone the opposite direction and avoided any sighting at all, but yet their curiosity got the best of them. When in the woods you can hear vehicles going down logging roads, people camping or logging operations, for miles in all directions, why would they not go an opposite direction in order not to be seen

I believe that the majority of sightings are from juvenile Bigfoots, whose curiosity has got the best of them, or an adult bigfoot, whose young one is on the other side of the road, from where they are seen. If we can hear noise in the woods, and get an uneasy feeling about our surroundings, I believe they have a ultra sensitive sense of hearing and seeing and could avoid detection by human beings if they wanted to.

I also believe [that] there are 2 different types of this creature: the lighter colored bigfoot, whom is docile and curious, with whiter eye color and the more aggressive darker colored ones with the dark eyes or red eyes, who I believe is capable of harming a human being. I have looked both types in the eyes and thought I was a dead man when the darker one came out of the woods and charged me, stopping to let out a roar that in all my 50 years in the woods, all over this country, I had never heard before and after this encounter.

My fiancée will not even get out of the car in the woods anymore after that, and we used to pick mushrooms commercially, without a fear in the world. I had two very hard working Mexican workers right behind me that day that ran to the truck and never would go back.

So to answer your question, they can hear you coming for miles, or camping, chopping wood for campfires, laughing and talking which travels for miles, and could go the opposite direction if they wanted to or stay hidden until you drive by, as 90% of drivers are looking straight ahead when driving─not side to side.


Thank you for such an in depth and experienced opinion. When ‘science’ finally stamps bigfoot real these are the type of experiences that will prove invaluable in  research. (My opinion) ... Linda Newton-Perry

Having a grand day, searching for bigfoot!

Well... Searching for the animal's
tracks, anyway. I don't expect to
see a bigfoot. I believe they are
just too good at staying away from
humans. When one is seen, it has
made an error, a mistake. 

What do you think?

Bigfoot Sighting

Guest Editor-Blogger: Delores Stone
(More on Weatherly Creek, Oregon)

This was told to me in 1948. Eric Stone of Collins and Stone Road Construction (company active 1939 - 1970) was one of the first people to start pushing roads into the Scottsburg Ranger District. He and his partner Bob Collins pushed CCC road 132 (Weatherly Creek) in 1945 thru 48.

On one of the days (date not known to me) Eric sighted what he called a giant ape man near the 7 mile marker. The ape man was drinking water out of a stream. Eric said the ape man was of immense size and ran off with great speed. Over the course of a month Collins and Stone both had repeated encounters with several of the ape men.

Eric recalled some of the apes were smaller than others and some looked to be female and others male. His vivid description of them leaves no doubt in my mind they were Sasquatches. These two men had never heard of sasquatch or bigfoot. Calling them apes seems to be quite common back then. Collins believed the apes could be a danger to his tree cutting crew that cut the trees out for the roadway. He told his road crew to be on the lookout for the apes because they hid behind trees some distance away watching the men working occasionally letting out horrible inhuman screams. It seems they never came close enough to hurt anyone.

In 1946 a CCC camp was established at the now 10 mile mark. A young CCC worker went missing and was found dead a week later. His death was blamed on some unnamed animal. Whatever killed the young man was never told but some said the body had been brutally beaten. 


Thank you for this great sighting ... Linda Newton-Perry

Weatherly Creek Sighting
(October 22, 2010)

Thanks to the man at Bob’s Market [ScottsburgOregon] who told us about this site, we have a sighting of bigfoot to tell. On Oct. 20, 2010, at 8:15 am, we watched a strange creature in a field next to the road (Weatherly Creek?) that goes over to Smith River. We watched this upright thing eating apples from a tree by this old abandoned farmhouse.

We tried to get a picture of it but it was too far away for the phone to capture it. It was almost all gray with some black mixed in. As it moved it limped like one leg was a bit shorter than the other one.

It just stood there eating the crabapples and looking our way. We watched it for 5 minutes or so and then it slowly moved out of site behind an old pump house.

We noticed two doe deer over next to an old fence about 100 feet away that was mostly leaning and down.

My husband thinks it was a male because of no visible breasts on it. We believe it was approximately eight feet tall and several hundred pounds in weight.

What a strange sight for our eyes. Neither of us believed in the bigfoot stories before, but now we do believe it is real.

Bigfoot ... On This Road!

Here's an idea ...

Search for bigfoot at abandoned fruit orchards. A bigfoot was seen
on Weatherly Creek Road, east of Elkton, Oregon, picking apples
from a tree. Be careful and watch for log trucks in this area.
Last time we were on the road the trucks were 'swarming'
or so it seemed.

Bigfoot Sithting from 2009

Guest Editor-Blogger: Dennis
(#104 in Archive Section)

In 2009 at Diamond Lake my family were spending five days snowmobiling in the back country between MT Thielsen and Three Fingered Jack. On one of the daily trips we came upon some scat along the route that looked to be fresh, still steaming and of large size. My brother is a MD and he said it was deposited no longer than 10 minutes prior to our finding it.

We looked around the forest and found some large tracks human shaped and about 17 inches long and 7 wide at the ball. Snow can really change the actual size when melting so we didn't have any way of knowing the original size. As we went on up the snow trail my daughter, age 41, spotted a very large object moving swiftly through the trees alongside the trail. The object was very dark colored. She motioned for me to stop and told me what she had seen. We talked about the probability it was a bear but she insisted it was walking upright.

Anyway we continued up the mountain till the snow began getting too deep for our snowmobiles. We all decided to turn around and start back down using the north route. It was then we all saw a very large apelike animal or primate walk out from behind a clump of trees. This creature, animal or whatever it was looked very large and covered in black and spots of silver fur or hair. The thing was walking upright like a human but had long and massive arms longer than humans. It looked to be a mixture of gorilla and human. Its large black eyes were set deep in the head. The back of the head crowned like apes do.

We all got a good look before it tore off into the forest. All agreed it was at least 8 or 9 feet tall and several hundred pounds heavy. Not one of us in the family ever believed in Sasquatch. It was quite an earth shattering wake up call that we humans really don't know what's out there in our forest and world. As this animal left it literally walked into a small tree 10 foot high and snapped it like a small twig.

We left the area promptly and reported our sighting to the ranger at the lake. As far as we know this animal is still roaming about in the cascades of Oregon. The ranger just took down our information and that was it.

What Some People Think ...

About Cops Reporting a Bigfoot Situation ...

A comment/question came in about why would
cops report a bigfoot 'situation.' (This in regard to
comment posted below.)

My best guess is that the cops believed in bigfoot. They
were recreating off-duty.  They did see and photograph
prints of a large being of some sort. They were concerned
for the safety of their fellow campers in the area.

I do not find it difficult to believe that this group would
report the situation.

Readers, What is your opinion?
