No we didn't see a bigfoot but think we smelled one, east of Coquille on Bear Claw Mountain near Coos Mountain.
Monday afternoon we were walking down this dirt logging road that has been closed to traffic for 20 years or better. We had walked about 3 miles into this ravine where we knew people never hunted. As we were coming back towards the truck we smelled a very pungent like smell coming from the wind in our faces. We did not smell it going in.
My brother noticed that sometime after we had walked through this one area a smaller alder tree was now across the road. As we approached the downed tree we could see where it had apparently been snapped off about 8 feet from the ground. As we walked further we saw several more trees that had been snapped and thrown onto the old road, all of them were broken off between 6 and 10 feet up.
Both of us felt something was nearby watching us. We didn't see any tracks because we were in a hurry to get out of this area and didn't bother to stop and look for any
Thank you for the experience. What a great name for a mountain, Bear Claw Mountain.
