I have been to Scottsburg to talk with a woman that saw what she thinks was a bigfoot. She went with me to the spot where the latest sighting took place on Sunday the twenty fifth of this month. The ground is so saturated from heavy rain no tracks were visible. After we talked about the sighting she gave me the name of another person who said they had seen it too on a different day. The description of the bigfoot is remarkable in many ways. I have to believe this is the crippled bigfoot Dale Saxton investigated last year near Elkton. The age and movement of the animal leads me to believe it has moved into the area of Scottsburg from the Weatherly Creek area. This would also explain why this animal has been seen several times along the shoulder of the road near the Loon lake exit. I would guess this creature to be old and probably sick or diseased because of the noticed slow movement of the creature when seen. I have placed three trail-cams in the area of the recant sightings and one down at the river. I will hope to get something other than Elk and Deer on them. We will let you know of any image we receive.
Recently my wife and I experienced the loss of our youngest daughter. This was one of the most difficult times of my life. At age 59 I have found myself to be getting to old for timber cutting. I contract my jobs out regularly to younger folks but still insist on being in the woods. My wife returned from Alaska to ask me to quit bigfoot hunting to spend more time with her and my other kids. For three days I thought about her request. Then I told her what bigfoot hunting does for me. When looking for bigfoot I think all the time about different things. When I'm in the mountains a great thing happens. My mind clears from everyday stresses. Without the bigfoot searching I would have lost my mind for sure during this difficult time for me. After explaining all this to the wife she gave me a hug and said Bill "Keep on a bigfootin" I have suggested she join me in the mountains for some great times ahead. Bill Emery

I was wondering about that crippled bigfoot and if he'd been seen lately. It must be the one I got the footprint of. Good hearing from you....LP
It's always neat to hear from Bill. He seems to have a good outlook on life. I too was wondering about if this Bigfoot at Scottsburg could be the one I saw. When something like this happens to people they don't realize how nice it is to have somebody like Dale or Bill to talk with. Both are very understanding and nonjudgmental. This kind of sighting can really shake a person up and many will automatically say "you must be nuts". Since Dale passed on I have relied on Bill with my ongoing questions . God Bless you Bill!
