Announcement: Bigfoot Ballyhoo has been under attack, in the past, by a couple of people who wished Ballyhoo and its editors to look as if they were hoaxing information.
One of the biggest examples would be the claim that we made up the ESP Team, Bill Emery, Cole Saxton and the late Hank Parchell. A well-known bigfoot researcher found photos that looked like Emery, Saxton and Parchell. He claimed the three to be the real men and not any part of the ESP Team. (In fact, he claimed there was no ESP Team).
And then while the Emery Team was processing trail cam photos a couple were sent to Ballyhoo. These photos turned out to be well-known bigfoot photos, one from a movie and one of Patty. The technician’s son that was processing the trail cam photos replaced the real photos with fakes. In good faith Emery sent the dallied-with photos to Ballyhoo. When it was found out what happened it was explained.
Another photo of a footprint with a believable history was given Ballyhoo to post. Turned out to be Tim Fasano’s photo from Florida. Again, we’ve given explanations for each occurrence. We were hoaxed.
We in time recognized each hoax and explained what happened
The group of bigfoot people are now camped at China Flats. One of them told me today they are looking for the Sru Lake bigfoot and also are setting a camp up at Rock Creek Campground. When I drove by I saw hounds in cages and many license plates from Canada. Guess there going in on Sunday.
Salmonberrys grow in thickets and are ripe in Oregon between mid-June and late July. Remember, Bill Emery said he came upon an area that was thick with them. When ripe they resemble an orange-red raspberry.

As we continue the story of my trip, I will tell of finding the Bigfoot bed.
In the early morning of the forth day, I sat out into a deep canyon leading into the valley of Dry Creek. About half way down, I discovered a nest or bed next to a outcrop of rocks. The floor of the nest was covered in dry ferns and soft moss. There, I found three hair shafts of black hair. I collected them and sealed them in "shrink wrap."
It was apparent the bed had not been used for some time but the hair might reveal the occupant. Then shortly after that I came upon a area where the salmonberries were absolutely thick. I believe these animals stay near a food source when found. It was amazing the amount of food available to wildlife in this area.
The female bigfoot at this point had disappeared and was no longer watching me. Along the way, I cataloged 18 black bears, 3 cougars and over 20 porcupines. Also many many deer and squirrels. This is prime land for the Sasquatch to live in, complete solitude without human intervention. This is why I went into this area on foot. It is my belief a person has a better chance to find bigfoot this way.
I write along with my husband Christopher Perry. We are the authors of a Viking Age Novel, Forced Blood The Norseman and several bigfoot children's books. I author the blog Bigfoot Ballyhoo. I'm a bigfoot believer and I hope the animal will be "found" soon.
Linda and Chris, we had great success last night and early this morning. Bigfoot came within 25 feet of me and Hank. We put out salt licks last night to see if the animal would try to take it and he did. I am enclosing a snap of #6 camera. DO NOT put it on the site yet. We don’t want another thing like last week. You may tell your readers of it though. All together we got 4 shots. They will have to all be enhanced but we believe all are very good. This shot was at 6 AM, Sunday Aug. 8, 2010. The image in the background is an old rotten cedar stump. Thanks for your support!
