Here is a photo sent to me today from Bill Emery. He admits it is fuzzy but one can just make out a face. I've drawn what I think is the face. This is not one of the clear and sharp photos that will be released. This just gives those that are interested a peek. I am positive we are looking at a bigfoot here in this photo.

P.S. I changed my mind and decided to put it on. Thanks Bill.
I would like to answer Preston's question about why Sru Lake plays a big part of Bill's search for Sasquatch. [The late] Dale Saxton along with Bill Emery always felt this Sasquatch would probably be the one that they could find and get close to because of his non fear of people. Most Sasquatches will not approach people but the Sru Lake Bigfoot is a bit different. He has a history of getting too close for comfort. Dale and Bill felt that sometime soon the Sru Lake Bigfoot would be a danger to a family or some hiker.
We know more about this guy than we're willing to tell right now. This is the reason ESP wants signs posted at Sru. So far USFS has denied our suggestions to do so. We never want to see a Bigfoot hurt someone because then it gives them all the name of "dangerous animal." This "one size fits all" attitude some have would be harmful to all Sasquatches wherever they might be.
Bill has named the Sru Lake Bigfoot "Big Clyde" because of his demeanor.
This photo is the one that was sent to Bigfoot Ballyhoo on the day or day after the photo was taken. Aug. 8, 2010 was the day the photos were taken. Much better photos will soon be available. ... Linda Newton-Perry
Diann E has left a new comment on your post "ESP Team: Bigfoot Investigators":
Nice to hear from you Hank. The "one size fits all" attitude could be trouble for Big Clyde. Isn't it your thoughts that Big Clyde is the Sasquatch that was shot accidentally by a hunter in 2007? If so, it is understandable that instead of rapidly going away from people he might encounter that he stands his ground and throws rocks and branches to the extent that he is responsible for the damage to the camper. Rock and stick throwing in encounters has been widely recognized but not to the extent that Big Clyde did the night the camper was damaged. Is that a correct statement?
I have labrador retrievers and they are gentle kind dogs but they each have very distinct personalities and I would think the same would be true with each and every individual Sasquatch.
With hunting season upon you, do you worry that Big Clyde could be a potential target or worse yet make himself a target by his actions. Those venturing into the forest absolutely need to be advised of the presence of Sasquatch for every body's protection.
Like the name "Big Clyde".

Diann E your right on the mark. Big Clyde is not your typical Bigfoot. Big Clyde was shot by a hunter accidentally. This is one of many reasons he does not act like others do. By posting signs telling people to be cautious around the lake is not a major concession but FS will not post these signs because of current policy about the Bigfoot. But yet once it happens, "that bad encounter", were afraid it will give all Sasquatches a dangerous animal designation. This would be a travesty for other Bigfoot. Remember the Johnson Case at Oregon Caves. That Sasquatch was watching Johnson's family on the trail but never used aggressive behavior towards them. This was not the case with the Hamilton encounter at Sru Lake. Big Clyde took them as trespassers and did advance towards the young girl.

I would like to tell the people that look at this picture of Bigfoot that the "HUMP" on the right front of the waist area is a young small fir tree 5 feet tall.
