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
November’s National Geographic has a winsome photo of a silverback gorilla sitting, broad back to camera, in high foilage. A two paragraph article explains how these endangered mountain gorillas are counted. They did not require the animal be sighted but determined their number by fecal matter, beds and paths. Primatologist Martha Robbins, said, “We don’t want to encounter unhabituated gorillas,” ... “because it is stressful for them.” The animals counted were from Virunga Mountains of equatorial Africa.
I wonder if this is how science will have to count the bigfoots around the world? The illustration is a reproduction of the photo in the magazine.

After reading about this sighting, I did some homework and am sure this bigfoot seen is the bigfoot Emery saw. The location is not very far from Agness, Oregon, and sure sounds like the same thing Emery was after. They, the hunters, told the storekeeper that they were up on Iron Mountain? According to google earth the area is very close to the Sru lake area.
Joey Bigfoot is happy to tell you readers that the Perrys' bigfoot column is in this week's Coquille Valley Sentinel. Here's a little secret Jean Ivey is not a bigfoot believer. We at Ballyhoo know because we've known the editor for several years. Maybe soon she will change her mind. Keep commenting. Keep "talking bigfoot."
Saturday Oct. 16th, I was told of a new sighting of Sasquatch by 3 elderly hunters. I will say the sighting occurred in the Siskiyou Range in southwestern Oregon at 7: am Saturday. The hunters were walking down a washed out dirt road and spotted movement up on the hillside. They froze in place because the thoughts were it was deer moving. The hunters then saw a dark black or dark brown creature walk out from behind a large oak tree. They all got a descent look at it before it moved into heavy vegetation. It was told to me the creature was upright, very tall and walking on two powerful looking legs and covered with sparse hair around its face and hands. It arms were long and powerful looking also. After the creature moved off they noticed that some orange-ish mushrooms had been put in a small pile at the base of the oak. The hunters all agreed the creature was not a bear but a Sasquatch or Bigfoot. When they examined the ground more closely they found prints with five toes on each foot. The measurements of the tracks were 18 3/4 and 8 1/2 wide at the heal. There is no indications the hunters made this up.
None of them believed Bigfoot was actually real. It was pointed out to me that none of them wanted to report the sighting to law enforcement because of fear of being dubbed nut cases.
They did say I could tell the sighting to the persons of my choice just to keep their names out and location of the sighting.
If you know anymore about this sighting please comment. ... LNP
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!
