Gone Fishin' has left a new comment on your post "Newspaper Column: "A Matter of Time"":
Many times I have wondered if bigfoot was just in peoples imagination. Well the answer to that question came unexpectedly last week. My sighting was near Steamboat across the river from the XXXXX. A large upright human like creature loped up the hillside after picking up what looked to be a dead Steel head from the bank of the river.
It could not have been a man dressed like a bigfoot because there's no way to get over to the site of the sighting without a drift boat and the size of it was all wrong for even a large man. Three of us were fishing the river when we saw it quickly grab the large fish and hurl around and walk off on two legs.
It appeared to be dark brown and covered with a coat of hair. If I were to estimate the things' height, I would say eight to nine feet. Weight was probably several hundred pounds. If it wasn't a bigfoot, I have have no idea what it was.
It was wild and strong to walk up the steep hill that quick. The next fisherman to me said "[I] have to quit eating in those places," and simply shook his head. The other man about 25 feet downstream said,
"What the @@@@ was that thing!"
Thanks for the weekly articles in the paper. It may help people who might see one of those things not think themselves completely nuts.
Thank you so much for the sighting and great comment. ... Linda Newton-Perry
Searching for Bigfoot Tracks
All last week we anticipated snow here in bigfoot country, Oregon. But I did get out Monday for a short time searching for bigfoot tracks. I drove east of Sutherlin where beautiful Mt. Scott loomed, wreathed in snowy mists and rainbow sparkles. It is frightening driving rain and snow drenched back roads. What’s frightening about it is trying to find a dry place to park or turn around. All went well, and I might have found a bigfoot track. I, with much effort, got a good shot of Mt. Scott on the video I filmed while searching for bigfoot tracks.
I might add that bigfoot has been sighted east of Sutherlin or at least it looked like a bigfoot. It walked off after it scrubbed its back on a tree trunk, on two legs. It walked on two legs until out of view, and so it was assumed to be a bigfoot. You can view these videos by going to www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com or Youtube and typing in Linda Newton-Perry.
I’ve handed out so many bigfoot business cards locally that I forget who I’ve given them to. Even so, I’ve had good results and from time to time been rewarded with a bigfoot sighting/story. Picture this, you round the corner of the barn and there sitting with stubby legs spread wide apart, a “beautiful” bigfoot scooping up food from the pig trough. One does not hear the word “beautiful” often in a bigfoot description, but that was the word used by a local store clerk of her California sighting.
Dave Moore, a genuine outdoorsman, was given a card and he emailed that he’d seen about every animal that roams the Oregon Mountains. He has yet to see a bigfoot. He doesn’t believe the animal exists but is open-minded enough to think it may. What was really interesting to me is that Moore is a real estate broker and has listings of several timber properties (in my mind I think bigfoot properties). You can view these listings by going to Bigfoot Ballyhoo and clicking the link to Moore’s website.
Please comment either on the online magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, or write a letter to the editor of this newspaper. We know people are interested in the subject, so, let’s hear what you have to say. Linda Newton-Perry along with her husband, Christopher Perry, is the author of five bigfoot books and one Viking Age novel. Until next week, keep “Talking Bigfoot.”
