In 1982 I was working in the Elliot and found large footprints of something shaped like a mans foot only much larger. It was a rainy and windy morning in November when I came across a line of prints in a meadow near Elk Wallow Camp. The tracks were still muddy and had just been made within a couple hours of my finding them.
This was the strangest experience Ive ever had. The area was void of any wildlife and had a strong odor in the air of a terrible musky smell. As I looked the long line of prints over I felt as if someone was watching my every move. Generally I'm not spooked in the wood at all , but this time something was wrong. As I looked around in the surrounding meadow I caught sight of something moving into the forest on the east side of the meadows campground.
There was no mistake that what I saw was walking on two legs and was some kind of a huge wild man or ape type creature mostly covered in black hair and well over eight feet tall. It took one step to another step in long strides. It had long swinging arms as it walked.The arms reached just below it's knees.
I reported this creature to the Oregon State Police by my company radio and a game officer Kent Brandon came up and photographed the trail of prints and talked with me about the creature I had seen walking off. He was a perplexed as I was on what it was for sure.
A couple years later I saw what a BIGFOOT is supposed to look like and this thing definitely matched it. It's been years since I saw that creature but I'll remember that day for the rest of my days.
Thank you for this great sighting. ... LNP
