Sighting While Mushroom Hunting, Oregon
(June 10, 2012)
I saw the smaller version [bigfoot] about 6 feet tall when mushroom hunting last year in the shadows of the trees. It looked like a juvenile and made sounds that I have never heard in all my years in the woods.
I was never really able to get a really good sighting of it, but I do know the later it got it starting a calling sound. It sounded big by the sounds it was making. It started our way. I have never been scared of anything in the woods, but this thing scared me just with its vocals and sounded like King Kong coming through the woods.
I jumped in my vehicle and got out of there with my picking crew. They were scared out of their wits. I just want to say that if someone goes looking for this animal, I believe you are in for a shock and maybe an encounter that will not turn out well.
