We have all read or heard the story of the Bigfoot killing of Erik Bauman's trapping partner, Oscar Jessip. Many believe the incident in 1850 was not a Sasquatch but a grizzly bear attack.  It happened many years before Roosevelt wrote about it in his book Hunter Wilderness. Many clues from the original story do point strongly to Sasquatch, not a grizzly. 

Clue number one is Bauman said he was awakened by a sound and upon sitting up his nostrils were struck with a "strong wild beast odor." Number two clue is according to the original story the men had a feeling of something watching them the next day. Clue three is both of the men agreed the prints or tracks were made from a two footed creature not the usual overlapping we see with grizzly's.

I myself have hunted and tagged Grizzly Bears for 25 years in Montana and can very easily ID bear tracks from human shaped tracks. These were seasoned trappers that surely could too. In all the years I've tagged bears I have never smelled the strong wild beast smell told of in the story. Bears have a light musky smell to them in the summer but are nearly odor free in the spring and early summer.

The last clue is the body of Jessip was found near the camp beside a large downed spruce tree. Grizzlys always drag their kill away from the site of the kill. They always bury the kill by pulling brush and other debris over the body. Bauman told Roosevelt the body had not been eaten and was left  where the attack had occurred. No grizzly in the world will leave the kill without trying to conceal it. 

Though this all happened in 1850 and no evidence is available for study, I fully believe this was an attack from a large Bigfoot not bear. Bears never change their habits.


Thank you for the well thought out comment. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Oregon Caves, I smelled skunk!


Guest Editor-Blogger

Terry has left a new comment on your post "They think they smelled a bigfoot ...":

If someone would explain just what the smell is like I would appreciate that. What is the smell? Is it body odor from the bigfoot or is a warning smell like skunk urine? People say it’s a pungent smell like no other they've ever smelled. Others claim it is a dead animal or feces smell. An old logger told me years ago that bigfoots put out the smell to run off bears and other wildlife.

I know that male deer in the fall rutting urinate on themselves to attract the females. Then I was watching a video that said they think the bigfoot might have glands that produce the unpleasant odor for defense. The reason I'm so interested in the smell is because in 1980 I was climbing MT Hood and out of nowhere I got a blast of terrible smelling odor that came and then went. A couple of minutes later we came upon very large human like prints in the snow. The prints were five toed but near 20 inches long and 8 inches wide.

For years I thought that someone climbing before us might have put the tracks there for some fun but now I'm not so sure. Linda,you mentioned that you and your son might have smelled a bigfoot at the Oregon caves. How would you explain the smell? I watched a video of Dr. Johnson and he talked of a smell before he had his sighting.


The odor I smelled just briefly was skunk.  We also believe we heard the huffing that Dr. Johnson mentioned.

They think they smelled a bigfoot ...

Andy has left a new comment on your post "So, ...":

No we didn't see a bigfoot but think we smelled one, east of Coquille on Bear Claw Mountain near Coos Mountain.

Monday afternoon we were walking down this dirt logging road that has been closed to traffic for 20 years or better. We had walked about 3 miles into this ravine where we knew people never hunted. As we were coming back towards the truck we smelled a very pungent like smell coming from the wind in our faces. We did not smell it going in.

My brother noticed that sometime after we had walked through this one area a smaller alder tree was now across the road. As we approached the downed tree we could see where it had apparently been snapped off about 8 feet from the ground. As we walked further we saw several more trees that had been snapped and thrown onto the old road, all of them were broken off between 6 and 10 feet up.

Both of us felt something was nearby watching us. We didn't see any tracks because we were in a hurry to get out of this area and didn't bother to stop and look for any


Thank you for the experience. What a great name for a mountain, Bear Claw Mountain. 

So, ...

Now that it's deer hunting season,
did you get a glimpse of a bigfoot?

I think the government has enough proof that Bigfoot exists, with bodies recovered from
Mt. St. Helens, Columbus Day death, forest fires and sightings which number in the thousands. I would just love this government to say they are a real mammal and put laws out that would prevent the harassment and killing of this animal, and study it and find out many questions that exist about them.

Do they migrate? Do they want to communicate with us but are afraid of being killed or harassed by human beings? I have had three encounters and everyone I say something to about it thinks I’m a nutcase, but I know what I saw!

To stop logging and putting people out of work, simply is not a alternative as wood is one of those precious resources that we as humans simply must have to survive. We can pass laws giving them a buffer of some sort when they migrate, but study them first, before starting all the hysteria about closing the woods and thousands being put out of work.

Just please admit they exist is really all we want to hear the government say, protect them from people like Rick Dryer, who really needs protection from himself, and learn to live with the knowledge they can coexist with us peacefully.

Do they get diseases such as measles, flu, Ebola? (why not without immunizations that we require?). I think we could learn a lot about life from them.

Now what to do? Should animals be
considered more important than man?
Should man's ability to use the forest 
to make a living be taken away because 
of an animal? What do you think?

Your old newspaper articles said it best: "Just a Matter of Time." There remains no doubt in my mind that over the next handful of years the government will shut down logging because of the endangered act.

Hell Linda, the (loggers) are the endangered species not the spotted owl or bigfoot. They're already movement on the way. The state forests  are closed to any kind of commercial harvest. All forest service land is too. BLM land is almost there. Only private land is being harvested now.

I work for RFP in Dillard and know we have only enough private land for another 5 years then it's all over. Yes, I saw a very large Bigfoot down near Old Tiller Road near some of our private land last year. And yes RFP knows there's an excellent chance that one or more could still be on or near company lands at any given time. 

Problem is they move from place to place so shutting land down doesn't make sense. I was told that someone found tracks of one in Northern California in the 60s or 70s and then 6 years later found the very same track in Washington State proving the Bigfoot had migrated that far north. 


Thank you for the comment. I didn't know about the five year projection. Best regards, LNP

The laws about new animal being discovered are very strict and have been withheld in the Supreme Court on the Endangered Species Act. #1 First the animal has to be counted by a Barristers Source Management Plan. This type of counting is how wildlife officials count deer and all other managed wildlife.#2. If the animal, mammal or primate show stress from loss of natural habitat the government must protect the remaining numbers to ensure the subject has enough natural habitat to survive and reproduce at no less than 4 percent a year. In the case of a new primate the latest numbers crunched has them (if real)at around no more than 1300 nation wide with the majority in the western regions. This figure is conservative and takes in credible accounts of eyewitnesses. The short math on 1300 remaining alive in 60 million acres would place Sasquatch under threat level 2 at near extinction. There is no other way to protect except closure of critical habitat. #3 Then we have a another critical problem. Like the grizzly bear and wolf, humans just don't mix well with the species. The endangered spices act is written to protect a species that likely without management to become extinct. The land would not be shut to human foot travel, just motorized activities and permanent human habitation (house building) and timber related industry. My group like many others do not want to see another animal become extinct because of greed from timber and lumber producers. If and when Sasquatch is discovered by science we will ask for quick action through the courts to insure their well being. VB member of Oregon Natural Resources Council

Can you Help? Know someone who can?

The government claims it
will close down the forests
if this animal is proclaimed

These animals have taken
care of themselves for 
who knows how long. Do
they really need lands set
aside for them? 

What if they reproduce like
crazy on their set-aside lands?
What if farmers and ranchers have
to start killing them as ranchers
now kill the wolf?

 Thank you Bud, for the bigfoot experience. I would like
to know if anyone knows of a celebrity or well-known
person that would like to take up the cause of not 
shutting down the forest when bigfoot is stamped real
by science.   

Do you know anyone?

Some times it’s harder to tell of a past experience if you have never got over it. That's my case because I've never forgotten or really been able to talk or tell people about my encounter with what had to be an adult Sasquatch.

Though it’s been 12 years since the day I had the encounter, it’s still hard to talk about. I guess I need to start at the very beginning of the day. I was camped out in the high mountains north of Brookings Oregon. It was my practice to take a week off in OCT to camp and do some fly fishing and hunting. I had been going into this area since 1974. This time I had planned to fly fish in a stream that I've been to over thirty times since I was a youngster. It was always a good fishing stream and the wildlife was always abundant. The stream feeds into Pistol River some 25 miles downstream.

This trip was like all the others till I started getting the sensation that someone was watching me at the camp and also near the stream. The feeling got stronger by the fourth day and I had also began to hear some strange snapping sounds of somebody walking around my camp but never coming close enough for me to see them. I knew it wasn't regular wildlife because you could hear the distinct sound of a two-legged person walking and snapping the underbrush.

I had called out several times for whoever it was to "come on in and have some coffee with me." It was really getting on my nerves after 2 days of the sounds, usually after midnight.

This night I decided to leave the Coleman lantern burning so I placed it on the top of my makeshift table made from some tree branches. I went to bed and around 10pm the sounds began to get louder. I was very still and after maybe an hour it came walking very slowly into the camp.

When I first saw what it looked like I quietly grabbed my rifle next to me in case it came at me. It was something like a big wildman but not really human. It looked over my camp very good and seemed to be after food. It licked a skillet I had left on the table with bacon grease covered with foil. It seemed to be fascinated with the foil because it held it up several times looking at the light from the lantern shine on it. The creature was covered in black hair or fur except around its eyes and inside of its hands. It walked erect like a human only with long and glide like steps. Before it left the camp it looked through my can goods but never took any. I was sure if I would have fired at it I could have killed it but something inside me said no because it’s not after me. It seemed to act like it was part ape or primitive human. I don't think I could ever have lived with myself if I had killed or injured it.

Sure there is an excellent answer: Most of us already know the bigfoot is real and has been in our region for hundreds of years. They seem to survive without human intervention so let’s keep it this way.

Yes by all means tell the public about the bigfoot and warn the public not to do anything stupid if by chance they see one which probably is very rare. Over the last 20 years timber owners have changed the way they harvest timber. No more [do they] clear cut for 50 miles in every direction. Actually it was the very large timber barons that did that anyway, not the small timber owner.

Make it a crime to shoot or harass bigfoot without very good cause (in rare case of attack). Make sure the penalty is strong and harsh for the unjustified killing of bigfoot. Do not give bigfoot special protection because they don't need it. Educate the public on bigfoot by giving out brochures on what people should do in case they see one. We can live side by side with bigfoot the same way we live with all the GOD's animals.

In almost every case over reaction to the announcement of anything brings unjustified anxiety to people because they don't have a clue what's what as far as the unknown.


Thank you for the thoughtful comment.  However, I’ve been told that the Endangered Species Act has different ideas how to protect this animal. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Comment Please

What are we going to do about bigfoot?

Don't you want to know if there is one
of these animals in your area of the woods?

And if you believe as we do here at
Bigfoot Ballyhoo, you don't wish for
anyone to lose a job just because the
animal is "discovered."

Is there an answer? Is there a good solution?
