A recent outing to hike came to an abrupt end for me and my husband last weekend. We traveled from California to Oregon to hike for a weekend with friends over by Sisters, Oregon. We had come expecting snow in the Cascades but found very little on the ground. After stocking up on food and water, we began our overnight hike into the Three Sisters Wilderness area. Everything was great until we reached some waterfalls near Quinsy Creek. After stopping and having lunch, we started out again into a meadow but some weird feeling began to bother me, like we were in danger. I brought it up to my friends and they too replied they had a feeling of danger. We stopped to look around and everything seemed to be OK. As we came to the end of the meadow, we noticed a terrible smell coming from the trees off to our left. My husband said he thought some type of wildlife had died thus causing the smell.

As we walked on the trail, we came upon some tree branches that looked as if they had been ripped off a tree and then whipped on the ground. This was alarming to us because of the size of the limbs. We decided that we should not go any farther, so we turned around and walked back to the meadow.
When we reached it, we all saw some dark figure move inside the trees on the opposite end for a split-second. I didn't get that good of look at it, but Jamie my friend did. She said it was a huge apelike being. She also said it was pulling a dead deer behind it. We decided to get out of there quick. We all believe the being was watching us the whole time we were in the meadow. We didn't camp that night out there. Actually none of us are big on bigfoot, but we believe that's what this thing was.

A Place Bigfoot Has Been Spotted, Oregon

Where Bigfoot Has Been Spotted

Bigfoot was spotted three or four years ago crossing this creek, Mill Creek. This road is Mill Creek Road off hwy 38 going to Loon Lake, Oregon

Please use caution ...

It is difficult to believe that these huge animals live in our forests. But people see them all the time. Most of the time the sighting happens so quickly that there is not time to snap a photo and if one is managed it is usually blurry or too far away to be any good.

A Camas Valley rancher tells of a strange creature walking in a field. A well known rancher in the Camas Valley, Oregon, area reported he observed a very large manlike creature walk across his field and disappear into woods on Sunday December 8, [2013.] The creature was seen near a apple orchard in his north field at 9.20 am. At first the rancher thought the animal was a large bear standing on its hind legs near the trunk of an apple tree.

Then the rancher saw the creature walk off on two legs into an nearby forest. He reported the creature was covered in a dark brown coat of fur or hair and standing on two legs. He was too far away to get a good look at the face but is sure it wasn't a bear.
He wishes his name to be withheld. His theory is recent snow and ice along with extreme cold weather brought the creature down into the lowlands looking for food. The apple tree still has apples on it from the fall.

One was in
Ash Valley, [Oregon] area out of Loon Lake. It was within 30 yards of me and my fiancĂ©e, and it was the most terrifying one [of my sightings]. This creature was about 8 foot tall and 4 foot wide and snarled at us, as well as staring us down for about 3 minuets─which seemed like an hour. I feared for our lives. I now carry a hand gun of significant power when in the woods. He made several advances at us and I didn't think I would be sitting here today writing this.

The other 2 [sightings] were in the area west of Monroe near Alpine, which is on the way to Corvallis. These were almost kind of tranquil in a way and that is how I have come to the conclusion that the red-eyed creatures are a different hybrid type animal and are very aggressive. I hope our luck continues and we have more encounters as now we leave treats behind when we leave an area and check it the next day for any sign.

So far we’ve only had a small stack of flat rocks that were stacked in a very strange way, and were not there the day before; and some bird feathers that were placed on the ground where we placed some apples and snickers bars the day before.

Would love to have you come out one day and we will go enjoy the day walking the woods, and the night at one of our local wineries at dinner, which would be our treat.

Have a great Thanksgiving and keep up the good work. Please don't say you never want to see a bigfoot again as I want everyone that has seen one to come forward. I want to go there and investigate if it is within days of the sighting with respect to the area and the creature.

Hi Linda - Agreed, a lot of them are pretty filthy and disheveled, at least by human standards. However, there are also many examples of some very well groomed specimens. For example, unlike some that I've seen, a large, mature, male I saw a few years was utterly drop-dead magnificent in both stature and grooming. I think they're like a lot of apes and a lot of people in that when working hard (busy foraging and hunting), they'll get and stay pretty dirty for some time. But at some point grooming time arrives. One example is the spring shearing many of them do to lighten their coats as the summer heats up. A lot of them do that in one location and leave quite a coat of lighter colored under hair behind on the forest floor.

A Note From the Editor of This Site

Dear Bigfoot Friends,

With each passing week I wonder how and why I keep my interest in bigfoot going. In reality, this being is dirty, and often mean. The only cute one would be a newborn (my idea only).

I know the animal exists. I believe it is only an animal, nothing more. I do not believe it is part apparition, sliding between the visible and invisible worlds, as some do.

I believe there are forces at work that make people believe all sorts of things about these animals, drugs, unsound minds, long held beliefs as some Native Americans believe.

I do get much joy in providing a place, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, where people can come and talk about their sightings by way of comments. A place where they  do not have to give their name. As you know many people once they find out one believes in or has had a sighting will make fun of and generally give one grief, just because he/she has seen one of these animals.

Got to go.
Best regards, Linda Newton-Perry Editor/Owner of this site

I just got this report from a couple: The sighting was at Rock Creek in the
Siskiyou Mountains in Southwestern Oregon on November 23, 2013. The couple, their names I’ll not publish, had been camping at Daphine Grove on the #33 mainline for two days. On Friday they moved the camp trailer to Rock Creek Campground some 5 miles south. Friday night they sat around the campfire and talked till around midnight. They went to bed only to be awakened at 3: AM by the family dog barking near the trailer door. The dog would not settle down and was very agitated. First thing they remembered was that they were in the campground alone. No other campers around to suspect being the cause. The husband opened the door after around 15 minutes to have a look outside at the camp. He saw nothing so they went back to bed and nothing happened for the remainder of the night. The next morning after breakfast they hiked the old trail up to Azalea Lake. The husband told me the lake was nearly impossible to walk around because downed snags were thick along the lake shore. They spent a good deal of the morning looking over the lake and surrounding land. They went back to camp at 11AM. When they returned to the campground they noticed someone had torn the small woodpile apart and scattered the wood all around.

The husband believed it to be a black bear because the coffee grounds from the pot near the fire pit had been emptied and bears do like coffee grounds. They stacked the wood back up near the fire and ate lunch. About 2 PM they noticed a loud knocking sound coming from up on the mountain somewhere. It was a loud wood knocking with periods of silence then more knocking. This went on for over an hour. They discussed what the sound might be and the husband thought it could be a buck deer hitting its horns against a tree. Finally the sound quit and they settled in for the evening.

At 4 PM they were sitting around the fire having coffee when the wife saw movement behind a tree in the next campsite. It was really just a quick flash of something dark in color she explained. She asked her husband if bears come close to people on purpose. He told her they don't as a habit. She was explaining to the husband where she saw the dark shadow. When she pointed over to the tree they both noticed a large head looking from behind the tree at them.

They both bolted for the trailer because the head was not a bear’s but something somewhat human shaped. He looked out the trailer window and saw the outline of something very large walk on two legs from the tree to another large tree. He explained it was covered in dark hair and massive in size compared to a normal human. After that they waited for some time with nothing moving outside. They threw their few outside belongings into the pickup bed and left the campground.

They didn't return to the camp till the next morning. Nothing had been disturbed expect once again the coffee pot was empty of grounds and the small pile of wood was again scattered. They are convinced they saw a bigfoot, not a bear. He walked to the tree the next morning and approximately measured the height of the head from the ground and he believes it was 9 feet 2 inches from the base of the tree.

To me bigfoot was nothing more than children stories until Oct 2003. That year I was invited to
Oregon to hunt elk with my cousin from Myrtle Creek. We had planned a hunting trip for years, but never seemed to get it done until we were both over 65. I had arrived at my cousin’s house on Oct 30th just days before elk season was to open.
Our tags were for the Tioga area in Coos County near Burnt Ridge just some 23 miles Northwest of Tenmile. We were camped at a place called Elk Wallow on Burnt Mountain Ridge Road. On this morning the weather was cold and windy. We decided that we would walk some of the older roads not open to traffic. I decided to try a road called Cabin Creek.
The road was dirt (muddy) and not passable by 4 wheelers. As I walked this road I became aware of a feeling that someone was watching me. This feeling was intensified by a faint odor of dead animal. I had smelled this in Vietnam in the 60s from dead goats. The feeling and smell stayed with me the further I walked.
Then finally I reached a place where I decided to stop and watch and scope out this logged off area. I noticed the area had been burnt by a wildfire some years before. Most of the giant sized timber was still standing with black bark around the base of the trees. As I was watching the timber for elk, I happened to notice some movement just inside the tree line near the creek in the bottom. Thinking elk had been lying down and were starting to move I got the shock of my life.
As I watched through my glasses I saw a heavy built man stand up and start walking towards the creek. Right away I realized this was no man. The shape was humanlike but covered in dark hair. As it walked to the creek I could see the back of it. It was completely covered with fur about 4 inched except what looked to be a strip down its head and back which was somewhat longer 5 or 6 inches.
 It stopped at the creek, bent down and scooped up water with its big hands. Then it stood up and turned towards me. At that time I got a great look at its face. The face was a dirty gray look. The nose was flat and eyes were large and solid black. It looked to be a mixture of human and ape. It looked around and I could see its head basically set on its massive shoulders without a normal neck. The head was slanted back into a dome shape on the crown. It had huge powerful jaws like an ape. It looked to be over eight feet tall judging by the brush height dotting the creek.
For some reason I started to get very nauseous and became dizzy. It was most likely my nerves and the stench this thing gave off in the wind. I got a sense that I was in danger thou I don't understand why. It never did see me. After a while it crossed the creek and disappeared into the vast stand of timber. I remained still and could hear it breaking twigs as it walked off.
I remained there for 20 minutes or so until the sick feeling started to leave. As I walked back the dirt/old gravel road, I noticed several large footprints on the road I had not seen on my way in.
When I returned to camp I told my cousin what had happened. He really didn't know what to believe. Actually if I were him I would have most likely been the same. No one wants to realize that the world we live in isn't just as we were told as kids.

Bigfoot Country

Search for his tracks, because that's about as close as you will get to this animal. You will see him only if he has made a mistake, the wind blowing away from him, etc.

You know people like Cory telling about his encounter helps others that are afraid to tell about a sighting they've had. I'm no exception to the rule.

 In August 2013, I was doing a timber line survey on Upper Rock Creek near Remote, Oregon. I have been employed by BLM for 22 years as a surveyor on timber sales. I never really thought one way or the other about sasquatch or bigfoot. I certainly never thought I would ever see one.

On this August morning the fog had just lifted off a mountainside I was to run a line on. This was an area where I had done some other pre-sale work. I had left the pickup on a turnout and followed a game trail down to the bottom of the canyon where a small creek runs water year around. I wasn't really paying attention to the surroundings because I had already been down this trail twice that week.

When I reached the creek, I noticed the water was very muddy looking. At about that same time I heard the sounds of water splashing just up around the bend in the creek. I walked up the side of the creek to see what was going on. Well, what I saw was unbelievable. Two upright beings covered in hair one dark brown and one a light brown were laying in the creek rolling themselves over and over apparently cooling off in the creek.

The water wasn't deep enough to completely cover them. The light brown being was a female because it had visible breasts on it, the other darker one was a male. I will not comment on why I know he was male. They bathed or washed themselves for a few more minutes then the male stood up on his legs.

At that time I was froze in place behind the brush on the bank. He was enormous in size. Then the female stood up and she was somewhat smaller but in no way my size. I'm 6' 3 and 205 and these beings were much larger than me.

They slowly started to walk up the creek and I noticed both of these things had very muscular arms and torsos. The arms were longer than human. The faces were somewhat apelike with features not ape like but somewhat human. Both faces were a deep dark brown weathered look. After a few minutes more, they disappeared from site by walking up the opposite side of the canyon into the timber.

I remained still for what seemed at least 30 minutes then went back to the pickup. All the way back to the office I thought about how I was going to report this.

I never did say a word because I had remembered what happened to a colleague that reported seeing one last year. He was retired by force. The sale has since been pulled because of water quality concerns over logging it. I still feel guilty that I had to remain silent.

Weatherly Creek Just Off Hwy 38

Watch Out for Log Trucks

If you are looking for something to do this next long weekend, why not go for a drive and watch for bigfoot. The map below is all paved roads except Weatherly Creek . Enjoy and let us know if you get a glimpse of this extraordinary animal. ... Linda Newton-Perry


A Couple Years Ago
Photos below were taken on the Rogue River, Oregon. The track was near a narrow, shallow stream. It was located on the mountainside of the road. I wanted to have our lunch back under the trees near this stream. Chris had other ideas, so we drove on down the road until we found this spot where Chris is pouring our beverage.  Just a week or so before or after this outing a woman spotted a bigfoot crossing the road in the early morning. And many sightings have been reported from this area. We had our eyes sharpened for bigfoot, but didn’t see the animal. We had a great time, anyway.

I work for a county road department in Douglas County Oregon.I was sent out to look for downed trees and slides on the Coos Bay Wagon Road on Wednesday morning after days of heavy rain .Just above Iverson Park around a mile up something ran across the road in front of me. All I can say is it was no normal animal.It looked like and was shaped like a human only covered with wet black matted hair and about double the size of a large person.I didn't see it's face but it ran on two legs like a man would.I would guess it was somewhere around 7 to 8 feet tall with a very husky build and long arms.I didn't call it in.

Two years ago a grader operator was plowing snow in that same area when he seen one of these things walk across the road in front of him. He was laughed at for months. I have never believed the stories of Bigfoot but I must say I don't know what else it could have been. It sure looked like what people are reporting seeing on this site. I have to say it really shook me up at the size and speed it crossed the road.

I was very moved by the lady that reported her sighting during Elk season on Ballyhoo. In fact it moved me to the point where I'll tell what happen to me.

I've been hunting deer in Coos/Douglas counties this year. Last week I was walking on a very old logging road that is only accessible by foot on Weaver Ridge. It was shortly after daylight when I began walking on this old dirt road. I walked for a long time as the old road went up a very steep mountainside. Half way to the old landing, I heard what sounded like a loud whistle in the air. It sounded like someone that is good at the kind of whistle people do with their fingers and mouth.

I knew no one was around because the only way in was the road I was walking. Then again I heard another very loud whistle sound. Minutes later came a sound of some wood or rock beating on something. I started to get alarmed because the area had no sign of any wildlife around. I came upon a old log laying across the road so I set down and took out my field glasses to scope the mountainside. 

As I scanned the area I caught a sight of a very large animal covered in black hair, walking down an old game trail. What was startling was--I watched this animal walking on two legs. It would walk and stop and then seemly smell the air with its head tipped back.

I could see it was some apelike man creature. I watched as it passed a tree and I came to the conclusion that it was a least eight to nine foot tall or better. It had long massive arms on it. It reached out and pulled some leaves off an alder tree, then it seemed to look at them in its hand.

All of a sudden a whistle rang out somewhere off in the distance. I watched the creature throw its head back and let out a whistle back. After the whistle it looked over in my direction like it had spotted me. It let out a deep whoop,whoop sound and took off into the cover of the timber.

I jumped up and took off at a full run back towards my car. It took me 30 minutes to get back to the car, the whole time huffing and puffing and looking back to see if that thing was after me. I will never go deer hunting alone ever again.

 Now [I'm] a believer of BIGFOOT.

People in general don't think about what happens to people who see bigfoot. My sighting was so frightening that I've never got over it fully.

The sighting happened on Burnt Mountain near Skeeter Camp a few years ago. My husband and I were camping here with another couple from Roseburg during Elk season. The guys had left in the pickup to go look at a clearing where they had seen Elk the week before.

It was a sunny morning so my friend and I decided to hike a old trail nearby. On this trail were many mushrooms and areas of wild Azalea plants. We started up the trail and walked about a mile when we noticed a bad smell and strange knocking sounds coming from somewhere close. I thought the sounds were of a woodpecker but my friend didn't.

We would walk then stop and listen to the knocking and sounds of underbrush snapping. After just a few minutes we decided to return to the trailers. We started back down the trail only to see a very tall and husky black hair covered creature walk out onto the trail. We froze in place.

The creature looked at us with huge black eyes and its yellowish block like teeth showing in its mouth. We were petrified. I told my friend to turn around and follow me because it seemed the creature was locked in a stare down with us. We couldn't move. We were both too scared to move.

Then the creature walked off the trail after a few minutes. We stood in place for what seemed to be a hour. Afraid to go down the trail and maybe meet it again. After a while we made our way back down the trail still hearing the knocking sound. About half way back we saw it again just inside the trees off the trail. It was following us.

We started running and finally came out on the road next to the camp. We hurried to the my trailer and locked ourselves inside. I had a rifle inside and was scared enough to use it if it came close to the trailer. It never did and as soon a our husbands got back we packed up and moved to another area.

The guys went back and found tracks of a large human shape almost 19 inches long. My husband came back to the trailer and told me what they had found and that we just cant report this because we'll be the laughing stock of Roseburg.

So I let it remain inside me for a couple years. Finally I got so bad with panic attacks I had to seek help. So talk about your sighting don't let it fester inside you. It can ruin your health to hold stress inside you. Talk to someone you trust. 

How's it going ...

Not long ago one could get his drivers license suspended, in Oregon, if a bigfoot sighting was reported to the police. This was true if the sighting happened while the person was driving his car. How is that going? It was supposed to have stopped. Just remember the police do not believe these animals exist and so they may still get drivers for filing a false report. Again, how is it going? And if a policeman reports his own sighting that can be BIG trouble as well! Comment please.

Spending Time in the Forest

Linda, I work as a subcontractor doing contract work on occasion doing survey work for the BLM or USFS before timber sales ensuring that species such as the red salamander or red tailed vole do not get endangered any more than they are now.

These two government agencies are so dedicated at saving these species that they spend millions ensuring their safety. The thing is that as part of their contract if you want to continue working for them you must maintain a no see, no hear, attitude.

These timber sales no longer fund our schools or services such as the sheriffs patrol, which is a shame since so much timber is leaving our state to the overseas markets and the people that it belongs too are getting nothing.

For the BLM to admit that this creature that I have encountered at least 4 times in the last 5 years of camping in the woods as I work, where there is locked gates to keep people out and sometimes locked for years, would put a lot of people out of work and probably bankrupt the United States because of the jobs and service industry that logging brings to our communities.

To speak of my encounters would cost me my income. That is why I think to bring someone into the spotlight and want to verify some information that they take up the nerve to put their lively hood on the line is no option.

I would love to talk about my encounters but until I can not do the work that I love doing I must remain silent.

Our sighting began on a hiking trip on Snout Creek in November 1980. Snout Creek is now called Bear Camp Road #23 and is over in southwestern Oregon near the tiny village of Agness.

I had just returned from a tour of duty in Germany. I was born in Northern California in 1952. My wife was a naturalist for the forest service in California and born in 1961. We had went up to Oregon to a friends wedding at Gold Beach and planned to stay for a week camping along the Rogue River.

On this morning we decided to hike up a narrow steep trail from Snout Creek to Shasta Costa Creek some four miles south. Packed with plenty of food and water we started up the old trail at daylight. We had walked somewhere around 2 miles when the trouble began. At 7:30 am my wife complained of a feeling someone was watching us.

I looked around and found nobody near. Then when a very faint sound of something in the brush just off the trail and to our right became louder I began to notice a smell of what I thought was a dead animal. My wife said to me "Something's not right here."

We walked on watching back down the trail and to our sides. The sound of branches snapping got louder and closer. I told her we can't turn back because whatever it was had to be behind us and off the trail. We walked slowly on up to a large rock right beside the trail where we stood for some time.

I had my pistol in hand and thought this would be the best place to defend ourselves. Suddenly a dark, hair-covered manlike creature walking on two legs slowly walked out onto the trail some thirty feet behind us.

It looked at us with its large dark eyes for what seemed to be several minutes. My wife was completely in full panic mode and I wasn't much better. Even though I've been trained for dangerous situations the very sight of the giant creature had fear overtaking me. I didn't know if the creature would attack or retreat.

I shouted if you come any closer I'll shoot. The creature didn't respond and said nothing. After looking at us for what seemed like minutes it walked on across the trail and down a very steep incline. 

Soon the feeling of fear lifted and we carefully went back down the trail and back to camp. We went to the Cougar Lane Store and reported the sighting by phone to the police. The lady on the phone took the report and told us that one of the patrols would stop by our camp later that day. When he arrived he asked me about the creature.

When I told him the estimated height and build he smiled and said OK. I know when a person is scared things get bigger than they really are but I'm telling you this creature was over nine feet tall and near one thousand pounds.

Taken a Couple of Years Ago

Whistle at Sru Lake Oregon?

What is the whistle going off at Sru Lake Oregon all about? One would think, of course, it is to keep animals, and I would think, people out of the area. We know this is where a bigfoot was watching the Hamilton family a few years ago. The area is the general area where Bill Emery's team observed a bigfoot. It is good to say this is not a good time of the year to try to find this area. The roads can be very dangerous. Would like to hear what you have to say so comment, please.

Last weekend we really had a bad camping trip. We actually had planed the trip into the forest last summer but couldn't go because of work schedule problems. This last weekend my husband and I went into a remote area of southwestern Oregon.

The first night we got rain and thunder all night. Saturday night it looked to be getting ready to rain again so we slept in the SUV instead of the tent. Along around 3 am I was awakened by the sound of something approaching the SUV.

I could hear footsteps getting closer and closer and the distinct sound of heavy breathing and limbs breaking in the tree line. We had the windows cracked down enough so we could get fresh air and hear the beautiful sounds of the forest. My husband sleeps like a flat rock so he didn't wake up. Then a unpleasant smell filled the air. A musky smell quite overwhelming.

I remained very quiet not to scare whatever was outside. The rain, thunder and lighting had began. Then a long flash of lighting hit I saw a huge shape of something just outside the back door. Again I remained very still as it walked around the SUV and it bent over to peer in. I could see its face through the glass. It wasn't a human face but not a bears ether. Something between human and ape is how I would describe it. It walked off on two legs after around 10 minutes after looking the tent over real good.

My husband woke up around 5 am and asked me "Did you sleep well?" "Are you kidding?" I replied. I told him what had happened and he just laughed saying "Honey it was just a little black bear." 

He stood where I had seen it bend over to look in and at 6 ft 4 inches he still was a 2 feet shorter than the creature. I was never was so mad in my life at him. I can't tell my sighting at work because I'm a dispatcher for a sheriffs' department and 911 operator.

My husband did not find any tracks on the rocky ground outside the SUV. He doesn't believe bigfoot is real but now I know it is.
