1970, Hillman State Park, Pennsylvania: Hunter Shoots at Bigfoot

Jonathan Rennie claims that while hunting he took a pretty good shot at a Bigfoot. Sometime around daybreak, Rennie heard some gentle rustling in the brush ahead of him. He took aim with his rifle, waiting to see what might be digging around in the undergrowth. He was surprised when a manlike figure emerged from the shadows. Rennie started to lower his gun, then realized that the figure that stood before him was not human. For one thing it was nearly seven feet tall and covered in a filthy matted fur. Without any more hesitation, Rennie fired off a shot. But he missed. The shot hit the side of the tree next to the Bigfoot, who took no time to run from the area. Rennie heard howling the rest of the day which he accounted for spooking all the animals away.

2003, Kettle Moraine Forest, Wisconsin: Man Bumps into Bigfoot

While taking an after lunch hike in Kettle Moraine Forest, Eric Searles claims he was nearly knocked over by a rushing Bigfoot.

“There I was just walking through the forest, when straight from behind a couple trees comes this large brown creature running straight at me,” Searles recounted over the phone, “I barely had time to register it as anything other than a brown blur.”

“But as the creature rushed past me, first I smelled it’s horrible oniony body stink, then as it towered over me, I knew it was a Bigfoot. There had been a rash of sightings of the guy for about a month. I am not sure where he was going in such a hurry, but he nearly knocked me over.”

Searles claims that he was too shocked to try and follow the Bigfoot. He claims he was not frightened at all by the encounter.

1936, Gila Cliff Dwellings, New Mexico: Man Claims Communication with Bigfoot

Dr. Gordon Bannon began a series of audio experiments in the Cliff Dwellings on this day. Dr. Bannon claims that he heard and recorded 17 different Bigfoot cries from within the cave. Without the use of any audio recording equipment, Dr. Bannon parroted the noises he claimed to have heard.

He published several papers theorizing that a tribe of Bigfoot still lived within the Cliffs. He held weekend seminars that became infamous because Dr. Bannon would hoot and coo and wave his arms about while demonstrating the various types of Bigfoot calls. Eventually, Dr. Bannon became something of a laughing stock and could not walk down the public street without children mocking him and housewives casting aspersions.

Dr. Bannon never recanted and died while working on an oral history of the Cliff Tribes.

1985, Cuyahoga National Park, Ohio: Hikers Document Tree Arches

Bryan Rossington and Gary Lester were hiking in the Cuyahoga park when they noticed something odd with the a lot of the tree branches.

There appeared to be a pattern to the way various tree branches were aligned. It looked like the branches had been intentionally bent into arches. Rossington and Lester followed the arches for nearly a mile as it wove in and out of the forest. They counted nearly 150 arches in the trees.

Rossington postulated that the arches were made by art students, while Lester was convinced that the arches were made by Bigfoot. But then Lester always thought everything was made by Bigfoot.

1983, Little Belt Mountains, Wyoming: Hikers Chased by Wild Bigfoot

Becky and William McRoberts had spent the day hiking around the Little Belt Mountains area in Wyoming. They came upon a particularly dense area of the woods. Becky noticed the slight tempeture drop and asked William if they could backtrack out of the area. After looking at his map, William decided that they should keep pressing forward since there was a road less than half a mile away.

About five minutes after this conversation the McRoberts heard some rustling behind them. Then they heard tree knocking, followed by a mournful howl. Becky became quiet alarmed, but William assured her to keep going. Soon enough though the noises seemed to be coming from in front of the couple, instead of behind them.

Becky begged William to stop so they could get a bearing on where the sounds were coming from, but he refused. As they stood arguing about it, a large Bigfoot stepped into view about 20 yards away. The couple described it as over 9 feet tall, orange in color, and with the most yellow eyes possible. It smelled like fish and body odor.

When the Bigfoot waved at them, Becky screamed and ran away. William took a second to figure out what was happening and followed her. For the next twenty minutes or so the Bigfoot chased the couple through the woods. Just when they would stop to catch their breath, the creature would pop up and growl at them. This scared them into running again.

Eventually, the couple got away from the monster. Or more likely the Bigfoot grew bored with its little game. The McRoberts consider themselves very lucky to be alive.

1954, Cumberland Gap, Kentucky: Children See Bigfoot Digging in Mud

Slim Ian and his two brothers, Mark and Dickey Ian, were playing around some trees in Cumberland Gap. Their parents were back near the car listening to the radio. The boys were throwing pine cones at each other and whipping each other with branches. Slim stopped short as the pine cone Dickey threw at him bounced off the back of his head. Instead of turning to fight, Slim just stood there as in a daze.

It was when Dickey and Mark ran up to Slim’s side that they understood Slim’s lack of reaction. About twenty five feet from where the brothers stood was a Bigfoot digging in the mud. The Bigfoot’s hands grabbed a huge pile of mud and then flung it into the air, high over the boys heads. Dickey, being the youngest, started to scream. The Bigfoot glanced over at the trio, which was enough to send all three brothers running away in tears.

When they arrived at the car, all three were out of breath, panting, and flushed. Their father laughed at them thinking they scared themselves somehow. It was only later that night that Dickey was able to tell his mother the tale of the digging monster. His two brothers would not talk about what they saw, so their mother assumed it was a backwoods hill person that scared her sons. And that just made her mad.

1993, Mohican State Park, Ohio: Man Sees Bigfoot Drinking in Waterfalls

While hiking the two mile loop in Mohican Park, Eddie Fricks stopped at the top of Clear Fork Gorge. While sitting for a minute and watching the low flow falls of Big Lyons Falls, Fricks saw a human-like figure emerge from the shadows. 80 feet below him, Fricks could make out the matted brown hair, the large bulbous nose, and the massive bare feet of a Bigfoot.

The creature did not see him or did not care enough to acknowledge Fricks. It went up to the small stream of water falling from the top of the Gorge. It stood directly under the falls and with its head back began gulping down the water. Fricks could see the rows of massive, sharp teeth and the enlarged red tongue as the creature lapped at the water hitting its face.

Fricks sat in place, too frightened to move he admits willingly, watching the Bigfoot until it slowly ambled away. Once Fricks was certain it left the area, he got up and walked briskly the rest of the way back to safety.
