1973, Stone State Park, Iowa: Hikers Hear Bigfoot Screams

While hiking in Stone State Park, Tim Phelby and Elaine Davidson, got an overwhelming feeling that they were being followed.

At first they chalked it up to a pot induced paranoia. After all, they were in a public park, it was entirely possible that other people were behind them on the trail.

But Elaine, being much more in tune with the paranormal, got an oppressive feeling. The only other time she felt similar feelings was when she and Tim were at the Indian Graveyard.

Elaine begged Tim to stop so she might try and contact whatever spirit was stalking them. But Tim remained intent upon moving ahead. The couple bickered back and forth. As the discussion got more heated and a bit louder, Tim was startled by a loud shriek coming from behind them.

At first it sounded like something from Mutual Of Ohama’s Wild Kingdom. The next scream was even louder and closer. Elaine started shaking and called out for the restless spirits to rest. But Tim knew after the next scream, they were hearing the mating call of the North American Sasquatch.

When the two emerged from their hike, they remained divided over what exactly they heard. And continued to contradict each other whenever they retold their encounter.

1990, Lava Beds National Monument, California: Hiker Discovers Bigfoot Cave Art

Experienced caver John Stromberg was exploring a series of interconnected caves in Lava Beds National Monument. He was mapping the cave system for his own amusement.

As he diligently made his way through the caverns, he came upon chamber that took his breath away.

He came upon three walls worth of elaborate cave art. All of it carved and colored with berry stains. The figures seemed to depict a tribe of hairy, ape creatures as they moved across a great expanse.

Stromberg immediately understood that he came upon a sacred spot for an ancient tribe of Bigfoot. He sat down and copied the carvings the best he could, detailing and tracing the images.

Unfortunately, his notes and tracings were all destroyed when he fell into a deep cave pool. He has been unable to find the chamber again, though he returns to the cave system often to try to located it again

1885, Hermit Island, Wisconsin: Miners Find Bigfoot Tracks

Jacob Franklin and Abner Curtis were walking back from the brownstone quarry. It had lightly snowed again since they left the house they shared.

Curtis noticed the tracks before his fellow stone cutter. The footprints were over 13 inches long, clearly left by bare feet, and spaced apart indicating that the stride was of a very tall person.

Curtis stayed with the tracks while Franklin ran to gather up other witnesses. Franklin returned a half an hour later with only two other miners. No one else wanted to leave their warm houses to look at foot prints.

Franklin theorized the next day that the impressions were left by a malevolent Indian ghost. Curtis was skeptical of that explanation, he leaned more toward some sort of creature. Either way, the miners had a good laugh at the two for many weeks afterward.

1951, Whitman Lake, Alaska: Fisherman Pelted with Pine Cones

Ross Collins was fishing alone. He had caught many fish, but kept only a few.

Collins was gathering up his tackle, when he noticed a pine cone fall a few feet in front of him. He thought it odd, since the nearest pine tree was pretty far back along the trail he came in on.  But Collins knew sometimes things fall from the sky that have no business being in the air in the first place. So he paid it a little attention.

A few minutes later, as he bent over his tackle, he felt something pelt his back. He jerked upright just as the next pine cone landed on his gear.

For the next few minutes, pine cones rained down on Collins. Many of them landing directly on him, others missing him completely. When the barrage was over, he counted at least 35 pine cones.

When he told his friend about the hail of pine cones and detailed where he had been fishing. His friend informed him that spot was very close to a Bigfoot nest and there had been many, many strange sightings and other weird things happening around that spot.

Collins, not believing in Bigfoot, chalked it up to teenagers being bad kids.

2001, Janesville, Wisconsin: Man Sees Bigfoot Dive into River

Mark Remington was walking along Bellrichard Bridge about dusk. He stopped midway across to watch the Rock River and finish his cigarette. Remington noticed something odd just under him on the bridge. It looked to him like a person was hanging and swinging from under the road.

As traffic whizzed by Remington leaned over the side just as the monstrous form leaped into the air. In a brown blur of fur and skin, the creature performed a perfect swan dive down into the river.

Remington watched in awe and astonishment as the creature surfaced, blew a stream of water out of its mouth, before diving back under the water to swim away. Its massive feet kicking up foamy waves in its wake.

Remington is not completely sure that what he saw that day was inhuman, but he is fairly certain that he might have seen a Bigfoot dive into the Rock River. Or possibly the hairiest hobo in all of human history.

She dreamed that she was floating in Helena National Forest when she came upon a Bigfoot tribal circle. The tribe welcomed Miss Olga and showed her their entire race history in a few psychic blasts.

When Miss Olga woke the next day, she understood that she had been called to spread the beauty and truth of the extinct Bigfoot race that lived in North American thousands of years before man.

2008, Cedar Breaks National Park, Utah: Man Discovers Bigfoot Toenail

Steve Grahams claims in a press release that he was in possession of a verified Bigfoot toenail. Grahams’ claim is that while hunting for a rare termite in Cedar Breaks Park, he discovered the toenail lodged in a rotten log.

At first, Grahams dismissed the find as human. But he collected it with his specimens, anyway. Later, back in his lab, he ran some tests on the toenail. The exact nature of these tests, Graham refuses to disclose, but he claims that the tests definitively ruled out human origin. Graham concedes that other animals have toenails, but remains assured that the toenail is not from any known animal.

Graham refused to release photos or display the toenail for second party examination, citing the monumental nature of his find, he fears it will be stolen or maliciously lied about in the scientific community.

When pressed about the press release, Graham said he wanted the world to know that Bigfoot exists. And that there is proof.
