1988, Kimbolton, Ohio: Man Discovers Bigfoot Tree House

Turner Gipson was hiking not far from his trailer off Boone Road. Gipson noticed a lot of branches, leaves, and other broken under bush surrounding one tree. This particular tree was large and old. It was sturdy and tall.

As Gipson peered up, he thought he saw movement in the branches. The harder he focused, he was able to determine that he was looking at some sort of shanty structure. Figuring some kids in the area made themselves a tree fort, Gipson laughed and kept walking.

A few minutes later, he heard someone coming toward him. Since it was getting dark out earlier in the day, he thought nothing of it. Probably just a neighbor walking by. Gipson called out. A guttural growl responded.

Gipson knew he saw no dog with the hulking massive black shadow that approached him.  He called out again. This time he saw the glowing eyes of an ape. Then he saw the full details of a massive Bigfoot racing toward him.

Gipson ran and ran. He later figured out that the Bigfoot was protecting its tree house home. When he returned to the tree a few days later, the structure was gone as was all evidence.

1990, Bering Land Bridge National Preserve: Bear and Bigfoot Wrestle

Ranger Jen Stewart was collecting samples of seeds and plants for her upcoming Junior Ranger program in Elim. When she sees a brown bear in the distance. It is acting very strangely, then it stands on it back paws in an aggressive manner.

That is when Ranger Stewart spies a very large man in a big coat running toward the bear. She starts to yell in horror. She digs her binoculars out of her backpack to better see what is happening.

Once she gets a good bead on the pair, they are locked in an upright wrestling hold. She is so frightened for the man. That is when she realizes the bear is not wrestling a man at all. The other creature looks like nothing she’s ever encountered before. Though it does resemble what she’s always heard Sasquatches look like.

Amazed at the display she watches the pair scuffle. It becomes clear that the bear and the Bigfoot are not fighting to the death, instead playing around. The grunts almost sound like laughs. The exhibition abruptly ends when Ranger Stewart’s radio crackles with static. Both creatures, startled, bolt away in different directions.

When Ranger Stewart reports what she saw, no one is that surprised.
