1919, Boomer Hill Area, Oregon: Bigfoot Seen Eating Beehive


1919, Boomer Hill Area, Oregon: Bigfoot Seen Eating Beehive

Buck Troll and his brother Heck Troll were fledgling Oregon moonshiners. Not that they were very adept at concocting the stuff. In fact, they nearly blew themselves up with their second still. The first failed due to lack of piping.

Their third still was brewing up nicely. Buck arrived to relieve his brother for the afternoon, since Heck had an appointment with a judge. As the two brothers exchanged their scant pleasantries, there came a loud commotion from a few yard behind their stillhouse.

Heck grabbed the shotgun as he followed Buck toward the noise. Both stood in wordless amazement at what they saw. A 12 to 18 foot man creature was pulling at the large honeybee hive hanging in the upper branches of one of the trees. The creature was entirely covered in thick stringy hair which smelled like the bottom of a fish barrel.

Heck started laughing something awful when he saw the monster finally pop the beehive from the branch and stuff it into its gigantic mouth. Buck did not laugh on account of being so scared. Buck knew what he was looking at, while Heck did not. See, Buck was the older brother and grew up knowing about the Boomer Hill Monster.

A creature so fierce it would eat whole beehives including the bees and not care one whit if it got stung in the mouth or the throat or the belly! Now Buck was face to face with his worst nightmare, he was too scared to run.  But not too scared to knock the shotgun out of his damn fool of a brother’s hand, when Heck leveled it at the creature.

Heck’s yell in protest scared the Boomer Hill Monster, Buck figures, because the creature leaped from the tree and took off like a stuck pig into the woods. Buck refused to return to the stillhouse ever again, even through Heck assured him the creature never returned.

1902 Hale County, Alabama 7 Foot Tall Bigfoot Shrieks at Picnickers

TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY! In 1902 Newbern in Hale County Alabama hosted a week long celebration of the picnic basket. Several actives were arranged including a pie eating contest and a competitive game of horseshoes. On March 16, which was a Sunday, a large final picnic was held along the creek, Sam Bailey and his friend James Kemp report seeing a “large black ape over 7 feet tall and smelling of vinegar and onions.” The creature charged their blanket while screaming and waving its arms. It kicked a hole in their picnic basket, before running off with their flannel blanket which it used as a cape. Other picnickers heard shrieks and calls for help, but few others claim to have seen the beast.

1915 Fox Farm, Trigg County Kentucky, Broken Nose Abduction

TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY! Col. Robert Fox hears tell that his family farm had come under attack by a strange animal force. The assaulting creature wounded his wife with a severe, though hardly life threatening punch. While thrashing the interior of the family’s small farmhouse, after decimating the chicken coops and startling the livestock. The Fox family, the Colonel is told, has relocated to his wife’s maternal homestead in Western Tennessee. Col. Fox rushed to the farm and hastily organized a posse to search for the monster. On the second night of the hunt, the horses are spooked into flight by cracking trees and thrown bark at their stable. The next morning, the Colonel finds himself lightened by the retreat of lilly0livered cowards who fear another night in the deep woods. That will be the last anyone sees or hears of the Colonel for almost a full year. Until he emerges from the woods, covered in twigs and smelling of blackberry jam. His tale is one of abduction, fisticuffs and derring do. The creature, he claimed, kidnapped him and took him into a mossy enclave where a tribe of primitive ape men and women, lived in brutal harmony. The Colonel earned the tribe’s begrudging respect, when in a round of Queensbury Rules boxing, he broke the nose of the ape tribe’s prized fighter. The Colonel escaped by covering himself in peat and crawling among the Earth for miles.
