1952, Greater Prairie Chicken Trail, Colorado: Bird Watcher Watches Dancing Bigfoot

Amateur ornithologist, Avery Hideman, was out birding along the Greater Prairie Chicken Trail in Fort Mason, Colorado. Hideman spied two Cassin’s Sparrows when he noticed something in the lower corner of his binoculars. He swung them down to investigate what he saw made him cruse and nearly drop his binoculars.

Hideman claims he saw two Bigfoot dancing along the ridge about a half mile away. Hideman was certain they were Bigfoot because of their enormous size. They were covered in dark hair and looked like giant apemen. Hideman was totally convinced when the two creatures kick up their heels and he saw their big feet! They were larger than any human feet that he ever seen.

Hideman watched for several minutes the two monsters prance around. Unfamiliar with many popular dances, Hideman probably misidentified the Bigfoot dance as “clear square dance moves.”

1956, Titusville, Pennsylvania: Woman is Visited by Bigfoot Ghost

Selma Jackson went to church every morning since she retired in June of 1956. Usually, the morning mass. On this particular morning, it started to rain as she made her walk to the church. Not wanting to get wet, she took cover under a little bus shelter on the side of the road.

As she stood there watching the rain pelt the road, she heard a moaning sound coming from behind her. Ms. Jackson turned around to see, much to her chagrin, hovering in the dripping trees the ghostly shape of a Bigfoot. The figure hovered off the ground a few feet and was a blue translucent color. But it was clearly a Bigfoot monster. It had the large apelike features, the massively large feet, the powerfully strong arms, and the whole area around it smelled like burning batteries.

Ms. Jackson started to pray for her safety, but the Bigfoot looked so sad and lost, she began to take pity on the ghost. She called out to it to “get on.” The ghost looked at her and she said again, “go on get on with yourself.” The Bigfoot moaned some but turned and started to float away.

A few minutes after the ghost disappeared, the rain stopped and Ms. Jackson made it to church without missing much at all. She prayed for that Bigfoot ghost that it might find it’s way to some settled peace.

1957, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado: Bigfoot Seen Entering UFO

Jack Chalich, a college student out on a morning ski stumbles upon a very disturbing sight. As he zig zagged down the Beaver Run Trail, he spotted something bright, shiny, and clearly metallic on the other side of the treeline.

He came to a stop to investigate the strange object. It was about the size of two Chevrolet sedans stacked next to each other and as tall as a playground slide. It gave off a light that was nearly impossible to look directly at, and the silver surface of the machine was otherworldly. It only took Chalich a few seconds to realize he stumbled upon a genuine UFO.

Just as that fact hit him, Chalich realized he was standing there gawking at it like a tourist. Immediately, he ducked down. He crept closer to the cylinder spaceship, laying flat on his belly in some dense bushes.

Chalich nearly sqwaked when he saw the tall white skinned alien beings walk out through the woods. They were chattering in a clicking language to a huge hairy beast. Chalich rubbed his eyes in disbelief as the massive Bigfoot bent down to better hear the large fish eye alien beings.

He watched in horror as three more alien creatures emerged from the side of the spaceship. They clearly greeted the Bigfoot, who gently embraced each one, before the whole group re-entered the UFO. Chalich passed out or fainted. Because the next thing he remembers is waking up at the bottom of the ski trail. His skies had been removed and neatly stacked next to him.

Chalich found that as he told his tale to others, many believed the UFO part but dismissed the claim that Bigfoot was an alien.

1956, Stewart State Forest, New York: Hunter Sees Something Strange

George Deen had tracked a deer all morning. Finally, he got a good clean bead on it Just as he was about to pull the trigger on his rifle, the deer quickly bolted to the right. Deen scanned the area for the deer. There was no trace of the animal. Not even a branch shaking.

It was then Deen noticed how still and quiet the woods were, even the wind seemed to stop. Deen lowered his rifle and took his hat off to wipe his brow. He glanced down for a split second. When he looked up, everything around him seemed engulfed in a strong gust of wind. It was strong enough to knock him out of his crouch.

As Deen steadied himself, he saw the creature. It was massive like three high school liner backers but moved like a bat of hell. Deen did not get a good look at it. But he is convinced that it was a Bigfoot that barreled past him that afternoon. Mainly, he believes it because of the awful smell left behind, just hanging there between the trees, seeming to wilt leaves and made birds fall from the branches.

When Deen told his friends about it, a few believed him since they encountered that terrible funk in the woods as well. But a few of his friends remained incredulous based on the speed at which the Bigfoot Creature was reported to have had. Everyone knows Bigfoot lumbers and does not engage in speedy foot races.

1954, Wynoochee River, Washington: Man in Canoe Sees Baby Bigfoot

Avid canoe enthusiast, Leon Ambrose took his new 12 foot Cartopper out for the day. As he was gliding along a smooth stretch of the Wynoochee River, just about where the railroad crosses the river, Ambrose heard crying. First he paid it little attention, since it was the middle of the day and babies are not uncommon. But when the crying did not let up, he turned his ear to really listening to it.

“The sound was very close to an infant’s wail except that there was a touch of something under it. The more I pricked up my ears, the more I heard the throaty growl. I thought it might be a dog,” Ambrose paused, “Then I quickly put that out of my mind, since no dog I ever heard cried like a newborn baby. I should know having raised hunting dogs all my life.”

As Ambrose floated along, the crying got louder and louder. It encircled him and echoed around the bend.

“Then I saw it. A little baby Bigfoot. The little guy was completely soaked, its brown hair matted down, making it look skinny and frail. It must’ve slipped in the mud and fallen in the river. I splashed the paddle into the water. The little Bigfoot shook like a dog, shot a mean look in my direction, then slowly trudged up the slope toward the railroad trestle.”

Ambrose told his wife when he got home and she scolded him for teasing that poor little guy.

1952, Lake Eucha, Oklahoma: Bigfoot Displaced by Spavinaw Creek Dam

In 1952, Spavinaw Creek was dammed creating Lake Eucha. While the Cherokee were warned that their town was going to be submerged, the Bigfoot Colony that lived around the creek, did not.

The week the dam went live and the lake was created, the Cherokee witnessed a very angry Bigfoot Migration.  It included smashed car wind shields, crushed trash bins, and a rash of endlessly barking dogs.  Several of the tribal elders, recounted when they first put in the electricity to the town.  A similar Bigfoot event happened as the night grew brighter.

Where the Bigfoot went remains undetermined.  But they never did return to the Eucha area.

1958, North Bonneville, Washington: Bigfoot Family Makes First Appearance

Dennis Morgan and his family were driving across country in a recreation vehicle.  They stopped for the night in North Bonneville right near the Columbia Gorge.  As they were packing up their picnic table dinner, the oldest Morgan boy, Bob, shouted in surprise.

He pointed to the treeline, where a group of five figures moved back and forth.  The figures did not move like people.  In fact, they moved more like apes or very agile bears.  Dennis went into the RV to grab his camera equipment, while his wife Joanie, tried to get their boys inside.

Rick, their youngest at age 10, shouted that those figures were clearly a Bigfoot family!  And he started to run toward the group.  Erik, 12, took off after Rick, shouting that those things were going to eat him up.

Bob shouted to his dad to bring out the rifle.  But when Dennis finally emerged from the RV he was carrying all the camera bags.  There was no way he would get them unzipped, let alone set up in time, considering two of his sons were racing across the field shouting and waving their arms like silly people.

Joanie fainted.

The group at the treeline considered the boys running toward them.  The tallest and widest let out a powerful yell, then scooped up the littlest one, turned and went into the woods.  The female of the group grabbed the middle sized one by its hand and yanked it away from a beehive it was poking with a stick.

All the Morgan men’s description of the beasts differed wildly.  Even the drawings the boys made had major dependencies.   For instance, Rick had the fur dark red, while Erik had them all different colors.  While Bob said they looked more like brown bears than apes.  Dennis was bitterly disappointed that he did not get “the shot of a lifetime.”  A fact he continued to bemoan for the rest of his life.
