1997, Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri: Bigfoot Tree Knocking Explained

Danny Katay was hiking through Mark Twain forest. He had heard this time of year two Bigfoot were often seen. The theory was that they were migrating West.

Katay neither heard nor saw any Bigfoot activity nor evidence. Until he heard three distinct tree knocks. He raced toward the direction of the knocking.

Katay came upon a clearing and saw the two Bigfoot. One over 12 feet tall and the small one closer to 9 feet. They were both holding large rocks in their massive hands. They took turns throwing the rocks at a nearby tree. The force of the rocks took the bark off the side of the tree.

Katay thinks that he discovered the origin of the majority of the tree knocking phenomenon. It is target practice. The Bigfoot must use rocks in hunting and defense.

1991, Trail of Two Forests, Washington: Bigfoot Cave Discovered

Eric Petersen was hiking about on the Trail of Two Forests. He came upon a hole in the ground, slightly off the trail, that he had never seen before. So Petersen stopped to investigate it.

Petersen slowly crawled into the new cave. He could tell that the cave was recently evacuated, because of the loose dirt and smell of fresh earth. The cave was filled with bones and car side mirrors. There was a bed of leaves in the corner. And there was a strong odor of animal body musk.

Petersen was certain that he was in a Bigfoot lair and not a homeless person’s nest. The large footprints and strings of hair that were clinging to the rocks around the bed of leaves were tell tale signs of the creature.

Petersen thought to wait to see if the creature returned to his lair, but as night began to fall, the possibility of being alone in the dark with a sleepy Bigfoot did not appeal to Petersen.

1996, Avacado Lake, California: Swimmers Attacked by Bigfoot

Teens Bailey Davidson and Stephanie Gonzales were swimming in Lake Avacado. The lake is notorious for the high number of drownings that occur each year. This statistic did not affect the teens’ choice to go for a swim though after their scary encounter that day, neither would ever swim in that lake again.

The girls were both accomplished swimmers, Davidson was on the high school swim team and Gonzales had been on the swim team.

As the two friends swam, something hairy and large came floating by them. At first, Davidson thought it was a log. Gonzales thought it might be a beaver. But when the hairy object got closer to the girls, they realized it was a huge humanoid creature.

Davidson recognized that the creature was a Bigfoot and she let out a ear splitting scream. The Bigfoot started trashing and splashing and growling and spitting as it kept swimming straight at the girls. Gonzales dove underwater and swam as fast as she could back to shore. While Davidson swam off in the other direction.

By the time the Bigfoot realized the girls had gone in opposite directions, it was too tired to do much more than float away on its back, sunning its massive, hairy belly.

1994, Winding Stair Campground, Texas: Bigfoot Tosses Thanksgiving Turkey

Jim Magnuson and his family were camping out over the long Thanksgiving Weekend. Jim’s wife Diann had brought a whole, traditional Thanksgiving feast. Jim was attempting to warm up some of the sides over a fire. The Magnuson kids were reading and playing near by.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, a 15 foot Bigfoot came rushing out of the woods. The creature overturned the picnic table, grabbing the 20 pound turkey under its massive arms like a tiny, miniture football. As the Magnusons huddled together, not believing what they were witnessing, the Bigfoot let out a loud yell.

The creature seemed to be mock the family as it reached its’ powerful arm backward to toss the lovingly cooked Thanksgiving turkey high above the tree line. The Bigfoot did a little dance, before running back into the woods.

The family immediately got into their car and drove home, abandoning all their camping equipment and what was left of the Thanksgiving Dinner.

1993, Niobara State Park, Nebraska: Bigfoot Blocks Road With Logs

While driving his RV out of Niobara Park, Strom Hickory came upon the most unusual road block he’d ever seen. Even after years of traveling the country alone, Hickory was well versed in all the unusual things one might encounter on the road. But the pile of logs that were neatly and methodically piled up in the middle of the two lane highway was something Hickory had never seen before.

As he sat there looking out the front window at the log road block, Hickory saw something peeking out over the pile. Hickory honked the RV’s horn a few times. That was when the Bigfoot stood up, waved its massive arms, screamed a high pitched scream, then turned and walked away.

Hickory was amazed and completely uncertain why the Bigfoot had made the road block or what it was clearly waiting to happen.

1997, Colville National Forest, Washington: Bigfoot Wounded By Gunman

Carl Smith was hiking deep in Colville Forest, when he saw a Bigfoot hiding behind a tree a few hundred feet in front of him.

Smith, an avid gun enthusiast, always carried a pistol while hiking, alone in the woods. Smith considered the fame and wealth he could achieve if he killed that Bigfoot and brought it to public attention. So he unholstered his weapon, carefully crept closer to his target, aimed and fired three quick shots at the beast.

The Bigfoot screamed in pain and blood splattered across the trees, so Smith knew he hit the creature. It turned and looked at him with the saddest, most disappointed eyes ever, before scrambling away. Amazed at the Bigfoot’s speed, Smith could not get another volley off at the monster.

Smith examined the spot where the Bigfoot was wounded. Hair and skin and blood were plastered on the leaves and fallen twigs. Smith is sure that it was a mere flesh wound and that the Bigfoot survived, no problem.

Smith tried to sell his story, but it turns out that most people thought he was a jerk for trying to kill the elusive creature.

1998, Big Horn National Forest, Wyoming: Campers Rushed by Bigfoot

Campers Kristen Murphy and Elaine Gelles were sleeping in their tents in Bighorn National Forest. There was not a cloud in the sky, so the moon lit up the area. Around 3 AM, Gelles awoke suddenly. She had heard something moving around their campsite.

Gelles peeked out of her tent to see a brownish hairy figure creeping around. She curled up in the middle of her tent and held her breath. Hoping whatever it was outside her tent would just go away.

Meanwhile, Murphy, also, awake in her own tent heard the sniffling and grunting of the animal outside. While she did not brave a peek, she did see the shadow of the man-creature on the side of her tent.

The next morning the two friends exchanged notes about what they had witnessed and found Bigfoot tracks around some of the trees near their campsite. They packed up and did not spend another night at that location.
