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.
