2010, Payette National Forest, Idaho: Bigfoot Tears Up Saplings

Park Ranger George Guenther was checking on a new growth area in Payette National Forest. He was charged with counting the new saplings.

As Guenther sat in his jeep making notes on his grid, he was suddenly surprised to see a figure come bounding through the area. The creature was clearly a Bigfoot given its massive size and two foot long stride.

Guenther watched in horror as the monster started pulling up the new little trees. It would swing the uprooted sapling over its head then let the tree fly through the air in random directions.

Guenther counted four trees destroyed this way, before in his anger he started honking the horn and flashing his lights. The Bigfoot was scared off and ran back they way it had come.

In hindsight, Guenther feels lucky the creature did not attack his jeep.

1875, Selmier Forest Area, Indiana: Bigfoot Terrorizes Family

Reverend Lepton McKinney and his family of 12 were camping on their way from California to New York, where Rev. McKinney was told by God to found his new church.

Over several hours, beginning around midnight, the McKinney family was terrorized by a howling, crying, and violently screaming creature just beyond their campsite. Rev. McKinney certain it was the Devil come to stop his progress across the states, led the family in hours a serious and earnest prayer.

Several of the McKinney children, including the eldest Malachi, claim to have seen a 15 foot creature with the flat face of an ape and the body of a man, jump from tree to tree.

The following morning, members of the McKinney family searched the area and found deep claw marks on the tee trunks and large deep foot prints.

Reverend McKinney would talk of the night that he beat the devil back into his hole with the power of prayer. His children were just tankful that whatever monster was out there, did not eat them all right up.

2011, Priest Lake State Park, Idaho: Family Sees Bigfoot in Rear View Mirror

The Singh family was on its way home from a vacation around Priest Lake State Park. As the car sped along the two lane road, little Veronica Singh yelled. She claimed to have seen a Bear Man on the side of the road.

Everyone in the car turned around to look, except Nip Singh who was driving. Nip looked in the rear view mirror.

Sure enough, about 100 yards behind the family’s SUV was a 12 to 14 foot Bigfoot standing in the middle of the road. Jamie Singh begged his father to stop the car so they could try and get a better look, but his mother Jenny Singh told her husband that he better not stop.

The car actually sped up and the Bigfoot got smaller and smaller as the family drove farther away.

2010, Harriman State Park, Idaho: Hikers See Bigfoot

Amy Castelli and Debbie Handy were hiking along the Heart Attack Hill trail. They were talking about tv shows and the new job the Handy applied for but had not heard anything back, when the saw something moving near the river bed.

Castelli at first thought it was a hunter or maybe a man in a camouflage suit. But Handy, who admittedly has better eyesight, recognized the figure as a Bigfoot right away.

Handy put her arm out to stop Castelli from taking another step. They both stood absolutely still, holding their breath, watching as the Bigfoot sloshed around in the wetlands around the riverbed.

The creature splashed around a bit more, taking no notice of the two ladies near by watching it. Eventually, the Bigfoot turned and ran at top speed off across the opposite field and disappeared into the trees.

Castelli and Handy love to recount how they had a hiking date with Bigfoot. Though, it is possible that the Bigfoot would characterize it as a date.

1995, Targhee National Forest, Idaho: Police Officer Shoots at Bigfoot

Off duty police officer, Walter Norman was driving home along Old Chick Creek Road. Suddenly, his car was hit with rocks. At first, Norman thought he hit a pothole, but when the rocks started falling on the hood and roof of his car, he knew he was under attack.

Norman pulled to the side of the road. He used the spotlight on the side of his car to scan the bushes and trees. That is when Norman saw a black mass, over five feet wide and darkening over 12 feet high. When he shown the spotlight directly on it, the mass only got darker.

Norman saw the mass throw a rock at his car which hit the back widow. Norman jumped out of his car and identified himself as police. The mass tossed more rocks at him, at which point Norman fired several shots into the mass. There was a monstrous scream and then a tremendous rustling as the mass scurried off into the woods away from the road.

Norman crept over to where the black mass had been. He noticed a thick reddish fluid which was consistent with blood and tufts of dark black hair. Norman left convinced that he had been attacked by a Bigfoot and had, at least, wounded the creature.

1983, Backbone State Park, Iowa: Snowmobile Riders Hear Howls

While riding their rented snowmobiles along some trails in Backbone Park, Amanda and her brother Bert Vikingstone heard a deep, sonorous rumbling that caused them to stop. Fearing something was wrong with one of the motors of the snowmobiles, Bert cut his engine while ordering his sister to keep hers idling.

Listening carefully to the hum of the motor, Bert and Amanda were startled to hear the rumbling grow in pitch and volume. The noise became a whoop that shook the tree tops. Amanda turned off her snowmobile and the two siblings sat listening to the noisy undulations.

The whoop turned into a shriek before it suddenly ceased. Frightened now, the brother and sister started the snowmobiles, turned around and raced back the way they came.

Later, while Amanda tried to imitate the sound they heard, the owner of the snowmobile rental informed the pair that they were lucky because they had heard the cries of a Bigfoot. Some people wait their whole lives and never ever hear even a peep.

Amanda believed what they heard was a Bigfoot, while Bert remains incredulous.
