1963, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin: Bigfoot Raft Launch

Monty Pruitt was smoking cigarettes by the river. He was still upset about being dragged out to on this family vacation. He wanted to go to the water park they just opened, but get eaten alive by fleas.

As Pruitt flicked a cigarette butt into the water, he saw a Bigfoot emerge from the bushes. Pruitt watched in awe as the gigantic creature crept to the edge of the water. It was holding in its hands a small wooden raft. It was maybe the size of a two by four.

The creature ever so gently launched the toy raft into the river. The Bigfoot clapped and seemed to laugh with delight as the little raft floated away. The monster chased after it, obviously very happy with the toy raft’s successful launch.

Pruitt went back to his family and reported what he saw, but none of them believed it.

2010, Devil’s Lake Park, Wisconsin: Drunk Lady is Pushed Off Cliff by Bigfoot

Ashlee Price had been partying and drink Bud Lights all afternoon when she wandered away from her friends. Price was upset about something Vicky said to Connor about something that happened at Taylors two weeks ago. Which was totally NOT true.

Price stumbled up an undesignated part off West Bluff Trail. She thinks she may have been looking for somewhere to pee. Suddenly a large creature rushed at her and shoved her down. She looked up at the monster and recongized it as a Bigfoot.

As she scrambled backward, the Bigfoot kept approaching her. Price managed to stand up. That is when the Bigfoot pushed her again, this time send her over the side of a 25 foot drop.

She broke her leg and elbow in the fall. He friends came running when they heard the gleeful howling laughter of the Bigfoot. The monster was doing a little dance and pointing and howling with what Price interpreted as mockery of her.

Price made a full recovery, but had a difficult time convincing the authorities that a Bigfoot pushed her and not one of her drunk friends.

2003, Kettle Moraine Forest, Wisconsin: Man Bumps into Bigfoot

While taking an after lunch hike in Kettle Moraine Forest, Eric Searles claims he was nearly knocked over by a rushing Bigfoot.

“There I was just walking through the forest, when straight from behind a couple trees comes this large brown creature running straight at me,” Searles recounted over the phone, “I barely had time to register it as anything other than a brown blur.”

“But as the creature rushed past me, first I smelled it’s horrible oniony body stink, then as it towered over me, I knew it was a Bigfoot. There had been a rash of sightings of the guy for about a month. I am not sure where he was going in such a hurry, but he nearly knocked me over.”

Searles claims that he was too shocked to try and follow the Bigfoot. He claims he was not frightened at all by the encounter.

1885, Hermit Island, Wisconsin: Miners Find Bigfoot Tracks

Jacob Franklin and Abner Curtis were walking back from the brownstone quarry. It had lightly snowed again since they left the house they shared.

Curtis noticed the tracks before his fellow stone cutter. The footprints were over 13 inches long, clearly left by bare feet, and spaced apart indicating that the stride was of a very tall person.

Curtis stayed with the tracks while Franklin ran to gather up other witnesses. Franklin returned a half an hour later with only two other miners. No one else wanted to leave their warm houses to look at foot prints.

Franklin theorized the next day that the impressions were left by a malevolent Indian ghost. Curtis was skeptical of that explanation, he leaned more toward some sort of creature. Either way, the miners had a good laugh at the two for many weeks afterward.

Mark Remington was walking along Bellrichard Bridge about dusk. He stopped midway across to watch the Rock River and finish his cigarette. Remington noticed something odd just under him on the bridge. It looked to him like a person was hanging and swinging from under the road.

As traffic whizzed by Remington leaned over the side just as the monstrous form leaped into the air. In a brown blur of fur and skin, the creature performed a perfect swan dive down into the river.

Remington watched in awe and astonishment as the creature surfaced, blew a stream of water out of its mouth, before diving back under the water to swim away. Its massive feet kicking up foamy waves in its wake.

Remington is not completely sure that what he saw that day was inhuman, but he is fairly certain that he might have seen a Bigfoot dive into the Rock River. Or possibly the hairiest hobo in all of human history.

1963, Superior National Forest, Wisconsin: Family Hears Bigfoot Calls

Joey Rice was camping with her family. Her husband Frank had taken John and JoAnn down to the lake to swim. Joey remained at camp to cook dinner. She admits now, she stayed behind to drink beers she had hidden in the station wagon.

As she sat near the tents and sipped her warm beer, she heard an noise that scared her to the core. It was a high pitched screech that pierced the afternoon air. It grew higher and higher then sank into a low gurgly growl. The cry lasted over 2 minutes. For the whole time Joey heard it, she sat frozen. When it stopped, she noticed that she was shaking.

She quickly downed the rest of the beer. Just as she popped open the second one, the rest of her family came rushing out the woods. They were equally disturbed by the inhuman cry they all just heard.

The Rices were so frightened that they promptly loaded into the car and drove out of the forest. They left behind them over 200 dollars worth of camping equipment and summer wear. Years later, when JoAnn was getting married the family finally spoke about the incident. They all agreed that the noise they heard that day was Bigfoot in origin.

2000, Mud Lake #2, Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin: Bigfoot Mocks Fisherman

George Jason was fishing in the early morning at Mud Lake #2. He had caught two catfish. He was in good spirits, even though it felt like it had started to rain.

Just as George Jason rebaited his hook, he saw a brown mass floating toward him. At first, he thought it was a dead animal, maybe a dog or raccoon. George Jason went back to his hook and bait, not giving the floating debris a second glance.

That is until the mass doubled under itself and splashed water toward him. Surprised, George Jason gasped when he looked up to see a Bigfoot standing in the five foot deep water. The creature was completely soaked, which made it look all the more dangerous, George Jason thought.

The Bigfoot pointed at him. It made a noise that sounded like laughter, then threw its arms into a pantomime of fly fishing. It tilted its head back and cackled with laughter. George Jason was so frightened he just stared at the Bigfoot, the bait slipping through his quivering fingers.

Bigfoot pointed at George Jason, then slapped its massive hand against its dripping wet chest. The the Bigfoot bend over slightly, swung its arm into the water, as a wave swirled near its shoulder, the creature stood to full height again. Only now, the Bigfoot held three to six wiggling fish inbetween its massive fingers.

The creature held the fish up high forĀ  George Jason to see, then reared its head back and roared with monsterous laughter. George Jason claims, to this day, this is why he quit fishing.
