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.

2000, Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska: Bigfoot Technology Unearthed

2000, Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska: Bigfoot Technology Unearthed

Dr. Armando Redlawn and his archaeological team uncovered strange artifacts while excavating the coast of Mink Island in the Katmai National Park.

The artifacts consisted of a strange musical instrument surrounded by necklaces of semiprecious stones underneath a unusually wide wooden boat. Upon further investigation, Dr. Redlawn became convinced that these artifacts were not of human origin. The age and craftsmanship was unlike any other indigenous people’s crafts.

Dr. Redlawn and his team ran some sensitive scientific tests which determined that the beads were carved with stone tools and the wood used in the boat construction came from hundreds of miles away. Dr. Redlawn theorized that the boat and artifacts were part of the Great Bigfoot Migration. Dr. Redlawn speculates that due to tribal tensions a group of Bigfoot left the California coastal area by boat to slowly move up toward Alaska.

Dr. Redlawn refuses to share anything but the most grainy photographs of his findings with the public. Dr. Redlawn justifies this by claiming that Bigfoot Scholarship is filled with cranks and quacks.

1982, Chena River, Alaska: Hunter Shoots Bigfoot

Steve “Bucky” Calhoun was hunting goat in the Chena River State Park. It was his third day tracking and waiting, but failing to find a singer goat or other large game animal. The day was overcast and evening as approached, Bucky thought about the long drive home empty handed.

Just as he sat down to further contemplate the Monday morning ridicule from the guys at work, he hear a rustling behind him. Bucky slowly turned around to face the noise. In the growing darkness, he was certain he saw a large creature prowling about. He squinted to get a better look at it. Then he leveled his rifle and trained his sight upon it.

He watched it creep about. It was huge. Over 15 feet tall. Very hairy and with massive paws that torn at the branches around it. Bucky realized he aimed his rifle at a genuine Bigfoot. Shaking slightly, Bucky took the shot.

He heard the bullet crack into a tree. The rustling stopped as a bunch of birds flew from the bushes around the stump. Bucky ran over to the spot he just shot at. It was only upon close investigation that he realized what he was certain was a Bigfoot was a burned tree stump the entire time. Bucky felt stupid, but not stupid enough to keep his misadventure to himself.
