1978, Heavener Runestone Park, Oklahoma: Strange Woodpiles Discovered

Dale and Chad Hunter were looking for the Heavener Runestone when the came upon a large woodpile. At first, Chad thought it was a debris left from illegal loggers. Dale quickly disabused his brother of this notion by pointing out that here was no evidence of logging activity.

As they moved on, they came upon two more woodpiles strangely and purposefully positioned. Chad began to suspect that these woodpiles were possibly made by local delinquents during a night of beer partying. Again, Dale scolded his brother saying that no stoner high schooler would have the time or patience to construct such a massive arrangement of ripped branches and broken trees.

The brothers hiked on. Once they arrived at the infamous stone carved by viking explorers of North America, Dale noticed something disturbing. Just over the ridge, not too far from where the two stood looking at the stone carving, was a Bigfoot dragging a small felled sapling behind its monstrous body.

Chad whooped when he saw the Bigfoot creating the woodpile, he felt vindicated in some manner. Though Dale said that the Bigfoot proved all of Chad’s theories incorrect, Chad was not hearing anything other than success. The brothers stood watching the Bigfoot slowly arrange the woodpile. The creature clearly had a specific purpose in mind as it constructed the pile. Ofter moving and rearranging specific branches. Once the pile was about five feet high, the bigfoot walked around it a few times before heading off toward the northeast.

The Hunter Brothers were unable to convince anyone that they, themselves, had not created the woodpiles as an elaborate Bigfoot Hoax.

1998, South Kingston Forest, Rhode Island:  Motorist Sees Several Woven Structures

Georgia Frohschammer was driving along through South Kingston Forest around dusk.  When she slowed to allow for a group of birds to flutter away out of the road, she noticed out the passenger window, several large structures.

“The looked like art objects, you know?  Big round cocoons made from interwoven twigs and branches,” Frohschammer recalled.

She pulled off to the side of the road to get a better look, “I just thought, ‘Well, now, if some young person or local artist went to all that trouble to put these things here, why should I not get a better look at them? You understand, I simply adore public artwork.”

“But as I approached the structures, I was immediately put off by the simply horrid smell and the abundance of flies.  It was just all so overwhelming, I was forced to turn around and head back toward my car.  And that is when I heard it…,” Georgia Frohschammer pauses visibly shaken by recalling the memory, “just the most piercing scream, I have ever heard and I worked as a midwife in Africa for many years.”

The scream made Georgia double her pace to the car, “Once inside, I do admit that I sped off.  Quite over the posted legal limits.”

1975, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, California: Park Ranger Sees Bigfoot Building a Nest

Park Ranger Robert Letterlight says he began seeing the strange nests in the lower branches of the Redwood trees a few months before he really took notice of one.  It was early in the morning when Letterlight says he came upon a hunched over big man gathering large branches and other forest floor debris.  Letterlight did not confront the man, “because something seemed a bit odd about this guy.”

What was odd was the fact that Letterlight was watching a grown Bigfoot collecting the materials for his new nest.  Something that did not immediately dawn on Letterlight, “I was sorta just mesmerized by the soft fur and gentle way the big creature moved and slowly, very carefully examined each new piece of wood.”

Letterlight claims he and the Bigfoot developed a friendship of sorts.  Letterlight says the two were connected by an unspoken bond.  “Of course, I did not speak his language and I am pretty sure his English was spotty at best.”

Still the Bigfoot managed to convey a lot of its story to the Park Ranger. For instance, the Bigfoot had outlived all his tribe and came to live out the rest of his days among the Redwoods.

Letterlight made several crude drawings of the Bigfoot, who called itself, G’Wyn’Ylll, but claims that the Bigfoot could not be photographed.  Every time, Letterlight attempted to take a picture, it did not develop or came out unfocused.  The Bigfoot says this is how his people have lived in the woods so long, no man-machine can do them harm or capture them.

Letterlight is widely discredited and seen as a crazy prankster among respected Cryptozoologists.

In order to respond to his critics and the mounting inconsistencies in his book, Letterlight wrote a book, A Cabin In The Trees, in which G’Wyn’Ylll The Bigfoot, takes Letterlight on a spiritual journey into the sense memory of the Bigfoot people.  Most of the book consists of an incoherent lineage of unpronounceable names and places.

Letterlight failed to sell many copies and the book soon fell out of print.
