1978, Ecola State Park, Oregon : Bigfoot Hunter Becomes the Hunted

Amateur Bigfoot hunter Clarence Schutletter had been in the Ecola State Park for nearly a week. He had established a grid and was methodically scouring the terrain for any and all hints or evidence of a Sasquatch.

Schutletter had stopped to eat a baloney sandwich. It was a little after one o’clock in the afternoon. Schutletter felt that he was being watched. So he grabbed his 35mm camera and started scanning the area around him. He saw nothing.

The rest of the day, though, he could not shake the feeling that he was being followed – stalked even. At his campsite later that night, he was so uneasy that he could not sleep. Schutletter just felt something was watching him.

The following morning, Schutletter found hundreds of tracks circling his campsite. While the tracks overlapped so much it was impossible to definitively determine if the tacks were made by an animal or a Bigfoot. But Schutletter has a clear sense that the Bigfoot hunter became the Bigfoot huntee that night.
