1973, Stone State Park, Iowa: Hikers Hear Bigfoot Screams

While hiking in Stone State Park, Tim Phelby and Elaine Davidson, got an overwhelming feeling that they were being followed.

At first they chalked it up to a pot induced paranoia. After all, they were in a public park, it was entirely possible that other people were behind them on the trail.

But Elaine, being much more in tune with the paranormal, got an oppressive feeling. The only other time she felt similar feelings was when she and Tim were at the Indian Graveyard.

Elaine begged Tim to stop so she might try and contact whatever spirit was stalking them. But Tim remained intent upon moving ahead. The couple bickered back and forth. As the discussion got more heated and a bit louder, Tim was startled by a loud shriek coming from behind them.

At first it sounded like something from Mutual Of Ohama’s Wild Kingdom. The next scream was even louder and closer. Elaine started shaking and called out for the restless spirits to rest. But Tim knew after the next scream, they were hearing the mating call of the North American Sasquatch.

When the two emerged from their hike, they remained divided over what exactly they heard. And continued to contradict each other whenever they retold their encounter.

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.
