2016, Uwharrie National Forest, North Carolina: Bigfoot Juice Experiment

Housewife and blogger Robyn Rook invented a juice that she claimed would attract Bigfoot. The unimaginatively named Bigfoot Juice was made from a secret combination of fruits and berries, native to North America. One person who tried the juice himself said it tasted a lot like ordinary cranberry juice.

In order to boost sales of her product, Rook orchestrated a publicity stunt in which she left big open vats of Bigfoot Juice around Uwharrie Forest. The local news sponsored the motion activated cameras set up to record the inevitable arrival of Bigfoot.

Unsurprisingly no Bigfoot showed up. Rook’s sales spiked, then dropped off completely. Rook stopped production of Bigfoot juice in 2017 and deleted her blog.

1965, Nantahala National Forest, North Carolina: Bigfoot Sounds Recorded

Audio Engineer, Steve Wholeater, ventured into Nantahala Forest to record bird calls for a project. The bird calls were commissioned by a Professor at a prestigious Northern University. Wholeater felt very fortunate that he landed this job.

Days later, as he edited the reel-to-reel tapes, that he discovered something fantastic. Completely unaware of it at the time, Wholeater recorded several minutes of Bigfoot hoots, tree knocking, and at least one long scream. At first, Wholeater was confused by the sounds he heard, but it became clear to him that what he recorded was exceptional in quality and rarity.

Over the next several months, Wholeater traveled the county playing his recordings to Bigfoot Hunters and leading Cryptozoologists. Each and every one of the professionals he played his recordings for were amazed. Many of them attempted to purchased the recordings from him. But Wholeater kept holing out for better, larger offers.

Sadly, Wholeater was killed in a fiery car cash along the California coast. It is widely believed that his recordings were destroyed in the same cash.

1996, Fires Creek Wildlife Area, North Carolina: Bigfoot Startled By Children

Pepper Wheeler tells the story of the time him and his brother and their brother’s friend startled a Bigfoot, then all three of them chased it off with sticks.

Wheeler and his brother and his brother’s friend were playing “forest pirates.” They were racing toward a little creek, pretending to chase some bandits who stole their gold. As they plunged through the woods, they were laughing and screaming and carrying on as kids do.

Wheeler recalls as the trio careened down the embankment toward the creek, they stopped dead in their tracks. About twenty feet from them, a black and brown Bigfoot crouched at the creek drinking water. The Bigfoot did not hear or see the boys until Wheeler’s brother’s friend picked up a rock and threw it at the creature.

The rock bounced off the shoulder of the Bigfoot who was so startled it feel into the creek. Almost totally soaked, the Bigfoot turned and howled at the boys, who responded with more rocks and sticks.

The Bigfoot was so ashamed that it ran across the creek in two long steps then off into the woods. Wheeler is not proud about how they treated that Bigfoot.

While demonstrating his method to local authorities, Franklin became so out of breath that he needed medical assistance.
