1969, Malheur National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Pulls Ponytails of Hikers

Hippies, Gerry Klein and John Cielo, were smoking marijuana and hiking in Malheur Forest. They had stopped to eat some granola that Cielo’s old lady packed for them.

Suddenly, a large ape creature leaped over a nearby boulder and ran up to the two hippies. The pair immediately recognized the creature as a Bigfoot. Klein tried to offer the creature some of their granola, but the monster wanted none of that nuts and berries bullshit.

Angered that the two humans did not have junk food on them, the Bigfoot pulled the hippie’s ponytails really hard. Cielo claimed to have “a headache for like a week,” while Klein said the hair tug really “harshed his mellow.”

Once the Bigfoot pulled their hair, the hippies said it bounced off over the rocks, presumably looking for junk food else where.

1983, Stinkingwater Mountains, Oregon: Bigfoot Seen Fighting Lynx

James “Chip” Andersend tells a story about the time he was in Stinkingwater Mountains and he saw something completely unbelievable. That is the only thing his family and friends will agree with him on, that the story is unbelievable, but the fact that Chip hasn’t changed a single fact about the story, makes others he knows, believe that Chip, at least, believes the story he tells, even though, Chip does say it sounds unbelievable.

Chip claims that he saw a Bigfoot fighting several large lynx on a rocky ridge. The scuffle was short and very, very dusty, but Chip was able to tell that while the Bigfoot was outnumbered the creatures massive size and obvious strength worked to its advantage.

Chip heard a lot of growling and yelping and yowling, then saw the lynx pounce off down the ridge, like a kitten racing out of the litter box. The Bigfoot threw some rocks after the fleeing cats, then slowly continued on its way, seemingly unharmed or even scratched.

2003, US-26, Rhododendron, Oregon: Drivers See Several Bigfoot Crossing Road

Chris Tomlin and Dave Cambodia were driving along US-26, about 1000 feet from Belle Lake Road, Tomlin slammed on the breaks. Cambodia, not wearing his safety belt, hit the dash and dropped his phone.

Tomlin, usually loud and talkative, simply huffed and pointed at the windshield. Cambodia looked up and saw three Bigfoot standing in the middle of the road.

The Bigfoot were slowly walking across the road. The last one in line, also the largest, over 14 feet tall according to Tomlin, was scratching its rear end.

Cambodia claims he saw more Bigfoot off to the side of the road, waiting for the others in the trees. But Tomlin was too focused on watching the trio pad across the asphalt.

Once the Bigfoot were off the road, Tomlin swears that the largest one waved at them a taunting gesture. Cambodia, though, could not verify this, but agrees it probably happened.

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.

1970, Clackamas River, Oregon: Trucker Hears Screams

Doug Starlin was driving his pickup truck back from his mother’s house where he had just loaded up an old washing machine, when he heard some shrill, terrible screams.

He pulled to the side of the road and turned off his engine to get a better listen. The screaming came in three distinct bursts – one short screech, longer howl, and then a shorter screech again.

Starlin sat in his truck listening to the vocalizations for roughly 20 minutes, before they seemed to move away. They did not stop, they grew more distant and faint.

When Starlin described the screams to some friends, the three of them came to conclusion that it was most likely a couple Bigfoot communicating over a considerable distance.

1940, Rogue River National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Splashing in Waterfall

While collecting rock samples from a creek bed near a waterfall in the Rogue River Forest, Doug Porter was startled by a loud splash.

When he looked up the river, he saw a large hairy man sitting under the waterfall, splashing and growling with glee. Porter thought it was some sort of hobo or maybe a mountain man who came to wash himself. But on closer examination, he saw that the man was clearly a beast.

It was totally naked and completely covered in a fine dark hair, its facial features were more like an ape than a man, and its arms were much too muscular for a normal human. Porter saw its gigantic feet poking out of the stream and at once realized he was looking straight at a real live Bigfoot.

Since Porter was not a Bigfoot hunter, he stood up and ran as fast as he could out of there. He did not even return to collect his geology equipment.

1985, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Throws Snowballs

Daniel Cortland was taking photos for his family Christmas card in the Gifford Pinchot Forest. He had gotten some nice shots, but nothing that was really great.

As he plodded along through the snow, he saw a tree that was completely outlined in snow. As he inched closer for the perfect angle, he was hit in the head with a snowball. Startled he called out. He was immediately answered by a laughing howl. Then another snowball hit him. And another.

Cortland twirled around and tried to find the culprit. He spied a 12 foot hairy beast hiding behind one of the larger trees about 100 yards away. He raised his camera to get a shot of the Bigfoot, but only saw the white blur of the snowball that smacked into his camera.

Cortland called out angrily that his camera was off limits, but was answered only by a more intense barrage of snowballs. Completely humiliated, Cortland turned heel and ran away. The soft pad of snowballs followed as he ran.

Cortland remains surprised that when he tells of his Bigfoot encounter, most people believe everything except the creatures impeccable aim.
