1962, Clatsop Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot, Rat Hunter

Exterminator Barney Glazner was hiking around Clatsop Forest. He came upon some small rodent tracks in the snow. Being an expert in pests and rodents, Galzner recognized the tracks as a family of rats. This was an odd thing to see in the forest, let alone this time of year. So Glazner followed the tracks.

After ten or fifteen feet, Galzner noticed that the rat tracks disappeared. Instead, large Bigfoot tracks took over. Completely stamping out the little rat tracks. This startled and alarmed Glazner. He considered turning around and leaving, since Bigfoot really, really frightened him.

That is when he saw the hulking form of a large black Bigfoot couching down to examine something on the ground. The creature sniffed a few times, turned to look at Glazner for a full minute, before continuing to follow the rat tracks.

Glazner is not certain, but he thinks that the rats were the Bigfoot’s pets that somehow got away from him.

1977, Collings Mountain Trail, Oregon: Female Bigfoot Seen Nursing

Nature hiker, Travis Jonathan, was hiking along Collings Mountain Trail when he stumbled upon something he never forgot.

Jonathan stopped to retie one of his boots. He looked down into the space under a large rock outcropping and saw a hunched over hairy figure. The figure was too human to be a bear and too animal to be a human. Jonathan watched the figure for a few minutes. Finally, he saw it reposition itself.

Jonathan was looking a a mother Bigfoot nursing a baby Bigfoot. The mother looked up and made eye contact with Jonathan, then swung herself around so that he was looking at her back. She turned her head a few times to see if Jonathat was still watching.

Eventually, Jonathan snapped out of his amazement to realize he was being very rude to the mother and child. He turned and continued his hike.

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.
