1998, Big Horn National Forest, Wyoming: Campers Rushed by Bigfoot

Campers Kristen Murphy and Elaine Gelles were sleeping in their tents in Bighorn National Forest. There was not a cloud in the sky, so the moon lit up the area. Around 3 AM, Gelles awoke suddenly. She had heard something moving around their campsite.

Gelles peeked out of her tent to see a brownish hairy figure creeping around. She curled up in the middle of her tent and held her breath. Hoping whatever it was outside her tent would just go away.

Meanwhile, Murphy, also, awake in her own tent heard the sniffling and grunting of the animal outside. While she did not brave a peek, she did see the shadow of the man-creature on the side of her tent.

The next morning the two friends exchanged notes about what they had witnessed and found Bigfoot tracks around some of the trees near their campsite. They packed up and did not spend another night at that location.

2001, Sweetwater River Campground, Wyoming: Hiker Terrorized In Tree

While hiking around Sweetwater River Park, Nick Pontsingle claims he was chased by a Bigfoot. Pontsingle claims the monster came lumbering out of the bushes holding a big branch that it swung back and forth at Pontsingle.

The Bigfoot was growling and inching closer and closer to Pontsingle, who was standing very still. It became clear that the Bigfoot intended to swat Pontsingle with the branch, so he turned and ran away.

Pontsingle clambered up a tree, hoping to escape the rushing Bigfoot. As Pontsingle climbed high into the branches, the Bigfoot stood under the tree and growled and waved its hairy arms. The creature would try shake the tree. Would leave for a few minutes, returning with rocks that it knocked on the trunk. When that didn’t work the Bigfoot left, it returned with a large stick that it tried stabbing into the upper branches.

In the two hours that Pontsingle was trapped in the tree, the Bigfoot tried several other ways to shake him out of the tree. Never did the Bigfoot try to climb up after him. This, Pontsingle, believes is because the Bigfoot was afraid of heights.

Eventually, around sundown the Bigfoot sighed heavily, turned and left the area.

1983, Little Belt Mountains, Wyoming: Hikers Chased by Wild Bigfoot

Becky and William McRoberts had spent the day hiking around the Little Belt Mountains area in Wyoming. They came upon a particularly dense area of the woods. Becky noticed the slight tempeture drop and asked William if they could backtrack out of the area. After looking at his map, William decided that they should keep pressing forward since there was a road less than half a mile away.

About five minutes after this conversation the McRoberts heard some rustling behind them. Then they heard tree knocking, followed by a mournful howl. Becky became quiet alarmed, but William assured her to keep going. Soon enough though the noises seemed to be coming from in front of the couple, instead of behind them.

Becky begged William to stop so they could get a bearing on where the sounds were coming from, but he refused. As they stood arguing about it, a large Bigfoot stepped into view about 20 yards away. The couple described it as over 9 feet tall, orange in color, and with the most yellow eyes possible. It smelled like fish and body odor.

When the Bigfoot waved at them, Becky screamed and ran away. William took a second to figure out what was happening and followed her. For the next twenty minutes or so the Bigfoot chased the couple through the woods. Just when they would stop to catch their breath, the creature would pop up and growl at them. This scared them into running again.

Eventually, the couple got away from the monster. Or more likely the Bigfoot grew bored with its little game. The McRoberts consider themselves very lucky to be alive.

1948, Upper Crater Lake, Wyoming: Bigfoot Sunning on Phantom Ship Island

William Drexler’s campsite overlooked Phantom Ship Island. He had just finished his sasauge and egg breakfast and was smoking his morning pipe, just looking out over Crater Lake. That is when he noticed something moving on Phantom Ship Island.

Drexler got out his binoculars. It took him a minute or two before he was able to get a good bead on the moving figure. What Drexler saw was a brownish grey Bigfoot, obviously soaking wet, stretching out on some rocks near the water’s edge. The creature was luxuriated. Drexler watched the creature for awhile lounge in the sun. Then after a bit the Bigfoot climbed to the other side of the island and Drexler lost sight of it.

Drexler told his friends about the encounter, but his friends convinced him that Bigfoot was a terrible swimmer and he must be mistaken about what he saw. To this day, Drexler remains confused about the whole scene.
