Sasquatch/Bigfoot Or Something Else Scares River Valley Explorer In Edmonton Alberta


Date:  Weekend of the 13th – 14th, 2014
Time:  Daylight sighting.

Hi my name is (name removed) I am a very avid River Valley explorer in Edmonton. I spend on average 30 hours a week hiking the ravines off trail River Valley spots and the very remote areas.

I was in Sheriff Patterson ravine, deep off the trail just quietly walking and taking pictures when I heard a loud noise in the trees on the opposite side of the ravine.

It scared me, so I crouched down to let it pass. When I crouched down it seemed to stop moving as well. That is when it really started to scare me, so I stayed very still.

I waited about a minute and then it ran through the trees very quickly and was outta sight. At first, I thought it was a deer because of its size and colour, but when it ran by it clearly was not a deer, it was larger and moved nothing like a deer, wolf , or bear.

It moved almost like a human, but a lot faster. I was then scared, absolutely shitless and briefly went to check for tracks, finding no animal paw prints, my fear reached a staggering level.

I hightailed it out of the ravine and back to my car sweating, panting trying to figure out what I had just saw. I don't know what it was, but I think it deserves further more investigation.

I went back the next day and looked for tracks again, but all I found was broken trees and trampled bush and grass. This happened last weekend and I have been bothered by it since.

I have not went back to this spot in particular, but I want to. That same day I found a den sort of shelter made of rocks piled up, not your typical shelter a human would make.

I think it's living there and it scares the crap out of me to go back, but curiosity eventually will get the best of me. I need some help with this one.

If anyone has witnessed the lights/objects, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Sasquatch ? - Prince George British Columbia Canada


Posted by Mel.

I heard the most angelic 1 whoop sound at about 2:00 a.m – 3:00 a.m. when having a cigarette outside. The next morning I noticed my bear proof garbage can was open and contents gone through. There was a few bags on ground ripped open.

This was in late September 2013 in Prince George, British Columbia Canada. PS same day.

I have been attracting them by howling from a moving car, so my sound echoed through the ravine below about 2 blocks from home. The same ravine with a creek runs along my property.

Diamond Driller Finds Sasquatch Tracks In The Harrison Lake And Up Toward The Fraser Canyon In British Columbia Canada


I live in Merritt and am very interested in the Sasquatch. Do you know of any sightings around this area of British Columbia?

Thank you for your reply, I could not find anything about Martindale’s sighting, it really does not matter. I seen the tracks when I was diamond drilling on the east side of Harrison Lake up toward the Fraser Canyon.

It walked up where we had a wash tub tied with wire to catch water for the drill, the property we were drilling was (company name removed) and it was a molly property (Molybdenite) and after we saw the tracks, we were told by the owner of the claims that (name removed) from Hope was packing samples out of there years before and they were struck by a blizzard and they found a cave to take shelter in and then got looking around in the cave and found beds lined with grass that were up off the floor, he assumed they were Sasquatch beds.

I thought you might like to know about this, Spuzzum was where you would have come out in the Fraser Canyon if we had of continued on through the mountains.

Image Below: Map of Harrison Lake, B.C. and the surrounding areas.



There was a hot springs down the valley from the camp where we would go and bathe/soak some evenings and that was the same area that the cave was supposed to be in. There was a path down to the hot springs that we used and it was made by game in the area, although we used to see a female grizzly with a cub, she treed my helper once when he went down to the camp for gasoline.

We had to go looking for him when he never returned and he was in the top of a cedar tree hollering to watch out for the bear. I also think the path was used  by the Sasquatch, but we never looked for tracks as we had not yet seen the tracks up above the tree-line where we worked.

We also had a prospector that walked the area picking up samples and he was never bothered by the Grizzly as he tied a metal pie plate around his neck and hit it with his hunting knife as he walked.

He said the early warning was what the bears needed.

Hope you find this interesting.

Thank you to the fellow for passing along the information as it is important to have, also I know there is a lot of Sasquatch activity all throughout the area there. So if anyone has seen Sasquatch through the areas mentioned in this report, would you please be kind enough to write to me with a detailed report. Please write to Brian Vike – The Vike Factor at sighting@telus.net

Thank you.

The Castle Project: Denver’s Haunted Mansion


Did Someone Say Halloween?

Coming to DVD and Digital Platforms (VOD) on October 1, 2013

Los Angeles, CA (September 25, 2013) – Would you buy a  haunted house if it came on the market? Despite a colorful history involving tales of Satanism, mysterious deaths, eerie noises and ghostly sightings, architect Brian Higgins and business partner Travis McAfoos were compelled to purchase the 19th century Croke-Patterson mansion in Denver, Colorado. The Castle Project: Colorado’s Haunted Mansion is their odyssey into the paranormal as they renovate the stately brick mansion into a bed & breakfast. The documentary film will be available on DVD and VOD platforms on October 1, 2013, just in time for Halloween!

The building’s most notable haunting activity occurred during the 1970’s when the dwelling was undergoing renovations to convert it into office space, which some believed to have disturbed the spirits. After completing work, the construction crews would return the following day to find their work from the day before, undone.  After several instances, the contractor purchased a pair of Doberman Pinschers as guard dogs.  Soon after, the workers arrived to find the dogs lying dead on the sidewalk after jumping from a closed third floor window.

It wasn’t long into the more modern renovations that architect Higgins’ crew started to notice some odd occurrences and he picked up a camera, resulting in his directorial debut. “Once I had read all the stories on the Internet of the Croke-Patterson Mansion, I realized that somebody needed to make a movie about this.  It seems like every past owner I came in contact with had a story to tell.  Could there possibly be any truth to these stories?” says director Brian Higgins.

At the outset, Higgins set up a camera doubtful of discovering anything. After the discovery of a dead, mutilated cat followed by workers who claimed to have seen of ghostly apparitions, he moves into one of the upstairs bedroom, by his lonesome while the camera records.  Soon, bats are appearing from nowhere and he hears whispering voices through the halls.  And then there’s an unexplained fire.  Is the house really haunted?

Architectural clues and artifacts found within the walls and foundations allude to a very “otherworldly” blueprint and soon the paranormal investigators and spiritual experts are brought in to investigate.

 Synopsis:

The historic Croke-Patterson Mansion in Denver, Colorado was long-rumored to be haunted by the cries of babies buried in the basement. The original owner built the Chateauesque-style home in 1891 and lived there for six months before falling victim to the Silver Crash of 1893. Ill fortune visited upon subsequent owners during the 120-year‐long history of the house as they experienced otherworldly phenomena that included apparitions, whispering voices, peculiar odors, failed exorcisms and guard dogs jumping through windows to their death.

When architect Brian Higgins and partners purchase the home for renovation, they are skeptical of the home’s tragic past. But soon workers begin to experience sightings of ghostly children, unusual temperature changes and whispering voices. Workers fall ill and one team member dies while an unexplained fire threatens the project’s completion. Paranormal investigators are brought in and they identify several generations of spirits who remain trapped in the house.

Higgins had the foresight to begin filming, and after several hair‐raising nights spent alone in the building he began to wonder if there was a reason why souls never checked out at the Croke‐Patterson Mansion.

Possible Sasquatch Or ? Sighting On China Nose Mountain Outside Of Houston British Columbia (Pictures)



(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Posted by Brian.

Date:  August 6, 2013
Time:  Daytime.

Brian Vike’s Note: China Nose Mountain is just a short distance from Houston, so I jumped into the Jeep and took the drive out to the area. Beautiful and rugged country and certainly a great place for something odd to be hanging about.

I had gone to the area over 2 days, also ventured in from the backside of China Nose Mountain and was not able to find any signs of anything unusual, but one has to remember, covering the entire area is almost impossible to do for me.

I have heard from folks that an area from the non working Equity mine down Foxy Creek has produced sightings of Sasquatch. This area runs in behind China Nose Mountain. I am looking for others who have been witness to Sasquatch or anything else out of the norm for this area. Please do write to Brian Vike (Houston, B.C.) sighting@telus.net All your personal information says private. Thank you.

Here is a link to China Nose Mountain thanks to Houston Hikers.

Hi Mr. Vike:

 I live in Bellingham, Washington, and was visiting family this past week-end.

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, my mother, 2 cousins, and I just finished watching 2 other cousins, brother, and sister and  brother-in-law, climb to the top of Taszuul, aka China Nose Mountain, north-west of Burns Lake BC.

The photo below is of China Nose Mountain and taken by the people who had the encounter.


Attached is a picture and video of an encounter that really is unbelievable. We noticed what we initially thought was someone ascending the face of the mountain.  At first, we cited another climber, but with the rapid climb, we figured a goat, but there are no black goats.

We yelled to those on the mountain and then texted our cousin that whatever it was, it was heading upward close to their area quickly. Whatever it was stopped.

Three of us had cameras and interestingly, 3 out of four had immediate trouble with their cameras. One was having trouble and shaking.

Photo Left: Another shot of China Nose Mountain and surroundings.

We thought Sasquatch? Alien? Who is going to believe us and decided to go up the road to pick berries and when we returned, that figure was gone. Many do not believe us when we share our experience.

Few state four witnesses could not be discounted and urged me to review your website, and provide you with my photo and video. My hope is you can corroborate our story. I believe my cousins would also be willing to share their pictures and/or video with you.

This is not a hoax and if you wish to contact me, you can respond to this message or contact me at (phone number removed). My cousin’s photo is much better and these ones may be the ones taken beforehand, but please review.

Since I am on vacation it’s much better to contact me via email.

 Respectfully.

Additional Information And Photos:

Hi, I'm back in Washington. We had an MVA in Fraser Lake and are fine, but shaken.

I don't believe that picture shows the black object we saw. I think that might be a crevasse. What we saw was larger than the people on top and it was ascending. It wasn't a crevasse nor was it a shadow.

The photo below shows one of the women pointing in the area where they saw the figure on China Nose Mountain. 


 I hope it is identified. The best that can be done is to cross reference it and the videos with a recent photo.

On the same note, I’m an RN of 19 years and before I left B.C. in 2002 to travel, I hiked atop with my sister and brother. Atop the first climb in a grassy area in the tree-line.

I was the first to get to that point, I heard the bush move and a huge thump that my sister and I both felt. We thought it was a bear or goat, but I turned around and told the others to hurry and didn't want to scare them. My sister saw the scared look in my eyes and also felt this movement on the earth

I’m sending another photo, I think the object is smaller than that crevasse looking thing that looks like a climber.

Possible Sasquatch Sighting On China Nose Mountain Outside Of Houston British Columbia



A sighting of something took place on August 6, 2013. From the sounds of it, a dark figure like person was seen ascending the face of the mountain.

Brian Vike Hears Additional Information About Sasquatch Happenings In Moricetown British Columbia (Short Audio)


(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Mel.

New: This short audio clip has never been heard before. I did drive up and investigated the Sasquatch tracks in the snow, it was awesome, and the tracks went on and on. It was the most amazing thing I seen when dealing with Sasquatch.

There is a drop off in the audio (I removed some personal information)for 23 seconds, then we return chatting.

Melvina shares information about her brothers dog that was apparently torn apart, by "something" and a good number of dogs have gone missing from the town there, they believe Sasquatch is behind this. Also she mentioned two other sightings in the area.

Two truckers saw Sasquatch crossing the Highway at Moricetown and this would have been the same Sasquatch I went to investigate. Later Melvina told me about some years before this sighting took place, that a Sasquatch ripped apart the smoke house and got into the salmon.

This audio clip comes from a quick telephone interview for directions to the ladies home in Moricetown, B.C. over the Sasquatch sighting, to let them know I was going to be on my way. When I did arrive, there was a lot of folks gathered around. Many, many reports of Sasquatch come out of this area as I heard stories from others in the area.

There will be stacks of new audios to come that I never made public, mostly never had alot of time. My many thanks to Mel for posting all of this information that I gathered over the years.
All of the never heard audios, and large cases will be posted onto my main blog, Brian Vike, The Vike Factor - http://the-v-factor-paranormal.blogspot.ca/

Sasquatch Lifts Truck Onto It’s Side North Of The Strathcona Dam Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia



I live in Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia and have had experiences like that person had. You wouldn’t believe I will not go into the woods alone anymore, not even in my truck.

I had my truck lifted and placed on the passenger side one night while parked waiting for a friend just north of the Strathcona Dam right on the Gold River Highway.

Whatever it was ran right back into the bush where it had come from and screamed exactly like the guys on the “Finding Bigfoot” show. I took off right away and called the police and all I got was laughed at since there was no damage done to my truck.

Vike Factor Note: The person who sent this report to me, could you please send an email to me at sighting@telus.net, thanks a bunch.

Possible Bigfoot Sounds Hear Along The Mattatuck Trail Plymouth Connecticut


Date:  July 2012
Time:  Approx: 3:15 a.m.

I was heading back home on by Route 262 when I heard strange sounds in the Plymouth, CT area on the Mattatuck Trail in the state forest at night.

This is a dense area hilly and very heavy wooded and this is only about 10 minutes away from Waterbury, CT.

Plymouth is like a whole different state, not very populated and the sounds I heard were not coyotes or owls. I the best way for me to describe them is like a grunting sound with higher pitches.

I've been in very heavy woods throughout the state and never heard sounds like this before. I'm a fairly large man, but the noise scared me and I walked as fast I could back to my truck.

Did Hikers Accidentally Take A Picture Of Sasquatch While Hiking In Jasper Alberta Canada ?


I have had a sighting 10 years ago. I was 15 and we went on a hike up a mountain in Jasper, Alberta Canada.

A friend and my sister needed to go to the bathroom while on this hike, so we drifted into thicker bush.

We have a camera that would go off if you hit it hard. So as we were running into the bush, it went off and took a picture (trying to find it since Bigfoot hunting has become so popular), but it took a picture of what looks like a hairy thing standing on two feet with a head shaped like an ape.

Will post if I find the picture.

Loud And Bellowing Whoop Sound Hear By Witnesses In Naugatuck State Forest Connecticut (Bigfoot)


Date:  January 5, 2013
Time:  12:20 p.m.

On Saturday, January 5th, 2013, my girlfriend and I heard a very loud and bellowing "whoop" that lasted for several seconds.

This happened around 12:20 p.m. in the afternoon in Naugatuck State Forest, CT.

It sounded like we were roughly 20-30 yards away. I will be returning to the forest on Saturday 19th.

Awful Smell And Loud Screams Scare Hunters At Winthrop Washington (Possible Bigfoot)


Date:  October 1993
Time:  Approx: 8:00 a.m.

I was hunting with my brother in Winthrop below First Butte Lookout. The area is mostly dry, evergreen trees, plenty of open spaces, rocky and steep. We usually stay in the higher open areas, but on this day we decided to trek further down the mountain and walk out to the road (which I would guess to be about 5 – 7 miles below).

We, most of the time, stay together when we are walking. After a while of continuing downward, the scenery changed drastically. There was many deciduous trees, lots of brush, moisture on the ground, and the tree canopy made it fairly dark.

I do specifically remember smelling what I describe as skunk cabbage, which made sense because of the moist, dark surroundings. As we were walking, we had to change directions and walk around a huge thicket that was impassible.

All of a sudden we heard two very loud screams, which I describe as a large moo that lasted several seconds come from the thick brush (about maybe 20 yards away). Raised on a farm, I know what cows sound like and it was not a cow.

It was a very loud, low yell that went to a higher pitch, but lasted what seemed like 10 seconds each. Being scared out of our minds, we jumped behind a log and drew our rifles towards the area.

Whatever it was sounded like it was coming right at us. It was breaking limbs, making loud thumps as it walked, it was not stealth at all. Then just like that, it stopped, but we could not see anything.

Obviously we didn’t stick around either. This is an annual hunting town for our family, but we never went that deep into the forest since that trip.

Two Men Find Bigfoot Tracks In The Snow At Index Washington


Date:  December 1997
Time:  Approx: 9:00 p.m.

I really don’t remember the circumstances, but a friend and I hooked up with a few local members of the BFRO.

We were interested in what research they were doing in the area, so we met up in Sultan, WA.

They said they were checking out a forest service road that apparently had a lot of recent activity. So we followed them up Forest Service Road #62. We got to the site and we started a small campfire.

We listened to the members discussing what they had learned of the location, and their own experience from visiting it a few days earlier. After a couple of hours we left.
A few days later my friend and I decided to go back up there ourselves. It was night with a little snow coming down. I only had a two-wheel drive truck, so we couldn’t get to the exact location where we were with the BFRO guys.

We were about a quarter of the way up a hill and could go no further. So we left the engine running, lights on so we could see, grabbed the video recorder and started walking up the road thinking that the top of that hill was our previous location.

We were approximately 100 yards from the vehicle and I noticed footprints in the snow! The footprints were coming down the side of road towards us and the turned and went straight up what I think was a logging skid opening.

It was probably a 45 degree embankment. I obviously took video of all of it. I got close up footage of them, and it was very clear that it had toes, heel and large. It was snowing so the tracks couldn’t have been very old.

On the other side of the road under the protection of a fir tree was more tracks, but were partially melted, which we assumed were a couple of days older, but we could not see any leading to those.

As we were looking and filming, we looked back at the truck with its lights glaring back at us, and we both got an eerie, unsettling feeling. I think we were so amazed and excited to find the prints, we didn’t realize that it was a scary situation at first. So we quickly got back in the vehicle and left.

Several months later hoping the snow had melted enough to re-visit the location, we went back. However, unfortunately the road was washed out at almost the beginning of the service road.

Anyways, there are my two encounters. I have no idea what I witnessed either time, but it is definitely something I will never forget. I moved to South Carolina three years ago and have been bigfoot free ever since.

Bigfoot - Horrible Loud Sound And Banging Against The Outside Wall Of The Cabin Outside Of Emida Idaho


Date:  Around 1973
Time:  Approx: 11:00 p.m.

We lived above Emida, Idaho and late one night we were all inside the cabin watching TV.

It was about 11:00 p.m. when there was a horrible loud sound and hard bang against the north side of the cabin.

It knocked things off the shelves and scared the kids and me to death.

We were about 4 miles above Emida and this was about '73 and the only reason we could come up with was Bigfoot, but thought people would think we were crazy, so we didn't say what we thought the cause was.

Just that the cabin shook and things flew off the shelves on a quiet starlit November night.

Possible Sasquatch Signs Seen In The Forests At Juskatla British Columbia


Hello, good to hear from you! I must tell you, right up front, I have never actually seen a Sasquatch. However, I grew up in the logging camp at Juskatla, BC, and I was night watchman there from the time, I was 16, until 2010. I am 32 now.

My duties had me traveling all over the tree farm license, often until 3:00 a.m. I had to keep tabs on the night shift crews, as well as watching for crooks, forest fires, etc.

I also filled in for the watchman at our Dinan Bay camp a few times.

In my spare time I explored this island quite extensively, particularly second growth forests, as I am interested in the WW1 spruce logging here. Spending so much time outdoors, I have witnessed my share of strange things.

A few years back, while exploring an area of second growth forest, WW1 vintage logging, I found something very odd. In a bit of a hollow, between an upturned stump and an old log, I found a deer skeleton.

Now, this was not an ordinary skeleton. All of the bones were neatly arranged, the long bones in one pile, vertebrae and ribs in another, etc. The ribs were all separated. I could not explain this, as a bear would not do something like this.

I still can not explain it. About a year later I was talking to an old fellow that found a strange thing near the Honna River, as well. Between two windfalls there were several deer skeletons. He thought that maybe a bear was using the logs as a trap. Maybe, but it could have been something else.

On one occasion I had to spend the night at an isolated area on a logging road, in order to maintain radio contact with three different machine operators. This area had so many dead spots I could not reach everyone from camp.

It was January, if I recall correctly, and the road was solid ice, with fresh rain on it. So bad in fact that you could not walk or drive safely on it, and two of our crew nearly crashed on the way home. I was laying sideways on the seat, back to the drivers side window, listening to music.

The weather had cleared up, and the moon was very bright. Suddenly, the hair on my neck stood up, and a tall shadow went slowly by the truck. I carefully reached my foot to the clutch, and started the engine.

The shadow vanished, and I did not see anything that could have made it. No hoofed animal could have stood on that ice, and I could see no tracks. Whatever it was, it scared the hell out of me! Later that week, Dad saw weird footprints about two miles from where I was parked.

He operated the grader, and was the first person into the area after some fresh snow.

He told me they did not look human, and were not from a bear. "sort of like a human-bear" I think were his words. I had not told him about what happened to me until he mentioned the tracks.

In the same area, kilometer 5 on Canyon Mainline, at least three nights in a row both myself and one of the operators saw a strange light. It was a constant, un-flickering light, orange in colour. After seeing it two nights in a row, I lined my truck up with some stumps, and took a rudimentary sighting on the light, so I could return in daylight and determine where it was in relation to the old logging roads.

It turned out to be a side hill in the middle of nowhere, quite a distance from the nearest road. Not really Sasquatch related, but strange and mysterious nonetheless. My Dad and I saw a similar light near Juskatla when I was a kid, and we could never figure out what it was.

In 2007 I was filling in for the Dinan Bay watchman on weekends, during a forest industry strike. The regular watchman was a close friend, and a very stable fellow. Non drinker, did not use drugs, much like myself.

He had told me a few weeks earlier of hearing strange noises at night, to the point that he was scared to leave the bunkhouse after dark. I figured he was hearing raccoons.

Anyway, the first night he stayed there with me to show me the ropes, and while we were watching TV at about 10:00 p.m., we were startled by loud banging under the bunkhouse.

Actually, it seemed to be against the floor, right under our feet. It actually shook the whole table, and seemed to be from a creature with great strength. My friend wanted to go out and see what it was, while I was with him.

Evidently this had been happening very frequently, and was driving him nuts. Frankly, I was not too keen on going outside, myself! We armed ourselves, I with a .303 Lee Enfield and he with a 12 gauge shotgun.

We went outside as quickly as possible, but found nothing. No tracks, as the ground was all rock. Later that night, I awoke to strange noises outside the bunkhouse. It sounded to me almost like the noises two ravens make when the talk to each other, only really loud.

There were two distinct voices. I stayed in bed listening to this, not sure what to make of it. It was actually quite terrifying, and made all the hair on my neck stand on end.

After a few minutes, the voices stopped, and there was a really loud, thwack, thwack, thwack,  much like the noise made when you whack a carpet.

I jumped out of bed and tried to get a look at whatever it was, but the window was too filthy to see anything. I never slept a wink the rest of that night. My friend never heard a thing, he slept on the other side of the bunkhouse where the genset drowned out all noise.

In the same area, we went exploring to the mouth of Prospect Creek, where we were told there was an old cabin. We found no cabin, but what I did notice were branches broken all over the place, at a height that I could not quite reach, and I am 6'2".

I have not seen that anywhere else on the island. Walking along the beach, we came upon a small clearing, a grassy area, that seemed to be used as a toilet by some creature. What creature, we do not know.

The turds were green, and roughly the size of large lemons. There was a huge amount of poop, in varying states from nearly dissolved, to almost steaming fresh. It was not like any bear droppings I have ever seen, and the piles were huge!

It was similar to elk droppings, but I am confident it was not from an elk. Any ideas?

Hope you find my experiences interesting.

Sasquatch Maybe In The Area 80 Miles Northwest Of Prince Albert Saskatchewan


Date:  August 16, 2012
Time:  12:30 p.m.

Hi Brian, I have been listening to you on Rense for many years and am always interested in the reports here in Canada.

I don’t want you to give out my name, but would like to tell you about something that is ongoing.
We have a place 80 miles North West of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. There are trails that I groom for a small resort.

On Thursday August 16, 2012 I was mowing one of the trails that is about 3 kilometers in the bush away from the resort, there are not many people around here and a great deal of government land for many kilometers.

On the one section of trail I kept hearing noises above the sound of the lawn mower, at the same time got the feeling that I was being watched.

I stopped several times to look around thinking that there might be a deer, moose or more importantly a bear around, but I never saw anything and kept mowing.

I came across several young trees about an inch to a inch and a half thick that had been broken between 6 and 7 foot level. Initially I thought it was a moose or elk passing by, but later changed my mind.

I had been mowing for several hours, it was 12:30 p.m. so I parked the mower on the trail and walked back to my cabin for lunch, about 50 minutes later I came back.

Where I had parked my mower there was a young tree freshly snapped at the 7 foot height.

I know this was not broken before because I was working on that trail and the way the tree was broken, it came across the trail making it necessary to duck in order to pass.

This was within 3 feet of my mower at that point. I started looking carefully for more broken trees, I saw several, some fresh and some a day or more old, it was only in that area though, along that section of trail.

At that point I still was not sure what was doing this, I know no human was on the path during that time, and after experimenting with some other trees came to the conclusion that it wasn’t an Elk or Moose. I could take a similar size tree and bend it to the ground and the tree would spring back up with no harm done.

I checked the trees for antler scrapes or claw marks, but found none. At this point I started thinking the only way to break a tree in this fashion would require something resembling a hand in order to brace the tree and another hand to pull it down and snap it.

That evening I put up a trail cam, but only caught a small doe and her fawn. I intend to do more, but was leaving the next day and won’t be back for a couple of weeks.

After going on the internet and seeing what signs there were where Sasquatch were suspected, I recall a couple more things that at the time I ignored. With the broken trees and sounds, I also smelt an odor that at the time I put off to a skunk, it was a little different smell but close enough.

I even remarked that the smell had moved from where I had smelt it in the morning when I took my son on the trails in the evening. Also I had come across an area where several branches had been piled against a tree in a crude shelter.

I had put it off to kids playing and that still could be the case. In the past my dog would at times freeze and not continue any further, the thought that maybe a Lynx, Wolf or Coyote was nearby and she was scared and we usually headed back to the cabin.

We hear Coyotes and Wolves most nights, sometimes very close. On the trail that evening she froze and didn’t want to continue, with a little coaxing she continued, but stayed by my side and didn’t go on ahead like she normally does.

When I get back I will be putting the trail cam back up and taking some pictures.
