TFS your new research format Maddison, too bad about the howls-must have been a bummer.

That is too funny about your wimpy woops.

Hey violet, it was surprisingly difficult to get a deep breath to whoop while being very nervous. I had to laugh at myself. I also found my mouth was too dry to whistle well either. It was kinda funny.

First - I don't know about getting together with other folks yet. I don't know you all - maybe we could do a get together first. Not meeting folks off the internet without major procautions in place. Let me think on it, OK? A good firm maybe? I want to get some good solid data first before I introduce others to the sites..

Second - I'd suggest reading up on the London Tracks and see who was there. I've been in contact with some of those folks, and some of them have passed on other names to me. [/media] http://www.cryptomun...oo-news/or-122/ and http://www.bigfootlu...ch-prints.html.

When I first began searching rather frantically for a researcher here in Oregon, I did a simple google search - search "bigfoot researchers in Oregon" and you'll get some great sites and people.

There is a group here in Eugene, the Willamette Valley Bigfoot Society, but it doesn't seem to be very active.

As to location.... well, it's like Chris Minnier said once "you can't swing a dead cat around here without hitting one". I loved that quote. So, I'd say... follow any river or large creek system that's near farms and forest. Which describes half of Lane County and all up and down the Cascades! When I first started looking, after reading a great book on the subject, I got out a notebook and went to each website that had witness reports for Lane County. I broke each report out by date/time/location/website and what happened - sighting, audio, physical evidence etc. Then I mapped them out on a handmade map... all the reports I could find for the last ten years - color coded etc for various catagories. It was very revealing. What I discovered is that sightings tend to follow the rivers...so just follow a river....out into the country....and viola! OK, so probably not quite that easy, but it's a place to start.

There are quite a few BF researchers in Oregon, that's for sure. I've met and/or gone in the field with several of them. I tend to stick with the old school researchers. There are too many new ones popping up.

I've never heard of the Willamette Valley Bigfoot Society. Have you met anyone from there?

There's a guy putting a book together of all the BF researchers in the country or world. I don't know if he ever finished or not. Maybe someone else here knows about this.

Looking forward to reading your future posts and hopefully videos, pics, and audio as well.

Email contact only with the Willamette Valley folks. They didn't have anything going on until "after the holidays", so we'll see.

MISCELLANEOUS

Date: January 7, 2013 Monday

Time: Early afternoon to mid-afternoon

Weather: Cool high 40's, fog & drizzle rolled in later in the afternoon

Location: Up in the mountains out from Springfield

What happened: Took my friend M. and her kids and my kid out for a nature walk because it's been dry for a few days and today was pretty nice as winter days go. Wanted to drive the road M and I did the other night in the daytime and see what it looked like in light. Then went up another forest service road until we found a loading spot for folks with motorbikes and ATV's. We walked up another mile and enjoyed the outdoors for a while. Decided to see how far the road went until it went to dirt.

Drove several more miles and I had to go to the bathroom, so I got out on a side road off the "main" road and went behind a tree stump to do my business. While there, I noticed that I was inches from the beginning of an eaten animal, deer or elk by the looks of what was left of it. All the bones were broken and eaten and only most of the head and some of the torso remained. The pieces of fur started a foot from my feet and were scattered around, and some were in the bushes nearby. I tried to get as close as I could for a picture but it was gross. I was in my good dress shoes, too, because I'd forgotten to put my boots in the van. And it was a new kill. I actually didn't see much blood, but the flesh didn't stink yet at all. As I walked back to the car, I found a puddle of what was left of something else, a grey mass about the size of a basketball backboard on the ground six feet or so from the elk/deer. And, as I stepped out, I was stepping onto bones... backbones and vertibrae. I probably didn't make something happy peeing in it's dinner bowl. Ooops. Called M out to look at it and we agreed that we did not want to stick around and see what had killed and eaten there.

Follow-up: We will try to get my camera card uploaded to M's laptop so I can post pix here. Also took some stunning scenery pix, hope to post them, too. Were a whole 5 miles from a small town. Felt like another world.

On Event #7 ADDITION

Date: January 4, 2013

Time: 8:15pm

Location: Down on a road parallel to the River near the original site, on our way back into town

Weather: Very, very foggy

What happened: I didn't include this in Event #7 because it wasn't part of that event and happened at a different place, but the more I consider it, the more I think I should add it, so here goes. M and I pulled off the road on our way back into town as near to the original site as possible without actually being there or parking in our usual place to walk in. It was extremely foggy. We considered getting out and seeing if we could rustle up some activity near the original site, but decided against it because of the fog. We still had half hour to kill before having to pick up our kids from the sitters, so we were just hang out talking. As we were talking, we were watching across the river. The road here is on the top of a 50-foot high hill overlooking the river and the hills go up the same distance on the other side of the river. We began to notice some type of tiny lights - we thought over the river. We watched them kinda wink in and out and fade in and out, both, while we were idly talking. M began watching them closer and paying attention and asked me to watch closer, too. She then made a joke about UFO's that I didn't find funny (UFO's scare me) and we watched closer for a minute or two. It was very difficult to tell where they were coming from or what it was. After a few minutes, we were both rather freaked out by them and left.

Follow-up: On our way back yesterday, we stopped at the same place to see if we could see what were were looking at the other night. After putting the van in the same location, we decided that there was no way we were seeing lights from across the river, the forest was too dense to see clearly across the river like the lights seemed to be coming from. The only other solution was to consider that the lights were on OUR side of the river, but that meant that they had to be up in the trees. This gave me nightmares last night and I wasn't sure why until this morning. My mind kept trying to figure them out when I was sleeping... I hate that, feels like you've never slept.

Anyway, what was troubling about it was two fold - first, they were NOT across the river and were on our side. Two, they were high up. I'd guess either possum or raccoon, but what is bothering me is that if the lights were eyes - and they were round and white - they were NOT close together. And there were not two of them, there were four, that was also throwing me off. And they moved. That's what's bothering me. They didn't appear to match possum or raccoon eyes - four of them, far apart and moving. It doesn't seem like they'd match owl eyes, but of that I'm not certain. Aren't owl eyes more golden? Owl eyes would be further apart, right? Do they ever sit more than one on a branch? I don't know what they were for sure.

I can speculate that they were two bigfoot in a tree, but I am not sure I want to say that,though it is within a half mile from my original site and within spitting distance of an opening in a hillside/hedge/blackberry bramble that's been bothering me... So, another mystery... on a dark, spooky, extremely foggy "pea soup" night. Just something that is bothering me that I wanted to put out there to you all. If this is what it is, that's the first time I have seen them (or parts of them). Maybe this is ramping up? Who knows. Need more coffee :)

Nice thread Madison. My good friend was just in Eugene seeing his sister for the holidays. They were at a restaurant and a couple of them had on the sasquatch hunters shirts(our research group). I'm not sure which restaurant, but possibly the one his sister owns. A guy came up to them and said he had had a sighting close by and a lady who overheard the conversation came over and told them about her sighting in the area.

It seems there are a lot of sightings in that area. Good luck!

JRid - which restaurant? I'd like to patronize any place that attracts bigfooters!

Gotafeeling, I just asked him and his sister owns a restaurant called Greek Paradise. The place he talked to the people who had encounters was at Three Rivers Casino in Florence. He said the casino serves something called the bigfoot chicken fried steak and it's apparently huge.

Greek Paradise, huh? I'll look it up. I know there's a restaurant somewhere out on the 126 that used to have a bigfoot night, maybe we'll have to start a new tradition here?! Hmmm...

Speaking of eating, I hope to have those pictures up on Friday (of the mostly eaten deer/elk carcass and the bones and mushy skin sack), and some gorgeous Oregon scenery shots.

Ike's on 126. Has a "bigfoot" in the restaurant. You've never been?! It's a must! There are foot casts too. And various bigfooty things!

I week try to speak to my brother about where exactly, but he was outside of Powers a few weeks ago when he noticed the woods went completely silent, and he noticed some very large scat, and then heard a snort. He is an experienced woodsman, knows his bears etc...

Psy- the growl I heard somewhat was like a staccato Badger snort, but the sound was more like a brief BF growl on Stan Courtney's page, maybe your cous. could listen to Stan's sounds for comparison.

Maddison, your experience makes me thing of a Disney movie with eyes in the darkness, maybe Winnie the Pooh, eerie.

I hate those experiences that are possibly cool, possibly nothing,lol!

Powers Oregon...

Anyone outside or near Powers at night is nuts.....Not because of the animals.

Can you post where at?...Details?....I am not far from Powers.....

Something raised the hairs on the nape of his neck that day. He's never been one to say "that's a sasquatch", but he said the scat was in a pile like a human might leave but for times the size. That, along with loud deep snort, made him consider.
