Possible vocalizations heard near Huntington Reservoir
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
DATE: mid month
COUNTY: Sanpete County
LOCATION DETAILS: We were camped in the Lake Fork Campground just below Huntington Reservoir. The dam was in sight of our campground and the ridge that we felt the sounds were coming from were due East of our location and as far as I know there aren't any roads accessing that area.
NEAREST TOWN: Fairview
NEAREST ROAD: not sure
OBSERVED: I was family camping with my wife, daughter, and father below Huntington Reservoir. The last two nights of this trip while sitting around the fire late at night we started hearing a moaning sound that sounded like it was coming from the opposite ridge roughly 2-4 miles away. We heard these sounds repeatedly for over an hour on both nights and they seemed to be coming from at least two different directions. My father and I are both avid bigfoot enthusiasts and have been to all of the locations of recent sightings in Utah posted on your site. But, this trip we weren't even thinking about it or talking about when my father said do you hear that. After listening for a second I heard a long moaning howl that(as far as we can tell) sounds amazingly similar to the Ohio howl.
ALSO NOTICED: Just that we heard it to nights in a row in the same location. It was during the week with nobody really around. Also there seemed to be some interaction with at least two individuals at different locations.
OTHER WITNESSES: Yes, one. My dad. We were just sitting by the fire talking.
OTHER STORIES: Yes, but its from your website. so I wont give the details but I believe the place is called James Canyon although I'm pretty familiar with the area and I don't know where exactly it is.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Somewhere around midnight to two O'clock in the morning
ENVIRONMENT: Pine and Aspen forests with a lot of lakes and streams all around for miles and miles
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TF Zamiski:
I spoke with this witness on the phone and can add the following details:
-The vocalizations heard were probably more than 2 miles away and from two directions perhaps about a mile apart. The people had to be quiet to hear them. If they were sleeping at the time they would have missed them.
-The sound was steady and faded toward the end, each lasting around 5 to 10 seconds with about 30 to 60 seconds between and were heard for over an hour for two nights.
- The vocalizations were described as very similar to the Ohio recording.
- The area where they camped is 8000' to 9000' in elevation.
