Nightime sighting at Bowron Lake campsite
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: Bowron Lakes, 500 miles N. of Vancouver. This was Spectacle Lake opposite side of portage.
NEAREST TOWN: Highway 97
OBSERVED: Everybody was sleeping but me. I was awakened by a fairly loud knocking noise about 200 yards behind our tent. At first I thought it was some of my brothers or my cousin screwing around, but that couldnít be since they were all sleeping right next to me. So I shot out of bed and ran over to my dadís tent and started screaming in a loud whisper, "Dad, wake up it's bigfoot! Listen." There was a big meadow that had a moose trail to it. My cousin & I found it the evening before, and we saw a few moose. We heard the sasquatches on both sides of the meadow. My dad told me to go down to the direction of the other one that sounded farther away and hit a tree a few times and shortly after that he heard the reply (it was not an echo) to the one 200 yards behind our tent and that happened a few times. We quickly got the camera and got dressed and headed behind our tent. We didn't hear them hit the trees anymore because they probably heard us coming. As we were creeping back there we would hear branches cracking, and I felt that we were very close to him or her because heard what seemed to be a very heavy human that takes very big steps. We looked at each other and we knew what it was we were both almost speechless.
ALSO NOTICED: The whole trip there were no wolves howling but the night before the incident there were a lot of wolves howling that was a very rare incident.
OTHER WITNESSES: Sleeping--I made very sure of that. I hate being tricked.
ENVIRONMENT: I believe that it was campsite #49 and it also had a bridge that went over a swamp. There was lots of big fir trees and alot of ferns.
