Hunter finds possible tree breaks and track near Stensgar Mountain
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Stevens County
LOCATION DETAILS: At about 2900 Addy-cedonia rd, take a right onto Locke Rd, which takes you into the mountain. It was around four miles in the track was spotted, and near 7 where the territory markers were.
NEAREST TOWN: Addy
NEAREST ROAD: Addy-Cedonia Rd
OBSERVED: While bear hunting I found many broken saplings, all pointing in the same direction, and all at the same height. I thought it strange due to the fact that smaller trees all around them were not broken. The next day it was pouring rain and I came across a bare footprint in the road. I wear size 13 boots, and I could have fit my entire boot inside of it. The track had to have been made within 20 minutes of me being there, as the rain was pouring so hard it would have washed the track away if it was any longer than that.
ALSO NOTICED: Something came through my camp and set off our motion lights the night before, but never made a noise, besides the faintest stepping sound, and didn't touch any of my food. No tracks from any animal were there in the morning. Whatever was there had the hair on the back of my neck standing up.
OTHER WITNESSES: Only myself.
OTHER STORIES: I overheard a woman and a medicine man talking about a wounded bigfoot she had in her shed in Hunters Wa. She had hired the medicine man to get the bigfoot medical help. I heard the medicine man tell the woman to be quiet about it or "they" will come take it away. Hunters is on the other side of the mountain range my incident took place. Within 20 miles.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 9:30 am pouring rain
ENVIRONMENT: Pine forests in clear cuts, and on ridge lines with rock bluffs.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Llewellyn:
I talked to the witness by phone.
The witness described the broken fir saplings as one to three inches in diameter. All were broken, not twisted, at just under six feet high. There were about ten saplings over thirty yards on each side of the trail. All were parallel to the trail and pointing in the same direction.
The witness did not look at the time, but that night motion lights he had outside his tent came on. He saw a quick shadow cross his tent wall but could not discern any shape to it. He heard faint footfalls on the pine needle covered ground.
The next morning in the pouring rain, he found a fresh track in the mud. It appeared to have crossed the road and one step landed in the middle of the road. The witness needed two steps to cross. The track appeared as a right foot with five defined toes separated in the mud. It was fifteen to sixteen inches long, seven to eight inches wide, one and one half to two inches deep in the mud. The witness has hunted bear all his life and did not see any claw marks in this track.
The witness is an avid hunter and I find him very credible.
