YEAR: 1997

SEASON: Spring


DATE: 30

STATE: Idaho

COUNTY: Bonner County

LOCATION DETAILS: Idaho panhandle -Kelso Lake area.

OBSERVED: Gene Woodruff, a North Idaho sawmill builder, said he and his son found a giant footprint of a Sasquatch the end of May while bear hunting in the northern hills of the Idaho panhandle timber country.

Their description of what happened:

"We walked into a clear-cut and my 13 year old son stopped, looked down and said "Dad, is this a Bigfoot track?" When your boy says something like that, you got to go and take a look. Sure enough, there it was, a 14 inch by 7 inch depression in the mud on a slope a few feet above a logging road. It was shaped like a giant human foot with only 3 toes. All I could do was sit there in awe, it was something! It was shocking."

The witness returned with a friend who videotaped him making the plaster mold of the footprint. The track has been cast, photographs of the cast are available and have been seen in various local Idaho publications.  The witness was convinced immediately that footprint was authentic as he had heard stories from an uncle 30 years prior who had told of footprints in the snow near Mount Rainier.
