Location: SE Oklahoma (Near Clayton, Ok)
Case Type: Eye Witnesses Observed Sasquatch (s)
Time Frame: 2014 (Late Spring)
Investigator: Troy Hudson, Sasquatch Genome Project
This report was submitted to the investigator by eye witness through "friend of a friend" connections. This eye witness wishes to remain unknown to the public due to his profession. He has heard stories of people's negative outcomes from "telling their stories of seeing a Bigfoot". This investigator has nicknamed this witness "Karl" for the purpose of the public report. Karl and his wife traveled 3 hours to the Clayton, Ok area to camp and take a weekend off from the busy city life. Karl has experience as a small/big game hunter and has traveled to Africa to hunt big game numerous times. Karl appears to this investigator as not one that frightens easily by being in the woods at night time. Karl's wife is also very comfortable being in the wilderness, she has taken part on several hunting trips herself to Montana and Alaska. They are both considered to be veteran woodsman.
This particular weekend was very pleasant, day temperatures in the high 80s and night time down into the upper 70s, full moon, and clear. They camped at a location that has public access and according to their recollection that there were no other campers of human presence the whole weekend any where near their campsite.
It was the second night that took them from being non-believers of Bigfoot to full-blown 100% no doubt that they are real. The second day started out like the first, they were up at the crack of dawn, cooked breakfast, went for a hike, and fished the rest of the day until it was little warm and the fish stopped biting. They didn't not hear or see anything out of the ordinary the first day and the second day, except until they had went to bed in their tent, they had stored most of their food they had in storage containers and their vehicle. But the fish they had caught, they cleaned down by the water's edge and wrapped them and put them in their cooler, which was sitting on the tailgate of their truck. The wife said it was about 3:00 AM when she was woken by a uneasy feeling and could hear something rummaging through the items on the picnic table just 10-12 feet from their tent. She first thought it was raccoons or some other critter. Then she heard a grunt and a faint voice like sound, as if something was trying to remain quiet but speak softly. What she described made the hair on back of her neck stand up and she softly pushed on Karl to wake him up. He did, she covered his mouth so he wouldn't speak so whatever was outside their tent would hear him. The wife was afraid it was something other than a critter and it was speaking in a voice she couldn't understand, she also described the grunt as "unnerving" in nature. Karl's side of the story starts that, he was awakened with a hand over his mouth and the look of terror on his wife's face, he said it took him a few seconds to focus on what she was trying to relay non-verbally. He then could hears something open the cooler lid and the sounds of someone trying to sift through the cooler as it was looking for something. He immediately thought it was a trespasser and he was going to intervene in their attempt to steal food from their cooler.
Karl moved quickly to push his wife's hand away from his mouth and unzip the tent and scare the would be trespassers. When he moved the sounds outside stopped immediately, as he was unzipping the tent fly (door) he could hear grunting and some other type of language he didn't recognize, as he threw open the tent flap he turned his flashlight towards the area where the cooler was sitting on the tailgate, the cooler lid was up and he then spun his flashlight towards the sounds of movement towards the picnic table, what he saw next caused him to gasp and let out a "what the %^&". His wife pushed him aside to see out the tent. Karl's description is as follows:
One was very large, black all over, walked like a human, the head was very large, and was being followed by something that looked just like it but maybe 3 feet smaller. The large one was in his mind estimated to be at the least 8-9 feet tall, the small one no less that 5-6 feet tall. He observed them from the back, they walked swiftly in the dark, tree line and never heard a sound after that.
Karl's wife described what she saw was extremely big, she states the big one had to be no less than 9 feet tall, he brother is 7 feet tall and she said this thing was at least 2 feet taller than her brother. She couldn't see the other one due to her husband taken up most of the space in the door way of the tent, but she did say there was two of them.
Karl said to his wife "I will be &^^( do you know what we just saw, that was Bigfoot". Karl's wife said she wanted to leave that she couldn't stay here knowing they were just in their camp. When Karl started to pack the truck, he notice that package of fish was only thing missing from the cooler. They stopped to get gas in a small town hour from this location and the store clerk notice that Karl was moving fast and seemed to be agitated. Karl remembers the clerk asking if everything was "Ok?" Karl said he told the clerk that they had a run in with something big in in their camp and it stole their daily catch. The clerk responded with from what he remembers as "oh don't worry it was just Bigfoot they do that every now and then". That sealed the deal for Karl, when he arrived home, for the next few months he visited every website and TV show that was about Bigfoot. He and his wife are believers, but one thing stands out in both their minds, what they saw demanded respect and was not to be messed with. Karl described the Big one as something that took whatever it pleased, but didn't want a confrontation, and left without being told to do so. Karl's wife said she will never forget the language she heard and that grunt is like a nightmare, she never heard anything like it.
Investigator's Notes: Both were interviewed over the phone and their story likeness has been heard over and over again by campers alike. In my opinion and through my lengthy law enforcement experience as having prior criminal investigative experience there were no deception noted on both of the witnesses. Their descriptions and voice demeanor were true and full of sincerity. This location is near a state park and has decades of reports of Bigfoot activity in and around campsites. This investigator played previous recordings of possible Bigfoot sounds, language and grunts. She was overwhelmed by the sounds that it caused her to relive (also known in medical terms as PTSD) that night. She said she still has trouble sleeping sometimes when she hears a sound in the house that is similar, she was worried that being a year ago that this still troubles her. This investigator talked at length with her explaining she is not alone in all of this, this investigator has investigated reports of similar and even myself have memories of my own experiences that keep coming back that I have had that parallel their night at the campsite. She was assured that she is not going crazy, and mere the fact that very few people ever get to have that type of experience, she was also told very few people get to see a Bigfoot and for the fact two at the same time. They have been invited to attend an field expedition to learn more about the topic and maybe a chance to ease their minds that there are other people that have shared their experiences. Kinda like a AA for Bigfoot witnesses.
Note: Witnesses of Sasquatch are sometimes laughed at, made fun of, mocked and ridiculed for their stories of what they have seen and heard. It is known that 2 out of 3 witnesses will never tell anyone on what they saw and heard, for the fear of the above. Sometimes the witnesses is so overcome with emotion of the experience that it often manifest into what the medical field calls PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome). Half the world claims Bigfoot is no more than a figment of our imagination, miss-identification, our eyes playing tricks on our minds, etc. However when you see one or have had an experience such as Karl and his wife, it will stop you in your tracks and play over and over in your mind like a traumatic event, because remember your told Bigfoot does not exist, BUT WAIT, you just saw one with your own eyes, and you have a witness with you to back up what you just saw!
Insert: 2014 Honobia Bigfoot Conference (Storytelling) come to Honobia in October (2nd and 3rd 2015) to hear from witnesses on what they have seen and heard.
