Culvert and Stream, Undisclosed Location
In November of 2012 in a mudflat near a reservoir, there were discovered nearly 50 tracks that the individuals felt strongly were attributed to Bigfoot. The group decided to investigate in another area they felt that would show promising results and they found this culvert. it measures approximately 50 feet wide and 5 feet tall and travels under a main road allows a stream feeding the reservoir to pass through.
In the culvert were discovered at least seven impressions of hand prints showing non-human hand structure and were located very low to the water line. The prints were of several varieties, some were clear imprints, some were drag marks along the plastic culvert, some were partial prints. None of them were of the size and anatomy of a normal humans hand print.
The following week I returned with a few friends to explore a different area that we felt would be promising. After walking across the lake bed for a couple of miles we discovered a few tracks that led off into another area where we found dozens, then hundreds, then literally over a thousand prints. We identified at least three different sizes of tracks ranging from 11, 8 and 6 inches long. All exhibiting clear evidence of individual toes and in all kinds of various configurations showing natural foot movement. At no point did we see any evidence of any other type of boot or shoe prints. All of the prints were of bare feet with five toes.
I had brought along a carpenters T-square in the hopes of being able to measure anything we might have found. Little did I know that we would run out of energy to catalog and measure all of the different types of prints.
We saw clear evidence of them chasing deer tracks, doubling back, running in a circle, approaching deep mud and making the decision to change direction. At no point did we see a stumble, a trip, a skip or even a fall where the individual would have needed to use their hands to get out of the mud.
At one point we found several sets of tracks that paralleled each other for about 100 yards or so, one of the tracks measuring 11 inches and the other tracks were 8 inches. They changed direction and kept in exact measure from each other the entire time. It appeared as if they may have been holding hands as they walked across the mud.
There were also several areas that showed long straight deep drag marks where the single groove was about1-2 inches wide and about 3 inches deep. These grooves ran for 30-40 yards and were paralleled by sets of footprint tracks. I could not decide what these groove marks may have been caused by.
I had my tall rubber boots on and decided to follow a stream that fed into the reservoir when I saw that one set of tracks started up the stream. For the next 1/2 mile I followed tracks in the stream bed, in the mud of the stream and next to the stream bed. I could see where the creature would walk in the water, exit and walk on the land/mud, re-enter the stream bed and continue on up stream until the mud turned into deep grasses and no tracks were able to be seen.
The stream that I tracked along eventually turned out to be the stream that passed through the culvert where the handprints were found the week earlier.
Up until that day I had not seen any tracks or any physical evidence of a Bigfoot creature. After following tracks for miles and miles I can no longer ignore the reality of these animals.
There is a sighting of an animal walking across these same mudflats by a woman driving in her vehicle. I do not have a full account of that story, but will relate it as well as a photograph from her sighting vantage point at a future date.
There are continuing reports of animals in the area currently as of this writing (2/5/2013). I will not disclose the area in an attempt to keep hoaxers and others who would bother these animals out of the area.
