Many years ago, a bunch of us were out running around in the country at night. There was a stretch of road with no homes for about 2 miles. A guy in the backseat said he saw something moving behind us. We got out into about 4 inches of fresh snow. We found some huge footprints from bare feet in the snow. Timber was very thick and ran up to the edge of the road. So no way to see anything. Another guy, who was always telling wild stories, said later on that he saw a bigfoot in that area. It was always a strange area. there was 13 curves in that 2 miles of road. There were times that you could drive through there in the daytime and not even see a bird, no animals of any kind. Other times, you would see the usual animals. We saw some orange lights in the sky in the same area once at night. Still wish I knew what it was.

Whatever it was, is still there - or its offspring. Go back and have a look and take a couple of trailcam with you. Remember to point one trailcam at the other so if one is tampered with, you will get a picture of the creature which is doing the tampering - assuming they leave you the camera behind. This is what people forget to do. Because trailcams are not cheap, they want to cover as much trail as they can, but that way, they never get a picture of the creature which destroys or moves the trailcam.

There are homes in that area now. So I imagine whatever it was moved on.

Familiar story, hiked across missouri river on an old rail bridge with 2 friends in a rural location. Light patches of snow on ground. Saw 2 prints twice as wide as my foot but not much longer, big toe more like a thumb. Who am I to say

Footprints in snow can be very deceiving...( Yes i know, this doesnt sound like a post from me!), I listened to a guy talk about how footprints in snow can become very large and distorted after just a little bit of melting, the areas around the edges melt first, making it look like the footprint is much larger.


I realize this doesnt always explain footprints though, sometimes people do find VERY large prints and they are the real deal.


I did see some canine type prints at the southern OH property I visited awhile back (guy claiming Dogmen were all over the area), but no way to determine what made them and the general area was a mess.

Absolutely. Its the only explanation I could come up with, except they were exact same and sharp

It was still snowing, at night and very cold. I know there had been no melting. And they were bare feet and in the middle of nowhere. Our tire tracks were the only ones on the road.

Sounds like you saw the real deal then.


Thats one aspect skeptics can never explain...why would a 'hoaxer' go to the middle of nowhere to place fake tracks, that chances are, no one will even see?! lol
