Bigfoot Encounters

People from all over the world have claimed to see bigfoot. Bigfoot is one of the best known mysteries in the area of cryptids. However, some people still struggle with giving their experiences a louder voice. Enjoy these personal stories of encounters with the creature.

His face was almost human. Except for the eyebrows.

Machelle's Encounter

I asked one individual to tell me her story. She did not hesitate with information about her experience. "There were seven of us together", she wrote. They were "[o]ut of high school for lunch." She went on to state that they "always got our food to go and drove to the same spot on down a black top road. So it's noon on a spring day." She commented on the kinds of noise that were present. "Then not even the frogs were groaning. No bug racket. No birds. Just the noise of some good 80's rock n roll playing over the radio." She then explained her experience with the bigfoot. "That's when he... stepped over a four strand barbwire fence to the middle of the road. He looked at the seven if us, raised his arm, then pointed across the road. [He] took another step over the four strand hard-wire fence on the other side. And he was gone." I was intrigued. I had a question for her. "What color was his coat?", I asked. "Red. Almost orange. But not thick", she answered. "You could see skin too", she added. "His face was almost human. Except for the eyebrows. He was seven and a half easily. Maybe even eight feet tall. [He was] lean. But, big shoulders and arms. His hands looked human. His feet too were human like, only very large." This was amazing and detailed. She went on. "The hair that hung from his raised arm was at least a foot long."

Patty's Experience

Patty told me first that her experience goes back to the 1970's. "What did it look like?", I asked her. She quickly replied. "[He had] brownish black hair. I didn’t see it upright; only the side and back. It was hunched behind some bushes." Considering how little video evidence exists of the creature, one may not be surprised that the animal is good at hiding. I wanted to know more. "Did the experience change how you saw the world, or were you already a believer?" She again replied. "I knew nothing of Bigfoot. I had moved to the states after living in Germany for the first 12 years of my life." That statement spiked my interest. It reminded me of another case where belief seemed to be fueled by experience.

Darrell's Encounter

I waited no time. I wanted to know more from others about the famous cryptid, so I contacted Darrell. "When did you have the experience?" He told me that this occurred in Woodbury, Tennessee. "What was the color of the creature's coat?" He told me that he was "[b]lack, with a bit of gray around the chin and chest." "How close were you?", I asked. He told me that it was around 40 feet.

Lani's Experience

I was thirsty for more. I found another witness. "What did it look like? What color was the coat?" She told me that "[i]t looked like a seven foot hairy... [m]onkey monster man [with]... brown reddish hair or reddish brown hair. The tips of the hair was clear." I always enjoy discovering what description someone gives to the coat, because it is not always the same. Perhaps bigfoot has variations in hair color, just like cats do. "How close were you?", I asked. She told me that it was around two yards. She also added that the animal was female. "How did you know it was female?" She told me this was because she was so close to the creature. "Did the animal have a human face?" She replied quickly. "Yes and no. More like human-ish, or you could also say monkey-ish; in between."

[i]t looked like a seven foot hairy... [m]onkey monster man [with]... brown reddish hair or reddish brown hair.

— Lani

Final Thoughts

There are certainly many mysteries still in this world, despite man's desire to conquer and tame the land. Perhaps more evidence will surface of the famous hairy man of the woods. Next time you are walking through the forest and you feel like someone is watching you; who knows, maybe someone is.

Interesting article but not something I believe in.

Laura Guckenberger on July 19, 2020:

Interesting.

How about doing some research on the Yowie.

Nice good old Bigfoot

John Hansen,

That's another interesting creature.

Eric Dierker,

Thank you.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on July 14, 2020:

This was a great read. I draw no conclusions but like the thought of it.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on July 14, 2020:

An interesting article. In Australia, our equivalent to Bigfoot is the Yowie. I haven't seen one but have lived in the area they are said to exist and know others who say they have seen one.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on July 14, 2020:

This is an interesting aticle. I have never seen Bigfoot and I don't think he exits. However, I guess many people disagree.
