SRA founder Jim, found a line of large snow tracks in December 2013. These tracks were going into the area where the SRA will be holding the 2014 Sasquatch Expedition.
Date of Encounter:
Time of Encounter:
In December 2013, SRA-Jim was driving and saw a line of tracks coming out of the forest, across the road, and into the forest on the other side, heading toward an area with large bogs and no civilization. The snow was several feet deep at this time. Note that there are no drag marks between the steps and that the prints are mostly in-line with each other.
Coming out of the Woods:
Crossing the field on the other side of the road:
The prints had snow blown in them, but were about 18 to 20 inches in length with 4 to 5 feet from toe to heel (giving them a stride length of over 6 feet). It would be very difficult for a human, even in snow shoes to replicate these tracks.
Unfortunately, Jim found these at a time when he did not have the gear necessary to venture off the road into the snow himself. By the time he was able to get back to them with winter gear, more snow had come and covered them. I should also note that the plow had run early that morning, obliterating the tracks on the road. Given the timing of Jim’s passing, the plow, and how quickly the tracks were filling with snow, they were likely made between 2:00 and 5:00 am of December 9th.
Jim had the following statement to add about the prints:
These tracks were 18 – 19 inches in length and shaped much like a “footprint”. They came from an area (west) of forest which is a huge unpopulated area. And headed east into a huge unpopulated spruce/cedar swamp. This area of crossing was the narrowest spot of clearing in over twenty miles. They were not there on Friday afternoon. We had a fresh snow Sunday evening. So my best guess is that it crossed sometime early Monday morning. I found them around 8:30 – 9:00 Monday morning. I was working and do not have boots or anything else along at the time. When I returned with boots and a tape measure the wind had picked up as well as we received more snow so they were still barely visible at the time. This area has had a lot of sightings by the locals.
Jim is an expert tracker an in his opinion these are not deer jumps or human tracks.
