1982 Grays Harbor Bigfoot Footprints – Pair

One of the best documented footprint finds was in Grays Harbor County, WA in 1982.  Over a period of a few months, at least nine footprints were found and cast by witnesses, the local police, and a small number of bigfooters including Dr. Grover Krantz and Cliff Crook.  

However, it has come to my attention that two very good quality replicas are being commercially and legally sold.  The two casts in question come from the original molds made by Dr. Grover Krantz and licensed to Skulls Unlimited, a commercial fossil supplier.  

The casts can be bought as a pair (click the picture or link above), or as individuals (click the picture or links below).  There are other casts from this individual occasionally available from reputable sources at various bigfoot conferences across the country.

This track line also produced two half-casts from when the creature was running.  One half-cast was taken back in 1982 and is well-documented in the literature, but the other and its recent discovery is documented on the DVD, Bigfoot Road Trip.  Both half-casts are shown below.  

A page in my bigfoot track database is long overdue for the footprint finds during this time, and one will eventually be added.  For now, you can enjoy reading the report filed by the sheriff witness himself, Dennis Heryford, in the BFRO database by clicking this link.

Bigfoot Burger Pit

Bigfoot Drive-In Burger Pit in Oakhurst, CA

This historic photograph was found on The Studebaker Drivers Club Forum and was posted by user “kurtruk” with the following information: 

Bigfoot Drive In Burger Pit was in Oakhurst, Ca on Hwy 41. Closed in the early 1980’s. Former MLB pitcher Rudy May owned the property and was going to build another restaurant on the site but never did AFAIK. Restaurant had a few yellowed newspaper clippings, and a casting of a Bigfoot “footprint.”

What I would like to know is whatever happened to that footprint cast?  Was it a copy or an original?  Where and when was it cast?  Do any of my readers have any information on this?  If you find out anything on this, or already know something about this, please contact me!

Another cast has been added to the Orang Pendek Project database on my official website.  This one shows some interesting anatomy, but was also worn down in the shipping process by inadequate packaging.

Another footprint has been added to my ever-growing online footprint database.  For more photographs and information on this cast, click here.

While rummaging through my photo files, I came across a close up of the toes on the cast.  This photo has been added to the gallery on the footprint’s page in the Footprint Database.

An orang pendek cast collected on July 14, 2013.

The Orang Pendek Project has been an amazing project to work on, but it has not been without its setbacks and frustrations.  Some of these frustrations arise from incomplete documentation or lost data.  After all, the project spans three continents and two languages.  That’s not even to mention the cultural differences that sometimes cause confusion or other complications.

This cast is a great example of these complications.  There was a track investigation on July 14, 2013, and several photographs of a footprint in the ground were recorded that day.  The cast seen above came with the bundle of data sent by my Sumatran contact that serves as a middle-man.  However, the cast cannot be from the footprint pictured in the ground; it’s the wrong foot!

We apparently have some missing data somewhere, but I will still record this footprint as from the date above.  Perhaps it is another footprint from the same line of prints?  Perhaps it’s from another date altogether?  I do not know, and am unlikely to ever know.  I do know that as the project proceeds, the documentation is getting better and better.  Hopefully this sort of error will be avoided in the future.

I present the data, fuzzy as it may be, for your enjoyment.

The Orang Pendek Project is a multinational research effort that spans three continents.  The Project increased the amount of hard data supporting the hypothesis that orang pendeks are a real species by a factor of more than ten in the year 2013, and footprint data continues to be compiled to the present day.  As time permits, I will share all of this data with my readers.  Today, I have published another cast for all to enjoy.  Click here to learn more about this cast.

London Trackway # 67

When first discovered, I gave the London Trackway something like a 90% chance of being legit.  Now that I have had a lot of time to study the casts, I have downgraded my optimism to about 50/50.  There are many compelling aspects to these casts, but some artifacts have been observed in many casts that give me doubt about their authenticity.  To get the bottom of the whole thing, I have enlisted a number of experts in various fields.  Experiments and calculations are underway, and they will be published when completed.  

In the meantime, I will continue to document each and every footprint and cast to the best of my ability for all to see.  To this end, I have now published track number 67.  Click this link to see photos and read about this cast.

This footprint was found while on a church hike
on December 8, 2012.

A witness submitted this footprint he found while hiking with his church group on December 8, 2012.  It was found on the hike out on the Bote Mountain Trail, but the footprint was not there on their hike in.  

It is the newest addition to my ever-growing bigfoot footprint database.  Click here to go to my footprint index.
