I received an email from a man who lives in Tillamook County about a footprint find near Munson Creek.  About a mile back from the gate on Munson Road, a series of footprints was found.  No measurements were taken of the step nor stride length.  The trackway was followed for about 50 yards until they were lost.  The witness returned to the location the next day, but heavy rains had all but destroyed the footprints.  No casts were taken from the site.  


The witness reported the tracks measured 16 inches long, and 7.5 inches wide.  However, the photo showing the partial print with the measuring tape next to it below indicates that the print was actually in the realm of 13 or 14 inches.  Perhaps the witness measured a track with some slippage or elongation due to the substrate.  Perhaps the shorter measurement in the photographs is due to the lack of impression in the heel.  This is unknown.  Either way, the footprint was very large.

Other sightings have occurred in this same area over the years.  In fact, just a month later and only two miles away a logging truck driver reported seeing a tan bigfoot running through timber.  The driver initially thought it was an elk but saw it was on two legs.  The sasquatch seemed to raise an arm towards the driver “almost as if it was acknowledging” the driver and turned off into the trees and disappeared.
