Describe sighting in detail:
I was on a group father and son fishing trip at Stampede Lake. All the adults were asleep in one tent and all the sons were split up into two more.
I was laying awake - couldn't sleep - listening to everyone else snore.
Suddenly the tent flap was opened and about a 5 foot tall "person" was standing there looking in.
I grabbed my flashlight and shined it into its' face. It was a hairy being, with not much on the black face.
We both screamed and woke everybody up. It dropped the tent flap and ran.
We heard sounds down by the lake that I still have never heard in 35+ more years as an outdoorsman. I cannot call the sound "horse-like" per se, but that would be the closest thing I could describe it to.
Everyone woke up startled and got mad at me thinking I was making it up. I was told I was nuts, crazy, lying and just about everything else under the sun. Even my own father ridiculed me.
I remember vividly the look of surprise on its' face. When it screamed with me, I remember seeing its' eyes go wide and the whites showing, as well as the flashlight beam reflecting off of a row of perfectly straight teeth in the front. I really cannot say I saw canine teeth. Just straight, flat, whitish teeth and gums.
The next morning we walked down to Stampede Lake to fish and there were two sets of larger tracks that the tracks of the small one seemed to join up with.
I was so shamed into being quiet about this for so long, I told so very few people since.
I am damn sure I saw a juvenile bigfoot open my tent, scream and run off towards his parents' calls for him.
