I got a report from some of my family a few days ago. I had known about their finding for a while now but they want to make it official now with a report.
The report comes from Jim and Vickie, I will only use their first names but I'm sure anyone who lives around here will know who they are. This finding happened about 2 years ago.
Jim and Vickie like to go 4 wheeler riding, sometimes they go on night rides. One evening after a good rain the couple decided to take a ride on the ATV.
"It was the edge of dark, we like going on night rides and it had just rained. We was riding and I was driving, so wasn't going fast, I looked down and saw a footprint and stopped and backed up" Vickie said.
Vickie continued "I thought it strange someone being barefoot so recent and up in the mountains. When we saw it and started to examine it we realized it wasn't human, yet it favored human toes but bigger. But the toes were different, had odd number and we new it wasn't human. We got freaked and I took out of there. We will never forget it!"
At this point in our conversation and after realizing that the track had something unusual about it's toes; I told Vickie about the 4 toed casting I have that came from Oregon. This is when Vickie said "Jim said this print had 3 (toes)." As some of you may know there are many reports of 3 toed tracks being found, I relayed this bit of information to Vickie. Her reply was "WOW!"
She went on "We couldn't find the second print but the mud turned into grass, the print was close to the middle of the road but it was at least 4 foot from road to grass! It was also a deep print. We left because it was so fresh." She proceeded to tell me the exact location of the track but I will not disclose that information other than to say it was in Harlan county, Kentucky. Vickie also said "I know I had the weirdest feeling" in reference to finding the fresh track.
I myself know and many others, that same odd and often times scary feeling you get when you encounter a Bigfoot.
I ask how big the track was and Vickie said "Jim put his foot down beside it and it was couple inches longer than his and he has a size 14 boot. The toes were deeper than the heel of the foot, we figured it was running and it was only about 5/6 inches in the middle but it did have a slight curve to the insole."
Unfortunately, the couple did not have a camera with them that night. But after this finding of the track they rarely go our without one.
I would also like to add, that this is very close to at least one if not two reported sightings. So, the chances of this track being a Bigfoot track are real good.
I wonder sometimes about the 3 and 4 toed tracks that are found. Is it just a case of toe overlapping or did some of the toes just not make an impression? Maybe the easiest answer is that they only had 3 or 4 toes. I really don't know, I guess that is just another part of the mystery of Bigfoot.
Thanks to Vickie and Jim for sharing their finding with me.
