Man Now A Believer After Bigfoot Sighting!

In Fayette County West Virginia, in the small community of Danese, a man claims to have spotted bigfoot and even took a picture of it.  According to the report, Billy Humphrey and his wife took a walk in the forest, on or near their property, when they had a encounter with the legendary creature.

Billy was not a believer in Bigfoot until then encounter, He also had this to say:
"I was lucky enough to get a picture on a phone that I had. In the picture, you’ll notice that he’s already started to turn and walk back down. When he got completely out of sight he let out a call “Whoooooooah!”. "

Here is a news report on Mr. Humphrey's encounter

Reports that John "Trapper" Tice of  Mountain Monsters fame and Co-founder and leader of A.I.M.S has passed away due to complications  kidney failure.

Tice was born in 1947 in West Virginia He was a true American outdoorsman and Vietnam war veteran.

Tice had started havign some health issues back in 2015 when he had to undergo an emergency surgery for a blood clot in his leg. It is our understanding that this and other health issues lead to kidney problems.

Tice of course was known for his role in the popular TV show Mountain Monsters. His show was somewhat of a rival to the popular series Finding Bigfoot. There was an online feud of sorts between Tice and Finding Bigfoot show leader Matt Moneymaker.

This report was submitted to me by our researcher in training Wyatt Zombro. He has done the leg work on this case and interviewed the witness. I will input some of my commentary but the bulk of this work was done by Wyatt. I'm only putting it all together. -Tom

First lets start with the photograph. The picture was taken 3 or 4 months ago in Morgan county West Virginia by Steven. We are only using his first name to protect his identity. Steven took the picture around 12 or 1 o'clock in the day. The circle rainbow stayed in the sky for about an hour. While the picture is beautiful, there is something potentially odd about it.

A rainbow like this does happen from time to time but if you look at the top of the rainbow there appears to be a UFO. As you can see in the zoomed in picture a dark object is towards the top of the rainbow.

During the interview, the witness said he did not notice the unknown object at the time.


The shape of the unknown object seems to be in the shape of a fedora or a bell type shape. Of course this could be nothing more than something on the lens but it does appear to be an object that was actually in the sky.

While we can not say just what this object is, or even if it was an actual object, it was worth talking to the witness and attempting to gather more information about it. Thanks goes to Steven for allowing us to use the picture and for doing the interview.

Have there been other reports of UFO's around rainbows? Yes, it seems to happen very often.

Here is another bigfoot sighting report. This one is more recent and comes from Pendleton, WV.
Pendleton county is the fifth lowest populous in West Virginia. The landscape is very much like what we find here in Southeast Kentucky. It is a truly beautiful area.

Spruce Knob, located in Pendleton County, is the highest point in the state and in the Alleghenies, its elevation being 4,863 feet. Parts of the Monongahela and George Washington National Forests are also located in Pendleton. It is and idea area for bigfoot.

Here is the report

County: Pendleton

Date of Sighting: 2013

Time of Day: 10 p.m.

Nearest Town: Franklin

Length of Sighting: 15 sec

How many Witnesses:

Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:

We were traveling on route 33 and observed a large object beside the road. I knew immediately it was Bigfoot. My wife asked what was beside the road. I replied "a bear" not wanting to get into the Bigfoot discussion with her again. (she was a nonbeliever at the time).
Her reply was "that was not a bear, that was Bigfoot!" I am working on getting permission to research this area from the landowner.

Follow up questions:
TM: Where did it go and describe the height and color?
W: We're not sure where it went. When we passed it was standing beside the road. We turned around and went back and it had left. It looked to be all black and judging by the tree it was near I would say it was 7 to 7.5 foot tall.

-End Report-

Thanks for the report, Wesley. We wish you good luck in obtaining permission to research the area. If you get in there and need some help, have questions or want to share what you find, then just email or message us.

Maybe we will have an update on this sighting and area in the future.

These odd sounds were recorded in West Virginia very recently, by Wyatt Zombro. Wyatt is a young budding bigfoot researcher. Him and I have been talking for about a month or so, and he shared his recording with me. I have attempted to enhance the sound, the volume was really low, in an effort to hear the sound better.

Wyatt told me he did not know for sure what was making the sound. Over the last month Wyatt has shared several pictures with me of possible stick formations. After viewing them, I thought to myself, if I found those, I would know there were bigfoot in the area. So I do think he has bigfoot in his area. So could this recording possibly be a bigfoot? I really don't know. Have a listen and see what you think.

First, I will state the obvious, this is a very old second hand report, but I like these old reports. Some may question why I like some of these old reports and the answer is rather easy. See, back in the 40's, 50's, and 60's, people were outside a lot more. They had gardens to attend to and children helped. On days when there wasn't work to be done, kids played outside. They were not plopped down in front of a television set playing the newest great game and they didn't have their nose buried in the next greatest cellular phone. They were outside, unlike the majority of people today. By being outside, you greatly increase your chances of seeing a bigfoot, or some other rare creature. Another reason I like some of the old reports is because it helps establish a history of sightings. So with all of that said here is a report, along with some other stories, that was recently sent to me.

A country road in WV
West Virginia is a state located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States. It is bordered by Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest.West Virginia has a landscape much like my state of Kentucky. It is an ideal area for bigfoot. Meadow Bridge, WV is much like the small area I live in. It was or is a coal town that has only a handful of people living in it. These types of areas seem to provide a good place for bigfoot to live.

The following report was sent in to me from David.

Here is the report.

-Start Report-

Name: David ****

Email Address: On File

State: West Virginia

County: Fayette

Date of Sighting: 2009-2013

Time of Day:

Nearest Town: Meadow Bridge, WV

Length of Sighting: Most nights from 2009-2013

How many Witnesses: 4 family members

Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail: 


In 2009, my mother, father, brother, and I moved from NC to a cottage in the mountains of WV, where we are originally from. There were no street lights and very few neighbors as the house was very secluded. Some late evenings we could look across a gravel road near our house and see a very tall figure standing under a tree, just staring at our house. Then late one night my mother had the bathroom window open, looking out to see if she could spot any deer or other wildlife. There was a large flat rock up from our house. It had been placed on its side as a marker, it stood about 4 ½ feet tall. On the other side my mother could see a pair of bright red eyes several feet above the rock.

As she watched trying to figure out what she was seeing, a dark figure stepped out from behind the rock and started walking towards the house. My mother shut the window quickly and moved into another part of the house. In the 4 years we lived there, we heard tree knocks and packs of coyotes howling.

-End Report-

First, a big thanks to David for submitting his report, and second...I have read various other reports of bigfoot just standing and watching people and/or houses. I wonder if this behavior is just a curiosity factor or there is some other reasons.  I know around here sometimes people throw out leftovers and various animals will eat it, I wonder if this is sometimes in play when bigfoot are seen watching a house. It could be an easy way for a bigfoot to get a meal.

Booth West VA
I recently got in this report from Terry. He also does some Bigfoot research and has gather some other witness testimony to help confirm one of his two sightings. These are really interesting and I hope you enjoy them.

Here is Terry's reports.

Name: Terry *****

State: West Virginia and Texas
County: Monongalia
Date of Sighting: 10/86/84 and 2008
Time of Day: West Virginia sighting around 5:00 pm
Nearest Town: BOOTH WEST VIRGINIA and Ben Wheeler Texas.
Length of Sighting: About 3 Minutes
How many Witnesses: I have three witness that have seen the same BF at different times.

Describe sighting in detail:
 (note: BF = Bigfoot)
I was walking up a logging trail behind my my house heading up to the top of the hill. Where there is a field. I was going up to check for deer. If I saw some I was going to go back home and get my bow. In any case, as I near the top of hill and could just start to see the edge of the field, I noticed off to my left something moving. So I turned that way to see a very tall BF walking away from me. With the wind blowing my way it didn't realize I was observing it. Now since I'm looking up hill at it all I could see was it's head and neck and shoulder area. With the sky as the back drop. I saw it very well. It's head was massive. It had brownish to grayish hair. Groomed really nice. I could not see any ears. My guess is it was 8ft to 10ft tall. By the way, I was super scared as I knew it was a BF. I was so scared I remember thinking that if it turned to look at me..that I would crap my pants and pass out from fear, Lol. In any case, it took all I had to turn my back to it. Once I did I ran like hell back down the hill to the house which was only a couple hundred yards away.

Now with that said. Back in 1984 in that house...a trailer we lived in...one night we were in the house my brother and I. And all of a sudden we heard what sounded like a woman screaming right outside not far into the thickets behind the house. I went out onto the porch to listen better. And this scream was very loud from a very deep tone to very high pitched scream. And it did this over and over for at least 15 minutes. During all this screaming I went back into the house and loaded some guns. I now very much believe that scream was coming from the BF that I witnessed 2 years later.

OK with that...over the years for my own therapy doing my own BF research I come across a girl that lived on that same hill she witnessed that same BF up behind our house one day while she was picking blackberries. She told me she was picking and just looked up to see this BF standing there looking straight at her. A fear overcome her and she told me tears were just flowing from her eyes. Her mother was there too but she was just down the hill a bit and did not see the BF. In any case this girl said she was looking right at it's face. She described in pretty good detail, it matches the many other sightings people have, at least ones that have a face to face. In any case, I believe she turned to check for her mother's where about and when she turned back to where the BF was it had silently strolled off.

Now, she knowing that I had an interest in this BF, I just got a message from this woman now, today that her cousin who still lives on that same hill saw a BF the other night while he was standing outside at night. He stated it ran up hill right between where our house use to be and the house next door to him. She stated he said it scared the hell out of him.

So with that I feel confident that BF or perhaps a family of BFs still live on that hill. I can say this much I know that hill very well. And it fits as a perfect habitat...here's why....it's high up...very few houses....plenty of game including deer. The ridgeline is full of thickets no man wants to traverse. And if BF actually prefer caves, there's some of them on the backside. Also there is a creek on one side of the hill and full river on the other. There are also transmission lines running through there as well. Leaving cuts mile after mile.

With that I also had a encounter in Van Zandt county Texas ...I live in Texas now. In any case this was at night while I was out hog hunting. This thing tore down a tree near me and then skirted all around my stand as well as crawling in on its belly right up behind me. I use a starlight night scope for hog hunting but as luck would have it since it was behind me I could hardly get turned enough around in my stand to view it. But what I could see is that it was on its belly and had reached up far enough to grab a branch on the tree that was grown up tall enough that it was in front of my face. And this BF was moving that branch enough that it swaying right in front of my face. Now I'm just trying to rationalize what in the heck is going on. This went on for about 5 minutes. Being alarmed I sat back down in my stand hoping it would step out in front of me. An area I had control over since I was armed with a pistol and two rifles. But I heard it back back out the same way it came.

OK, with that the following week I shot a bore hog and placed it front of my game cam to see what all would come in on this hog.On my cam days later, I saw a coyote, buzzards, and a skinny dog. Well later at night on the cam I got pictures of the hog being rolled away from the cam and then pulled out away from the IR lights. I tried everything I could to lighten those pictures to see what might be able to do that. But didn't have much success with it. But my suspicion is that perhaps a BF on its belly was just far enough back on the ground to use its long arm to pull that hog it's way. Can't prove it. But I'm pretty positive it was not a coyote because a coyote was to small to pull it away.

Best Regards.

Thanks goes to Terry for sharing his reports with us. In some reports, I like to search from additional sightings in particular areas. I searched for reports in the same area as Terry's reports. Here is what I found.

 In Monongalia county, WV, which is the county in which the town of Booth is located, there has been one other report of Bigfoot activity. It seems a man has had several run ins with Bigfoot in this area while hunting. He tells of the unseen creature following him on a few occasions. His reports span from 1988 to 2003.

As for Terry's other report from Texas, there was one Bigfoot report from Van Zandt county. It was back in 1975. Two boys playing next to a creek seen a human looking figure covered in hair.

The additional reports can be found on the BFRO's website .

We hope to have a follow up to this post in the near future.

I got this report submitted a few days ago. I hope they can manage to get a recording of the sounds.

Here is the report.

Describe sighting in detail:

My daughter and I went outside to smoke and we heard something like we never heard before. We really didn't know what it was. We just looked at each other and said did you hear that and we heard it again.

The blood in my body ran cold. I wanted to call the police fearing someone up in the woods was hurt, but being new to the area was afraid they would think I was crazy. Still to this day I pray no one was up there.

Anyways we just stood there trying to figure out what we heard. I text my other daughter and told her to make sure all her doors and windows were locked. Oh course it being April fools day she thought we were playing.

The next morning we informed our neighbors and come to our surprise one of them had heard it to . He told us they went for a walk in the woods earlier that day 4-1-15 and he dropped his knife and went back later that evening to look for it and heard what he said may have been a coyote. At this point what I heard was not a coyote. this sound was something I could never forget. Last night I was watching - for the first time a show called Mountain Monsters.

Now during that show they were in Washington county pa. they caught on tape the same sound I heard that night on 4-1-15.

Truth be told I'm 99.9% afraid to go outside now because there is no doubt in my mind that what I heard was a Bigfoot or dustman. On 4-2-15 I went down to my daughters to explain it was no April fools joke. She knew in my face what I had told her was true. I still get choked up about it, remembering and hoping no one was up there.

Later that day my daughter informs me that her neighbor lady heard something horrifying too. See now I really had wished I would have call the police. But here I am now letting you all know.
Please help. Just come and look in the woods were we heard the sound. Thanks  sincerely Brenda

- End Report -

Unfortunately, this area is over 260 miles away from me in one direction and I don't have a team member close to the area. So, I can't come to the area and check it out. I do know that West Virginia is a very good location for Bigfoot and that there has been many reports from there.

I would like to encourage Brenda to attempt to get a sound recording of these unknown howls. Maybe, then we can rules out some different animals and maybe see if this indeed could be a Bigfoot.

A big thanks to Brenda for submitting the report.
