Ginseng Hunter Finds Bigfoot Evidence

On September 8th I went into an area, that I'm fairly familiar with, to explore for ginseng. Logging had taken place in one of my favorite places to ginseng hunt, so I had to go to another spot. This particular area is an area that I normally only go to a couple times a year.

This general area is also home to a handful of bigfoot sightings and track findings. I have explored the area in the past and found a few tracks and some stick formations. It is a good area, but I have two other areas that have been very active over the years and I just never had time to really go to this area very often.

On this day, I was exploring for ginseng, I had found some but it was nothing to write home about. The area is very steep and rough. Some of the steep areas have a lot of loose rock and footing is very difficult. These types of conditions tend to wear a person down sooner. I had been in the area for around 4 hours and decided to work my way back towards my truck.

On my way back I made some discoveries that seemed unusual to me. I had found an old mine opening and one large humanoid foot track. While in this area I never saw an other human tracks or evidence that a person had been in the area. While this track in the mud didn't have much definition it was interesting and right in front of the old mine opening. Then I discovered several odd stick breaks. The first one I filmed was about as round as half a dollar. The second and probably the largest of the breaks was about as big around as a soda/pop can. These were much too large to have been broken off by a human. These breaks were also fairly close together as if something or someone was marking a trail. While filming one of the breaks I also captured another event. 

Check out the video.

One thing I noticed after being in this area was that it wore me down more than usual. On the 9th (today) I woke up tired and a little sore, which is unusual for me as I normally spend a lot of time in the mountains and grow accustomed to the rigors of traversing the terrain. But as I stated this area was really steep about 80 percent of the time. It was rough, the footing was bad and spots were very slick. All of this wore me down more than I had realized. I have also spent 5 out of the last 9 days out in the woods, including this morning. So maybe it has a cumulative effect on me. If I feel up to it, I have tentative plans to be back in that area tomorrow. 

Another factor that could have played into me being a little more worn down is the fact I have lost some sleep this week. Our getting up times have been different than normal so I have had less sleep.

Anyways, I do and have been (for years) spending many days out in the mountains. I enjoy it and dread the day when I am physically unable to do it. 

Thanks for reading the post and watching the video. I will update you if I'm able to find or capture anything else in the area upon my return.
