Nebraska Bigfoot Sightings

In November (2017), the State Troopers investigated an alleged bigfoot sighting.
"Last night at about 10:15, somebody reported seeing BIGFOOT on the shoulder of I-80 near MM 197.
A trooper responded, but reported that 'Sasquatch remained elusive.'

Must have just missed him."

Harriet Mcfeely and friend Robin Roberts were on their way back from Colorado. Roberts had dropped Mcfeely off at her home and continued on her way. A short time later, she called Mcfeely, excited, to tell her of what she had just witnessed.

Explained Mcfeely: "She said 'I just saw a Bigfoot -- he was standing right here on the shoulder of the road.'" Mcfeely went on to say "She said he was really big. He was really heavy and stocky."  The creature was standing inside the fence that is meant to keep deer away from the road, and was about 20 feet away from the roadside. Roberts estimated the size as at least 8 feet tall. "Right at that time, there wasn't a lot of cars going either way right there. That's why she saw him so clearly."

"I said 'Is this considered an official sighting of a Bigfoot?' They said 'definitely'," she said referring to the State Troopers.

Mcfeely is the CEO and founder of the Nebraska Bigfoot Crossroads of America. She started believing in bigfoot at the age of 8 when she read about Hillary's finding of Yeti tracks up on Mt. Everest. She's been researching and chasing after rumors and reports since then.

Some called this sighting a hoax, and an effort to boost tourism and publicize the Nebraska Bigfoot Crossroads of America annual conference that was held in February of 2018.

"This might make a big Nebraska tourism campaign. We had the total eclipse last summer. Let's promote Bigfoot hunting in 2018," wrote one skeptic.

Despite those who say there are no bigfoot in Nebraska, the BFRO has over a dozen encounters listed. And if you consider that most experiences go unreported, and yet still deduct those that are mistaken identifications and those that are imagined, made up, or hoaxed, there is still enough left over to say there are bigfoot in Nebraska.

In 2014, Mcfeely and her husband, Dick, saw a family of four bigfoot in Central Colorado during a midnight encounter on a camping trip with their friend Robin Roberts.

"She always talks to them. She called them and they came down . . . . 'Hey guys, we're here.' It was the weirdest feeling I've ever had in my life. They were standing in a line, in a row, looking at us. And we were standing looking at them. Nobody was afraid and they never, ever threatened us," said Mcfeely.

The adults were 8 to 10 feet tall with broad shoulders. They were covered in dark brown or black hair and had large red eyes as big as "golf balls". The juveniles stood about 5 feet tall.

It was in 2012 after attending other conferences in near by states and having to drive miles to get there, her husband Dick suggested to her that she should organize her own festival or conference in Nebraska. Dick's death in 2016 did not stop Mcfeely from pursuing that idea. Along with 5 women friends and fellow researchers, she established her organization and an annual conference in the state of Nebraska.

Mcfeely states that Nebraska has all the habitat needs for a population of bigfoot. The best places to look are in the wooded areas along the streams and rivers.

In 2013 Mcfeely investigated a 15 year old boy's claim of seeing a bigfoot on a country road during predawn hours. Although it was a little while before she was able to get there, she did find 5 different arches in the area. She offered the opinion that the arches were a way of marking territory. As for the boy's sighting : "I have no doubt in my mind it was true."

Other encounters in the state :

A couple years ago, Sharon Jorgensen was out walking her dog at the Arrowhead Meadows Golf Course in Curtis, Nebraska. She discovered unusually large tracks in the snow. They were 14 to 15 inches long with a 6 foot stride.

In 1986, in an area west of Macy, Nebraska, strange footprints were reported. Roger Sharpe, an associate professor of biology at the University of Nebraska in Omaha, was called in to investigate the alleged bigfoot tracks.

The police report by Macy police officer Milton Miller stated that the prints were 15 inches long, with the middle part of the foot spanning 3 1/2 inches and the toes spanning 7 1/2 inches. As the tracks were weather worn from the hot sun, blowing winds, and rainfall they were unable to come to any conclusion on who or what caused the tracks.

As for Sharpe, he proclaimed that neither the size nor stride of the tracks appeared "abnormal" to him.
