4 Recent Bigfoot Sightings That Will Make You Stay Awake At Night
Whether you are a believer or not, you have to admit that the Bigfoot myth is alive and well across North America. Recent bigfoot sightings of the large human-like creature are made every day.

Bigfoot-mania is so prevalent that Animal Planet has a series dedicated to finding the animal. Even though the show gets terrible reviews, is plagued with pseudoscience, and lacks any real research or investigative techniques, the subject matter alone draws an audience.

Nevertheless, reports of the creature keep rolling in. Some of these reports, whether you believe if they are real or not, are at least worth a retelling around a campfire.

Below are some of the creepiest recent Bigfoot sightings reported.

Recent Bigfoot Sightings

The Michigan Screamer

Even though this sighting occurred in 2011, it is worth a mention here. According to a hunter, he heard blood-curdling screams in the woods while field dressing a deer he killed during a hunt.

As the hunter tried to finish, the screams became louder and louder, which indicated that who or whatever was making those chilling screams was getting closer and closer.

The hunter claimed to have finished dressing the deer and headed back to his vehicle. However, there was one final scream. The hunter believes that it was an indication the creature had found the remains from the field dressing and stopped; allowing him to escape.

The Louisiana Hog Scarer

Another recent Bigfoot sighting involved two hunters in east Felicia Parish, Lousianna who reported that they had an encounter with “something” when they were out calling hogs at about 8 p.m.

The encounter began with bricked-sized rocks being hurled at them through the darkness. Thinking it was people, the two hunters called out.

However, the action must have allowed the assailant to hone in on their location because the bricks were landing closer to the two men.

The men decided to mimic “a recent bigfoot show” and scream. The result was a large grunt, which frightened them and caused them to vacate the area. They also reported that it is a common occurrence throughout that area that hogs often act like they are frightened for some unknown reason.

The Mill Creek Watcher

In March 2012, two avid outdoorsmen reported an incident they experienced in Anderson County, Tennessee. The report states that the two men were headed to a clearing to build a fire on a cold winter’s evening.

En route to the clearing, the two heard heavy footfalls, which they estimated to be only 60 yards away in the woods. Later that evening, after the fire was built and the two spent some time in the clearing, they noticed that the entire forest went silent.

Then, the men claim to have heard the breaking of branches and felt an overwhelming feeling of being watched. One witness stated, “I mean that feeling alone was terrifying because it just felt like pure hatred.”

Once again, the two decided to mimic the techniques seen on Finding Bigfoot. They begin make wood knocks and howls, which resulted in the getting knocks and howls back.

The Mississippi Caterwaulers

Nightly screams have been heard in Newton County, Mississippi. There are actually two distinct screams originating from two different locations according to recent Bigfoot sightings there.

However, the screams actually coincide, leaving some to believe the creatures are communicating with each other.

Screams are primarily heard at night and sometimes last throughout the night. It seems the screams began when a 60-acre tract of wooded land was recently cleared. Since the witness is a self-described hunter and has never heard anything of that nature, he attributes the sounds to Bigfoot.

Do You Believe in Bigfoot?

    The Indians on the Tule River Reservation have their own version of Bigfoot called the Hairy Man. There is a pictograph of him, his wife and child in a rock cave on the rez. Many have claimed to have seen him. I wrote about him in my book Dispel the Mist.

  • Hairy Man is quite the conundrum; probably more so than the “mainstream” Bigfoot. Simply because the Hairy Man pictograph has been interpreted as the depiction of a Creation Story, as the depiction of a Mourning Ceremony, and the depiction of a Bigfoot family. A very interesting tale!

  • gordon

    I heard the scream. Two summers ago. Didn’t even really remember it until I heard the same scream on that Bigfoot show. I never believed any of this until then. Whatever the show lacks, it convinced me.

  • Hi Gordon. Interesting experience. Do you mind if I ask where you heard the screams. Also, check out my other post about other instances of odd screams, Often these scream are attributed to Barn Owls or Foxes. The other article has sound bytes of the mysterious screams being heard and recordings of various animals making similar screams. I am curious to know if the screams you heard match any of those.

  • Hi Donna. Thanks for reading. It seems that your experience is similar to other readers here at TSW. I was curious, have you read my article on the Umatilla Screams. Many Wildlife & Fisheries authorities claim that these could be the result of owls and/or Foxes. In the article, I have some sound clips of both. I was hoping you could tell me if the sounds you heard were close to any of these. Here is the link:

    Let me know what you think.

  • Interesting story, Mike. When did this take place?

  • Donna King

    Hi Dennis, the sounds I heard are identical to the 1994 Ohio moan howl, captured by Matt Moneymaker. I hear foxes & owls nightly. Live in deep woods. I stood straight up in bed when I heard this call. My big outside dogs were horrified, and ran inside when I opened door to try an get a location on the calls. I’m in the woods everyday, but now I keep my eyes open a little wider…..

    Hi Zihuatl,

    Good eye. When images aren’t available, we just try to find something that will enhance the article and give a sense of the topic. There really aren’t any authentic images of bigfoot to share. If you find one, be sure to let us know.

  • Kevin Ochsner

    This happened in 1996 near the county line of Panola and Lafayette counties in MS. My buddy and I were out riding and it was close to midnight. I stopped the truck on this lonely 2 lane rd so we could relieve ourselves. We got back in the truck and sat talking for a few minutes. We both looked down the road about 100 yards away and a dark figure crossed the road from the north to the south. It was big and bipedal and stepped over the barbed wire fences on each side of the road. It never looked at us but we’ll never forget it. This area is just a couple miles from Sardis Lake backwaters at Clear Creek.

  • Kevin Ochsner

    Another incident occurred this time near the Sardis Dam in Panola Co MS. I only witnessed the strange behavior and impressions on his car of the person who had the actual sighting that he swears was Bigfoot. He was driving down Cold Springs Rd one night in 1999. It was a cold night and he said he had to slam on his brakes to keep from hitting something in the road. This something turned out to be what he said was Bigfoot. Bigfoot pressed down on the hood of his car as he put the car in reverse and gunned it. He never looked back as he sped home. I was staying at my buddy’s house in Batesville and this teenager lived next door. Anyways he came home and ran in the house calling for his mom. His mom said he was white as a ghost and shaking. After retelling the story to her they walked outside to the car. There in the dew on the hood were two huge handprints. We heard it from him the very next day and his mom swears he was not lying.

    Please tell me you are joking……..

  • Lela

    i do my late husband and i were in hocking hills ohio and saw footprint behind our car..we were staying in a cabin where deer came then went hiking and we always felt like something was watching us

  • Lela

    it rained that night but the footprint was big

  • “Ghostman”

    I’ve been an avid Bigfoot enthusiast since I was a teenager in Michigan back in the late 70’s. Since then I joined the Army and was in the Recon / Scout – SpecOps.

    Never have I or any team member see, hear or find evidence of such in any country we deployed to. Our missions were Covert Ops so, intelligence gathering and close proximity to danger locations was our specialty.

    No, we weren’t looking for Bigfoot or whatever they called it around the globe but, we always talked about the possibility and what course of action would be taken to secure the AO.

    After my stint in the military & combat operations I’ve always hunted big game and from the many years of marksmanship training and patrol techniques I can say 1000yd shots were practiced engagement of targets. Cover, concealment, noise and light discipline, smell etc is still practiced to the day when in the wild = STEALTH.

    I have also conducted multiple years of studies using high tech electronic video and still capture of wildlife in various types of habitats in the Southeast USA. These locations were baited, open green fields, creek banks & beds, thickets, clear cuts, hardwoods, pine stands, bottoms, trail crossings, logging roads etc.

    Never have I captured anything resembling a Bigfoot or type animal on the intense night illumination equipment using white, red glow and black IR flash. I can also say that the way the camera systems were placed if anything entered the area it would’ve been captured on this equipment and with very clear resolution.

    I still have a sneaky suspicion that it may exist but, just not where I operated in 3 Southeastern Gulf states. With that said, I am interested in the fact why any of the tv shows i watch never utilize the same high tech equipment to cover more areas plus add in some of the early warning devices we used in the military to gain proof.

    I do have a clear image of a deer that was attacked by something that I believe got away and highly doubt it was any coyote or dog. There are no roads near here or fences, barbed wire or people that would’ve caused this. I added the picture where it was seen at a baited food pile that contained all kinds of food sources the animals ate or investigated.

    I’m not sure what it takes to become part of an expedition to try and REALLY locate this animal on camera or video before “putting it on a slab” for forensics. I also believe that a squad of highly trained Rangers from my area would be a great asset as an outer perimeter of tactical early warning personnel to be the eyes and ears relayed to the inner circle of the waiting team.

    I can assure you that Bigfoot would never know we were there and would walk right past us into your perimeter area. We would also be armed in case anything compromised either team at any given moment. Stealth operations are best conducted at night.

    If there is anyway we can be of service to join in on the expedition or just myself please let me know by responding to this message and we can go from there.
    If it’s out there, we’ll have some form of evidence first from the electronic technology it won’t be able to avoid.

    For some unseen reason I couldn’t post any images to this post.
