Bigfoot and the bodyguard – from foes to friends
By Mary Joyce, website editor

NOTE: To protect Bigfoot locations, psynodymns are used in this article.

Back in 2015, Jack was the bodyguard for Samantha who lived in fear after Bigfoot invaded her property.  At the time, he admitted he also was afraid and wouldn’t go on her property without his gun.  To this day, their story is the most multi-faceted Bigfoot photo story we’ve ever posted on this website. CLICK HERE to read the article.

Shortly after posting that story, Jack discovered he had at least four or five Bigfoot on his own property, which is just a few miles from Samantha’s place.  That’s not so surprising, but it is surprising that he has become friends with the Bigfoot.

When I asked Jack why he no longer feared the Bigfoot, he said, “I stopped being so afraid when you guys came to Samantha’s place for an interview.  That’s when we learned we were responsible for their aggressive behavior.  Their cave had been flooded when the dam for the pond was being repaired – and they were angry and retaliated.”

The Bigfoot reign of terror stopped after Samantha communicated with the Bigfoot that they never intended to flood their cave and she was so sorry it happened.  That also was when Jack stopped carrying his gun.

“Now I regularly see Bigfoot tracks on my own driveway,” he explained.  “I’ll go out some nights and they will whistle at me as soon as I step out of the house, and I’ll whistle back.  I believe there is at least one, if not a couple, that will hoot-owl at me and I’ll hoot-owl back.  And then the real owls will hoot.  It’s kind of a playful thing.  We also put food out for them all the time.”

My wife is a bit of a doubter and didn’t believe the Bigfoot were whistling and hoot-owling with me,” Jacked added. “Then one night she came into the house as white as a sheet. I could tell there was something really the matter. The Bigfoot had whistled at her as she was walking from the car to the house and she was scared to death.  I told her not to be afraid because if they wanted to eat us, they would have done that a long time ago.”

Jack added that the Bigfoot have made a long path through the laurels on his land.

“There’s a path through the laurels that looks like the Bigfoot have walked over them and mashed them down for at least 60 feet,” Jack said, “and several small trees were just snapped off or broken over.”

Trail of huge Bigfoot prints through snow

The following Bigfoot prints were found on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Northern Minnesota by a member of the Ojibwe tribe.  He said he found the Bigfoot trail in 3.5 feet of snow. To help show the huge size of the footprints, he placed a rake handle next to the prints for the second photo. The handle is 4.2 feet in length.

“Little Footers” – Young Bigfoot Researchers
By Mary Joyce, website editor

“You don’t have to be an adult to do Bigfoot research,” says Lauren Smith, host of ‘Nite Callers Bigfoot Radio.’  My boys are five and eight years old and I often take them with me when I’m out in the woods doing Bigfoot research.  It’s an education for them in so many ways. They learn all about nature, camping safety and how to do accurate Bigfoot investigations.

“Because of them, I was inspired to launch a little segment on my YouTube channel called Little Footers – The Next Generation where I interview my own children and those of other Bigfoot researchers.  I’ve enjoyed the segment so much because when I talk to the kids, I realize how much they pick up and what profound thoughts they can have.  It will just blow your mind what they come up with.

“My two boys are actually the third generation in my family that has gotten into Bigfoot research,” Lauren says. 

“It started with my mother, Laurie Dyer Hood. She was scrolling thru the Internet and found a Bigfoot chatroom which made her laugh. She thought it was the biggest malarkey she’d ever heard.

“Then at one point they played a recorded Bigfoot sound that made the hair on the back of her neck stand up. She had heard the sound before so she became more interested. Then she had her own sighting and it launched her into her research.”

“When I was 12 or 13, I started going out in the field with my mother until I stopped for a while after I graduated high school.  But then as an adult, I started researching again with her and also on my own.  I’ve been doing it since 2000.

“Then around 2010, my mother launched the “Nite Callers Bigfoot Radio Show.’  I eventually became her co-host.  Recently she retired from her job and the radio show so she can do more Bigfoot research, so the reins have been turned over to me.”

Here is a link to Lauren’s video interview with me for her show:

Woman’s encounter with a Little Person
By Mary Joyce, website editor

The following account of an encounter with a Little Person was sent to our website on February 12, 2021 by Susan Crone who lives in Denver, Colorado.

Some people might doubt her story, but there are two reasons I have to consider that it might be true.  First, I have interviewed down-to-earth construction workers about their Little People discoveries in the North Carolina Mountains. Their testimonies are in my book “Cherokee Little People Were Real.”  Second, I have since met with people who have had face-to-face encounters with Little People who still live in remote areas of the Appalachian Mountains.

SUSAN’S ACCOUNT: “I just had a really cool Little People experience. I was suddenly compelled to take a second look at a photo I’d taken of a glyph that appeared on my patio last fall (above left).  As I did, I heard, clear as day, a tiny voice say, ‘Don’t you know who that is, silly?  That’s you hiking!”  That was followed by tinkling laughter. 

“I looked at the glyph photo again and saw the red hair.  I got chills.  It really looked like me - walking stick and all.”

Though this was a unique experience for Susan, she added that she is of Irish descent and has had “encounters with the wee folks” since she was a small child, and that her Dad believed in them also.



"Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state. It will be a great way for people to enjoy our area and to have some fun.”

Legislator wants Bigfoot hunting season - UPDATE
By Mary Joyce, website editor

UPDATE:  The Oklahoma Legislature DID NOT PASS Rep. Justin Humphrey’s bill that would create a Bigfoot hunting season. But this is not stopping his efforts to encourage Bigfoot hunting. According to a March 19, 2021 article on NBC-TV Internet news in Oklahoma, Humphrey is now working with state officials to set up rules for a “Sasquatch Quest” which would give a reward for the capture of an unharmed Bigfoot.

If there’s anything you might want to say to Rep. Justin Humphrey, leave him a message at 405-557-7382 or type E-mail Representative Justin Humphrey in your search bar and send your message via the email form provided.


Justin Humphrey, Oklahoma State Representative, has filed legislation that would establish a Bigfoot hunting season in his state. He also hopes to secure at least $25,000 as a bounty for the first person to trap the creature.
This is stomach-churning for many reasons.  First, Dr. Melba Ketchum discovered several years ago that Bigfoot DNA is half human and half some unknown primate.  Other DNA researchers have since confirmed her findings.  That makes Bigfoot some kind of distant cousins to us humans.

Second, Native American tribes long have regarded and respected Bigfoot as another clan of people who have much in common with them.

Third, there are many reports of Bigfoot actually saving humans.  Two of those reports are included in my book “BIGFOOT – Beyond the footprints.”  There are others such as a Bigfoot killing a wildcat that was about to pounce on a man.

Humphrey’s House Bill 1648 will come before the legislature in February 2021. If you find his proposal reprehensible as we do, give a call to:

● Rep. Charles McCall, Speaker of the House – 405-557-7412
● Rep. Terry O’Donnell, Speaker Pro Tempore – 405-557-7379
● Rep. Ty Burns, Chairman of Wildlife Committee – 405-557-7344
● Rep. Eddy Dempsey, Vice Chair of Wildlife Committee – 405-557-7363

There are lists of the 101 members of the Oklahoma House of Representative, so if you have the time and inclination to contact more of them, their phone numbers are available.
