COUNTY: Clallam County
LOCATION DETAILS: On June 22, 2020; I was parked just outside the Swan Bay launch site at Ozette Lake on a logging road. About a 1/4 mile from the launch site heading east take a left onto the logging road into the clear cut. I parked approx a 1/4 mile in and my RV could be seen by the road.
NEAREST TOWN: Old Royal
NEAREST ROAD: Hoko/Ozette road off Hwy 112
OBSERVED: I was accompanied by my wife and 15-yo son. We has built a fire and when the sun had set I mentioned to my wife that Sasquatch's are known to answer howls. I am on the BFRO site 4-days a week to track sightings and am a firm believer after reading Dr. Meldrum's book: Sasquatch-Legend Meets Science. I made a howl like the 1994 Moaning Howl Ohio call recording on this site. I am a trained vocalist and can project my voice loudly. I cupped my face and let out a howl. Its was answered.
I was facing east and let out a howl every 30-60 seconds that was answered progressively closer. Astonished, I kept it up and the return was always closer. My wife fled to into the RV in fear. My son would not come out. I was not in fear but in hopes of seeing a Sasquatch. I did not have my cell phone with me to record the sasquatch returning howls. I grabbed my .44 magnum revolver (just in case) and a flashlight scanning the trees in hopes to see a illuminated red pair of eyes. As soon as I had my pistol in my hand there were no more returning howls. I was never in fear but in awe. There must have been 10-12 howls and returns. With the first reply. I would guess that the Sasquatch at least a mile away and with the last, maybe a 1/4 to an 1/8 of a mile if not closer.
On 6/30/2020, we returned home and I had my wife and son listed to the 1994 Ohio howls. They were shocked that that was what they had heard.
ALSO NOTICED: Nothing
OTHER WITNESSES: 3-witness to include my wife and 15-yo son
OTHER STORIES: 2020 Shi Shi beach incident and report #10091
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Just after sunset when it got dark-930-10pm
ENVIRONMENT: The environment is coastal flat clear-cut with alder trees and a few tall fir tress on the left side of the Swan Bay boat launch road (100 yards from the launch take a left on the FS road). Long grass in marshy meadows and I saw a elk harem. Lots of frogs croaking. Lake Dickey is just a few miles to the east of this site.
