Camper hears strange knocking and screams in Tillamook Forest
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Tillamook County
NEAREST TOWN: Jones creek
NEAREST ROAD: I think it's jones creek road all the way back to 4 mile marker on tree
OBSERVED: I was camping at Jones Creek at exactly the 4 mile marker on July 7, 2014. The woods were very quiet and only one guy on a 4 wheeler came past me and then again leaving much earlier that day. Just at dusk I heard a yell like no other animal I have ever heard about a quarter mile south. It lasted about 10 seconds. A minute or two later it happened again only louder. The hair stood up on the back of my neck. About 5 minutes later another yell comes about a quarter mile north of me only this time its 3 times louder. It yelled 5 separate times with about 10 seconds between each 10 second long yell. These yells were much stronger of a voice than the first two yells. About 2 minutes later the first yeller did it again only it sounded like it was further south. I don't believe a human could be as loud as this was at a distance and the voice was far too big. I was scared to death and spent the night with my gun in my hand laying frozen in my completely dark tent trailer. I was afraid to turn any lights on just pretended to be asleep. At 4:30 am the first log truck went by followed by several others so I felt safe again.
OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone
OTHER STORIES: Yes, I was on the same road but it splits to the left and I was at the pull out turnaround at about 5.5 miles back. That night just as it started to rain I heard loud knocking like a tree branch hit against a tree. It came from multiple locations for about an hour. It was hard to be sure what I was hearing because of the rain noise on the tent trailer roof. I stopped going that far back because of this incident.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Dusk just before dark
ENVIRONMENT: Forest, I was camping in my tent trailer at the oversized truck pull out
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Cindy & Jerod Caddell:
I interviewed Thomas (last name withheld for privacy) and he seemed to be very credible. He knows the area well and has camped there several times. I visited the area that he said his experience was and it is next to a creek with ridges on either side. The area is somewhat isolated and heavily forested. I found Thomas to be honest and seemed to be very upset when talking about how he had pretended to sleep with his gun in his hand. In the morning he heard logging trucks go by and felt a bit safer. He waited till it was light and packed up and left the area. This is an area that historically has had sasquatch reports although Thomas was unaware of this.
