Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:
I spoke with a couple of the witnesses. The family group of hunters had split up beforehand but the witnesses are very certain that it was not those other family members playing pranks because they all heard some knocks after the group reunited.
The knocks started occurring at dusk, roughly 6pm was there guess. There was no one else in the area. The group hiked in at least 1.5 miles from where they parked.
The knocks were heavy and loud wood knocks. They were “double knocks” (two in row) and were clearly responding to each other from two different directions. One direction was to the southwest of coordinates shown above. The other direction was to the southeast. It was difficult to determine the distance from witnesses but they estimate within 100 yards.
The son had seen two cow elk in the area earlier but there were no elk visible in the meadow near which the group was waiting.
