According to the Bigfoot Field Researcher's Organization (BFRO), which documents Bigfoot encounters in its database, an Idaho man may have had an encounter with the elusive creature on August 8th of this year. Bruce Davenport reported that he was camping in a remote area near the Saint Joe River when the incident occurred. He was listening to classic rock through a speaker at about 9:30 PM, when he heard three loud whoops from the hill side above and to the east of him. Bruce said that he was the only person camping in the remote area and that he could tell it was not a human sound. After he turned off the music, the whooping stopped. He tried making a similar sound back to the creature, but heard nothing in return. He had no further such experiences for the rest of the night. According to the BFRO, the area is indeed remote and unlikely to have any other human campers in the area.
This is not Bruce's first experience with Bigfoot. He had an even closer encounter with the creature on Labor Day weekend in 2012. He was camping about 2.6 miles west of where the latter incident occurred, when a fellow camper began chopping wood. After the wood chopping was finished, at about 7:30 at night, there was about 10 minutes of silence, when Bruce heard two loud knocks coming from across the road and up the hill side. Again, this is a remote area and unlikely to have other campers in the vicinity. He said that the knock had more resonance than the sound of chopping wood and was very distinctive. As he looked at the hill side, he saw the creature's large dark face peering at him through the brush. The two stared at each other for about a minute before Bruce walked away to get a gun. When he returned to the location, the Bigfoot was gone. He described the creature to the BFRO as having a big oval, dark face and big dark eyes. Bruce says that he has been camping in the area for 20 years, but has only had these two experiences. Both the knocking and whooping are typical of Bigfoot reports. Since he also saw the creature in 2012, his latest report is definitely interesting.
