Numerous Bigfoot Encounters in Deep East Texas

Texas Bigfoot

A few days ago on the Merrell in the Morning Show, we reported a story about Rick Dyer who claimed to have shot a Bigfoot in the San Antonio area.  Inasmuch as most folks consider his claim to be a farce, it set Sean Ericson and myself on a quest to get more information about Dyer’s story.  In this process, we discovered an organization called the North American Wood Ape Conservancy (NAWAC).

We ended up making contact with Brian Brown who talked at length with us about Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or wood apes, as they refer to them.  We learned that the main goal of NAWAC is too gather as much information as possible about wood apes so as to scientifically prove their existence.

Bigfoot, or wood ape, or whatever you want to call them, are considered at worst a joke and at best a myth by most folks.  Brown realizes this as well, but he and his organization would just ask you to wait before proclaiming final judgment: wait until more facts are documented to either prove or disprove their existence.

In the meantime, through our interview with Brian Brown and going through the NAWAC website, we learned a lot of interesting information:

  • If you’re in the woods and you start to get pelted with rocks, you may have had a Bigfoot encounter
  • The ‘Ohio Howl‘ and ‘Tahoe Scream‘ are sounds thought to be made by wood apes.
  • There have been numerous documented Bigfoot encounters through the years in the Pineywoods of East Texas.
  • The survival of their species depends on them being aloof and secretive.

These are just a few of the documented East Texas encounters with the creature commonly referred to as Bigfoot:

March 2008 – near the Lufkin Industries trailer plant just off Highway 69.

Winter 1979 – Peavy Switch area near FM 2497

October 1972 – Angelina National Forest near Lake Sam Rayburn.
