A couple days ago this article showed up in our local newspaper in Lincoln Nebraska. It is detailing a set of strange and quite large tracks showing up at a golf course located in the middle of nowhere. The location of the tracks were near the town of Curtis, NE, a small town with the population of under 1,000 people. Newspaper Article Over the last couple days I have watch people try to explain the track. I figured my friends at ATS would have some fun debating how this print showed up and possibly what it is.

Personally, I don't subscribe that it is some unique species running around the hills of Nebraska. But for a state where the biggest thing roaming around is a cow, it does peak my interest.

That heal mark looks pretty well defined and the separation in front has a pretty straight edge. Much like a standard work boot. The spacing is pretty weird, even with just three tracks the spacing between them isn't equal.

I notice a small game trail next to it, not sure if that has any bearing on these.

I was wondering if maybe someone was running around with some swim flippers. Unfortunately, it snowed one day and the three days following were in the 60's and 70's. Any chance of getting a look at these myself is gone.

Very interesting indeed,

that doesn't look like a normal Bigfoot footprint, the toes look too elongated, looks like a giant chicken foot!

that or a Xenomorph from Aliens!!!

Thank you for loading the picture. Can you imagine a chicken that size, that would make hunting season a lot more interesting for sure!

Definitely strange,

here is a (Suspected) Bigfoot picture



they look completely different,

hopefully the skill of people on ATS can help.

hopefully this makes it to the front page!

Just to be a bit nit-picky, but that picture you posted was taken in the Himalayas and is allegedly a 'Yeti' footprint, not a Bigfoot print, for all we know these two cryptids are not (closely) related.

I couldn't find anywhere in the article that states how far these tracks went. A set of tracks that only contains a handful of prints is suspect in my mind, they have to be coming from somewhere and going to somewhere to be the prints of a real animal.

I'd guess they were tracks from a very sleepy bear or a bear that was short and was overlapping it's front tracks with the back. Now this is just one example, someone could have seen some like this and figured if they only photographed the best ones they could put them out and get attention.

This is just one possible idea, it could also be a bear with weird feet or another big animal of some sort. Could even be someone with some special made shoes walking around. I have seen weird tracks in the woods, sometimes animals follow the same footprints as others, just like we sometimes walk in the snow.

I think my footprint is bigger and wider than that, and I only have a size 15EEEE foot. My big toe is fat like that too.

That foot looks more like it belongs to a large bipedal reptile than it does a sasquatch. Just throwing my 2 cents in.

Hello, Although I know I say this lots even though it's true. While walking through some densely forested areas in Saskatchewan (Canada) I once came across a set of tracks that were large and looked a lot like the one in the pic.

instead of 4 long toes it had three, and the heel is very much the same, as is the general shape of the print. I'm no expert on tracking animals so when my partner, who was there with me, asked what the tracks were from..my only response was something like "I don't know, but I'm not sticking around to find out!"

Tracks change allot when the snow melts I really wonder if it's just some snowshoe tracks from a few days earlier.

Fresh tracks would be nice to see.

As someone who tracks wildlife professionally (as I've mentioned in a number of my other posts) my first question is - why is there no center straddle?

Well, there's this

After finding the footprints that morning, she called Babe over to investigate. The dog wasn’t impressed or interested. The tracks seemed to emerge from the trees and then return to their cover, but Jorgensen wasn’t about to follow.


and this


The 30-year-old has run the golf course for a half-dozen years, but until he followed the tracks from the third to the fourth, he’d never encountered anything out of the ordinary.


Which seem to be two completely different things to me..

It is absolutely not snowshoe tracks.

Also, I collect images of track patterns. I try hard not to get unrelated tracks in frame. For instance often my snowmobile track will be running along side the track of interest. Its really difficult to get it out of frame because the image fans out with distance. If the track was faked there would have to be a track running along side, typically along the left hand side. This makes me ask - Why is the track not centered in frame? It looks like a strong effort has been made to frame out a track running parallel, left of the track in question?

Looking at the close-up of the print, the negative space between the toes and arch looks backwards. The prints are melted out a bit though, and you can never just look at one print and make a conclusion. I hope there are images of other prints and rotations.

If it is a real animal it would have to be bipedal, though the track pattern even for a bibedal animal is kind of impossible. Not much of an example in the images though. I hope more images of full rotations surface.
