I will share the only (possible bigfoot) experience I've had. Along with anecdotal evidence from a trusted relative.
Maybe it will help your research, or others.
In fall of 1983, I was attending college and living near the University of Texas San Antonio. There was a lot of undeveloped land around the area,
including an area which was being developed into what is now known as Crown Ridge (near Six Flags Fiesta Texas). I had a nice convertible at the time,
and my girlfriend had the idea that we should go out in the woods and park to watch the stars etc.
There were no houses in the hilly Crown Ridge area, only newly cleared unpaved roads. We pulled up onto a rather steep road, around a curve, and
backed up next to a treeline in a cul-de-sac. The convertible top was down, nice cool clear autumn sky. We were there maybe 10 minutes, and were
getting distracted from the star watching ahemmm...
Suddenly from directly behind the car, very loud and close but in the dark of the woods, the most unearthly sound I have ever heard. A mixture of
screeching warbling sound, with an almost robotic subtone. She screamed and my hair stood literally on the back of my scalp. I started the car and
floored it, fishtailing out of that cul-de-sac, with her crying hysterically all the while. I did not want to look back.
It sounded alien, out of this world, so that's where I categorized it for many years.
I have spent a lot of time in the woods as a hunter, including hunting wild boar at night with only moonlight (perfectly legal here). I have heard
owls, boar, exotic deer, mountain lions, illegal aliens, cranes, herons, egrets on and on. I have never heard a sound like that, except......
I was watching a History channel show around 5 years ago, and they played a recording made of an alleged bigfoot sound. It was made by some tribal
police possibly either in Minnesota or lower Canada, and it sounded like what I had heard, almost exactly. It gave me the creeps when I heard it.
I found a recording which may be the same one, but there is no info. about the circumstances. It is "Wierd Scream" at this
Bigfoot research link.
Anecdotal: A cousin-in-law told me when we were in our late teens, of an encounter he had while roaming in the woods near Baker, LA. He said he came
into a clearing, and walked up on two bigfoot about 20 yds away. He said they acted just as startled as he was. One was big (7 ft) and the other was
around his height or less (guessing 5' 4" he was around 14 yrs). He said they turned and ran the opposite direction, as he did.
