Sasquatch Researcher Will Jevning on Beyond the Gate Radio tonight at 8 PM Central on blogtalkradio.
Listen live here.
William Jevning is a researcher of Sasquatch, otherwise known as Bigfoot. He is also author of several books on the subject including Notes from the Field, Tracking North America’s Sasquatch. His interest started at age 14. He says: I was 14 years old during December 1972, when a friend and I came upon large manlike footprints in the snow while we were walking to another of our friend’s homes. When we got to our friend John Adam’s house we were very upset by what we had seen, his father told us to take him to where we found the footprints, he took a gun and camera, and after taking photographs of the tracks told us what he thought had made them. We had never heard the term “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch” before, and the idea that 7 foot hairy monsters roamed the forests near where we lived grabbed our imaginations. We went to John’s house every weekend for months and had long discussions about these creatures, and went looking in the forests often, but we never saw anything more and soon forgot mostly about them. Then one evening in 1974, my collie began barking furiously toward the nearby tree line near my home. I grabbed one of my .22 rifles thinking a raccoon or some other animal that had been eating my sisters cat’s food was nearby; my father said some animals might have distemper and not allow them near the house as they might infect our pets. With this in mind I took my dog and headed toward the tree line. No sooner than my dog reached the edge of the forest, he froze, then turned quickly and ran at top speed past me toward our house; there he sat on the porch shivering like he was scared to death. I had never seen him react that way.
