James “Bobo” Fay with some serious wood knockin’ sticks
This is a report that was published in Ray Crowe’s Track Record in 2001. Bobo may have at one time gone by Jay instead of James, I don’t know, he has always been Bobo to me. I think the age is incorrectly reported as well. Regardless of those minute details, this is a great report full of blood curdling details. I also like that it was investigated by Joe Beelart (read more about Joe Beelart) and reported over the phone to Ray Crowe.
Humboldt County, California
Jay “Bobo” Fay had a series of incidents in northern California in late May, 2001. The sighting was referred to Joe Beelart for investigation. The site, east of Arcata, California, near the Klamath River and in the Bald Hills near Weitchpec, and east of Orick to north near Schoolhouse Peak. The following abstracted from telephone notes of Joe Beelart. On May 21st, Jay (nickname Bobo), went to the mountains near the Klamath River, 15-18 miles NE of Orick on the north side of Bald Mtn., three to five miles north on Johnson Road. and when alone at night, he was aggressively confronted by two and possible three vocalizing, limb breaking, sasquatches. He heard knocking of wood-on-wood on the Bald Hill road. Twice, there were two sharp blows, about 100 yards away in the treeline. Canine howling after 9pm from several miles to the NW…coyote, dog, wolf. As they came closer howls became a man-wail. They were answered from his immediate left at 9:30PM. There was brush moving, loud snaps of sticks breaking, and motion to his side.
At 150 yards in the tree line there was a vocalization of, “AHHH,” like huge exhalings and lips flapping like a horse sound. The two howls merged, maybe a third was there also. Never saw anything.
The closest they came to the vehicles was 50 yards. A pit bull in the truck made no noise and had tail between legs. On May 22nd. Bobo went to area again, alone. Another display of vocal aggression, but not as close as the previous night. May 27th.
Bobo at site with John Freitas and Eric Holland. Bigfoot calls were broadcast. A large Bigfoot approached within 20 feet of the vehicle, within 10-15 min of starting broadcast. No photos were taken by veteran researchers. (Unbelievable!)
(Allegedly) A huge 9 foot creature (gauged by stump height) bluff charged John’s car at 11:15pm. A Starlight viewer of Russian Ukrainian model, Gen. II night scope used for viewing. It was snorting, a nasal noise, bobbing up and down, for 10-20 seconds. It was big and block shaped. Would raise arm over head, like a big monkey. There was no neck, a giant black blob, moving through tree line. When running there was a huge boom-boom sound, but padding could also be heard.
A large thump was heard as if something was thrown. No tracks were found. At one time it tried to stand behind a small tree, but stuck out 1 1/2 feet on each side, but still tried to “peek” out. It bobbed its head continuously. Ray Crowe met “Bobo” at the opening of the Bigfoot extension museum in Willow Creek (he had some reports).
Bobo is a former logger, 45, 6’4.”
He’s been looking for Bigfoot for 15 years.(C) Track Record 2001
By the way, I highly recommend purchasing the digital version of the Track Record. You can buy the Track record at Amazon.com.
The track record has over 174 Newsletters spanning the years 1991-2007 containing over 3000 pages. As editor, ray Crowe did a fantastic job collecting all sorts of Bigfoot lore.
