REPORT DETAIL

Description of event: I left Oklahoma City with my two brothers Bobby and Jimmy and a friend named John in August of 1980 for the state of Oregon on a possible long time stay. After a 5 day drive we came to the small town of Drain, were Jimmy had been a fewyears earlier with his x-wife and child. After about a 3-4 weeks we got settled in and everything was looking good for us.One early morning in October of 1980 I got up and ask my brother Jimmy if he knew of a place to go elk hunting. He told me that he had been to a place a few years ago just outside a small town called Yoncalla Oregon, about 20 miles south of Drain Oregon on HWY 99. So we took off to go check out the area he told me about.We drove just on the south side on Yoncalla about 2-3 miles and turned to the west on aold logging road. The went up the road for about 2 miles and came to a fork in the road. At that time I ask Jimmy, do I go right or left? He told me it doesn't matter, so I turned right. The road ended at the top of a mountain about 2 more miles up. The road that turned left at the (Y) ended at the top of a mountain about 600-700 yards away to the left.Jimmy and I got out of the car for a nature call, after about 20 sec. Jimmy told me to look over on the other mountain top, he saw something move. I looked and I told him that I don't see anything. About 10 sec. Later Jimmy told me, look I saw something move! I looked, at that time we saw a BIG Black thing walking like a man. It walked over to the edge on the mountain in the direction of the road that went left at the (y) in the road. It was standing there for about 10-20 sec. Before it walked back to were we saw it start to walk at first. When it stopped it turned and was looking at us for about 30 sec. And then turned with its back to us, that's when we saw the little one standing there beside it as they walked away from us over the mountain.The big one was about 6-7 feet tall and about 3-400 pounds.The small one was about 4-5 feet tall and about 100 pounds.After we got over the shock Jimmy and I left and got down the (y) in the road and saw a man on a horse, we stopped and ask the man if his horse was acting funny or if he saw anything strange? He pulled out a BIG gun and told us he was not worried about it. I think that the Bigfoot was looking at him, when it walked over to the side of the mountain and looked down.We stopped in the town of Yoncalla to get something to drink and told some of the people there and they did not care to talk about it, so we left.I hope you take this story seriously, because you are the first that I told it to in a long time. I have always wondered way me, way did I see it. P.S. If you ever need help on finding the Bigfootthat I told you about,let me know. I'd love to go back.Thank you for your timeCharles A. Stephens

ALSO NOTICED: Yes, the man on a horse

OTHER WITNESSES: Two, myself and brother Jimmy

OTHER STORIES: No stories because the towns people don't seem to want to talk to outsiders.I spoke with Mr. Stephens on 7/19 and was able to obtain a few more details of the sighting. Although this incident happened over 20 years ago, he remembers the details clearly.When the animal was first sighted, Mr. Stephens' brother thought for a second that he had seen elk, which made Mr. Stephens look in that direction. It then became clear that the animals were not elk or bear.The animals were tall, very muscular, and walked as a wrestler would. The larger one had arms longer than a man's and very muscular. The younger/smaller one was only a little lighter in color than the other. Both were very dark with the larger one near black in color. Both had rounded heads, like a human. The brothers were shaken up over the incident. Mr Stephens noted that his brother was in such a hurry to get in the car that he injured his lip. Both men seemed a bit surprised by their reception in Yoncalla.
