Location: McQuinn Strip 1972 addition of the Warm Springs Reservation
Description of event: Four years ago he and his companions; Uncle Buddy Parazoo, brother Louis,
and Frenchy Spinal of Warm Springs, now deceased, were elk hunting in
season, Oct.-Nov. The group had all left the main road at the Bear Springs
Ranger Station near Mt. Hood, and cut across the ridges to the McQuinn Strip
1972 addition of the Warm Springs Reservation. What they saw there both
amazed and scared them. In the meadow 800 yards away were two Bigfeet. They
had apparently killed an elk, and were tearing off chunks and eating.
Shortly another came out of the brush to join the group, and later another.
Three were in the 7 foot range, and there was another smaller one maybe 5
There was good viewing as the party watched the action through their rifle
scopes. Concerned for their own safety though, they retreated, worried that
if critters that size could so easily down and kill an elk, they might want
them on their menu for dessert.
On the hike out, Uncle Buddy told of a friend who had seen bigfeet herding
deer for the kill (a high protein diet would help to maintain their bulk,
strength, agility, and high speed).
