REPORT DETAIL

Description of event: AS STATED MY MOTHER'S HAIR DRESSER INVITED HER TO GO DEER HUNTING WITH HER UP IN THE OREGON MOUNTAINS. AT THE TIME WE LIVE RIGHT ON THE CAL/ORE BORDER IN A LITTLE TOWN CALLED DORRIS.
MY MOTHER TOLD ME THAT UNLIKE SERIOUS HUNTERS, THEY DIDN'T GET OUT INTO THE WOODS BEFORE DAYLIGHT,IN FACT THEY SPENT MOST OF THE MORNING DRIVING TO THE LOCATION SOMEWHERE BETWEEN KLAMATH FALLS AND MEDFORD OREGON. SHE SAID THEY HAD DROVE
IN "THE STICKS" FOR QUITE AWHILE AND NEVER SAW ANOTHER SOUL.SHE DESCRIBED THE AREA AS "THICK WOODS" AND SOME SMALL "MEADOW TYPE AREAS".
THEY FOUND A PLACE TO PARK AND SPLIT UP ON FOOT.
MOM STAYED PRETTY CLOSE TO THE TRUCK, WHILE HER FRIEND WALKED ON UP THE ROAD AND AROUND THE BEND.
A LITTLE MORE THAN AN HOUR LATER HER FRIEND RETURNED IN SOMEWHAT OF A HURRY AND A LITTLE BIT SHAKEN, SHE WANTEND MY MOM TO COME SEE THESE TRACKS SHE HAD FOUND, SHE SAID THEY WERE "HUGE"
AND THAT SHE HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THEM BEFORE, AND FRANKLY THEY SCARED HER, SHE TOLD MY MOM SHE WANTED HER TO COME BECAUSE SHE HAD THE "BIGGER GUN" (MY MOM SAID SHE HAD A 30/06 AND
HER FRIEND CARRIED A 30/30) WHEN THEY ARRIVED MY
MOTHER WAS SHOCKED AT THE TRACKS THAT SHE SAW, HER FRIEND SAID "MAYBE THEY'RE ELK" BUT MY MOTHER TOLD ME THAT NOTHING WITH HOOVES MADE THESE TRACKS. SHE SAID THEY LOOKED [like] YOURS OR MY "BARE
FOOT" ONLY THEY WERE "HUGE". THEY BOTH BECAME VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND LEFT AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. I WAS SITTING HERE AT MY COMPUTER WHEN MY MOTHER RELATED THIS STORY TO ME, WHEN I ASKED HER HOW BIG THE TRACKS WERE, SHE STARTED TO SHOW ME WITH HER HANDS AND THEN SHE STOPPED AND SAID "THEY WERE AS BIG AS THAT THING RIGHT THERE" AND POINTED AT MY KEYBOARD WICH IS 17 INCHES LONG
AND ABOUT 10 INCHES AT THE WIDEST POINT.
