Jackson county, OR
Nearest town: Union Creek
Nearest road: Logging Road
Time: early afternoon
Location: Near Crater Lake National Park
Description of event: This was in an area where there was a clear cut on the far side of the ravine which had a creek running through it. There was a logging road where I camped. If I remember correctly, there was a sign attached to a tree stating "DeWalt #16." This was a few miles off the highway to Crater Lake and 50 miles from the parking lot at the VA Domiciliary at White City.
The sound I heard was a loud "bwah" which I never heard before or since. It lasted perhaps 3 seconds and I could not determine the exact direction. I did not try to discover the source of the sound as there was thick underbrush.
Earlier, there had been cattle in the area.
