Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, in part, by various reports published on the BFRO website[1]and by my own experiences at Bigfoot Pond in 2007 and again in 2010.[2] [3] Nonetheless, a cursory view of sightings at Woodbury Wildlife Area suggests considerable activity in this area, both historic[4] and contemporary.[5]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events at Woodbury Wildlife Area are as follows:

  1. The observation, from the truck, of what appeared to be a large tipi-like branch assembly;
  2. The observation of something large, hairy, and brown-coloured, which ducked behind a tree;
  3. The eerie quiet in the woods, as I approached the branch assembly;
  4. The realisation that the tipi-like assembly was, in fact, a shelter-type;
  5. The three loud, clear wood-knocks heard across the ravine;
  6. The faint, answering wood-knocks heard in response to my own;
  7. The sound of bipaedal footsteps in the snow;
  8. The large pile of branches observed across the ravine, possibly a Nest assembly;
  9. The face in the tree, looking directly at me;
  10. The large, slanted-branch assembly observed near the road, but oriented away from it.

These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s),[6] may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC[7] at Woodbury Wildlife Area. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding possible habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.
