These tours are operated with permission from the United States Forest Service under special use
permit. Tours into the Gifford Pinchot National Forest are greatly affected by weather conditions
including snowfall which affects road and trail access along with forest fires and fire restriction.

The Country

The majority of our tours take place within the Gifford Pinchot National Forest by special use permit from the U.S.F.S.  The Gifford Pinchot straddles the crest of the rugged Cascade Mountain Range and west including wilderness areas, amazing river valleys, incredible volcanic peaks, cave systems, dense forests and a biome which includes many large game species, small game and predators along with the most magnificent trees in the Pacific Northwest.
The Gifford Pinchot has a very high number of Bigfoot sightings annually and is prime habitat to experience an encounter while searching for these creatures.

Calling with a “knock” instrument

Some of most exciting moments of the adventure tour are when we set up at strategic locations and attempt to elicit an auditory response from a bigfoot.  We use the traditional wood knock method (not completely understood but widely recognized as a form of communication for bigfoot), and we practice imitating “whoop” and howls with our clients.
We believe one method of luring in a bigfoot, who is both a curious creature and an apex predator, is by using what is known as a “predator” call.  This method and other techniques we use, along with our philosophy while exploring the back country in pursuit of these creatures is what we believe sets us apart from “reality TV” and the associated hyperbole.
These calling methods have proven themselves to us, drawing bigfoot in (x3) and on at least one occasion while in the shadow of Mount Adams caused an extended mournful howling session by what seemed to be a lonely bigfoot. (The next morning, we were unable to find tracks from the direction of where this creature had been, but we found many un-surveyed volcanic cave openings under the large Old Growth Douglas Fir in the area, the ground sounding hollow when struck with large rocks, plus other anecdotal observation)


Large portions of the tour are dedicated to observation of habitat and follow-up both during and after a calling session.  This habitat includes mountain slopes, dense forests, river valleys, and less vegetated areas such as snow fields, alpine areas and clear cuts.  We utilize binoculars, spotting scope, drone surveillance, review of trail/game cameras, night vision and thermal optics along with auditory recording of forest sounds consisting of animal and bird calls.

Our Clients 

Our clients come from around the world and all walks of life.  They include enthusiasts, skeptics, and adventurous persons of all ages.  Many of our clients have had personal experiences in Bigfoot Country and sharing stories around the campfire or while waiting for nightfall in a blind enrich all of our lives.

Trail/Game Cameras

Setting up and later checking trail “cams” with our clients provides better understanding of game movement and what is out there.  Tour participants assist in finding strategic locations for the cameras and view past activity.
We consistently capture images of game animals including deer and elk along with predatory species such as bear, cougar, bobcat and coyote.

Night Vision/Thermal

We utilize handheld thermal devices and night vision helping to see and document nocturnal forest creatures. These tools are equipped with cameras and we anticipate capturing a bigfoot on camera.
Part of our equipment consists of Seek Thermal cameras clients are able to use on their own phones to capture night thermal images.


Wild animal track identification on game trails and riverbanks where found, along with using plaster of paris to capture the imprint has proven to be a popular tour addition.
Our clients have cast and brought the imprints home with them bear, cougar, elk, deer, coyote, bobcat and racoon tracks.  We carry with us for the purpose of discussion and wonderment two excellent castings of a large bi-pedal in western Washington.  These castings were made by former deputy Dennis Heryford where the tracks were discovered at what is called Abbot Hill.  Dennis and his wife Jackie Heryford are personal friends of ours and Dennis graciously has given us copies of all of his field reports including pictures from his investigations as a law enforcement officer.
This Abbott Hill location is less than two miles from where Ray had a face-to-face encounter with a bigfoot in 1982.  The Abbott Hill track discovery and Ray’s encounter were two weeks apart.
