I see Bigfoot

Hello everyone,

You may have heard that there have been recent bigfoot sightings in the Happy Camp area of California. Well I can say to that end that there have indeed been sightings in this area. My reason being that I have been the one doing the seeing.

My name, as you may know, is Tara Hauki. I live on the edge of the town of Happy Camp and for the last two years I have been seeing, smelling, hearing, and sensing these creatures up above my yard on the hill behind my house.

I reported my findings to the Great American Bigfoot Research Team through my good friend and colleague, Linda Martin, and when the team showed up and substantiated my suspicions by explaining to me that I lived in a perfect Bigfoot habitat I realized that I may have something there after all. Then the weirdest thing happened. It showed up. I saw it with my own eyes.

I had just awakened at about four in the morning on July 13. I walked into the tiny living room of my single-wide mobil home and opened the noisy sliding glass door that opens to my beautiful acre sized yard full of beautiful, ripe blackberry bushes gently sloping their way down approximately 300 ft. to where they end at the edge of Indian Creek. The sky was dark. Either the moon was not, or had already passed over and I was startled suddenly by the large black creature that had been frightened by the sound of the door scraping open on the worn tracks.

It was large, huge. My first thought was, “My gosh that is a big bear”! Then my brain caught up with the heart in my throat and I said to myself, “That…is not a bear”.

The legs were too long. The arms were way too long and well, it was running on two, not four limbs. It was running very fast. It disappeared around the curve of the berry bushes and made much crashing noises as it ran through the berries to the creek. I was shocked to say the least. I was afraid, but more from apprehension of the unknown more than the fear of a threat. I knew I had been sensing them and here was the proof of my faith that this is exactly what it was. I say “it” and “them”‘ alot because I think there are more than one. Who knows, I sensed them and they are here so maybe my intuition is working for me.

I have much more to share on the other sightings and proofs I have gathered since this whole thing has started. I am writing a book about all of my great Bigfoot adventures. I will be submiting more articles with other exciting encounters as this continues. Stay tuned and write me with your great stories about Bigfoot. I am also very open to any opinions or theories you may have. Be writing again soon.

Bigfoot Expedition News

From Linda Jo Martin:

I’ve been BUSY since the Great American Bigfoot Research Organization expedition team came to town on the 4th of August to establish, kick off, and launch their videostreaming project. Somehow I was drafted to do a bit of office-tending. I also have been helping Elbert Yee with filming. I love these great cameras they’re using. High definition video – using tapes, not CD’s… they produce excellent quality videos and I noticed the Channel 5 News (from NBC in Medford) came here using a very similar camera. His video is now available for viewing on Tom Biscardi’s website: Sample Video

My job includes answering the phone, doing videostreaming, transfering the tapes to the computer and then to the internet, updating the website, and writing articles to add relevant content to the website. I’m trying to write one new article each day, but nothing I’ve written has been posted yet because it must go through an approval process.

Last night Tara had another visitation from something in the middle of the night. She’d left a bowl full of berries in her yard and that’s now gone. I’ll let her tell the details. Whatever it was didn’t go down to the creek so it didn’t show up on the video.

Yesterday I decided to offer Tara posting privileges on this weblog so I’ll be setting that up today. We are both Happy Campers (residents of Happy Camp, California) – so it is a local effort to keep people informed on what’s going on with Bigfoot research in this area.

After loading our Seiad Valley footage into the videostream we went by the Forest Service office to look at maps and to inquire about filming inside the Visitor’s Center. Then we went uphill to a wonderful campground north of Happy Camp – and when I say ‘uphill’ I mean… by the time we got there I thought we were at the top of the world. After driving around the outside of a mountain on a steep, winding, dusty dirt road for about five miles we went through the forest to a place where a large meadow spread out – enough for about 200 miners, packers, and adventurers to camp in.

Back in the 1800’s this was exactly what the area was used for – probably a place for mules to graze while men lay back and looked at the stars or joined in the legendary eternal poker game on a flat rock – a rock that has since been lost. The Forest Service has installed a campground there – appropriately named Poker Flat.

There’s much more to tell about the trip to Poker Flat, but I think I’ll leave the details for the book I’m writing. Both Tara and I are writing books about the experiences we’re going through this summer.

After leaving Poker Flat we drove to Kelly Lake and observed a bald eagle flying, swooping, hunting for fish. We heard the babies calling for food from a nest at the far side of the lake.

More later.

Bigfoot Research – Tom Biscardi

I’ve been busy writing for Happy Camp News where there’s two more Bigfoot-related articles on the front page and a letter to the editor (soon to be one more) and my editorial about why Bigfoot research is happening in Happy Camp.

I love controversy – so I appreciate the two letters to the editor that have been sent to me so far this week.

Tom Biscardi and his team should be back soon – they’re busy with last-minute preparations for the video streaming and filming that will be done in our area, and they expect to be here some time next week.

On the 13th he was here checking out two Bigfoot sightings sites he’s chosen for the video-streaming. I got to see one of them. There’s a picture of what may be Bigfoot bedding materials on the front of Happy Camp News now.

On the 14th Tom was on the Coast to Coast AM talk radio show – where he told the world that they plan to capture soon.

I wrote my editorial yesterday. It’s about time I gave my opinion. I tried to take part in Loren Coleman’s mailing list but my last posting there was “not approved”. There’s a group of guys on that list grumping about and complaining about Tom Biscardi. They’ve never met Tom, as I have, but they’re quick to try to paint him as a scam artist.

Listen people – I’ll tell you the truth. I’ve been with Tom while he was investigating sightings around here and he doesn’t come off as anything but a very sincere truth-seeker who’s also interested in making a lot of money with his promotion skills. Yes, Tom is a music promoter, heavily into the entertainment industry. However he is very honest with his Bigfoot research. He will promote it and try to make money to pay all the people who have helped him, the investors, etc, but his main interest is in finding the evidence to prove to the world that Bigfoot exists.

So give him a break. I’ve asked for evidence that he’s pulling a hoax and nobody has it – but there’s still complainers even among the so-called intellectuals in Bigfoot research. It is just disrespectful, ungracious, and undignified.

So far the only “evidence” I’ve been given about a hoax is a few old newspaper articles saying someone Biscardi used to know was accused of something. Now that proves nothing. I’m in the news business and I know for fact that newspapers get the story wrong OFTEN – and I can see why because of limited research time and the fast turnaround time necessary to fill a newspaper day after day or week after week. So a news story is not convincing to me. I want real proof, or less grumbling.

I have a feeling that some long-time researchers are a tad bit jealous of Biscardi’s success – not only his success in finding sighting reports and tracking them – but also his success in promoting himself and the Great American Bigfoot Research Organization. I can understand that. But don’t lose your dignity over it!

In time I expect Tom Biscardi will bring in a Bigfoot. It might not be within two weeks as he claimed on Coast to Coast AM. That was a rough estimate on the spur of the moment. But this is what I really expect – that he will keep at it and keep ferreting the creatures out until he is able to capture one for science. Either that, or he could die trying and I surely hope that doesn’t happen!

P.S. Here’s the text of the email that Loren Coleman didn’t approve for his mailing list – obstensibly because I failed to put “Happy Camp, California” under my name at the end though I’d announced in an earlier posting that I am editor of Happy Camp News.

First, here’s the refusal notice from Yahoo:

And now, my unapproved email:

There’s two sides to every story. The way I heard it from Tom was that their research was genuine but they (he and Ivan Marx) were taken advantage of and products of their research were stolen and used without their permission. In other words they felt they got burned and it caused some heartache and bad feelings.

So if you have proof that the films were a hoax, what is it? I saw the first film and it didn’t look at all faked. The three films are for sale on his website, http://www.greatamericanbigfoot.com .

I think if I put a lot of effort into researching Bigfoot in the field, put my life on the line, and devoted a lot of my time to it – if then the work I’d done was discounted in the way you describe, (see Loren Coleman’s post) … if all that happened to me, I’d be a bit put out and defensive too.

Tom Biscardi took a few years off after getting burned and called such things as “a well-known bluffer”. But now he’s back and ready to finish what he started, this time with better backup. He’s very serious about capturing Bigfoot just as are many others, but he’s set up with financial and organizational backing, and ready to do it now.

Now on a personal note, I’ve met him and he’s not a bad guy. He’s likable and he’s got ethics. He doesn’t say something is evidence of Bigfoot when it’s not, but at the same time he knows real Bigfoot evidence when he sees it.

I don’t mean this as any criticism of you, Mr. Coleman. I heard you on Coast to Coast AM too and the main reasons I emailed Tom Biscardi instead were that he specializes only in Bigfoot research (whereas you have wider interests) and because he had a sighting here in Northern California in April – and that was his fifth sighting. I wanted someone who could come in here and verify for the community that the Bigfoot sightings here are valid. He’s done that, and found other evidence of which I have no direct knowledge that interested him in coming back here to attempt a capture.


I’m posting this here so people will know that if it seems that they’re getting only one side of the story on the Bigfoot mailing list, the reason may be that there’s some censorship going on. Coleman has the right to do this because he is the group’s owner – but my feeling is that it interferes with a full investigation of the truth.

My earlier posting to that list stating clearly who I am and where I’m from:

From: Klamath Design
Date: Wed Jun 29, 2005 5:02 am
Subject: Happy Camp Sighting June 25


I’m new to Bigfoot research and to your mailing list, however have been intrigued by Bigfoot reports and information for many years. My current interest is due to being editor of a small town news site, Happy Camp News. Our town is in the center of the Klamath National Forest, surrounded by three large wilderness areas: the Marble Mountain Wilderness, the Siskiyou Wilderness, and the Klamath Wilderness. We have lots of sightings here.

I just wrote an article about a new sighting and it is at this time posted on the front page of my news website: http://www.happycampnews.com

Thought you might like to have a look in case you didn’t get the information yet.

Bigfoot researcher visits Happy Camp

Today another Bigfoot researcher visited Happy Camp. I stopped by JavaBob’s Bigfoot Deli to get my son something cold to drink, and found Bob talking to Brandon Tennant of Idaho. He told me about a mountain near where he lives and of all the Bigfoot sightings that have taken place there over the course of many decades. He’s planning a Bigfoot event there for next June – I’ll be sure to post when I get specific news of time, place, and dates. I’m not sure if it will be a street fair somewhat like our Happy Camp Bigfoot Jamboree, or a conference or something else where Sasquatch research takes place.
