Wild Man Is Said To Rule Unexplored Empire
Anchorage, Alaska, Jan. 19, [?]
Out of the isolated district north of Bristol Bay comes a tale of the Wild Man of the Nushagak –
a nebulous terror jealously guarding an empire which even on the larger maps, is an
unexplored white patch with dotted lines for streams.
Charles J. Dumbolton, sourdough prospector of many years in Yukon and Klondike valley
camps, told the story today after arriving by plane from a season of prospecting 125 miles
from the nearest settlement.
The wild man is believed in so firmly, by the few men in the area, that they have drawn a
voluntary boundary to their northern trips. And, while he made no effort to investigate the
wild man’s authenticity, Dumbolton said he found trappers feared to venture beyond their
own established frontier, the King Salmon River.
He said the wild man, perhaps some creature crazed by loneliness, has been reported seen
several times, and is blamed for the disappearance of several men who have ventured into
the region of the Upper Nushagak and its tributaries the past several seasons.
The wild man’s empire is a vast region between the south flowing Upper Nushagak and the
westward flowing middle course of the Kushkokwim.
In the early days of the Klondike gold rush, sourdoughs remember, Dumbolton drove in
herds of cattle over the Dalton Trail, from Haines to Selkirk, slaughtering them at Selkirk and
rafting the beef down to Dawson.
Later he turned to mining, taking out hundreds of thousands of dollars in gold. He’s still
pursuing that will-o-the-wisp of prospectors-luck and the luring nuggets.
|The primary focus of my research, field investigation and expeditions are in the interior
of Alaska and the border area of the Yukon Territory.
"Is Sasquatch really in Alaska?"
Well, the short answer is: Yes!
You see, most people associate Sasquatch with remote sections of northern California,
Oregon, Washington, Idaho and even British Columbia. It's a well know fact that those
areas have a high concentration of Sasquatch, but those areas are not the only place to
Sasquatch is in Alaska and people are talking about him. Through my research, I have
discovered that Alaska has over a century of recorded encounters. The oral history of
Sasquatch among Alaska's native peoples, as with other native groups, is even older.
I found documented sightings and encounters as well as oral history that stretched from
the fern laden rain forests of the southeast to the tundra and muskeg of the arctic. I can't
think of any other animal in Alaska that has that broad of a range other than perhaps a
coyote. Even Alaska's three species of bears, the black bear, the grizzly bear and the
polar bear don't boast that big of a range.

One left track was found near a local hiking trail by four bear hunters and reported directly to
Sasquatch Tracker. Upon initial examination, the true track measured 13 inches long and 5
inches wide and was an average of 1.5 inches in depth. After removing forest debris from
the track, 5 separate toe impressions were visible with a slight indentation just below the ball
of the foot suggestive of a mid-tarsal break. No other tracks or signs were discovered. One
lone track found like this is usually attributed to a stone being removed from the earth,
however the toe impressions indicated otherwise.
Incidentally, this is one of several reports made by experienced local bear hunters who are
very familiar with what bear tracks should look like.
The surrounding area is heavily forested with alders, birch, black spruce, mushrooms, wild
arctic roses, low bush cranberries and numerous grasses. Intermittent creeks and drainages
abound in the area and it is the opinion of Sasquatch Tracker that this area has the resources
to support at least one individual Boreal Sasquatch.

|In the May 2014 issue of BIGFOOT TIMES it was pointed out that the 1962 Colorado Roosevelt
National Forest film made by the late Alfred Bouvier predated the famous P-G film (1967) by
several years. This makes the Bouvier film the oldest of its kind in the United States.
However, BIGFOOT TIMES publisher Daniel Perez pointed out that there may be an even
older film made by an uncle of the late Joan Jeffers. In a discussion with Jeffers before her
passing, Perez learned that in 1948, Jeffers' uncle had a Bigfoot encounter and shot an 8mm
film of it in Mountain View, Alaska, north of Anchorage. Perez said the legendary John Green
had given him information, adding that the "uncle was always interested in Sasquatch
information and had told her father he had seen one and filmed it..." Green further added
that the subject was "... just something tall and hairy walking through a field in Alaska."
The film is reported to be just a few seconds in length and it was first viewed by Jeffers in
1991 while making a video of 8mm family movies. Perez was able to speak with Jeffers in
1994 and learned that "the film was shot with large electrical towers nearby and that her aunt
(Jeffers' aunt) had witnessed the event as her husband shot the film while driving a truck
along a road."
This makes the 1948 Mountain View film the oldest of its kind in North America. While many
could argue that it is the oldest of its kind in the United States, it should be noted that Alaska
was just a territory in 1948 and didn't have statehood until 1959.

|As reported in the Delta Discovery.
On July 4, 2014, around 8:30 am, I rode down to the beach on my ATV below Hooper Bay to
check for driftwood. Within 20 minutes or so, I got to the big rotten walrus that had beached
earlier this spring on the south side of the Nuvuk Spit.
When I was about 300 yards or so away, I saw something bobbing up and down from each
side of the super-sized walrus (probably due to the stomach being bloated). The walrus is
decaying and rotting. The right arm bone is showing with the meat rolled down from being
rotten. About five days earlier, I had seen a raven picking on the walrus and figured that was
it until I got closer and realized it wasn't a raven....
