Ohio Bigfoot Conference coordinator and investigator Marc DeWerth handled this report via the BFRO. The above image was captured by a game camera near a soybean field. Barefoot tracks, with clearly visible toes, were also found in the general area. The camera itself looks to be positioned about 5 and a half feet off the ground, so whatever it was, had to be pretty tall.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Marc DeWerth:
Upon receiving this report and the trail cam photo, I was quite compelled to get to the location to scout the area and search for more evidence.
After multiple phone interviews, fellow BFRO investigator Dave BeVier and I followed up with an onsite interview. We quickly found out that they are avid deer hunters and their land is skirted with feed stations all around the edges of their soy bean field.
They have at least three game cameras set-up during the summer to scout deer for the fall season. The husband mentioned that the property has always yielded a very large population of white-tailed deer and plenty of wild turkey.
They typically checked the cameras on a weekly basis to see what's been feeding at the feeding stations. If the camera showed any photos taken, the memory card was removed and taken up to the house (roughly 300 yards away through the woods) to view the pictures on their computer. When they saw the one photo they were baffled on what was in the picture due to the length of the hair. They quickly went back out to the location and looked around. To their amazement, they found a series of four tracks coming from the woods that skirted the same game camera that caught the picture of the hairy, unknown something. The camera was set to take pictures in one minute intervals which would be the reason why the track maker wasn't photographed.
During our field investigation, the tracks that we could still make out, measured close to 14 inches long and 7 inches wide at the ball of the foot and close to 5 inches at the heel. Lucky for us, the witness snapped a few photos of the tracks, making out obvious toe impressions and the typical Sasquatch shaped footprint. This is one of the photos taken by the property owners of one of the 14" x 7" x 5" tracks:
