Mike’s incredible encounter with Bigfoot in North Louisiana was the inspiration for the Skookum story. Mike’s first encounter with a Bigfoot was in December 1981 while deer hunting in DeSoto Parish in North Louisiana. One afternoon about 3 pm, he was hunting near an old logging road. His deer stand was facing due north in about 12 o’clock position when a young doe deer ran up to his stand and literally laid down next to the stand. She had been running so hard that she was foaming at the mouth. He thought a big buck was chasing her and that he would get to kill him. Out of Mike’s peripheral vision, he saw something hop to a tree that was about 60 ft away.Turning to his right he saw a 7 foot tall, approximately 450 pound creature. He couldn’t believe his eyes. Stunned, Mike thought it was someone in a costume. After about 15 minutes, the creature grew impatient and chased Mike back to his truck, parked along the logging road about a mile away. Since then Mike has seen approximately nine other creatures. Mike Wooley’s personal quest is to prove the existence of these creatures.
