Bigfoot Track Casting

Published: July 11, 2018

On October 20, 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claimed to have had an encounter in the northern California wilderness with a Sasquatch, which they captured on film. The 952 frames of 16mm film constitute the iconic "Bigfoot walking and looking over his shoulder" footage that everyone knows (the "Patterson-Gimlin film"). It was claimed that there were ten footprints found during the encounter and a number of castings were made. This cast is a copy of one of those alleged Bigfoot castings taken from Bluff Creek over 50 years ago.
