  1. Absolutely. And a higher, extremely intelligent primate that is as in-tuned (sp?) with its environment as these things are ? Don't hold your breath waiting to bump in to one after creeping up on it.
  2. With you all the way, on everything bar the last sentence...;)
  3. Absolutely, and the reports back that up too as reports from human habitations rise in the winter in certain colder states (WA for sure) than what other winter reports do, even driving. Homesteads imo are bait stations.
  4. I also think that so many of our descriptions of what "we" hear are described wrong where this subject and noises are concerned. A thud is a thump, a howl is a scream and a thump is a knock etc etc etc. Just a tonne of weird noises in the woods.
  5. Good stuff as always Trog, thank you for sharing. The White/Grey/Yellow have always intrigued me, i in no way think we're talking albino here but i do wonder if we'd be talking about, as in Humans, if it's an age thing possibly ? I've read reports of little ones being light in colour, and ones that the witness believed to be older animals too.
  6. I thought i'd get something going with regards to our wonderful Database (SSR) we're building and have been doing now for the best part of five years now. I wanted to share with you and give you an insight in to how i view the numbers, which is formed by my day job as a Sports Performance Analyst dealing with numbers and translating them in to plain English each and every day. Anyway, if anybody has any specific they want me to look in to and share, either geographical or regarding creature behaviour/description, just shout and i'll do my best to answer soon enough. Here's some tidbits anyway and i will add numbers that are relevant by month/season etc as we go along. Hope you enjoy, here's some random numbers that i thought were interesting. ==== The State of Illinois makes up 16% of all Actual Visual Sightings in the Database from the Fall over the last five years across the entire North American Continent (62). Of those Reports from IL, only one is from a part of the night when the Moon is visible. Where the last 10 years are concerned, the percentage of Reports from IL jumps to from 16% to 19% (a 19% increase) of all Actual Visual Sightings in the Database from the Fall over the last five years across the entire North American Continent (129) with an even number of Reports from parts of the nights when the moon is and isn't visible. ==== Not one Actual Visual Sighting Report from WA State in the last 10 years in the Fall has been from the time of a night when the Moon has been visible. In the 10 years prior to that, every single night report in Fall that was an Actual Visual Sighting was on a night when the moon was visible. ==== 52% of all #Missouri Non Visual Vocalization Reports are from Fall. Of those Reports, 91% come from hours of darkness. ==== For all you WA State year round field researchers, it should be noted that from the near 600 total reports we have for the State, 83% of all Knock Reports in the Fall at night have come at times of night when the moon is not visible. This compares to 44% in the Winter, 71% in the Spring and 51% in the Summer. ==== 32% of all Actual Visual Sighting Reports from across the North American Continent in November and December (241) have been from witnesses when driving. For WA State, that numbers rises to 46% For IL, that number drops to 21%. For MI that number rises to 38%. ==== November in Washington State. Of the eight Moon Phases, the Full Moon gives a 200% higher chance of a report than any other Moon Phase in the month of November where night time reports are concerned, based on the 44 reports we have in the database. The Full Moon Phase for this coming November is the 14th. ==== The Olympic Peninsula in WA. 70% of all Actual Visual Reports in the last 10 years are from Fall and Winter. ==== From the 42 Reports we have from Missouri in the last 10 years, 43% (18) have been in the Fall, with 92% coming in the hours of darkness and 83% of those night reports coming at times of the night when the Moon isn't visible. ==== In the last 5 years in WA State's South Cascades Geographical Zone, Pierce County has given us a total of 76% of all Fall Reports. The prior 5 years to that, Pierce County made up just 13% of all Fall Reports from the same Geographical Zone. That's a 485% (four hundred and eighty five) increase in Reports in the last 5 years. ==== We are currently averaging 4 Reports each Fall from Illinois in the last 10 years (39 in Total), and it should be noted that 67% of Fall reports from the last 3 years have come on nights with a Full Moon. Next Full Moon is November 14th. ==== In the month of October over the last 10 years in the State of WA, 93% of all hours of darkness Reports have come at times of the night when the Moon has not been visible. Interesting to note that even though that % is so high, no reports are from nights of the New Moon, the phase when the Moon would generally not be visible at all in hours of darkness. ==== WA State's stunning North Cascade Geographical Zone makes up a total of 19% of all of the State's 232 Actual Visual Reports throughout the Year. That number jumps to 25% for Fall Reports (a 32% increase), and 32% for Fall Reports in the last 10 years (a 68% increase). ==== Ohio : 141 Actual Visual Reports : 18 Reports of White/Grey/Yellow Animals (13%) 21 Reports of Black Animals (15%) 35 Reports of Brown Animals (25%) 14 Reports of Dark Brown Animals (10%) 19 Reports of Dark Animals (13%) 3 Reports of Cinnamon Animals (2%) 21% of all reports with no colour determined. ==== Focus on Illinois Actual Visual Sightings. Fall makes up 42% of all reports. October alone makes up 21% of all reports. When the Moon is visible, the consecutive Moon Phases of the First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon and Waning Gibbous make up 83% of all reports in the hours of darkness throughout Fall. That number with the same parameters as the above, rises to 86% for the month of October alone. ==== 95 Fall Reports in from WA State since the turn of the Century :35% coming from WA's South Cascades Geographical Zone. 34% coming from the Olympic Peninsula and Willapa Hills. 17% from the North Cascades.14% from Eastern WA. ==== Deep in to Fall now, we take a look at some of the more top heavy States where Reports are concerned and look at how Fall represents the Sighting %'s across North America. Washington : Total of 584 Reports Florida : Total of 130 Reports Michigan : Total of 189 Reports Illinois : Total of 209 Reports Interesting to note that where the Illinois Actual Visual Reports are concerned, the Full Moon Phase gives a 133% more probability of a Sighting than any other Moon Phase. Where Michigan Actual Visual Sighting Reports are concerned, it's a complete role reversal, with the New Moon Phase giving a 300% more probability of a Sighting than any other Moon Phase. Both States have October as their most common Month for Reports with these search parameters. ====
  7. Been thinking about this recently, what do you think/know they do to conceal them, their noises and all round stimulation, and keep them safe ? Not interested in non knower/believer comments, they'll offer nothing constructive to the topic of this thread. Fire at will.
  8. I'm fully aware of memory retention and its limits too, i can assure you, i just completed the toughest memory retention geography test on the planet. Do/Did i write down info on every Sasquatch video i watch ? Absolutely not. Can anyone back me up on this ? I have no idea. Is there anything in the BFF Archives about this ? I don't know, have a look. Anyone willing to check ? Not me, i couldn't care less if anyone believes what i'm saying or not, i'm just telling you that the first time i saw that video it was purported, by whoever and wherever the video was being put out there, to be from the Olympic Peninsula and i know it was well before LFTBM came out for sure. I take an interest in all WA related Sasquatch bits and bobs and this one for some reason, stuck. If you're so interested in this for whatever reason, i'm surprised you're asking if there are others willing to spend their own time finding x and y for you. That's not really how it works. In the words of my great late Nan, "Get off your **** and do it yourself."..;)
  9. Definitely NW, well it was definitely purported to be from the Olympic Peninsula when I first saw it. Can't be certain of the year's however but certainly before LFTBM came out, most definitely. I think it could most definitely be 10 years back I first saw that vid. I have a geeky, warped ability to remember certain things like this where this subject is concerned for some reason..;) The original video I saw had it titled as such if I remember right, or at least in the description of the video. Possibly YouTube but I can't recall for sure.
  10. This Guy kills me lol.
  11. The subject in the screen shot above from Night Walker is from the movie " Letters from the Big Man." 100,000,000%. The subject with the alleged baby however is from a video shot way before that and i'd say i first viewed it around 8/10 years where it was proposed to be from the Olympic Peninsula. So whether that was shot (film wise) by them, with that same costume, maybe so, but it would have been done years before that movie came out.
  12. I agree in the main, belief isn't my cup of tea whatsoever and I struggle to understand it to be honest, in many walks of life in its many way, shapes and forms.. A sighting on the other hand is a different ball game altogether though and knocks belief in to orbit.
  13. I'll have a guess. In the year or so that you've been interested in the subject, you've come to the conclusion that they don't exist for a number of reasons that are logical to you and enjoy the feeling of being superior to other members who do "believe/know" because you know best, hence the "knowing wink"emoticon which suggests that something is a joke or a secret ?
  14. There's a tonne of human activity that can be attributed to these "knocks" etc that we assume is being done by Sasquatch. Took a friend to the airport the other day and was talking about Madagascar where he sometimes spends time off the boats, he said that the locals had a kind of unwritten language that they use that involves pops and clicks of their mouths that he couldn't believe how much noise was actually generated from it. I'd bet my bottom dollar that these "knocks" we hear aren't just wood on wood, and come from all sorts of actions like clasps and pops done physically by Sasquatches.
  15. It would be if it was true, but I highly doubt it is. Theres no way for me that this hasn't happened already. Why it then therefore hasn't reached the public domain is a different subject altogether. My belief is that this is the way the "mystery" will be solved and soon with the relative ease across the board to pictures/video now from smartphone technology that increases by the day. However, I will say and I will go to the grave on this, seeing one of these things is one thing, but hitting one on a road and having it spread across the road in front of you, having to immediately accept its existence and then letting the fact that you've just killed one sink in, I highly doubt that your smartphone is going to be one of your top priorities even though you may like to think it would be.
  16. Monster thread here with some great info.
  17. Yep, and yet they apparently fight on Sasfooty's porch.
  18. Good answers, thanks Guys. It's the noises that the young would make and how they'd be concealed in the main that i'm most interesting in i guess.. Good shout with the tree's SWWA.
  19. Again, again, again, we are the bait. Lure them in, they will come.
  20. Two full moons after so I've read MIB, and that's what I'm working on..;) So we have October and November since the mid 90's that I've looked at. Apologies for not being clearer, my bad. I bought this last week too. http://charliealsheimer.com/ca/moon.html I don't notice aggression as I don't re-read the reports but just try to siphone numbers. Specific regions though yes and like I said, whitetail heavy regions too appear to be top heavy.
  21. Not sure about a total solar eclipse but i'm looking in to the Fall Equinox (Rut time) right now and finding some interesting numbers across North America, and specifically Whitetail heavy regions. It's ongoing.
  22. Yes Sir, there's quite a few too.
  23. That's the drum i've been banging for some time now. For once, human self obsession is the right thing. It IS all about us where these things are concerned. We are the bait, the lure.
  24. Cool thanks for clarifying about Cormorant Island. Vancouver Island is stunning yeah, a beautiful art of the world. I always thought they'd be going between islands up there.
  25. What Island ? Vancouver Island ?
