  1. Merged the two threads on this topic and deleted what was basically a duplicate post by Airdale.
  2. Pretty sure that is not a bear. I doubt that a bear can pick up leaves (as opposed to "raking" them) and put them on something as it looks like is being done on this video (maybe they can and I am just not knowledgible...). So what are the other options ? Hoax, primate video from someplace else (yes, a hoax as well) being passed off as trail cam footage, or maybe the real thing. Better than most of what you see these days, but sadly, still inconclusive.
  3. Sad story. Here is the latest from May on it. http://www.syracuse.com/state/index.ssf/2016/05/adirondacks_visitors_asked_to_look_for_signs_of_hunter_82_missing_since_november.html Guessing he might have fallen in one of the marshes or ponds, since no trace was ever found.
  4. Been a pretty normal summer here in VA weather-wise, as far as I can tell. However, for some reason, bears are much more active this year than they have been in the past. I think Shenandoah National Park has been partially closed twice due to bear sightings. Did not see it, but one came through during the night about a month ago and tore up a couple of our bird feeders. Neighbors saw one cross the road about a half mile down the road from us a couple of weeks ago. While this has nothing to do with Bigfoot, there is something going on somewhat out of the ordinary that has the bears on the move. I have not heard of any increase in Bigfoot sightings around here, but then I am not plugged into any networks where I would get "inside" information like that.
  5. I have seen a couple of reports where a grower reported a sighting, but it was to associates and not officially. I would think that if a grower were to find significant losses from BF eating their crop, they would try to remedy the situation... It is my understanding that those growing areas are very well defended and boobytrapped. Doubt that BF gets very close to them if they can avoid it.
  6. Paulides is going to be on Coast To Coast this coming Sunday night/Monday morning (31 July/1 August). From what they teased, he has a new 411 book coming out.
  7. OK, it lasted for almost 10 minutes and multiple pics were taken. Show them all, at least one has to be decent....right? The one posted might be OK if it can be blown up some.
  8. There was another TR incident where two BF were fighting and the larger one killed the smaller one by doing the same (and then cannibalized it). Copper Mountain incident, if I remember correctly. Again, as Ray cautions, use your Skepticals....
  9. I do believe that the CD has the original issues scanned in, which would include the pics in each issue. However, I have heard some say that the scan is not great and some of the issues are hard to read. I have not seen the CD so I cannot say what the quality of the imagery (text and pics) is. Three out of the four Amazon reviews are positive: http://www.amazon.com/Track-Record-Bigfoot-Encyclopedia/dp/0615321593?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0 Even though the online version is without pictures, I do not recall any follow-up in subsequent issues regarding this incident. It has been some time since I have gone through them, so I may have just forgotten about any follow-up references if they occurred.
  10. I think that I have read all of the issues of the TR online and do not recall Ray mentioning that Mr. Smith, or any of the other witnesses, ever brought the photos in. I think that he would have discussed it the TR if that had occurred. If they had been sent to Ray, I believe he would have published them if given permission. The fact that Ray says that we should view this case with our Skepticals on, is pretty telling in my opinion. This would be a great incident if it happened, however, I think there is plenty to be suspicious about it. By the way, NABS has the complete set on CD for less than $20.00. http://www.nabigfootsearch.com/catalog/item/6180213/7329116.htm Is some of the stuff really, really out there? Yes, but you will get plenty of hours of enjoyment from reading it. Can also be found here online: http://web.archive.org/web/20041011000259/http://www.internationalbigfootsociety.com/html/the_track_record.php
  11. Tracking down one Mr. Ronald (Ronnie) Smith, big game hunter, would be a start on getting to the bottom of this "incident".
  12. They were asking for a few dollars to defray their expenses and Ray was not forthcoming. The witnesses are still in possession of the photos and skin.
  13. Interesting tale, but just that, a tale. At least until the pictures are released.....
  14. Just watched an episode of Tornado Alley on The Weather Channel. This particular show was called Twisted Believers and dealt with paranormal incidents associated with tornadoes. Broken into three segments, it covered ghosts in Alabama, UFOs in Indiana, and Bigfoot in Florida. I was pretty interested in the Bigfoot segment until they introduced the main human subject as Dave Shealy, which lost all credibility at that point. His theory is that Bigfoot will move into tornado damaged areas in order to capitalize on food supplies that are easier to find after the storm due to lack of cover. In short, he visits a tornado ravaged area of Florida and heads into the woods at night in search of Bigfoot. He and his associate wander through the woods, find a footprint (which might be a gator print), take a cast, and call it a night. Not a lot, but then I did not expect much after the first 20 seconds or so. They did refer to him as a Wildlife Researcher.... Oh well....
  15. Yes, FarArcher, that is another theme I have come across in regards to shooting a specimen (and as Branco alluded to). Most folks think they do not have enough gun to bring down one of them, regardless of what they are toting. And there is always that thought there could be more than one of them out there as well.
