  • Have you ever had an encounter with a sasquatch-like creature?
  1. I don't believe that they have ever existed
  2. Funny how hunters pull out 1200lbs moose on a regular basis, but an 800lbs sasquatch would present a problem
  3. When I said the story behind it I was including the story of sasquatch avoiding the expeditions trail cameras, as well as their avoidance of the mud trap According to Thom Powell in his book "The Locals" they set the fruit in the mud trap because the sasquatch knew to avoid the camera traps. So I was talking about the larger point of sasquatch recognizing and avoiding man made traps of any sort On this point we can agree to disagree
  4. Then we will agree to disagree, I see nothing in that cast, much less the story behind the cast that would lead me to believe that a sasquatch did that. I have personally seen an cow elk get up out of a wallow without leaving a print inside of the body impression (she did leave slide marks though), but I did see tracks outside the wallow Actually to be fully factual I saw the elk in the wallow, saw her boyfriend and as I stalked closer to get a better shot at him I went around behind a tree. Anot her elk that I didn't see, saw me and they all took off, so I didn't actually see her get up, but I did see her rump dissappear in the distance I would be more inclined to believe in a solo footprint, because I have found single tracks of many animals caused no doubt by stepping into a small puddle
  5. So how does that series of slides explain the "heel slide" and "butt mark" I think the excerpt from Thom Powell'so book explained the situation quite well. Using this scenario we are supposed to believe that a sasquatch knowingly approached a "trap" Understood to not allow their footprints to be left in the mud, but thought nothing about leaving a body print, hand print and hair patterns in that same trap All the while elk prints were found in the surrounding area
  6. According to Joe there were elk prints in the surrounding area, but he thinks they are oldet. you discount elk because they don't levitate, well I put to you neither do sasquatch
  7. Then there should be a trail from crawling. It was mud after all The quote below is taken from Thom Powell's book "The Locals" "It worked! They ate the fruit! A bigfoot lay across the mud so it could reach the fruit without leaving footprints. There's a big print and a whole bunch of other stuff in the mud! You got to come see this!" Minutes later, we were all staring in disbelief at the impressions in the mud almost a mile away from camp. The fruit had been placed in the center of a muddy flat beside a logging road where a puddle had stood the day before. The puddle was situated in the middle of a large gravel pull-out that was used to park and turn around logging trucks. Rainwater had fonned the puddle only a few hours before. Derek found this superb spot on his midnight drive and he positioned a pile of fruit in the center of the disappearing puddle. Nothing could reach the apples, peaches, and cantaloupes he left without leaving some kind of trace. As soon as they arrived at the spot the next morning, Derek, Rick, and LeRoy noticed that some of the fruit was gone. It took a little longer to figure out why. Rick was the first to put the pieces together and interpret the unusual marks in the mud. The discussion of the previous night was still fresh in his mind. In front of him lay the evidence to support my most unlikely-sounding position of the night before: Bigfoots DO know a set-up when they see one! But fresh, homegrown produce is a rare treat for a bigfoot who resides at high elevation. Our bait must have been irresistible and a bigfoot went after it, leaving a lower torso impression, but no footprints, in the mud. Could we be seeing strong evidence that bigfoots will do what they can to avoid leaving obvious tracks? No other explanation seemed to fit. Some of the fruit was gone, some lay in bits around the area, and a large, hair-covered fonn with long, thick arms and legs left an impression of its lower body in the mud next to the fruit. When he arrived at the site, the first thing recognized by Rick Noll was a heel impression. Then he noticed what appeared for all the world to be the impression of hair-covered but-tocks. Leroy and Derrick were back by his side and they collectively resolved the impression of a thigh, an elbow, a forearm and finally a fist and finger marks. That's when they dashed back to camp to show the rest of us what resulted from the fruit-baiting experiment.
  8. How exactly did a sasquatch leave that print without leaving footprints in the surrounding mud This same mud that contained elk tracks
  9. Elk tracks in the mud as claimed by witnesses But not an elk cast No sasquatch tracks cast/found in the surrounding mud But is a sasquatch cast Seems reasonable to me And to be fair Thom Powell is a middle school science teacher with a degree in Environmental Education
  10. I just watched it just search Thomas Steenburg, it is one of the videos on his channel
  11. I can't get the link to work on YouTube search Thomas Steenburg Mysterious Bigfoot Howls? Solved
  12. Elk tracks in the mud as claimed by witnesses But not an elk cast No sasquatch tracks cast/found in the surrounding mud But is a sasquatch cast Seems reasonable to me
  13. I think the whole large predator concept is incorrect Until someone can explain why an animal that supposedly hunts all manner of big game, has consistently left livestock alone (with possible rare exceptions) An 800 lbs sasquatch eating a similar diet to a moose or elk, would leave a similar ecological footprint An 800 lbs omnivore that primarily ate vegitation supplemented with small game, coastal wildlife (fish, shellfish ect) and scavaging big game would probably leave an ecological footprint similar to a bear The only way "avoidance" would work as a compelling reason on why lifestock is left alone, is if you are giving them human level intelligence and reasoning ability Many sasquatch sightings are reported near developed areas, and if these reports are to be believed then we need to re-examine what we think they eat I live close to the birthplace of the modern sasquatch legend, in this area we have a lot of corn crops, blueberry crops, dairy farms and all sorts of other farms However what we don't have is a tradition of crop raiding or livestock poaching
  14. I think they may browse on similar vegetation as an elk or moose This also may be a time when they may scavenge This also part of the reason that I think if sasquatch exist, then they are limited to areas such as the PNW, where they can avoid most of the real winter conditions that much of the continent goes through every known large omnivore or carnivore in North America is well known to cattlemen an sheep herders, if sasquatch was either then they would not be a mystery IMHO
  15. Same here most outdoorsman I know are skeptics, but to claim that they don't know how to identify the animals in their area is hogwash
