  1. Today
  2. I was speaking generally knowing about the BF-like entity and portal. Yes, within 25 miles of SWR there are plenty of BF sightings in the High Uinta's. I never had one there but didn't spend more than a long weekend there. But there were some very specific sightings that had plenty of detail even in the BFRO database. Yes, I think it is a matter of rule-in's / rule-out's. I think enough people have thrown enough money at this phenomenon that it is clear where the next guy will likely wind up with his scorecard. If I had more specifics I'd be happy to PM you.
  3. That Gemora suit looks absolutely horrible. Looks like a mangy wolf man more than a Gorilla. The Heronimous suit looks better...and it aint good.
  4. Ventilating (hand tying hair onto lace) has been around since the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). Maybe longer. 1967 has nothing to do with this specialized skill. As for matching other makeup fabrications, I've done many and they were in many cases indistinguishable from the originals. Replicating the costume Bob H wore wouldn't be any particular challenge.
  5. Could I get a more precise number please? it would be nice to have tenths of a second if possible.
  6. Bull Montana. "Bull" does not have Sasquatch schlong technology. For a female presentation, " Bullette" does not have boobs. Just show Montana from the backside.

    Less than six seconds. 35 inch stride according to my girlfriend
  8. Yet evidently, Gemora did it long before 1967 😁. Have another look... Bill it’s been clear that you are unable to replicate the PGF in suit form. Would you be able to re-create a known suit? Take for example, the image below, which is, in fact a guy in a suit and not a ‘mystery’ to be solved . Forget about funding, who’s paying etc... Could Bill Munns adequately recreate this suit? As as a sort of Control, if you will...
  9. it's a process commonly called "ventilating" and the needle is far smaller than any crochet needle. You can't even see the hook without a magnifying glass. Most good quality men's toupees and the lace front hairline of wigs (plus moustaches and beards) are done this way also. I've done it and once did a full man's aging wig, which took me 35 hours. Experienced wigmakers can do it much faster. There are very few times in all of Hollywood history where somebody tried to make a full hand tied (ventilated) fur body suit.
  10. What’s most interesting is the article’s mention that Gemora himself tied the hair a few strands at a time with a crochet needle.

    "Like walking on carpet" equals trackless area. They know how to not leave tracks.
  12. No. BTW, how long does it take you to walk 16.6 feet?
  13. Thanks Pat. I don’t see a saggy crotch lol. Amazing what they could do with costumes... before 1967... 😁
  14. Bull Montana.....A name that strikes awe in the most devoted of gorilla men ! Where other ape actors worked their primate wonders with elaborate costumes and mechanized masks, Bull Montana played apes... without a mask ! In the 1920 film " Go and Get It" Bull plays a fierce ape man named Ferry. Ferry it seems, was a poor gorilla who had a human brain transplanted into his hairy noggin by a mad scientist. (is there any other kind?) To help Bull channel his inner ape, he was teamed with skilled make-up artists Cecil Holland, and Charles Gemora. Using materials of cotton, colodian, yak hair, and hand carved gorilla dentures, Holland skillfully transformed the hulking ex-boxer into a gruesome gorilla. The great Charles Gemora had the task of making Bull's fur suit, hand tying the hair a few strands at a time with a crochet needle, into a loose weave backing. The beastly team were so successful in their efforts, that five years later, they teamed up again for " The Lost World" 1925. In the Lost World, Bull played an early ancestor of man, who terrorized the Challenger expedition. Bull was filmed fairly close-up, drooling horrifically while peering from behind rocks. This was a true testament to Cecil Holland and Charles Gemora's incredible artistry !
  15. Bipedalist, I am curious about your cryptic note. I don't think Bigelow, NIDS and/or, BASS were researching bigfoot at the SWR or in the surrounding areas. The book tells the story of one guy with night vision binoculars who claims to have seen a cryptic creature come out of a "portal" but he did not call it a bigfoot (because there were not enough details to be extracted from the sighting). I know that Dr. Eric Davis (who is not the guy who saw the creature) is on a Youtube video saying that the creature was bigfoot like (because it was a tall hairy humanoid). However, the book never said it was hairy. It just stated that it was a huge, black humanoid, about six foot tall and 400 lbs. I also don't recall reading about any BF sightings on the property in the Kelleher/Knapp book. Thus, I wonder if your note is about millionaires who study anomalies and invest a lot of money at studying them, and don't get much evidence/results (a general observation instead of a sasquatch specific). I am aware of plenty of BF sightings reports in the high Uintas (north of SWR) and friends of mine had visual encounters over there. I just do not associate SWR with BF. Claims of cattle mutilations, orbs, UFOs, cryptic creatures (wolf, dogman, tall humanoids, etc), invisible entities, yes. If you prefer to discuss this via PM, please let me know I can do that instead. Another key question that you could be raising (that is of much interest to me) is if any of these anomalistic phenomena is knowable with our scientific methods, instruments, and capabilities. Maybe Bigelow did not get the physical evidence or the great video evidence that he was expecting, but he learned much about what the phenomena is not and how weird it truly is.

    And you know this with 100 % certainty.

    I was out checking an area this weekend, as well. Just south of where BC Witness was. I went to the Chilliwack River Valley. Tried to get up to Foley Lake, but there was still a foot and a half of snow. A small avalanche blocked the FSR. ATV's could get over it but the snow was too deep and soft for my truck. I parked it and my wife and I hiked the 5 km up to the lake, instead. After we got back to the vehicle, we went to a forestry campground nearby (no snow there), where a witness had told me that he had experiences nearly every time he camped there. Bipedal footfalls within the campground, pine cone throwing, etc. A beautiful area with tall Pine trees and mossy undergrowth outside the camping boundaries. Like walking on carpet. Definitely going to have to spend a weekend or two there.

  19. No central info point for either. For point 2, look up Almas, yeti, orang pandek, ebu gogo. For point 4, google monster and Loch Ness, Lake Champlain, Lake Illiamna, Flathead Lake, and Lake Ogopogo.
  20. Fair enough, we can agree to disagree on some points. As far as #2 & #4 go is there a definitive resource such as the BFF you would recommend ? I’ll do my own research but a road sign pointing in a direction would help. Both sound interesting.

    Equipment is key, in this case lockers and chains/studs would be ideal.
  22. 2) The reports are uncanny in their similarity with hominin reports in that they are almost universally a northern hemispheric phenomenon, even more so than the himinidn reports. Reports of hominins approach the equator in southeast Asia, but lake monster reports are almost all north of the 45th Parallel from Alaska to Loch Ness to Lake Baikal. 3) There are hominin reports throughout Asia, but not Africa, and the European reports ended with the werewolf stories of the Beast of Gevaudan in the late 18th Century. Russuan, Himalayan, Caucasus, Pamir, and Altai reports persist to this day. 4) Your failure, bot mine 5) No, it proves my point. Reports of giant squid date back to well before Christ, even by well noted writers like Pliny the Elder and Aristotle, yet modern science refused to accept their existence until they got their carcass, and as expected, they sat on their collective duffs until it was delivered like a cold pizza. 6) See point 5. Even worse than the example of the giant squid, gorillas were being exhibited by circus showmen who thought they had big chimps while scientists in nearby institutes waited like ghouls for somebody to deliver the goods to them, but the showmen got them first because their money was better and more reliable, and they were more honorable to deal with than the supposed smart guys. 7) Hundreds of new species uncovered every year don't prove bigfoot. It proves that science isn't as smart as they make themselves out to look, and it proves that there is a whole bunch out there that is still unknown.......at least by the folks who think they know everything........

    ^^ lol. I’d love to try a trail like that but maybe with a more equipped vehicle. A set of studs would be great! My Chebby with studs in the tires would be a blast.

    BC Witness is an old hand driving in the straight up and down Cascades! He probably drifted around that old frozen waterfall!
  26. 1) Agreed 2) Not so much, the reports are not a prevalent and supposedly wide spread 3) Same as 2 with a slight exception maybe for Dogmen 4) Not familiar at all on this one. 5) Had evidence and was proven, if anything I think that kind of proves my point. 6) The same, although 3000 years? Didn’t know it was that long. 7) Ever discovered species doesn’t prove bigfoot. I don’t disagree they are not as widespread, hence I said “lead some to believe.” I’m of the opinion that BF does exist but in relatively low numbers and probably nomadic. I’m also of the opinion it’s proof will even come via serendipity and not a researcher. They seem to be to good at avoiding people, it’ll be a major mistake from one that results in a body.
